“The reason people don’t go for help is because there is still stigma. People don’t talk about mental illnesses the way they do other illnesses.” [Maria Bamford] launches into impressions of people talking about physical maladies the way they talk about depression:
“Apparently Steve has cancer. It’s like, fuck off! We all have cancer.”
“I was dating this chick all this time and she let me know she’s been wearing contact lenses. I said whoa, do what you need to do but I don’t believe in all that Western medicine shit. If you wanna see like other people it’s all about attitude. You gotta want it.”I wrote about Maria Bamford, Mike White, and kicking the stigma surrounding mental illness at Splitsider. (via ceedling)
So I haven been real open lately on my life happenings. While I feel that my relationship is good it still seems that we take 1 step forward and 2 back or vice versa so we never get far. I just don’t know how to say I need to move forward for good. Put the pain and the past of work stuff behind us so we can focus on our relationship. I want babies. I want financial stability. Its so hard to stay in the moment and not get ahead of things but its just as difficult to feel that there isn’t a stagnation of staying in one place or situation. While I have been too chicken to really bring up what I want I do feel that he wants to at least get married and that the relationship is what he wants long term.
Then there also is the part of me that just wants to go. Just wants to be free. Do what I want, when I want. Its nice to be able to have that freedom. This is where my feelings get mixed. I want kids, I want a relationship both of which mean that I don’t have that freedom anymore.
LIFE IS A CONUNDRUM
