America, where being sick is a giant fuck you
being disabled is your fault.
Being Transgender. Your fault.
Black. Your fault.
Colored. Your fault.
“You did this.”
“You chose this.”
“You can do better you are faking.”
“You are just entitled.”
“You need to learn respect.”
“You are required to be OK all the time, I was.”
I was really sick last night but I work in a country that being sick is a giant fuck you. I don’t go into work I don’t get paid. Then the kids don’t go to childcare and everything just falls apart.
I fall apart.
Like right now.
Why do you think the fucking suicide rate is so fucking high?
Mental illness isn’t something that only gets 5min of facetime, mental illness needs to be talked about. All the time. People are struggling everywhere.
I’m not OK.
I haven’t been OK.
I don’t know if I’ll ever be OK.
Just thanks for reading OK?
