I hate when you are dating someone and your anxiety and depression just tells you to push them away. but you try to talk to the person and they don't understand what's going on with you. it's very frustrating 😑 😒 😕

      Yeah I’ve had a lot of my boyfriends do this, either they don’t know how to help or they don’t care enough to try. It took me awhile to learn that I need to not rely on someone else

      I ghosted my current partner before we got together. It's a hard feeling but knowing that they want to stay helps so I tried to remember that I was the one pushing them away instead of them running

      The best relationship I have is with my second husband. We both have anxiety and depression as well as being Neurodivergent. Not that I'm saying you can't make it work with someone else. However, I've NEVER felt more seen or heard. It's easy to help each other out when we aren't okay. People who have never dealt with mental illness or even physical illness can't truly get it. It's unfathomable to them.

      I can relate to this... sometimes at work my depression hits. And my mind races and it turns into uncontrollable crying for no reason. I calm down.. I cry again.. I calm down.. cycle repeats. This doesn't happen often but when it does play out this way, I feel crazy

      I know what you mean I’ve been with someone for over a year and I feel like he doesn’t understand me like it’s a big joke to him I’m autistic as well as suffer from BPD and bipolar and I feel like he thinks I’m making this all up like it’s all in my head because he doesn’t see it but the thing about autism we mask a lot of times when he calls me I’m in bed it’s because my depression gets so bad I just can’t deal with it and I get suicidal at times and I just can’t get out of bed he just thinks I’m lazy being a princess and I just need to lay in bed and that’s it really upsets me and my own dad is the same way like there’s nothing wrong with me I’m just being lazy makes me really upset that people just assume there’s nothing wrong with you like you’re crazy it’s all in your head a lot of people don’t take mental illness seriously it’s really sad
