What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that

Mental illness is like fighting a war where the enemy’s strategy is to convince you that the war isn’t actually happening.

Rosehill Cemetery - Frances Pearce

Originally buried in the Chicago City Cemetery in what is now Lincoln Park, Frances Pearce died only a few months before her baby daughter. The distraught husband had a statue made of both of them and placed over their tomb in a plexiglass box. It’s said that on the anniversary of their deaths the statue case fills up with a white mist.


William Shakespeare’s: Star Wars - Verily, A New Hope

Now watch, amaz’d, as swiftly through the door
The army of the Empire flyeth in.
And as the troopers through the passage pour,
They murder sev’ral dozen rebel men.

When they’re babies, people will come up and say to you ‘Are they a boy or a girl?’ when the kid’s in the pram and you can’t tell. And immediately when you tell them which gender it is they will behave differently according to what you tell them. It got to the point where we didn’t want people to know what gender the baby was. Just treat it as you’d treat someone you wanted to be nice to! Why is it so important to you to know? And then you hear people saying ‘Oh, look at him, he’s a little flirt isn’t he’, or ‘Oooh, she’s gonna wrap you around her little finger’ and all this. What are you on about? She’s two months old, she’s just shat herself.
