Social anxiety isn’t cool.
OCD isn’t cool.
Bipolar disorder isn’t cool.
Depression isn’t cool.
Cutting isn’t cool.
Phobias aren’t cool.
Trauma isn’t cool.
Sleep disorders aren’t cool.
Eating disorders aren’t cool.
They’re real things, they’re scary, and pretending you have them is just fucking obnoxious and an insult.
See, and I know this isn’t the point of posts like this, but whenever I see the “if you’re pretending you suck,” I always get paranoid that maybe I AM just pretending. Maybe I really do suck because it’s just in my head and I’m only wanting attention. And then it just keeps going…
I always get insecurities like that too and wonder if I’m only being an attention whore because my mind’s making all this crap up, but I think the post is mostly referring to the people who pretend to have these disorders/mental problems because they think it’s “cool”. Pretending to have ANY sort of illness/disability just because you think it’s “cool” or “weird” is deeply insulting. At least, that’s how I see these posts.
Wait what, sleeping disorders are part of the “things people pretend to have” list now? I literally can’t imagine why anyone would pretend to have one. Was there a show about a detective that solves crimes with insomnia that I missed? I am very confused.
Also it feels weird to see that listed along with everything else as “scary” - Sleep apnea is scary, as are a few other sleep disorders. But the entire category isn’t scary. I’ve never been frightened of my circadian rhythm disorder. Fucking annoyed yes. Depressed a couple times. But it’s mostly just THERE and when I can work around it it’s basically a non-issue.
