So I just found out the two older half sisters I’ve known about my whole life but never met or spoken to both have added me on Facebook, and I had no idea it was them. Suddenly I’ve gained two siblings and it’s surreal. I have not fully grasped it yet.
Also, hello everyone. Long time no see to those of you who remember me, haha. <3
I do know, and it’s sad how depression can trick you into thinking that no one cares. I’m not speaking entirely for myself, either, because this all has opened my eyes to people who suffer from any form of mental illness and what they endure. It’s so easy to judge someone and make light of what can’t be seen, and I have not once been accused of faking or being an attention seeker from any of you. The opposite is true—I’ve never once received even the tiniest bit of hate or derision.
I don’t at all exaggerate when I say that I love you, because in many of my darkest moments I have come here in pain and been helped through by a community of online friends, peers, and strangers. You are all incredibly generous people.
