Kat, 21, English student, unenthusiastic sales assistant, knitter, unzealous vegetarian, feminist, queer, photographer. Trying to keep up with my degree and work whilst struggling with depression, generalised anxiety disorder, and fibromyalgia, notsorry if it gets boring. Originally from Londonish, living in SW Cornwall.
last day at work today. feeling simultaneously relieved and worried, and a bit sad too. but on the other hand I’ve been almost deliriously tired this week, and the pain in my back and legs has been keeping me up at night, soooo
things that are driving me nuts about being home at the moment:
my mum telling people I’ve quit my job because ‘I have too much studying to do’ as though the fact that I’ve managed to pass 2nd year with a 1st and then work full time for 2 months with a chronic illness is something to be embarrassed or ashamed about
my dad complaining about his RSI/back ache every time I mention I’m in a lot of pain, as though it’s a competition
trying to talk about why I get annoyed with mainstream LGBT stuff and then realising my parents still think I’m a straight girl
the water pressure is mediocre at best
being really depressed and nobody wants to support me because my problems aren’t the most important problems
