Yuri!!! On Ice

You may not expect this, but I’m kind of a closet anime fan. I have been since I was little and Sailor Moon was on TV. Lately, I’ve gotten back into the genre, and one that I’ve fallen in love with is Yuri!!! On Ice.

Pre-Christmas

We’re in the point of the year that’s spent wrapping presents for people we care about and all I can think about is how I won’t see my family on Christmas this year. I was in NY last week to do the holidays and it felt nice, but as we get closer to the actual holiday, I feel cruddy. It’s not about the presents, it’s about feeling cared about. And my family makes me feel that way.

New York

I visited my family in New York this week, and it was quite wonderful, but also frustrating. My depression has been worsening and it makes finding a place that feels like home seem impossible; I feel like since I’ve moved out, me being back is a hassle to my family, especially since my grandmother is staying there, and tat makes for a pretty full house. But at the same time, I don’t feel very at home in Maryland either. I feel like everyone that has done anything there to help out is doing so because they are friends with Rob, and want him to be happy, not because of me.

Being Back

I know that DIY or a comic should be here, but I feel like it’s more important for me tow just free write a bit of what has been going on in my mind through the entirety of my break. I’ve been off twitter and instagram, for the most part, because while I have been suffering from more frequent depressive episodes, the past couple of weeks have been something worse than I’ve dealt with in a very long time.

Break

Fangirls, I need to take a break. Things are difficult and frustrating and my anxiety is disgustingly high. I have a lot of trouble managing stress and depression, and everything is so overwhelming right now. After tomorrow (Saturday July 16th), I will be taking a week-long break to concentrate on preparing things for moving and life. I’m trying to juggle too much right now, and though a week definitely isn’t enough, it’s as much of a break I can really take without falling too far behind in everything. I feel incredibly guilty about taking just the week, but I need to make myself safe and as comfortable as possible. I’m hoping things will be easier for me. I appreciate you’re understanding, and hope that you’ll continue to support Fangirls Are We. I will be back on July 24th.
