Yess! I've had social anxiety since kindergarden, and every year the teachers make me look like a fucking retard because I have a mental disorder. Then, the blades started to come out in 5th grade, and now i'm in treatment for the self-harming. So a big fucking thank you to the teachers who just didn't care, and never would.
No one really understands depression until you've been through it yourself. You just say "I'm tired" so people won't judge you, make fun of you, or think you're trying to get "attention", etc. Do you think I want to live like that? Who would?
