I should feel happy but I’m not

I just went to Comic Con with my sister and got to meet William Shatner today. Growing up, Star Trek was one of my favorite shows and to meet a legendary actor like him; is an incredible opportunity.

But after I went home, it just kind of dawned on me how numb I felt. It reminds me how much joy I’ve lost in life battling depression and mental illness.

I feel like I can’t talk to anyone because I don’t want to bother them. It’s not fair to them for me to dump my turmoil onto other people.

One really big thing is, though, is that you went there with your sister. This is a pretty big thing to do, I know, when battling depression and anxiety.

I know the feeling of not wanting to burden anyone too, with your turmoil. My heart goes out to you, and I hope you find a way.

It's not dumping, its helping you to work out what you're feeling and going through

@ineedadrink No. I stopped going to therapy because it was too expensive and wasn’t helping me
