A post about a post

So I wrote a post about what caused me to head back to hospital so soon. And then I didn’t post it because … I was/am scared of being that honest. And because it’s shitty. And because ‘what if someone I know accidentally finds this blog’ (should I change it’s name and delete the picture? like what do you think?). And because I’m not really sure if it has happened. And because I thought maybe it was too much. And because I didn’t want anyone to think I posted it because I wanted sympathy … though, really, maybe I do want sympathy? And because I didn’t want anyone to see me, but isn’t that what we all want, ever: to be seen? And because it’s idiotic. And because I’m weak. And because it’s taboo. And because it’s fresh.

And because it’s real, because it’s actually, truly, my life.

  1. One of the benefits of blogging, I think, is the amount you can choose to remain anonymous. You can say as much or as little as you’d like.

    I don’t know if I would necessarily feel sympathetic in a way that would pity you, but I would (and do) certainly feel compassion towards you and your situation.

    I hope you’re doing okay. Don’t feel like you have to write if you feel uncomfortable.

    • Yeah. I see that too, and that’s why I was thinking of changing the name of the blog and change the picture to something generic. But since I totally have Aspergers, I feel like a dick when I change it. I kinda like it this way. Not because this way is better, but because this is the way it’s been. I’m impossible!

      “I don’t know if I would necessarily feel sympathetic in a way that would pity you” … is this good or bad?

      You’re nice. Really.

      • With regards to sympathy, I just meant that I wouldn’t look down on you or something. I’m not sure really how to explain what I’m trying to say, but I wouldn’t feel that type of sympathy that have a way of making the “sympathizee” feel like, small and little. Basically, it’s a good thing. Your situation and what you’re going through absolutely sucks and I don’t think any less of you, if that makes sense.
        Maybe it’s just my own fuckedupness, haha.

  2. I am constantly nervous that my soon to be EX will find my blog and realize I have truly moved on and now have a new love in my life. If she finds out, GOOD. If I can control when that information needs to be made public, I’d be happier. I could care less what my STBX thinks. I do want to protect my children though and introduce this new love the CORRECT way. So, I understand the hesitancy….

    • Yeah, I understand how you would be nervous about that.

      I’m hestitant in a more … I don’t know. Like, mental illness and shit is taboo, and if I die, I don’t think my family would like everyone (if one found it I assume more would) to know everything about me. It’s strange in a way. You want strangers to connect with you through or by the shitty things you write about, but the people you know already, you can’t stand to think of them knowing … Strange.
      Why am I so afraid of the truth. Gah!
