can someone please enlighten me as to why people reblog my posts just to bash competitive swimming

like really i don’t give a fuck if you don’t like swimming, go find a blog about your special little sport that’s apparently better.

Anonymous asked: Do you swim competitively?

Not anymore.

when people reblog every single meme but don’t follow me afterwards

tropicalfruitbunhead asked: People can be stupid. That is all. Stay strong <3 We all love you :)

Thank you so much, all of you, for the support.

hailtothesea asked: I know some people who are depressed, and it's bad. People can get so insensitive sometimes. Chin up, and just ignore it. Haters be haters.

Thank you so much for the support. I haven’t ever encountered insensitivity to this extent, and I really needed to address it. Just because i’m only thirteen doesn’t mean I can’t be depressed. It affects everyone. From now on, all anon hate messages will be deleted immediately. Again, thank you so much for the support.

Anonymous asked: Are you honestly comparing depression to cancer? What the fuck is wrong with you? Go get some friends and laugh. Geesh. Cancer patients don't ask for pity.

I seriously do not know what is wrong with you, this is literally the most insensitive post I have ever recieved.

Depression is a chemical imbalance in the brain, not something you just get over.

Yes, I have friends, yes I laugh with them, yes, sometimes I am happy. This doesn’t mean that i don’t have depression. I’m not asking for pity.

ps i really fucking hate you, whoever you are.

Anonymous asked: this isn't meant as an attack on you, or anything. so please don't misread it. i just want you to know that anonymous people may be attacking you because they may not actually believe you have depression. nowadays, it seems like so many people claim to have depression & anxiety, even though they may not actually. this is especially common in young teens, such as you at 13. now, i am not saying you don't have it, but just that the hate may come from people who don't believe you. (continued....)

No, I get what you’re saying, and I’ve seen this happen a lot. However, I’ve been diagnosed with depression by my pediatric neurologist, and I was diagnosed with anxiety and neurotic behaviors when I was very, very little, about six or seven. I’ve been picking at my skin (the condition dermatillomania) for as long as I can remember; my mom said it started when I was about four. I’ve taken three medicines so far to control my depression, none of whom have worked, and I start therapy sometime in early September.

you guys

stop telling me to get over it

if i could do you think i would be sad
