I'm still alive! · 3:10am Jan 11th, 2018

I've been in a bit of a funk lately. Depression at it's peak, and I'm trying to get my medications straightened out so I can feel human again. I wanted to ask all of you if you've ever been depressed. Not only that, but (if you don't mind) what caused said depression? Do you suffer from it constantly, or just off and on?

So weird! · 3:01pm Jan 10th, 2018

I was telling my therapist about my writing (in very vague terms) and how I really enjoy 'rage against the heavens' as a trope (see also bellikos rising against their creators in that EQ expansion) and they started connecting it to my parental issues.

And it made sense and yet I had never made that connection. It's so weird to observe my own habits and thought processes like that.

If anypony's wondering why I spent so long offline · 6:43pm Jan 3rd, 2020

It's because I had mental health issues that needed sorting out. Plus, there's all these fanfics I've been reading that I felt needed to have their own TvTropes pages it's just ugh! And real life! How can I forget real life?! Do you know how hard it is to get up out of bed some mornings? Sucks having OCD and bipolar, you know.

Phwoo, okay, needed to get that off my chest. Now, hopefully, I should be in working condition in no time.

Opening up about my mental health · 3:17am Oct 12th, 2019

I've been struggling with depression since 2014, after graduating from college in 2013. My course deals with a lot of politics and international relations and I honestly did not see myself working for the government.

Let's talk about being suicidal · 4:52pm Mar 3rd, 2020

I wanted to talk about a realization I’ve had about depression, and specifically the suicidal side of depression. I want to start a discussion on this because it’s hard to talk about being suicidal, and that’s a problem. The main thing I’ve come to realize is that we only use one word, “suicidal”, but it means many more than one thing.

I little more than average, I guess! · 1:14am Apr 7th, 2020

Hello everypony! I've really been enjoying how positive this community is, and I guess I wanted to let you all know a bit more about myself. This will be the first time I (or any of us) have talked about this online, but call me emboldened by anonymity. Here goes:

Autism Allies · 4:57pm June 1st

Inspiration hit today as I was reading the next story I am reviewing and preparing for an upcoming meeting with AANE. Decided to create a Discord, and once I got that all sorted out I thought... Why not an accompanying Reddit to go with it? So I've created both:

Autism Allies - Reddit

More accurate Mind Scanners diagnoses · 7:48pm July 12th

Any of you heard of this indie game called Mind Scanners? Markiplier made a Let's Play of it:

Anyway, it is a psychiatrist simulator (for lack of better words) that takes places in this dystopian future, where you scan your patients' minds, declare them sane or insane, and use all sorts of gizmos to cure your patients of their insanity should you declare them insane.

Drama *sighs* · 7:16pm Feb 20th, 2018

Hi everyone.

Last year, you may remember someone commenting on my story 'Apeejack' harassing me, demanding that I take it down because it was "against [their] privacies" and because it was a disgusting story that had no right to be on here? And then she started arguing with a moderator trying to get them to delete it because it had gotten a load of downvotes and again was "against her privacies".

WARNING! The following contains a rundown of events during the struggle to get a single chapter of A Deer Named John written between May and October of 2020. It is only a bullet list of events but does refer to moments of severe mental health. It does NOT go into detail of these mental health events.

It is also only an explanation for the delays, not an excuse for them. It also does not give specific dates though some could be found through cross-reference with other blog entries.

It's super important to me that people like my pony stories. :twilightsmile: But sometimes I just want to hammer out a quick thing so people give me egobo. :facehoof: It's better to spend a long time on a story and have it be good. Right? Right?

Mental Hygiene In Times Of Nastiness · 7:44pm Jun 5th, 2020

In view of the recent blog posts that have filled most of your timelines, I think some measures of mental hygiene are warranted. In times of conflicts, low wages, rampant housing insecurity, riots, a global pandemic, and the all-around destitution of the public sphere, it is important to be aware of how discourse is used, meddled with, and even weaponized.

It still needs to be said that black lives matter. It does. There is no question about it. It is not negotiable.

Next Chapter · 11:10pm Nov 3rd, 2017

Hi guys,

Just wanted to give a quick explanation as to why it's taking a while for me to upload the next chapter.

Truth is, I haven't actually started writing it yet. I kinda lost inspiration for a little bit, and when I got it back, I decided that I really needed to plan the next chapter in a lot of detail as it's quite an important part of the story and something that I want to get right. It has to perfect because I want it to inform people as well as possibly help others who need it.

Next Chapter... Update · 12:29am Nov 18th, 2017

Hi everyone.

I know I said a couple weeks ago that I was going to start writing the next chapter, but I haven't been able to yet. I started a new job three weeks ago and it's been giving me so much anxiety that I haven't been able to concentrate much on anything else. Not to mention that I have been given a lot of overtime, so I haven't had as much free time to be able to write - on my days off I just want to sleep!
