You let me know if all of those common names made it on a Coke bottle.

omg

courtney stop

i think you ignored the part where i say its literally just a coke bottle

No, I got that part when you screamed it in the tags. And it’s not just a coke bottle. It’s a microaggression and those build up. Quickly.

OKAY I’m really not trying to dispute racial microaggressions at all. I know they are very real and pervasive. But, the Coke bottle name thing—a lot of the names on it are actually pretty diverse? Like my name: Alejandra. Miguel also appears. Some of the other names I could find were: Alejandro, Ricardo, Rosa, Luis, Yesenia, Syed, Noor, and Manuel.Take a look for yourself: http://www.shareacoke.com/#find

Idk, I was surprised, because I really never find my name on stuff. It is, in fact, the only time in my life I’ve found that MY name was available and Alexandra wasn’t. I also believe that this particular site is only for the US. I stumbled on one for the UK and my name was not included, so it may vary country to country.

Depression is hard to understand, because it is not a consistent state. Depression is rather like a virus, but like a virus, it has its manageable days and its acute, life-threatening flare-ups. You can be in a depression and still laugh at a friend’s joke or have a good night at dinner or manage low-level functioning. You grocery shop and stop to pet a puppy on the corner, talk to friends in a café, maybe write something you don’t hate. When this happens, you might examine your day for clues like reading tea leaves in a cup: Was it the egg for breakfast that made the difference? The three-mile run? You think, well, maybe this thing has moved on now. And you make no sudden moves for fear of attracting its abusive attention again.

But other times…

Other times, it’s as if a hole is opening inside you, wider and wider, pressing against your lungs, pushing your internal organs into unnatural places, and you cannot draw a true breath. You are breaking inside, slowly, and everything that keeps you tethered to your life, all of your normal responses, is being sucked through the hole like an airlock emptying into space. These are the times Holly Golightly called the Mean Reds.

I call it White Knuckling it.

"But the stigma of depression is that it comes with the sense that you shouldn’t have it to begin with. That it is self-indulgence or emotional incompetence rather than actual illness."
