I'm not perfect.
I'm not pretty or anything.
The sun stopped shining for me is all. The whole story is: I am sad. I am sad all the time and the sadness is so heavy that I can’t get away from it. Not ever.
"Some people turn sad awfully young. No special reason, it seems, but they seem almost to be born that way. They bruise easier, tire faster, cry quicker, remember longer and, as I say, get sadder younger than anyone else in the world. I know, for I’m one of them."
~Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
Dullhypotheses’ Guide To Rehab (Part Two)
At around March, I was admitted into a rehabilitation center because of my depression. However, I am feeling much better now, and have thought of sharing my experience so that — hopefully — others may be able to use it in their writing, in the background of their characters, or for their personal use. This is a part two to my guide to rehab, and you can check out part one here. I highly recommend reading that first before turning to this one.
The same disclaimer follows: Not all rehabs works the same way. Different rehabilitation centers have different styles — some more lax, and others more strict. The type of rehab I was in is not the only type of rehab there is, but it is one type.
I hope I am able to be of some help! If there are any questions about life in rehab that you think I might help in, don’t be afraid to send me an ask!
Under the cut, you will find the following sections:
i. Length of Duration in Rehab
ii. After Care
iii. Supplication of Food, Toiletries, Clothing, etc.
v. Group Therapy Guidelines
vi. OJT (On the Job Training) Students
vii. Visitation and Going Out: Day Pass, Out on Pass, Escorts and Parents
viii. Family Dialogue
ix. Checking Out
x. Life After Rehab

my roommate felt it necessary to talk to me in order to convince herself that she did not have to go to work today. Now I am awake and she is sleeping because she can go back to sleep once she’s awake. I cannot. Thanks. It’s not like I really did actually want to sleep in on my second day off.
still trying to figure out what designs I like best but here’s more sketches
So I won’t be drinking tonight. My roommate made me drive.
HEY TUMBLR, LET’S PLAY A GAME
To play this game, go to MapCrunch, select “hide location”, make sure you have all countries unselected, and click go. What this will do is drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if you woke up on the side of a road in an unfamiliar country. The goal of the game is to find your way to an airport so you can return home.
Bonus Hard Mode: No using outside sources, and that includes using google maps to figure out your location from signs or landmarks
…I had plans today but now.
THE AIRPORT GAME IS BACK.
FUCK THIS GAME
LAST TIME I PLAYED IT DUMPED ME IN THE MOUNTAINS OF NORWAY
I PLAYED FOR LIKE 8 HOURS BEFORE BREAKING DOWN CRYING
OMG NO STOP THIS GAME IS MY LIFE!!!
WHY IS THIS BACK
I HAVEN’T USED THIS GIF SINCE FEBRUARY
Always reblog Mapcrunch when someone tries to bring it back
…it dropped me in my hometown.
I love this game.
