Super incredibly maddening thing about mental illness:

Fighting your ass off to live a normal life and function as well as you can, and instead of getting credit and having people be proud of you for all the efforts you’re making, having people use your apparently normal behavior as a reason to invalidate you and think you weren’t that sick to begin with.

It takes a lot of badassery to act this normal, but the effort is all invisible 



The Backwater Gospel: The Animation Workshop (2011) dir: Bo Mathorne

i remember watching this in college around two years ago (has it really been two years?!) and it has never left me. the visual style is dark and gritty, and the story even more so. character design is my favourite thing and i really love how these characters look, move and interact with each other. The Undertaker is spectacular.

[i wish i was better at writing about things i like - i’m aware this is something i need to work on.]
