Fair warning: my twitter and tumblrs are all about depression.twitter.com/mechalynx

This is my Instagram, which is currently pretty random. I sometimes post crappy photos and sketches:www.instagram.com/mechalynx/
I wasn't always this miserable but life's taken a down turn lately.
This is all very mushy but it's not there because I lack self-respect, dignity or a sense of privacy for what happens inside me. I sometimes feel the need to put these thoughts somewhere and it helps me cope. Drawing helps too, when I get around to it.
There are days (and especially nights) that can be very difficult because of depression and the anxiety that often follows it. Putting something up on a profile on the internet helps ground things a bit, gives me something to hold myself from and push ahead. It helps me escape my head.
It's not because I expect anyone to care about it in the sea of profiles much like this, most of which are more interesting, it's just the act of it that helps. Sometimes when people put up stuff like this it feels very creepy and off-putting. I don't want to make people feel like that about me but I sometimes need to say how I feel even if nobody's paying attention.
I could keep it to myself but it's not the same - it still feels hazy, undefined and muted, so I decided I had to put something somewhere public.
