Say what you like about Moffat, the guy can do long-reaching story arcs…but it takes talent when they start before he even got to work on the show…
DEAR GOD HE SAID HE LOVED SOMEONE. OUT LOUD.
Here you go, Eight fandom. I’m sure we’ll get a lot of use out of it. (Original gif by Harbek!)
See this post?
It’s really not okay. People should really stop reblogging this shit!
It could be really fucking hurtful to someone who is unsure if they have one of these problems or not.
It’s like saying “Your problem isn’t real because it only happens to you sometimes, dont fucking whine about it”
really, just… what the fuck. That’s so rude.
“Don’t tell me you understand depression because you get sad sometimes”
No, don’t ever fucking say that to someone. Being sad is not fun, don’t tell them that it’s not a big deal. Being sad IS a big deal.
“Don’t tell me you have anxiety because you get nervous before an exam”
Getting nervous before anything is having anxiety. You could say “i got anxiety before an exam” See? Yes you do get anxiety. everyone gets anxiety sometimes. It’s not fun, and don’t let anyone tell you your anxiety problems aren’t real.
I could go on, but i’m trying to keep this short. So i think you guys get the point.
Stop reblogging posts like that, Okay? Okay.
Right, but getting nervous before an exam is NOT the same as an anxiety disorder. The one where you’re on medication, have to go to the ER because your heart won’t stop racing, and/or have a life-altering condition. That is sure the hell NOT the same as being stressed out before a test, unless your body actually shuts down before said test. THAT is an anxiety disorder.
While it’s true that people’s feelings should not be dismissed and deserve understanding for what they’re going through, DO NOT MAKE LIGHT OF MENTAL ILLNESS. IT IS A WHOLE DIFFERENT THING. IT REALLY IS.
Steven Moffat just ruined my favorite poster…
