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.
Happy birthday to my little deer, LuHan. The first time I saw you, I knew there was something to be treasured about you. Your courage in the most daunting of tasks is admirable. Sure, we joke about “Princess Lulu” but, we know just how much of a man you’ve become. A man takes on burdens so that no one else has to. He puts everyone else before himself and makes sure that everyone has what they need. You always do just that. Don’t be afraid to cry, to feel sad, or even angry. May you always have a smile on your face and continue to captivate all of the world!
