You don’t understand how important this moment was to me. Kieren is eighteen years old, he suffers from severe anxiety and depression, he’s being accused of something he didn’t do, and, as a result, he lashes out. This reaction is completely understandable. And yet, because he is a PDS sufferer, they take the innate humanness of the outburst and twist it to make him seem inhuman. This is what happens when you are part of an oppressed group. They push you, and push you, and you keep your head down, and nothing changes - and when eventually you snap, act out in anger and frustration because you can’t take it any more, they take that reaction and turn it around to justify their oppression. This is the moment when Kieren realises he cannot win. Whatever he does, he will always be a monster.
Why don't you read much anymore? You used to devour books when you were younger.
Me: *closes laptop after reading 6th fanfic that day*
Me: Oh, you know... school, work.

-Well, as long as it’s funny.
One of the first things they ask you in the ER is to rate your pain on a scale from 1 to 10. I’ve been asked this question hundreds of times and I remember once, when I couldn’t catch my breath and I felt like my chest was on fire, the nurse asked me to rate the pain. Though I couldn’t speak, I held up 9 fingers. Later, when I started feeling better, the nurse came in and she called me a fighter. “You know how I know?” she said, “You called a 10 a 9.” But that wasn’t the truth.
I didn’t call it a 9 because I was brave. The reason I called it a 9 was because I was saving my 10…and this was it.
THIS FUCKED ME UP
Our fate lives within us, you only have to be brave enough to see it.
