Recently I made this friend, or rather, recently I made this friend a better friend. I should clarify that he was not in any way injured, cajoled or otherwise manipulated into becoming better friends with me, but entered into this arrangement of his on volition for reasons I cannot begin to imagine.
This friend, simply put, is pretty sick. Both in sense that he is entirely awesome, and the sense that much like me his mental health can be less than stellar.
The result has been a number of impromptu late night/ early morning truth telling sessions in which we have both laid ourselves bare- figuratively- and maybe felt a little better for it.
This blog post is going up, not because I felt a random update on my social circle was in order, because I think people can underestimate the value of one really good friend. One person who’ll listen to all of it, all the incoherent babbling and say “yeah, me too”, one person who reads all of it and says “you haven’t lost your mind”. Its been a long time since I’ve had someone like that.
This blog post is going up because it’s time I start taking my own advice, and shouting (or ALL-CAPS TYPING into the void). It’s going up, like so many of the others, so that maybe someone will stumble across it, and it will help.
Yours as always
