Amity is dreaming commented on escapingreality's blog post Endogenous Depression and MDD [warning: rant ahead!]

"@escapingreality Well that's interesting, I tend to do the opposite and emphasize them instead. The fact that you like the phrase "chasing ghosts" makes me think that you might be doing just that, running endlessly after idealized…"

"@Source My memories aren't corrupted. As in, I don't have false memories. I tend to suppress painful memories, which is why I feel like I have gaps. If you asked me about the years 2012 - 2014, I wouldn't be able to tell you much.…"
