Thank You, Supernatural
Last year ( as of late June, I think ) I had retreated into myself. My depression was in another low cycle. I shut down. I cut myself off from my online friends ( Shipper, I am eternally grateful for your understanding T_T ), I socialized with my I.R.L. friends only when invited ( which was rare ), I stopped drawing, I just… stopped.
I started interacting online last November ( I stopped being a lurker ).
I started blogging in December.
I started drawing in March.
I willingly participated in a group challenge in June, meaning that I initiated social interactions AND took on a project with a deadline.
I felt like I was going to relapse this summer but I actually managed to hang on.
I actually gathered enough courage to open a store for my art.
Yes, the fandom can be triggery for me ( abuse between fans was one of the contributing factors to why I almost relapsed this summer, but not the main one ) but it’s gotten me energized, enthusiastic, creative, productive and more!
So, thank you “Supernatural!”
