Something for a few friends

I don't have panic attacks (I've had a few, they were all while I was on a certain medication, and went away when I got off it) but a lot of this resonated with me all the same. I have phobias. One in particular I worried would cripple me for life, for a while, though it's miles better now than it used to be. (Oni has been helping me get over the last of it lately.) And it's very true that they don't always get better when you face them. And I have depression, which also shares the problem of people who don't understand it say you should just buck up and get over it and everything will be better.

Life isn't that easy.

But sometimes knowing other people are going through the same issues helps.
