Advice for friends and family


The support that I find is the most helpful is when friends actually get it and they say things like “I don’t know how you do it,” or “It must be really hard. You deserve a medal.” Like, just stuff like that. Or when they do something really nice for me, like if they take me out for dinner or something like that. That’s always nice. Or if they basically— I think that the most important thing is for people to really understand what you’re going through and validate what you’re going through, and listen to you when you’re bitching and you’re really having a hard time. That’s the kind of support that I find the most helpful. And also, another thing that I find really helpful is having friends who don’t mind you calling at almost any time. Like, most people, you can’t call them pretty much between 11 and 8 in the morning.
