Very distressing to discover that xanax is not in an exclusive relationship with me. Not cool, xanax, we could have talked about this like adults. You know my triggers!

so he is definitely just trolling everyone at this point, right? like, this can't be real?
I can't shake the feeling that both the song and the video are intentionally awful
@Alli525 Absolutely, but a valuable part of the healing process (in my experience) is having people tell you you're being an asshole, and (re-)learning to regulate your behaviour around other human beings.
Auuughhhh I have read all of the comments and feel gross
WOW, feelings about the piece and the writer totally aside, @S. Elizabeth represents everything that is wrong with the internet and, increasingly, the Hairpin. Seriously girl. Check yourself.
@AEB: A few different issues going on with the detractors. Some want to discredit everything you say simply because you come from a middle class family while they didn't. Well that's not a valid criticism. They do not have a patent on suffering, on PTSD, on literary talent, or anything else. You have a right to speak as much as anybody. It doesn't seem to me you are begging for symapathy. Others seem miffed because their own work was rejected by Hairpin... that's just petty beyond belief: green-eyed monster. I wouldn't dignify these people with a response.
@mirah God, thank you for this. I was disheartened by the amount of judgment and anger in the comments. I'm a writer who graduated in '09 and hasn't had half of the opportunities the author had, but after reading this I can see that as a gift in many ways.
No problem. I am also a writer, albeit in a different capacity than you, and I think the hallmark of a good writer is the ability to see the possible validity of experiences other than your own.
@mirah Thanks, and very much.
