Make it Stop

Thoughts on suicide/trans identity/dysphoria/gender passing/race passing/abuse/the ancestors/disability/trauma/crying/I want to come up with something interesting to write about suicide but I feel sick so I'm just going to paste another DFW quote k?
"A level of psychic pain wholly incompatible with human life as we know it
a double bind in which any/all of the alternatives we associate with human agency — sitting or standing, doing or resting, speaking or keeping silent, living or dying — are not just unpleasant but literally horrible
a nausea of the cells and soul"
David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest

Book cover found here, True Detective graphics from here, A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness, artwork by Kendra Yee, another book cover from here, Leland Palmer art here, unknown, Lauris Paulus
