I forgot how great it feels to be me!
i agree which is why i’ve counselled against it and the asker has responded to let me know they have taken the advice into consideration.
But for all writers, please please tread gently when discussing mental illness. There is no such thing as too gentle when it comes to topics like this and when in doubt just don’t do it at all.
A lot of you ask us for advice because you are new to writing, you’re still finding your feet and are unsure of your skills. We all know you’re going to improve, we all know some of you are going to be great writers one day but while you’re still in this beginner phase please stay away from mental illness plotlines unless you are writing from your own personal experiences with suffering from mental illness or living with someone who does.
Write what you know is very much the perfect rule for beginner writers.
on the other hand, a super-important way to improve is to research as much as you can, especially in the interest of being able to create diverse characters. we have the internet at our fingertips, and there are tons of resources on here including information to be requested from people who have experienced certain struggles firsthand!
Always treat writing a mental illness with respect, and research like mad if you don’t have it. Always.

From where he lay splayed cross-ways on the bed with his legs hanging over the side, Dingeye miserably fanned himself with a discarded piece of junk mail.
"Our eyes are gonna melt right outta our ‘eads if this keeps up," he said, adding to Thura’s whine, and Thura sighed from the floor, his back slumped up against the side of the bed next to Dingeye’s legs. The two had long torn off any of the sheets and outer layers of clothing in an attempt to make things cooler, pooling them in a messy waterfall off the end of the bed, but to no avail: with a broken AC and nearly dead fan in the hotel room, there wasn’t any solace to be found.
