My name's Marisa. I attend the art institute in Chicago. I'm in love with my best friend. I have alopecia, a skin disease that makes my hair fall out.

  • "Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love"

    Depression does not always mean
    Beautiful girls shattering at the wrists
    A glorified, heroic battle for your sanity
    Or mothers that never got the chance to say good-bye

    Sometimes depression means
    Not getting out of bed for three days
    Because your feet refuse to believe
    That they will not shatter upon impact with the floor

    Sometimes depression means
    That summoning the willpower
    To go downstairs and do the laundry
    Is the most impressive thing you accomplish that week

    Sometimes depression means
    Lying on the floor staring at the ceiling for hours
    Because you cannot convince your body
    That it is capable of movement

    Sometimes depression means
    Not being able to write for weeks
    Because the only words you have to offer the world
    Are trapped and drowning and I swear to God I’m trying

    Sometimes depression means
    That every single bone in your body aches
    But you have to keep going through the motions
    Because you are not allowed to call in to work depressed

    Sometimes depression means
    Ignoring every phone call for an entire month
    Because yes, they have the right number
    But you’re not the person they’re looking for, not anymore
