Aries: March 21st – April 19th

They pack their schedule to keep busy. They work longer hours. They stop sleeping. The exercise more than they should. They distract themselves as best as they can.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

They reach out to friends they haven’t talked to in a while. They hint at the fact that they’ve been super stressed and are having a hard time. They ask you how you are because they are hoping that you’ll shoot the question back at them. They don’t want to come right out with their problems, so they’re hoping you’ll pry the information out of them.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

They give you vague answers when you ask them about their life. They ‘joke’ about how they want to die and make it seem like no big deal. They don’t want to talk about their own problems — they want to forget about them — so they try to turn the conversation away from themselves.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

They fake smiles. They force laughs. They claim that they are ‘fine.’ They pretend that they are okay, because they don’t want anyone else to worry about them.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

They get angry over seemingly small things, like running out of cereal. They get upset over seemingly small things, like sad commercials. Their emotions seemingly come out at random because no one knows the real source of the problem, except for them.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

They are always tired. They keep making excuses about why they can’t hang out. They don’t have a desire to see their friends or do any of the things they used to love. They just want to rest.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

They ask you if you need anything and go out of their way to help you. They treat you like royalty and let you treat them like crap. They try to fix everyone else’s problems, because it’s easier than focusing on their own.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

They drink. They curse. They punch walls. They go on long rants to their friends. They let their emotions loose instead of bottling everything up inside.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

They always seem distracted. They start eating more. They start smiling less. They spend more time on the internet than interacting with other people face-to-face.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

They stop answering their calls and emails. They stay inside the house for days at a time. They oversleep on accident. They barely move, unless they have to get up to use the bathroom or go to work.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

They listen to loud music. They make self-deprecating jokes. They start writing (or drawing or watching) dark, gruesome things. They stop being so optimistic and turn into a full-blown pessimists.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

They are quieter than usual in group conversations. They go MIA from social media. They take a long time to answer texts or ignore their phone completely. TC mark

Never give up hope.

How do you come back from your lowest point? How do you drag yourself out of that black hole of nothingness that has consumed your life? For me, being diagnosed with Hidradenitis Suppurativa wasn’t easy. I now believe that if I can manage this skin condition, I can do anything.
