You have NO CLUE how hard i just cried


This was AMAZING KEEP IT UP

The constant struggle for normalcy… The well-intentioned completely unhelpful suggestions… The hope that maybe tomorrow, next week, “soon” it’s going to be better… Until you don’t… Yeah… 😟

As for the ending with being lonely afterwards… Don’t know, easy to say “you could have done better there“ – yeah, kinda always true? Why bother when you don’t think there is going to be something to do that for though?

Totally relatable.  For me it was M.D.D. and Mixed Apnea episodes together each disorder compounding the effects of the other.  I could sleep for 16 hours and wake up tired.  Needed naps all the time.  Sometimes falling asleep while driving. Had trouble focusing and remembering enough at work that I lost my job as a developer.  Too tired to check my messages, answer calls, or do anything I used to do for fun. Took every pill, powder and potion I could get my hands on over the counter.  But I seemed fine.  Still on the tail end of that episode.

i cried

It's definitely going in my Top 10 Games List this year. I just... what a beautiful story. I've had those days with depression where sleep didn't help. I can't begin to imagine what the feeling of this would be. Thank you for sharing this with the world.

such an accurate game!! I've struggling with chronic illness for almost 6 months and still haven't found the answer, but maybe one day...

5/5! I loved this game! It's so realistic and I would recommend this to everyone! I suggest they take the "normal reading requirements" like MacBeth, Animal Farm, Etc. Those "Classics" and replace them with more techie games/reading like this. I know more kids would be able to identify with this and even get their heads thinking about real-world topics and themselves. Definitely worth it! In short, I feel like it would be very relatable!

she's just like me fr

Really amazing i love how this game captured both your attention and your heart in the procces

(Plus the Protagonist reminds me of Marcy Wu from Amphibia so thats a  Plus point from Me)

Lots of Love to this Creator from me <3

I have lupus and it took years to get my diagnosis. This was such an accurate representation of what it's like to battle some mystery illness you can feel but no one else can see. Thank you KJAM

In short no, It's not depression because you can see she really wanted to go to school and be with her friends.  She might have developed depression because of her untreated narcolepsy, but I don't see much pointing in that direction.

(+2)

Wow,this is beautiful..yet..hits close to home..

It's hard to believe that people go through this,even though I know what it's like personally..

Beautiful, I'm glad she has a diagnosis and can be and do better, I LOVED THE LAST PHOTO, so sweet, and cute both strong girls

(+4)(-2)

Very cute and sad game. I'm glad I ended up getting a good ending for it.


(spoilers)

I was thinking of depression before the reveal at the end because it also has similar tiredness and nonexisting motivation to do anything than stay in bed. Like I said I'm glad to get a happy ending where Rae had still good relationships with her mother and her friend. ♥

Same...🖤

same, and when she realized the only person who actually believed in her story the whole journey was her own mother, broke my heart at the same time reminding us mothers always know when sosmethings wrong with their own children. </3

It really was though 💕
