  1. It's difficult for me to reply because I relate so much. I don't feel like digging into my own story at the moment, so, for now I will just say that I am so sorry that you are struggling with this. No matter how old we get, we never stop wanting our parents to be our parents- and when we have to take care of them (especially when it is much sooner than we ever imagined ) it feels so isolating. Like all your energy has to go towards worrying about and protecting this person (often from themselves). I'm glad you can come here and talk about this. Hugs.
  2. This is some pretty convincing evidence to me that Lyanna is Jon's mother. During my first read of AGOT, the only thing I was 100% convinced of is that Ned is NOT Jon's father. When you pair that idea with how often Ned thinks about Lyanna, and his comment comparing Rheagar to Robert when it comes to brothels, and I feel sure that this is what George had planned - for the first 3 books at least. On later reads, I started to pick up on the thematic repetition and symbolism that further backs up this theory. Now I think there are many other possibilities to his parentage (and I agree that the mystery surrounding Dany and (F)Aegon's births are meant to further derail us from being certain ) but still, none has more evidence to me that R+L=J. As to OP's point about how much can we trust prophecy, I know RadioWesteros made a point recently that it sort of depends on where the prophecy is coming from. A prophecy by the GoHH is probably fairly reliable. I imagine the more straight forward the prophecy, the less we can rely on its accuracy - but maybe that is an over simplification. In the case of TPTWP and such, we are hearing different snippets from so many directions, I believe it will come true in an unexpected way.
  3. I was going to echo this. Even when people (and often loved ones) are trying to help, they say or do things that are dismissive of our mental illness or generalized struggle. This is because to be truly empathetic, you have to sit with those same uncomfortable feelings. People are either not equipped for this, or do not wish to turn towards those dark corners. Its hurtful and creates loneliness. I totally get this. Sometimes I'm accepting that this will always be a struggle. I keep hoping that one day I will just look back on this is a "dark time". Glad to hear that you are making progress and on a medication that works for you! I had such a bad time with my first medication that I'm too scared to try something else. Its nice to hear that there really are cases of the right fit ! It sounds like you are going through a lot right now, and its totally understandable that you are feeling overwhelmed on top of everything else! And taking care of parents is never easy, no matter how old we get. I'll never stop wishing I could be the kid for once - even in my mid twenties. I can't say much to help, except that I read your post and I am thinking about you!
