Description:

This swap is the anxiety and depression alternative to @benevolentghost Bipolar/BPD/Psychosis swap. You may join both if you have been diagnosed with any disorder from either category.


You will write one partner a letter about yourself and your struggles with your illness, at least one 8.5"x11" page front and back. You can vent, talk about treatment, complain about meds, express your biggest fears, share your daily life... whatever is most useful for you.

  • Use common sense if something could be triggering. Don't glorify any type of self-harm. Don't go into explicit detail about trauma.

  • Make sure you mention your actual diagnosis/most prevalent symptoms somewhere just to give your partner context.

  • Also include one profile-based flat surprise to make your partner smile. Homemade is fine unless your partner's profile indicates otherwise.

  • You don't have to write back, but a follow-up PM just to empathize/give encouragement would probably be appreciated.

Thanks for reading!
