I became a fan of supernatural roughly August last year. Looking back I can’t believe how much a fandom has changed my life.
The Always Keep Fighting campaign has been amazing. I bought a jumper from the 1st year anniversary one. It’s become my favourite jumper. I find the message important because it reminds me to keep fighting my anxiety and to not let it win which sometimes I feel I do. As well as that the Love yourself first message that helps me remember that I’m important and just as important as anyone else and that it’s ok to put myself first if I can’t go somewhere or if someone needs me to do something I’m not ready to do.
The You Are Not Alone campaign has also been helpful to me. It reminds me that there are people I can talk to and I should talk to them. It’s ok to ask for help because I’m not alone and there are people who want to help.
Talking about people who I can talk to and are here to help. The fans of Supernatural are amazing. The nicest fandom I’ve ever been in. They are so supportive of each other and help each other. They are just amazing people. They welcomed me into the fandom with arms open and I hope that the people I’ve introduced to the fandom also find it helpful for them and find support they need.
I owe so much to this Fandom. I found this fandom and got into supernatural not that long after I was diagnosed with anxiety. I found binge watching episodes of Supernatural helped escape my mind for a while. I couldn’t be more thankful for finding this fandom. Even just live videos from Misha and Jared will lift my spirits. If I don’t want to go out or talk to anyone I can watch those videos and see that people care. Or I can talk to the amazing fans of Supernatural and I don’t feel so bad. My friends don’t quite understand my anxiety so it’s really nice to have people who do in my life.
Thank you to the Supernatural Fandom, I hope I can put in what you’ve given me.
