I feel like Mikey doesn’t get enough credit for his struggles. While there are thousands of posts about what an inspiration Gerard is for kicking alcoholism and drug addiction, I can count on one hand the number of posts I’ve seen about Mikey, even though he’s gone through the same nightmare. I get why he hasn’t gotten much credit recently, after Sarah accidentally led us all to believe that he’s a drug addict, but even before that, this fandom hasn’t acknowledged it much. Even after that interview where he revealed for the first time his experiences with depression and addiction, I remember seeing a lot of “I’m glad Gerard stood by him” and even a few people who thought Gerard single-handedly saved his life, but not much admiration for Mikey himself.
He confirmed in a recent interview that he’s recovered from addiction:"The song speaks to me, because, as I’ve talked about before, I’m a drug addict, I’ve been a drug addict my whole life," he said. "And I’ve recovered, come back from the mountain, but that song still speaks to me. I listen to it and it hits home."
So either the rumors weren’t true, or he did relapse but he recovered. Either way, I think he deserves some credit, especially since he’s honest about it. He doesn’t pretend that he’s cured or brag about what an inspiration he is: he flat-out says “I’m a drug addict, I’ve been a drug addict my whole life.” I think that takes courage.
Besides the alcoholism and addiction, he’s struggled with severe depression and anxiety, he’s contemplated suicide, and he starved himself when he was a teenager. He’s also been bullied to hell and back by the Internet, and after MCR split I figured he’d fade into obscurity, tired of the stress. But he’s back as the frontman of a new band—an impressive feat, considering his past self-consciousness and anxiety—with new songs that he wrote/co-wrote himself. And as a friend of mine put it, he could have popped up on Twitter, dropped the news about Electric Century, and left. But instead he’s talking to fans, faving their tweets, answering their questions, posting photos on EC’s Instagram, and sometimes just saying “hi!!!” He’s not obligated to do any of that after the way the Internet’s treated him, but he’s doing it. He’s handled the whole thing way better than I would.
Anyway, let’s give the little guy some credit. I’m the first to admit that he’s not flawless, but his struggles have been just as traumatic as Gerard’s, and his accomplishments just as impressive.
I’ve also never really heard it addressed in the fan base that Mikey is bi-polar. It is so so hard to deal with inside of yourself, it’s hard to maintain relationships with loved ones and to do normal tasks that you’d assume anyone could do. It sometimes becomes near impossible to control your own mind. Give him serious credit for all the shit he’s waded through and gotten out the other side alive and happy. You fucking go Mikey Way, you beautiful son of a bitch.
Also a lot of people don’t know how much of a struggle he had in the making of the Black parade. He practically went insane and he was moved out of the hotel where the band was staying because it gave him major anxiety and nightmares and he couldn’t take it. Everyone talked about how much feeling and notes about Gerard that album had, when really a ton of it was about Mikey. He had low self esteem and bad anxiety. He was depressed and suicidal and he overcame it. And thats so noteworthy and he doesn’t get enough credit for that.
Sassy Levi line by Matthew Mercer (Levi)
actual diary entry from when i was in 5th grade oh my god
“We dressed up as the book Madeline, with six people dressed up as her and me as Ms. Clavel, their teacher. One of the Madelines, however, was the truly special one…the one with the beard, that is. Our experience was hysterical—I’d walk all the girls (and one guy) down the street in two straight lines. Guys would be walking the other way, whistling or hollering at all the pretty ladies. Then, as they got to the back of the line, they’d see my friend Brennan, then they’d see me, and I could tell that they were suddenly wondering if ALL the Madelines were men.”

There will never be a time when I don’t reblog this because it is my fave.
