Menhera (メンヘラ) is a japanese slang term derived from "Mental Healther". It became the spark of a sickly cute aesthetic which takes the abiguous usage of the word "sick", like as an insult for something nonconformist, literally as reflection of the social stigma which still hides behind the surface of "kawaii culture". -fymenhera
I'm mentally ill. I've always liked cute medical themed aesthetics. When I first found menhera I was initially happy there was a name for this specific branch of "sickly-kawaii" because I liked expressing my illness in cute ways, but always felt kind of weird doing so. It makes me feel, I guess "unified" and not alone.
And I like the themes of raising awareness and saying that you can be unwell, but you can also be cute-that your illness does not define you with sterotypes.
I also... just think it looks good.
I gravitate to syringes because I've had too many blood tests to try and figure out if I'm dying, anemic or just depressed. (I'm anemic AND depressed!)
