Denial: a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence.
I am fully aware that there has never been any other word for any other day, but that is inconsequential. This. is. the. word. of. the. day. Or maybe even the word of my life. Denial. I am in it. Suck. At least, according to my therapist and the all trusty Wikipedia. I didn't realize it was possible to be in denial while a tube is in your nose. It seems...a bit...incongruous, doesn't it? But yeah. In case you were wondering, it's possible. Please learn this from me, and don't test it out yourself. :/
