Mental health (bade)
I haven’t managed to get a therapist yet and sometimes I think about hurting myself* and I don’t really know how to talk about it. Friends and family are liable to totally freak out given my history and involve some kind of emergency services, which just makes things even worse, while mental health professionals know there’s a big difference between thoughts/feelings and, like, intention or anything more serious. It doesn’t even fucking make sense, why can’t my brain just be normal
A disabled comrade of mine has been having really bad luck with their car. Drove it through a puddle during Ida, but we got it running again, but then they stripped the bolt a bit doing an oil change and it ended up leaking oil, which caught fire and their whole car went up. They didn't have good insurance so the company isn't gonna pay out. We started a gofundme, anything you could give them would help a lot; https://gofund.me/268f1fe9 boost & share please!
one of the most important things I've learned as a queer adult is how to be frustrated with people without it meaning I hate or dislike them. Everyone I know does little shit that bothers me, or sometimes acts awful due to trauma/coping mechanisms/etc, learning how to be genuinely annoyed or frustrated or hurt without turning it into "and thus I condemn and judge you", rather just sometimes being annoyed and then moving on cause ya love people and we're all growing, is good
I think calling your ex at this time of night is a really good idea. It's the time for reconciliation, or at least setting the record straight. Personally I think you've gotten smarter and more attractive as the night has wound down, and now you're making good decisions, probably better than when it started even.
Consider that nucleated, atomized concepts of 'self-care' are frequently used as a means of smothering calls for meaningful systemic change under the pretense that any distress whatsoever reflects a failing on the part of the distressed party to be properly "mindful" or "reflective." Attempts to treat this distress turned general as a "mental health epidemic" may be well-meaning, but replicate the underlying deflection of responsibility. #selfcare #takeamoment #water #hydration #wet #moist
Please don't come to Hawaii right now. We Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders are disproportionately getting sick & dying as our hospitals overflow, and gov is just building more morgues. Don't participate in ongoing genocide.
There is no horror, no cruelty, sacrilege, or perjury, no imposture, no infamous transaction, no cynical robbery, no bold plunder or shabby betrayal that has not been or is not daily being perpetrated by the representatives of the states, under no other pretext than those elastic words, so convenient and yet so terrible: "for reasons of state."
