What people think this means “I’ll use this as an excuse to do whatever I want all day instead of committing to other things that need to be done”
What it actually means “I’ll be obsessively checking the clock all day because I’m constantly worried I’ll be late if I don’t. I also worry that if I commit to doing anything else important that day it’ll distract me from the time and I’ll miss the appointment. This will be a day filled with anxiety and in no way relaxing until the appointment is over with"
“if you can’t brush your teeth that’s fine uwu one step at a time” posts are supportive and that’s great but I’m about to have a 4.4k$ dental bill because I wasn’t taking care of my teeth when I was super depressed so uhh brush your fuckin teeth
the reason I bring up those posts is because every time I saw one I felt less and less bad about not brushing them and when my teeth actually started causing problems it made my MH worse because I was having horrible anxiety about my teeth getting worse and now I’m facing procedures that will probably be pretty painful and will definitely be expensive so I kinda got some beef with the anti-recovery culture on this site
colgate makes some pretty cool little waterless disposable toothbrushes that are good to keep beside your bed or somewhere else accessible for days when brushing your teeth feels like a monumental task. they’re like $5 for a pack of 24 on amazon and i know they’re available at drug stores as well. they look like this.
i have pretty intense depressive episodes + emetophobia that is sometimes triggered by brushing my teeth so i get that it can be difficult but the OP of this post is right. dental health is really important and even using a disposable toothbrush is better than nothing!

Followed a new band tag here on tumblr dot com and now have a new person who posts selfies and tags them as pop punk bands showing up on my dash regularly
