girls be like *he is my comfort character* and then bam its the most emotionally traumatised ficitonal man you’ve ever seen
list of mundane things that feel like ancient human rituals
- cleaning or wipe your bare feet
- breaking off a piece of bread and handing it to someone
- putting the weight of a basket on your hip or head
- eating nuts or berries while hunched over close to the ground
- seeing something startling just out of your line of sight and very quickly stepping or leaping on to a larger object to get a better view
- cupping your hands into running water to wash your face
- the unanimous protection of a baby or child in a public space where women are present
- when an elderly woman laughs and grips your forearm tightly
cinematic parallels: tumblr somehow becoming one of the most bearable social media platforms in 2020/2021, and that speed skater who made it to the olympics because everyone else fell over
tumblr, doing the bare minimum of keeping posts chronological and not forcing targeted ads down our throats 24/7:
…They did what… to you?
I will make them pay.
You’re fucking mine. And nobody, nobody, lays a goddamn finger on you.
Me when I get my car back from the mechanics and the adjustment on my seat is all wrong
This is the funniest fucking addition
i have a disease called “i believe i will have the love i have been reading about all these years one day”
ok very funny guys. you got me. now seriously who left all these neurotypicals in charge of the mental health field
who left all these healthy doctors in charge of the hospital
is literally what this sounds like
God, can you imagine how awful that would be? People with amputations consulting on things like prosthesis?
People in wheelchairs designing living and working spaces for people with mobility issues?
Autistic people actually trying to help other autistic people?
OMG, just thing – wouldn’t ti be awful if people who are now in remission actually helped manage the pain and other symptoms that come with having and treating cancer?
I mean seriously, what on Earth do any of those people really have to add to the discussion? What could they possibly know that an able-bodied neurotypical wouldn’t already know? I mean, experience doesn’t teach all that much!
My care for EDS got radically better when my doctor’s kid was diagnosed.
Dr. Marsha M. Linehan more or less reinvented the field of behavioral therapy after spending years being treated to the worst 1950-60s psychiatry had to offer. She created the system now known as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, now considered one of the most effective treatments for suicidal and self-destructive behaviors, as well as pretty much any other form of mental illness or mood/behavior disorders. She was able to do all of this BECAUSE she’s self-diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, not in spite of it.
The only therapist, out of the many I have seen over the past 30 years, to succesfuly treat my anxiety? The one who had anxiety herself. Not a coincidence.
The idea that a ‘healthy’ person is automatically more qualified than anyone else regardless of what field we’re talking about, is straight up abelism.
