    Critical race theory is the liberty to teach black kids, white kids, and other children that nobody is born a slave; there was once a culture of hate that created such human rights abuses and atrocities in history - and how to notice the signs and prevent the spread of corruption. Expecting students to play out discrimination in schools until they graduate high-school or college, and then assimilate them into the same unsafe spaces for work and family life, is unconstitutional. The same can be said about Sex Ed and The Equality Act when it comes to rape culture!

    OCD RANT

    Hey everyone a friendly reminder the OCD isn't a "Teehee I'm so neat and clean ;;;33" Quirk but in fact a literal mental illness! Some things to keep in mind when talking to people or to keep in mind for yourself!

    You're not your thoughts

    Your thoughts do not define your morals

    Having "bad" or "dark" thoughts doesn't make you a bad person either!

    Your actions define you and not your thoughts! Literally can't stress this enough!

    You're not going to do that "thing" and it's going to be O.K.!

    OCD can be about anything and often times has a person think they are violent and disgusting and puts those thoughts on constant repeat! When someone with Diagnosed or even Undiagnosed OCD don't be a shit head and go around saying they're a horrible person for having thoughts and feelings and YES FEELINGS cuz OCD runs that damn deep that people literally are unable to help it completely even with meds and therapy! Basically be actually decent to people with mental illness when they are showing symptoms and not just the "accepted" mental illnesses and "acceptable" symptoms!

    Critical Race Theory - 10/21/21

    Sorry, *critical race theory*. White guilt IS the excuse "we have to feel/think it's our fault, blah, blah, blah." Because you're avoiding an education for yourself and others out of unnecessary discomfort! We are jus saying... acknowledge the living while they are here. People of color are no more temporary than Whites. Nobody is teaching everyone to hate white people, they want to be teaching everyone to hate racism. The desire is not corrupt - it's the lies and the suffering in silence that is! 

    School is the appropriate place for gender and race studies. We don't mean "critical" as-in "criticizing race" we mean "critical"as in essential and accurate analysis. It's literally just history from the perspective of civil rights and common sense instead of imposing the narrative of "slavery is over and it was the only mistake". That's sophisticated because it's adult communication and building trust instead of traumatizing children with stories they don't understand. That's an education. You also should consider that in the PAST many people have graduated with Phd's in law and medicine and still don't understand human rights because that's not the point of their academic study, so, it's really an advancement to be inclusive of everyone's freedom and independence. Critical race theory could explain why racism is wrong to minors without graphic descriptions of torture and humiliating people in the classroom.

    Dealing With Stress and Sadness

    There are times where I don't want to be productive and would prefer to stay in bed all day or binge watch movies/TV series. Sometimes, I would eat junk food and sweets to help me feel better. This helps me to distract myself with my stress and sadness.

    It's hard to motivate yourself if you're not feeling it. Problems and stressful thoughts occupies your mind all day making you feel weak and tired. People think you're doing okay because you have a smile on your face and you're functioning just fine but the truth is you're not. They only see what's on the surface but they don't see the struggle on the inside. I don't talk much about my struggles because I wanted to fix it on my own and I don't want to burden others.

    When I stared at my reflection on the mirror, I realized what I was doing wasn't healthy. So, I made a few changes.

    THE CHANGES I'VE MADE:

    1. Journaling

    Since I don't share much of my thoughts with others, I started journaling. Writing down what I feel or what happened to me on that particular day it lessens the baggage.

    2. Reflecting

    I love my alone time. I usually lock myself in the room so I won't be disturbed. Then, I would sit on my bed and replay the events that happened on that day. For me, reflecting helps me understand more of the situation that upsets or stresses me and thinking of better ways to react on those situations so that the next time I know how to handle it better.

    3. Meditating

    I've recently started meditating. Before, I thought that meditating was a waste of time and won't do any help but I was wrong. When I tried meditating, it helped me calm my mind. I felt more relaxed because it felt like the tension on my body lessened. I recommend you start meditating because it helps a lot. There are apps or videos that you can use while meditating. I suggest Headspace or maybe Youtube videos.

    4. Make a "Little Goals For The Day" List

    When you feel stressed or sad, you usually don't want to do anything. In order for me to stay productive, I've created a list that could help me. The "Little Goals For The Day" is a list that I made up where I would do small things so that I could be more productive. For me, doing the small things makes a big difference.

    You don't have to pressure yourself too hard for you to be active. You can do things your own way. Respect your time and pace. There's no need to rush.

    Hi, y’all. My name is Jeska Wood. I’m a writer and photographer with two wonderful children and an amazing partner.
    I’m going to be honest and say I haven’t been doing very well lately. No one in my family has. My oldest daughter has thrown up almost every day since the last week of August. She hasn’t made it through a full day of school yet. Last year, she had a 4.7 GPA, and now she’s failing despite documentation from doctors about what’s going on. We’ve seen a bunch of doctors at this point, and they agree it’s stress. She wakes up in the middle of the night to vomit. Apparently, we can hold onto our stress so much that when we lay down and close our eyes, we’re not actually resting, so she’s always exhausted. She’s now going to therapy twice a week, and anxiety meds are probably on the horizon. The thing is, I can’t blame her for her anxiety. There have been daily fights at her school, gun threats, and no mask enforcement. They keep doing prep rallies and assemblies where they yell at them for fighting. Her anxiety won’t go away until circumstances change. If this was a job, she could quit, and who wouldn’t? I am anxious, too, to the point where I don’t have the spoons to do… anything. It affects my disability, making it so much worse.
    I’m miserable here. My partner and my other child are too. Shreveport is literally one of the worst places in the country. It was the lowest growth, in the top ten of crime, most obese but one of the worst places for foodies, and the worst schools in the countries. There are nightly shootings and drive-bys. And it’s getting so much worse. We don’t have a future here. My children and grandchildren won’t either if we don’t get out now.
    So, we’ve decided to drop everything here, get a big loan and probably a bunch of credit cards, and move across the country to Washington. My partner has a degree in computer science with 20 years of experience. There are 100x the jobs, making more. And I might be able to get a part-time job or do professional photography because I’ll be able to use public transport. There isn’t any here. There aren’t even sidewalks here, so I can walk half a mile to the store. I don’t know if it’ll be enough, though.
    This place is the opposite of disabled-friendly. I have nerve damage that results in near-constant movement and muscle pain. I was already isolated before COVID. I need access to better doctors. My oldest and my partner does as well. My children deserve to be healthy and happy. And I do, too. I’m tired of feeling useless because of a lack of accessibility.
    The money would help us pay for the expenses of moving across the country. We won’t be taking much with us, and we’ll need a new (to us) car because ours is 20 years old. We’re hoping to do this around mid-January to early February 2022.
    I would be forever grateful for any help. This would mean a better life for my family and me. I feel horrible for asking, but for my children, I have to. Thank you in advance.

    Soooo teaching systemic racism is racist? Anybody also hearing this on the news-

    This might be a dead end if they are trying to be funny or something. Honestly, WTF.

    They don't mean literally teaching people how to discriminate, to be clear. They are teaching kids about the history of discrimination and how to notice the signs of RACIST inequality. Sounds constructive to me. 

    Is this a coded conversation about privacy? I said I'm not going to consent to that because I have not consented at all and I can't understand what anybody is saying. I hope there's some standards in the 21st century but obviously not. 

    You can hardly publicly claim responsibility for rape and then just move on with your life. I'm not going to sign some contract or something with a strange man, I think that defeats the purpose. I am the victim? I don't think you are empathizing with me?

    I don't know what people are imagining here but I'm telling the truth there's not supposed to be anything left to the imagination. Why don't you just respect people? Including me and other transgender/queer/black people? I'm not Black. Activism isn't a joke. Grow up. 

    Are you some kind of pervert? That's TMI. Get a therapist, for real. Get some exercise. Go on a diet. Have some respect for yourself. Report crimes. Turn yourself in. IDK. Telling the truth is really simple. If you're trying to gross people out that's not very truthful it's just rude.

    Almost every job I look at I would be physically incapable of doing

    The rest, I don’t qualify for in another way (required experience, skills, qualifications,etc.)

    Like I literally cannot sit, stand, walk, etc. for periods longer than like 10-15 minutes. I cannot lift 25-50 lbs. (Like so many jobs require) without it causing extreme pain. I can’t lift more than 15 lbs. for an extended period (anything longer than a few minutes, absolute max, and if I reach that limit I can’t lift anything else for the rest of the day, maybe even the next several and that’s if I’m lucky). I can’t do any repetitive motions for more than a couple of days before I have to stop for at least a couple months

    I have to spend most of my time laying down, and even then it only does so much, I still flare at least 1 day a week and my pain is at, at least a 9 every day. My bones feel like they are always about to break inside my body, my muscles feel like they are decaying under my skin

    What jobs can I do? What job will let me work only for short periods, almost exclusively from my bed? What job will let me work only when I’m physically capable of doing so, and won’t be upset if I wake up in the morning and can’t work that day? What can I do?

    At this point I really don’t know what to do, I’ve tried applying to be a virtual assistant and never get hired, I’ve tried getting set up with transcription work, but my hands aren’t always cooperative so I don’t have the best wpm count, I thought about newspaper delivery, but it requires repetitive hand motions, I have tried so many things and I either couldn’t handle it physically or mentally or I just don’t qualify overall

    Back when I worked full time I was taking way too much OTC pain medication to just be able to get to work where I’d spend the day between a 9.8 and a 10 on the pain scale (And yes I can tell the difference between a 9 and 9.8 or even a 9.8 and a 9.9), I’d have migraines at least a couple days a week and most of the time that meant continually going to throw up only to have to go back to work and deal with the fact I couldn’t see out of one of my eyes, and all of this made my overall pain worse. I used to have days where it was at an 8 or an 8.5, I can’t remember the last one of those I had though now

    Even working part time was destroying me, I just wasn’t given another choice. I’d work for 2 or 3 days and spend the rest recovering, something I was never fully able to do as I always had school on top of it. I had managers that knew I was terrified enough of heights that I’d never get on a ladder so they’d tell me that my options were to lift heavy items or go up on the ladder. I’d spend days or weeks practically unable to move. This only severed to work to ensure my pain never drops below a 9 anymore

    None of this even addresses the mental health problems (or even other physical issues I deal with) I deal with both as a result of all this and just in general, and yet here are my parents starting to make statements that I need to get a job when I ask for easy to eat foods to be purchased, here are my parents insisting I get a job or they are going to be taking away the few things I have that bring me joy, and here I am looking and looking and looking, and finding nothing that works within all these limitations. Here I am begging whatever is out in the universe to just kill me

    So, please if anyone has any suggestions for a job that can be done that won’t make me worse, that won’t constantly demand that I shove through pain, and push through limits only to increase the pain I feel daily worse, that won’t treat me like shit, and can be done with no experience or with the maximum of a Bachelor’s degree in history and about 3-3.5 years of experience in customer service please tell me, because I have no clue, and nothing I look up helps.

    I am applying for disability but the soonest it will go through won’t be until the end of January at the earliest and that’s if they approve me right away, which is unlikely since Chronic Pain Syndrome is an invisible illness that doesn’t have a direct test to determine if you have it. My parents are convinced I’ll never get it, and I’ll never get Medicaid. They don’t seem to get that without both of those I’m essentially screwed at this point. They don’t get that I’m having to mentally prepare myself for the day I become homeless because they decide to kick me out or sell our family home

    Please, please, please help me

    My mind is a mess

    My mind spirals into a mess of thoughts messy strands of pain, despair, fear, loneliness.

    A mess I'm used to, a mess I've been through, a million times over. A mess that has left me broken, bruised, confused, and crying on the floor. A mess that has made me who I am. But who is that? How do you know who you are when you are so broken? This mess made me, and it can end me. This mess is mine, but it doesn't define, who I am.

    This mess is me, and I hope one day I can be free.

    So many thoughts to talk about!

    But when it is actually the time to talk about them, nothings comes to the mind, nothing surfaces. It's as if there wasn't anything to talk about to begin with.

    It happens and it's completely normal.

    Take your time to get comfortable with your thoughts.

    Slowly slowly get to know them.

    Pay attention to them.

    Write them down if not anything more.

    Then one day you will be able to get them out of your system. Relax and introspect.
