once i take my bra off, don’t ask me to do shit for u bitch bc once that bra comes off, i am clocked out of life. i am done. i am finished. i am logged the fuck out.
do u ever put on a shirt and look in the mirror and go
"no. this does not represent the full potential of my boobs"
this was me the first time i got anxiety treatment and realized WOW I DON’T ACTUALLY NEED TO FEEL PHYSICALLY SICK EVERY DAY ugh i hate psychs that refuse anxiety meds
i feel so much better already, because whatever mechanism it works by prevents anxiety in the first place instead of having to take something once i start freaking out. i feel very happy cat emoji about it 😽
ARE WE THE SAME PERSON??! My new doc just put me on Celexa yesterday. It’s my first round with brain meds, and I’m frankly a little nervous (shocking) about it.
welcome to the club, friend! let me know if you have any qs about it or ssris in general. actually, i’m going to text you about it in a minute.
i felt the same when switching to meds that actually worked. like oh yeah thats what colors look like
exactly!! i’m so happy and lucky to have good results with the first things i tried this go around. last time i went through i think five different ones before finding something that worked. months of terrible side effects and lots of money in psych visits. so this feels like a comparative cake walk.
after a lot of thought, i decided to go back on ssris again. it’s going ok after a few days now that my ability to focus is back (a couple annoying side effects but no nausea, yay).
the revelatory part is the low dose klonopin my doc put me on for the month until the celexa starts working. my baseline life experience has been so anxiety-ridden, and i had no idea just how bad it was. it’s like the first time i put on glasses and realized what the world was supposed to look like. I’M SO RELAXED. and so angry at my old psych who diagnosed me with gad but repeatedly refused to prescribe any anti-anxiety meds.

Cutting off water to those who can’t afford it has roots in a long-standing, inequitable pricing scheme
Anna Lappé explains how what happens in Detroit this summer with water shut-offs to the least powerful could affect people in cities across the US.
I keep putting up links to, and quotes from, news stories about this because I think people aren’t freaking out enough. Detroit is shutting off water for nearly half its residents, with no allowance for people who are elderly or ill. There are so many bad things happening in the world—hell, there are so other bad things happening in Detroit!—that it’s hard to remember how bad this is. They decided, in March, to shut off the water to half the city, a city where 38% of people live below the poverty line.
We do nothing because the majority of those people are African American. This is racist and not OK. Remember how bad you felt when you finally understood what happened in New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina? Don’t feel bad this time. Let the (state appointed! Unelected!) city government of Detroit know that the whole world is watching. Talk about this!
do you have any idea how hard it was to reblog that and not talk shit about myself in the tags
