one more thing: i know many queer/poor/depressed/etc folks self-medicate with weed or whatever because a lot of the time doctors are bull shit fuck dorks who don’t take them seriously. i want u to know that that is okay and good and that there is a vast gulf between effective self-medication and chemical dependency.
brains are super fucking weird. i can take vyvanse or ritalin safely and without issues but i can’t drink without turning into a completely untrustworthy and unsafe vodka goblin. i guess what i’m saying is that the line between medicine and poison is individual and subjective and american healthcare is ballsack shitty.
