why is everyone so upset about the things that other people do with their own goddamn bodies, like let me eat this chocolate cake and cut my hair if I want to it’s not your life it’s not your choice, i’m gonna fuckinG-
Hey to all those people telling people “ it’s not so bad, just power through the cramps” when they're on their period because it’s not an excuse to miss school/work etc.!
I had bad cramps today, but I tried to “power through it” and went to class anyways, even though my grandmother had to drive me because I couldn’t walk to the bus.
I tried to “power through it” when I started to feel like I was going to throw up in the middle of my lecture, leaving to take a walk outside in the cold to try and clear my head, even though walking made my right side feel as though it was being ripped in two.
I tried to “power through it” when I started getting cold sweat all over my body, taking off my sweater and then putting it back on two seconds later because my body couldn’t decide if it was hot or cold.
I tried to “power through it” when spots started to appear in my vision, and just kept walking towards the exit.
I tried to “power through it” when I started to dry heave, and started walking faster.
I tried to “power through it” when my ears started ringing and the spots took over my vision and I was so so hot but shivering and my side felt on fire and twisted into knots and stabbed all at once.
I tried to power through it to the point where I collapsed in the middle of my college hallway. A stranger brought me to Outreach Services, where I lay on the floor, vomiting, for an hour until somebody could pick me up and take me home.
The school paramedics told me that I had passed out because I put too much stress on my already taxed body. My body was taxed because of hormonal fluctuations and blood loss aka my period.
Nothing like this has ever happened to me before. In the past when I’ve had cramps like this, I’ve stayed in bed and eaten strawberries and watched MASH all day.
So don’t you DARE tell me that you should “power through the cramps and do it anyways”. Powering through made me pass out. Powering through made me have to be wheeled out of the school in a wheelchair because I couldn’t keep my balance to walk. Powering through made my grandmother with osteoporosis and a tendency to panic have to come pick me up from school and help me up the stairs and almost break her hip when I started to collapse backwards on the front steps. Powering through made my 13 year old brother have to supervise me while I took a bath because I was afraid I would pass out and drown (he was super sweet about it actually; we closed the curtain and he read me Voyage of the Dawn Treader). Powering through made my mother who works to support our family pretty much on her own have to take time off work to come home and make sure I was okay.
In conclusion; If someone feels crappy because of their period cramps, leave them alone. Don’t make them do things anyways, because you might make it worse. And definitely don’t make them feel bad for not wanting to do things because of cramps; that’s the reason I even got out of bed this morning. Be nice to people on their period. Possibly buy them chocolate or painkillers. Nut don’t make them do things when they have cramps, and definitely don’t tell them “it’s nothing, power through” because cramps? Cramps can be one of the worst things you could possibly imagine.
Happy Birthday! (a day early!) 🎂
You work so hard and do so much. I’m sorry you’re feeling so sad and down today so I wanted to give this to you a little sooner.
💕 I hope you have a good rest of the day and you feel brighter!
ahaha wait, what the heck…? how does UNDYNE know anything about all that…?
i think alphys more than anyone would be very understanding of when someone makes a mistake or keeps a secret. but just what kind of mistakes were happening when they were all underground…?
this is another page that was originally 2 pages of 3 and 4 panels respectively, then combined into 1. so it’s technically like getting two pages! i guess. sorry if it’s one-page updates for awhile. it’s a busy time of year!
It had been a while since Marco returned to his own dimension. He was beginning to feel more at home, but he still spent much of his days thinking about Hekapoo and the life he had lived there. He still couldn’t believe that those 16 long years had ended up meaning nothing. Life here had hardly changed, and yet he couldn’t help but feel as though part of the world had carried on without him.
Finally he couldn’t take it anymore. He had to go back. He had to see how much had changed there. Would he return to the self he had become there? Would Hekapoo still be there? More importantly, would she still remember him?
That thought along gave him pause. He stood there with his hand hovering over the scissors. What if she didn’t remember him? What if those 16 years meant as little to her as the people of this dimension who hadn’t seen it? He shook his head. He couldn’t let himself think like that. He just had to try.
Taking a deep breath, he grabbed the scissors and ripped the familiar hole between their dimensions and stepped through.
Marco had to admit, he was fairly disappointed to find that he did not magically turn back into the 30 year old stud muffin he had been when he was last here. But he was also glad that he was still young. This meant he could go and return at whatever age he was in his true dimension. He could live almost an entire lifetime here, and as long as he returned home, he could come back and do it all over again.
Looking around to get his bearings, he realized he was in the same grove where he had first met Hekapoo. He did not see her immediately, though. “Hekapoo?” He called, unsure if she would know he was there or not. Perhaps he should have called ahead?
Always be yourself. Never try to hide who you are. The only shame is to have shame. Always stand up for what you believe in. Always question what other people tell you. Never regret the past it’s a waste of time. There’s a reason for everything - every mistake, every moment of weakness, every terrible thing that has happened to you. Grow from it. The only way you can ever get the respect of others is when you show them that you respect yourself and most importantly, do your thing and never apologize for being you.
When people act like its canon that Kylo Ren was being corrupted by snoke still in the womb and was abused, feared or ignored by his family when these are both fan theories and not at all confirmed to be the correct interpretation of the scenes that they are drawn from and use that to prop up their “Kylo doesn’t know any better” crap as if anyone who disagrees is stupid…
Aww boo hoo sad 40 year old man is upset cause I didn’t want to date him because he said something that makes him seem better than other men 😂 poor fragile masculinity
He acting as if them saying it is any better. Like his brothers are just douches if they’re jealous of that. And like this only further shows how fragile masculinity is. I could literally feel his sexism, hypermasculinity, and male superiority in the last post but god he’s just screaming it 😂😂😂 but right let’s cover it with that I’m beautiful and expect every man to change for me right right 😂😂
