@ask-ickle-mod said: *pats arm* I know it can be easy to, when you’re facing different diseases, feel less confident in your body–but your body can work with you to repair itself and keep you alive and comfortable! One of the best ways I’ve found for being comfortable in my skin is to think about how easy it is to breathe out of both nostrils, cause that’s the first thing to go when I’m sick @ask-ickle-mod said: But when I breathe with ease in and out of both nostrils, I remember that my body is working hard to maintain itself. Yours is working with you to repair itself!
Thanks for taking the time to offer the kind words, Aimee. Got a few anon messages telling me that since I’m attractive, I don’t have a reason to hate my body, but there’s a whole lot more to your relationship with your body than just the way it looks. It’s just been so long since I’ve been entirely healthy, it feels like my body isn’t doing a great job taking care of itself. Even if it’s trying, you know?
I mean last term I got such a horrible chest infection that I injured a rib from coughing too hard, and even though it wasn’t a horrible rib injury, it took 9 weeks before the pain completely went away, and the cough took almost as long to go away even with medication. And then this term I get hit with a horrible throat infection with a debilitating fever that has set me incredibly behind in my classes. And then while I was in the worst stage of my third bout with this mystery throat disease, I had a genital herpes outbreak, got a yeast infection, and have had a period that has lasted almost three weeks of nonstop bleeding and no one knows why. I’ve become completely cut off from my friends because I’ve been so sick and unable to really do anything. The only thing good that’s happened is starting to date my boyfriend, and we’ve been working to make that happen despite my body’s mutiny.
I’m frustrated. There are things about my body that I love, but it’s like living in an apartment that’s constantly falling apart with a landlord that refuses to fix anything.
Predictions for Alec/Matt’s “heartbreaking” performance in 2x10?
I’ve read quite a few times that apparently, Matthew’s performance in episode 10 broke hearts on set, and after seeing the promo photos from that episode (and the lack of Alec in them), it has me both excited and hopelessly worried. I’d love to hear what people are speculating will happen or whatever insight they are thinking with, especially if you have book insight to share with someone who hasn’t read them. I’m all ears, do share :)
No, no, if you call him when he asks you not to, you're just gonna look weak and you're gonna regret it. Whenever you feel like calling him, you come find me first ... and I will punch you in the face.
I now officially have foreign objects inserted into my fallopian tubes. It was definitely an unpleasant procedure, but the staff was wonderful and the aftercare was sufficient and I am very pleased. Or as much as I can be while still being high on xanax, vicodin, industrial-strength ibuprofen, and body trauma.
