even people I don't know

I didn’t know it was eating disorder awareness week until I went out to lunch with an old friend from treatment a few days ago. As a some of you know, it’s not something I like to talk about. I don’t like to say its name, I call it my evil ex boyfriend, my mom calls it a diet, my dad calls it my little problem, and my best friend calls it that son of a bitch, and sometimes, when I see such minimal discussion or representation about ED out in the world, I wonder how anyone is supposed to talk about it at all. How something so abnormal and fundamentally insane has wormed it’s way into the lives of more women and men than at any other point in history like it’s nothing. And today when I started to see more posts and stories of survival on my dash, it lit that fire- this is happening, to more of us than anyone thinks. Recovery makes quiet warriors out of us and body positivity is an amazing start, but I think there can be more. 

I used my eating disorder to disappear, to assimilate, because as long as I could remember I had always been too loud, too big, and taken up too much space. I remember crying and punishing myself for two weeks after I saw the picture of me on the left. At 16 I didn’t understand that my belly would never be perfectly flat because it was distended from malnutrition or that my calves were swollen from the five miles runs I took every single day. I didn’t know how to ask those questions.

It seems like every day when I check the ‘tickling’ tag, there’s a new post from someone who’s pissed off about fanfictions in the tag and is trying to tell people to stop posting them

Well, maybe I get really sad pissed when people dirty up the tag with attempts to insult, discourage, and even bully away one of my favorite tickle-themed media, that’s being created by such talented, lovable writers just wanting to make their favorite characters laugh, who don’t need general negativity being directed at all of them as a whole just because you’re too lazy to scroll past fics or blacklist tags like tickle fic/fic/fanfiction/fanfic/etc. that I KNOW we all use.

heads up to anyone that checks the ‘ray narvaez jr’ tag!

there’s a flashing gif that ray had originally linked on twitter that a person posted in the tag without any sort of trigger warning. PLEASE be careful if you are prone to seizures caused by flashing!!!

edit: i asked the person to tag it, and they said they would, but still just be cautious. sometimes blacklist doesn’t always work.

GENDER IS CONFUSING

SEXUALITY IS CONFUSING

FEELINGS ARE CONFUSING

EVERYTHING IS CONFUSING

Lifehack: if you go into the theaters with the mindset that books and movies are different forms of entertainment you’ll be a lot happier in life

   I have an extremely bad habit of calling people by terms of endearment if I’m not sure what to call them/to make things sound a little nicer or caring. If I ever call you something (dear, darling, sweetie, etc.) and it makes you feel uncomfortable please don’t hesitate to tell me. If you’ve got a nickname you’d rather be called, please tell me. I’m all about making sure this is comfortable and fun for everyone.

This is Key. She is one of my closest friend’s sister and she’s been fighting cancer for almost 4 years. She is only 18 years old and she got a relapse. She is a really optimistic girl and she doesn’t want to give up.

However, chemos are very expensive and I’m just sharing this here to see if you guys would help her by donating. The minimum is 5 pounds.

[If you donate, please click this link]

Please pray for her. Share this post and let others know that she needs our help.

UPDATE (2/15/15):

Today, her mom shared me a message that was it was the International Day of Childhood Cancer and that Key is going to complete 4 years of fighting cancer in March 3. In December she got her 6th surgery because of a metastasis they found in her lung so her middle lobe of the lung was cut out. A few days ago, they found another metastasis in her left lung, and she’s going to have surgery on the 24th.

She needs your help! If you could donate, please do it! Please share this again and again! signal boost this, please!

Focus on the dream, focus on the details, picture them, feel them. The TARDIS will track on your subconscious and extract the relevant information. It should be able to home in on the moment in your timeline when you first had that dream.
