“Holy fuck you’re such a bad liar!” “Huh, I’m a bad liar?” “Yeah!” “I’m a bad liar? I’m the fucking master liar, there’s no one who’s better liar than me! I man, you have no idea what I’ve gotten away with.” “Well, tell me. What have you gotten away with?” “No, I mean, you don’t want to know.”
this is a PSA from memebot’s dadmom because i know some of you are in the US and this is your first time voting so you might not know this but
YOU CAN’T VOTE ONLINE
THERE ARE NO APPS FOR VOTING
some states allow early or mail in voting BUT NO STATES LET YOU VOTE ONLINE.
if you see stuff about that IT IS PEOPLE TRYING TO OBSTRUCT VOTING
they are TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. they are hoping that if they spread misinformation about the election they can keep the left-leaning, internet-aware generation from the polls
THERE IS A LONG HISTORY OF DIRTY TRICKS LIKE THIS BEING USED TO ATTEMPT TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM VOTING. in previous elections we’ve seen lists of mostly Black people being targeted for calls saying to vote on the wrong day, stuff like that.
You will totally space out while your friends are talking.
When someone jokingly says “wake up” you might have an anxiety attack because you aren’t sure if you’re awake (and to my lovlies reading this, yes you are awake, you’re breathing and moving and alive).
When you ARENT disassociating, one of two things will happen:
-you’ll feel completely numb and unattached; not dissociating, more just not feeling
-EVERYTHING IS HYPER REAL AND ITS spinning BECAUSE IT’S SO INTENSE AND YOU NEED TO SET THINGS DOWN (tbh I call this disassociating even though it’s technically the opposite. It’s losing a grip on reality.)
Disassociation makes you:
very sleepy very fast
Feel like you have NO control over your limbs
Hear silence as an actual thing so bad that it hurts your ears
Actually freakishly well able to imagine exactly what you look like from across the room because tbh you feel like that’s exactly where you are, watching your body
feel like your surroundings are super small or super big or just different
Seriously, you will forget objects and people that you’re familiar with. I’ve had to stroke my pencil case for like, ten minutes to understand what I was holding during an episode.
See people’s faces blurred or not at all. Also might see missing parts on people or see extra parts, the scariest of all.
You might have hallucinations as a side effect.
You will CONSTANTLY be questioning reality.
Your grasp on time is zip. A day flies by in two seconds and an hour is three years and aghhgaKSJ
You might feel very, very small, physically, or incredibly huge. This is related to seeing yourself from across the room, I think; a different point of view.
During an episode, if it is bad enough, you will lose your balance and topple over and sometimes, everything is too dream-like for you to have enough control over your body to be able to get back up.
People’s compliments and good wishes tbh like? You’re so numbed out and just not there most of the time that you hardly process them.
You lose your train of thought easily because you feel like reality is constantly shifting, like it would in a dream.
Books are very hard to read because the words keep moving and swirling around.
Those jokes also that are like “You’ve been in a coma wake up blahblah”? THOSE WILL USUALLY SEND US INTO A FULL BLOWN PANIC ATTACK DO NOT SAY THAT EVER TO SOMEONE WHO DISASSOCIATES,
That’s all I can think of atm but if you disassociate, please feel free to add more. I want more people to understand this because it’s taking over my life badly.
And sweetheart, if you do disassociate, here’s your daily reminder that you do exist. That’s your heartbeat beating in there, it’s YOU breathing that air with YOUR lungs, YOU are thinking and breathing and thriving and alive and awake.
“Love between siblings grow when you are rough with each other. If you see her from afar, what should you do? Run up to her, just run. Lock her, lock her in first. Act as if you will pet her, and keep locking her in. Hold her down till she surrenders.” - Advice from SooHo, an Experience Brother.
