Nice Ranma 1/2 reference!! *holds hand up for a possible high-five*
*high-fives!* =D I’m so stoked that you guys caught that! I felt like Ranma’s such an old anime/manga that no one was going to get the reference.
Ranma was the first anime I obsessed over. And when I was done with it, I jumped to Inu-Yasha. Fun times! But I can still watch Ranma and get so excited over the hilarity of the tropes and the weird misunderstandings. I think I need to go watch an episode before bed now.

something that has usually worked for me in the Bad Times is just. Giving myself an hour. no i don’t want to wake up. but i tell myself. get up. and if in an hour we feel worse, we’ll go back to bed. i say to myself: you don’t have to like it. you just have to do it. sometimes i get to the end of the hour and go back to bed. but a lot of times after a shower and water and maybe doing some jumping jacks or stretching i feel better. there’s a lot to do in an hour that makes it a little less oppressive to breathe. picking out good clothes, putting on good music, doing your makeup so tight it forms a blade, texting a friend, making tea, trying a new hairstyle, making an omelette. it’s gotta be up though, nothing in bed, nothing still, nothing just sitting and staring into the void. it’s got to be moving. creating things helps. journalling helps. but not in bed.
i think we who are mentally ill kind of got. a double dose of inertia. and sometimes the push it takes to overcome that inertia keeps us in bed. but i have found a lot that just. starting to move. helps. even a little. because if you’re up you might as well make the bed. and you might as well go to one class - you can skip the second if the tired gets worse. and once you’re at that one class, you make it to the second because why not.
it doesn’t always work. but give yourself an hour. sixty minutes. say: okay. it’s gonna suck and that first push might take all of our effort and we might sit on the floor for an hour and if that happens, fine, we’ll go back to bed. but then you tried. you got up and tried. and something about that makes the guilt a little less harsh and makes you feel a little bit more powerful and the next time you wake up and your body wants to sit on the floor, you say: no, thanks, we did that yesterday and my hips still hurt. let’s see if i can shower. and maybe you sit in the shower instead but you did take a shower so it probably counts. there’s a lot of power in baby steps. i believe in you. and i think you can do a lot with those sixty minutes.
(i know it’s past i’m sorry) but this one’s for ya’ll! Thank you so much for everything, these past months have been so much fun ヾ(♡ ³♡)ノ Especially @avoidakedavra for being the sweetest and most supportive person ever
Idk a lot of people are talking about how Toxic Rick “cares” about morty, but we have to consider the difference between Latching Onto Someone Because They Rely On You And Forming An Abusive Relationship With Them, and actually taking time to form a healthy bond with someone. Rick doesn’t like how attached he is to Morty, and how he treats morty as a result. He is blatantly abusive to him in the Toxic Versions, he tells Morty he’s pathetic and stupid, and that he himself is God and a Genius and Powerful.
Rick doesn’t like how Morty and him have basically formed a parasitic relationship with each other. With Pure Rick, we can see him actually try to form a healthy relationship with Morty that doesn’t rely on power dynamics. This also contributes to why Pure Rick didn’t realize until later that Toxic Rick relied so much on Morty. While Pure Rick still had a caring relationship with Morty, he realizes it’s not the same kind of relationship as before.
