Things not to say to a spoonie.

“It won’t kill you getting up early.” They don’t know what fatigue is like. But It actually feels like you’re dying.

You take as many naps as you need to get through the day.

“At least it’s not cancer.” They’ve have no idea what you’re going through, so please don’t act like you do.

Just ignore those idoits, who don’t even know what the word “chronic” means. Just think of things that make you happy.

“You don’t look sick.” What do you think “invisible illness” means? They’ve obviously never felt ill, because then they would know, it doesn’t always make you look different.

You’re beautiful, whether you think so or not.

“You’re not disabled, I don’t see a wheelchair.” Not all disabilities are visible.

Just because you’re disabled, it doesn’t mean you’re not a hero.

“I hope you feel better soon.” I know it sounds like they’re trying to be kind. But a “chronic illness” is something that will never go away. So they’re just making that person more depressed.

You have other people with chronic illnesses you can talk to. They understand.

“Why are you so lazy?” A disabled person has a limited ablity to do anything. You’re not aware of what they’re going through.

These people don’t understand how much effort you put in, day in, day out. You go at your own pace.

Feel free to add more.

Warnings: Bones Soul mate AU, fluff, angst, cursing, pretty much the normal stuff.

A/N: I have read so many soul mate AU’s that I’m intrigued and want to try my hand at it. Just in case this idea that I have isn’t new, I’m not trying to copy anyone! For this first part, if you’ve ever had a migraine, you understand the pain!

Your head was pounding. Scotty had decided to send you to Jeffries Tube 7 to check one of the conduits there. Climbing the ladders and through tubes wasn’t helping your head at all. By the time you get back to engineering to report to Scotty, you have a full-blown migraine. Scotty sends you to the Medbay after taking one look at your pale face and drawn features.

Prompt: This is a little fic for @ellen-reincarnated1967. She’s found herself in quite a funk with a migraine and posted a little request (found here). I couldn’t resist, as I myself suffer from chronic migraines. I hope you like it Andi!

“Okay…here we go. Lock it up, background. And action,” the director called, beginning the scene. You readied yourself for your coverage, keeping your eyes closed until they called the final action.

Your head was pounding and everything made it worse. Tears brimmed in your eyes just from how bad it was. It had been a long day of shooting and no matter how many times you told the director about how you were feeling, he still wanted to get ‘just this last scene’ finished. That ‘last scene’ was three scenes ago.

“You know, I can hunt just as well as the two of you can,” you spoke in , doing your best to keep your voice from wavering. You tried your hardest to keep your eyes steady on Jared and Jensen, without looking at the camera. The lights around you made you dizzy and you stumbled, catching yourself before you could fall.

“S-Stop. I’m sorry.” You broke character, closing your eyes again and sitting down on the nearest chair. “I’m so sorry,” you breathed, putting your hands to your head.

I’m in a  post-migraine phase, so I”m groggy and thirsty and tired but… 

Thank you for 50 follows. About 20% of you guys came here in the last three or four days. Even though I have no idea where any of you came from, thanks for following!

@ people who experience migraines

how do you deal with like… those hours after and the day after when you’re still kinda fucked up and drained. i had my first migraine in a long while from like 1-5ish AM last night and i’m still…. suffering from the post-migraine aftermath

anonymous asked:

I was scrolling your blog and saw posts about migraines. And I just wanna say that if you have an iPhone and go under Settings > General > Accessibility then you can invert colors and greyscale which makes it a tiny bit darker. It's helped my migraines before, though yours sound way more severe than mine are.

Oooo shit i forgot abt that feature
wow all those years of “why is the lowest brightness setting not low enough

shotasezaki  asked:

my migraines arent that bad (but still frequent and all), but am i allowed to reblog your migraines post? cause ive literally heard all of these before

of coursw you are!! no matter how minor an illness is, it is still an illness, and it still sucks

I’m sick, have an ear infection, and have been waking up with the same post concussion migraines I have had for the past year. Overall, I feel like shit. Is death an emotion, cause I’m feeling it. I probably won’t be posting all weekend, maybe I will depending on the state of my migraines. They have been so bad recently that I’ve had blurry vision, but I will try my hardest

ok I love reaper76 and I love lOVE blind76 but where is all the blind76 chillin with the ovw kids?

  • the team forgetting that he’s blind when he doesn’t have his visor on and 76 making jokes about it a la toph
  • the team remembering he’s blind, going out of their way to make things easier for him even though he insists it’s unnecessary
  • one time the kids try to prank him by moving his stuff.  They learn quickly that is a Bad Idea.  Lucio still can’t find where 76 hid his headphones.
  • family barbecue where 76 is cooking without his visor.  He claims he can. Listen mcree your burger isn’t burnt it’s well done just be grateful you have one
  • regular challenges where he plays one of D.va’s video games blind while the kids tell him what to do in the background.  Then one of the kids blindfolds themselves and they switch.  They all bet on who’ll do the best.  D.va’s usually on top since she knows the levels like the back of her hand but 76 isn’t far behind.
  • the kids always grabbing spare visors just in case something happens to 76′s mask on missions.  It’s saved his ass more than a few times.
  • on the same vein as that migraine headcanon post, the kids find out about the migraine problem and collab with winston on making the visor less strenuous to wear.  They surprise him with the new one and he wouldn’t admit it but he’s really, really grateful they care so much.
  • just…. please give me more kids w/ blind76 thank you
