hey if youre a disabled person who doesnt like making jokes about their illness or like hearing other people make jokes about your illness, its okay and youre still valid.
if you have to hear people say unfunny comments about your struggles or pain and try to excuse it with “i have other disabled friends who are completely fine with jokes about their illness”, “its better to laugh than to cry” or “ youll have to get used to it, youre gonna be sick the rest of your life”, im really sorry and you shouldnt have to put up with that.
you are the only person who gets to decide whether youre okay with certain jokes/jokes at all about your illness, no one but you.
youre not overly sensitive or boring for not wanting to poke fun at something awful that is happening to you.
please come @ anyone tryna make that decision for you, your illness has already taken so much away from you, dont let anyone else take anything else away.
Dear God I’m so annoyed with this eds support group I’m in on facebook.
One person posted saying no matter what birth control she’s on, she gets pregnant (even got pregnant with tied tubes) and doesn’t want kids because of eds. She can’t find a doctor to perform a partial hysterectomy on her because of her age. She was super adamant about not wanting kids.
And you know what 90% of comments were? Women telling her she can still have kids with eds and sharing their stories and pictures of her kids. It’s so fucking cruel. She clearly stated she didn’t want kids. She’s terrified in her current situation and these women are rubbing her face in it. I’m so fucking mad
Because calling Nygmobblepot the Titanic of ships is the worst thing that’s ever been said about our ship? Because it couldn’t POSSIBLY be a joke about how Oswald literally sank into the water. Because Robin is speaking of them as villains who crash and burn together, but could still possibly work together. Please don’t freak out. This was nothing.
