say no to drug

stop…flirting

anonymous asked:

(Not a suggestion) My mom ignores events that happened a few years back and says they don't matter, she's talking about NOW. That she's 'sorry' and that there's no reason in bringing them up. Like for example when I was 8 she was 'drugged up' and in a hotel room slapped me in the face for no reason. I still think about it, I repressed it and recently I remembered. And she says it doesn't count because she was drugged. Doesn't everything that's happened count? For example emotional and physical?

The simple act of her getting herself drugged up in front of you is putting you at risk, so yeah it definitely counts bc she was facilitating that behavior by going and taking drugs

There’s a damaging mindset that if something is used as self care for neurotypicals, then it won’t help or soothe mental illness at all. Adding to this is a fear that if your illness is helped by things such as exercise or diet, then you’re not ‘ill enough’ and you’re invalid. This is all wrong!!

Some True Facts:

  • Exercise has been scientifically proven to ease serious mental illnesses such as depression, bipolar and anxiety
  • Medication and therapy aren’t the only things that help mental illnesses
  • If you don’t take medication or go to therapy and find your own holistic ways of dealing with your pain you’re still so so valid and I’m proud of you!
  • Some good habits to adopt to keep away/ help stabilize your disorder are: A good sleep schedule, a balanced diet, regular exercise and little to no alcohol/ drug intake.

I’m in no way saying that the things I’ve listed above will cure you but they really really help! It’s unlikely you will be as happy as you can be even if you complete therapy and take medication but don’t sleep well or eat well. I hope everyone’s happy n healthy x

shitty advice of a college student.

OR: some (actually helpful) stuff my first semester of college has taught me.

disclaimer: this is from the point of view of a community college student. my experiences may be different from other students, but overall I think this list could be very helpful to anyone going to a college, university, high school, or for any students just hoping to kick procrastination in the ass. I’ll probably be uploading updated versions/parts of this in the future, but here’s some stuff based on my experience so far.

  • do. work. every. day. even if it’s just a little bit of work. don’t procrastinate.
  •  college isn’t like high school; oftentimes, professors won’t expect homework from you every single day of class. usually, you’ll have due dates of when large sections of assignments or papers are due. make the most of your time. do not wait until the night before to get 6 sections of homework done by 11:59.
  • in reality, you should be doing homework and studying for every single class. but remember that you need to put more time into the classes that are toughest for you. For example, math is my weakest subject so I usually put more homework time into doing my Stats homework.
  • if you don’t want to do it, or have been procrastinating on doing it, it should be the thing you’re getting done first!!
  • books are hella expensive everywhere. if you can’t find any free versions of your textbooks online, try to buy your textbooks used. I buy all of my textbooks used, with the exception of one book which I’ve rented. Personally, I recommend buying your books bc it’s a great study strategy to actually own the books for your classes and be able to write and highlight inside of them… but this is a personal preference.
  • doing homework on your bed makes you lazy. work at a desk, library, coffee shop, outside; anywhere that will make you sit down and focus.
  • let your phone run out of battery and leave. it. alone.
  • if u don’t have a planner/agenda/calendar already then there is nothing more I can help u with pal ur on ur own
  • make a study playlist bc you’ll need it at some point. find music that helps you study the best! for example, I strictly can only study to soft music or just instrumentals, but I know some people who study really well to rap and hip-hop. find what works for you! remember this should relax you, not distract you.
  • hydrate. I keep a water bottle right on my desk when I study so when I look up I’m reminded to take a sip. being hydrated is important!!! not only will this make your body and skin happy but it’ll also make your brain work a little harder and focus more!
  • I know things can get tough and busy but pls pls eat and sleep well I’m begging u
  • follow-up to the last point: let yourself go pee as many times as you need to. it’s ok. it doesn’t count as your break. you’re not wasting time from doing work. do us all a favor and go to the bathroom already.
  • follow-follow-up: know the difference between taking a break and giving up.
  • learn how to say no to temptations like hanging out with your friends or distracting yourself in the depths of Youtube and Netflix. you have work to do and you know it!!! don’t make yourself feel bad by suffering. if you want good grades, your education (next to your mental/physical health) should be your first priority.
  • reward yourself for working hard. this could be a night out with friends, a candy bar, boba, whatever floats your boat.
  • I know it’s a drug but I don’t care what anyone says: if I need to drink coffee then I’m drinking that damn cup of coffee.
  • priority-wise, your education should always top your studyblr. every. single. time.
