sitting figure

[Drawing of a stick-figure girl sitting behind a table talking to three other stick-figure girls standing opposite her. Above them are the words, “POTS Problem #45: Losing People!” The girl behind the table says, “Hey! It’s been forever since I’ve seen all of you!” The other girls say, in turn, “Yeah, I stopped texting when you got…weird.” “I didn’t understand your illness and didn’t bother to try to figure it out!” “I’ve always been a flake, so you’re not missing out on much.”]

Slightly salty. ✌️

story time lol

okay so it’s always been a lowkey pet peeve of mine to call this sport ice skating over figure skating, idk why, maybe figure skating sounds more formal over ice skating and i consider this a Serious Sport but i won’t chop ur head off if u call it ice skating or anything

so i met with a recruiter from the marines today and he asked a lot of questions and one was like what do u do in ur free time

and bruh i couldn’t say waste all my time on tumblr so i said i ice skate. and this man, this grown ass man, was like “oh u mean figure skate???” and i just sat there for a moment like

yeah that’s what i meant

but also i was kinda thinking, what do u mean??? what other ice skating is there???? speed skating???

Bonus-

He’s the only one that got an invitation like that >:}

Look @angel-with-a-pipette I finally did the thing we talked about forever ago. Hope I did it justice >.<

Just in case anyone needed the reassurance.

Here I am, a person with Real Actual PTSD who has been professionally diagnosed for 19 years and got that diagnosis re-confirmed by a different professional 3 years ago, telling you that:

  • Self-diagnosis is valid.
  • It doesn’t matter if it was “just” bullying or “just” emotional abuse or “only” mild physical abuse or “not that bad” of an accident or “not that dangerous” of a situation.  All of those things can cause PTSD, even if it wasn’t as severe as what other people have gone through.
  • Your triggers are not stupid or exaggerated or made up.
  • Your triggers don’t have to cause a full-blown panic attack or flashback to be real.
  • Your flashbacks don’t have to be vivid visual hallucinations of a past event to be real.
  • You are not too young to have PTSD.  Trauma doesn’t card you.  Your age doesn’t make your experience invalid.
  • You matter.

anonymous asked:

Evan what made you realize you liked Jared?

E: I actually took a year off so i could save up money… B-but Connor, Jared and I would still occasionally hang out. As much as we could at least…

E: But it was…a lot less than when we were in highschool.

E: Soon, I found myself missing Jared more than anything else. I started missing the smallest things about him…

E: The way um… how soft and warm his hands were when our hands would just brush against each other when we walked

E: … And how I wanted our hands to be more than just barely touching

E: So… I guess you could say I was “pining” for Jared for awhile… It was hard pretending those feeling weren’t there, but I’m happy that I don’t have to pretend anymore.
