Disability doesn't come with extra time and energy

I’ve heard a lot of advocates of inclusion say things like “kids with disabilities work twice as hard as everyone else” or “my employees with Down’s syndrome never come in late or take a day off.”

This sounds like praise, but it isn’t.

The time disabled people spend working twice as hard as everyone else has to come from somewhere.

There are reasons why kids aren’t in school every waking moment. There is a reason why vacation time exists and why it’s normal to be late occasionally.

People need rest. People need leisure time. People have lives and needs and can’t do everything.

Being disabled doesn’t erase the need for down time. Being disabled doesn’t erase the need for play, or for connections to other people.

Working twice as hard as everyone else all the time isn’t sustainable. Praising disabled people for doing unsustainable things is profoundly destructive.

People with disabilities should not have to give up on rest, recreation, and relationships in order to be valued. We have limited time and energy just like everyone else, and our limitations need to be respected.

It is not right to expect us to run ourselves into the ground pretending to be normal. We have the right to exist in the world as we really are.

another coping post, people have told me to update it a bit and not limit the skills to delusions and auditory hallucinations. so now, the bigger and better coping post for psychotic symptoms (not just schizophrenia!) and i won’t do the “keep reading” thing, even though it’s a veeeery big post, because i kind of want people to see it. 

First off

try to manage your stress - psychotic symptoms has quite a lot to with stress. it’s also important for any mental health issue. 

don’t “self-medicate” - marijuana has shown to make psychotic symptoms worse and makes the risk of falling back into a psychosis bigger. other substances that can trigger/worsen/even cause psychotic symptoms are cocaine, speed, crystal meth, ecstasy, LSD, magic mushrooms and ketamine

take care of yourself - selfcare, mindfulsness, exercise, eat reguraly and healthy, sleep well… you get the idea.

know your early signs - it’s good to know when you start getting signs of another episode, so you can adjust your medication or talk to your doctor more often so you can avoid another episode. early signs may be sleeping less or more, isolation, being annoyed or thinking “is medication even necessery?” i

don’t isolate youself - this is a early symptom for me, before i get a psychotic episode, i often isolate myself and hate the world. that often lead to me being alone with my delusions and they get worse. so try to see friends often, especially when you have early signs. 

Auditory hallucinations

relax - voices are often caused by stress, so try to focus on your breathing.

distract yourself - focus on a task or watch tv.

ask your voices a question, that you dont know the answer to - if they dont know the answer the voices must be coming from within you.

background sounds - people have reported that listening to music or having the tv on sort of drowns the voices.

talk back to your voices - ask them to leave and say no if they order you to do things, remind yourself who’s in control.

know your triggers - it may help to keep a diary of when the voices are more active.

medication - modern anti-psychotics are 80-90% effective in revieling voices and will often make them disappear.

hum or sing - it drowns the voices as well as distract you.

read out loud - same with hum or sing

open your mouth really wide - i have no idea why or if this works, but you can try it! 

just a symptom - try to think of your voices as just a symptom, and not something that has a special meaning. after all, it’s just a random thought you can hear.


Visual hallucinations

this is quite a hard one, i haven’t experienced much visual hallucinations, so i don’t personally know what works and what doesn’t. and i don’t find much about it on internet. if you have any coping skills for visual hallucinations, let me know and i’ll include it! 

take a picture - if you’re unsure something is there you can try taking a picture 

turn away - or break eye contact, leave the room. if you don’t see it it’s not there 

shine on them  - if you see shadows you can try shining light on them from your phone flashlight 

medication - well, yeah, you get the idea. they work. 

five senses method -  acknowledge five things you can see; four things you can touch; three things you can hear; two things you can smell; one things you can taste. 

•  keep your pet near - if you have a pet it may help to tell you if something is real or not. if your pet doesn’t react you can assume it’s not real. 


Delusions

distraction - try to take your mind of it, even though it’s not that simple.

give them facts - checking facts and statistics may help

talk about them - in my case, the more i talked about my thoughts, the more unrealistic they seemed. That may not happen to everyone, but it is helpful to talk about them.

know your trigggers - delusions are also good to know when they’re more active.

medication - antipsychotis aren’t just helping for your hallucinations, but other symptoms as well - including delusions.


Disorganized speech

• count from one to three - start by thinking about (visualizing) the numbers in your head and focus on them before saying them aloud to align thought and speech centres of your brain.


Other symptoms 

trust me, i really wish i knew how to cope with the other symptoms. i don’t personally have much advice, and i can’t find much on internet, but if any of you know how to cope with these symptoms*, let me know and i’ll include it!

*some other symptoms are:

negative symtptoms - this could be not having energy, feeling indifferent towards things and gestures may decrease. 

catatonic behaviour - a bit more rare. it’s when the person stops moving and can be completely still for a long period of time. 

disorganized behaviour - appears as a decline in overall daily functioning, unpredictable or inappropriate emotional responses, behaviors that can appear bizarre and have no purpose, lack of impulse control. 

trouble thinking -  having too much thoughts or having slow thoughts

trouble functioning in social situations, isolation, trouble handling jobs or everyday chores. 


also, a big thank you to you guys who come with advice, you’re awesome 

We're autistic, we're human, get used to it

Some dehumanizing descriptions of autism are negative. For example, some people believe that we are incapable of love, or incapable of imagination, or incapable of understanding anything of importance.

Some dehumanizing descriptions of autism are positive. For instance, some people believe that we are incapable of lying, incapable of being manipulative, and that we always say exactly what we mean.

Autism doesn’t work that way. We are fully human, for better and for worse. We are fallible. We make communication mistakes. We don’t always know what we mean, and we don’t always express ourselves clearly. For instance, sometimes we say things that feel direct but that are actually very confusing. That’s human.

We are capable of treating others well, and we are capable of treating others badly. We are capable of caring about others, and we are capable of indifference. We are capable of being kind, and we are capable of being cruel.

Autism means having disabilities that can affect how we communicate, how we move, and how we understand things. Autism doesn’t make us better than other people, and it doesn’t make us worse. We’re not subhuman, and we’re not superhuman. We’re just people.

At university I learnt how proper preparation and rehearsal can make doing presentations a lot easier, they don’t need to be a big deal! I just wish my teenage self knew this…I can’t tell you how many projects I did last minute because I was nervous and didn’t want to think about presenting. 

Here’s some motivation to finally call back that place that’s hiring

To quit that job that’s tearing you down

To end a toxic relationship

To make the first move on someone you’ve been avoiding for weeks

To start something new after months of telling yourself you’re not ready

To treat yourself to that shopping spree

To call up an old friend and smile again

Today is the day to everything that you’ve ever procrastinated on. To achieve those goals that you never believed you could achieve. To push yourself to get that one thing done. You can do it. Don’t ever tell yourself you can’t ever again.

I’m rooting for you.

How to Adult: Cover Letter Edition

So I have several followers who are working on applying to jobs right now, and by far the most common concern is “what even is a cover letter??”  Now, while this post is funny and accurate, it’s not super helpful if you’re looking for specifics.  So I figured I should show you mine.  Now, without further ado, allow me to provide to you:

~*~ The Cover Letter of Destiny ~*~

[Name]
[Address Line 1]
[Address Line 2, etc]
[Phone]
[email]

[Right Justified - Date]  (This is just standard business letter stuff)

To Whom it May Concern, [Or Mr/Ms. Hiring Person’s name, if you can find it.] 

I’m delighted to submit an application for the [Job you’re applying to] position at [Company/Institution/etc].  After reading the job description I’m certain I would bring a solid combination of  [Skill 1], analytical thinking [or whatever Skill 2 is], and communication skills [This is always my Skill 3] to this position.  I’m particularly attracted to this position because I believe it will utilize the skills I have gained through my industry [or research or whatever] experience, and allow me to apply those skills in new areas. 

In my role with [Company] as a [Most Relevant Position Here], I managed a project [to do some stuff - flesh out your most important/relevant job responsibilities here].  I specifically focused on [a thing that is the most explicitly relevant to the job posting.  In fact, I creatively copy/pasted some of the job posting into this sentence, that’s how relevant it is.].  I was also responsible for [A couple of things that maybe were mentioned in the job posting, or at least show increased responsibility over time].  This gave me the opportunity to collaborate with a variety of different team members [to achieve a goal]. Through these and other job duties, I have gained excellent listening skills and the ability to carry out self-directed tasks in the context of a larger team. [i’m not joking. use this phrasing it’s so great just copy it idgaf]

 In my current role as a [Current Title] with [Company], I have continued to build strong skills in project management [or whatever] as well as clear oral and written communication. [Maybe this sentence describes the types of communication (or whatever skill) you do.]   [This sentence describes briefly the less-relevant work you do].  [This sentence ties in your less-relevant job to the job you are seeking].  These experiences have prepared me well to succeed in a role as [Name of Position you’re applying to].

Thank you for taking the time to review my materials and consider my application. I am excited at the prospect of applying my skills to a [Name or category of position] with [Company], and I feel that the knowledge and skills I have gained through my experience will be a great benefit to the team. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions as I would welcome a chance to discuss this opportunity more. [After all, they want to hire you after reading this]

Regards,

 [First Name Last Name]

I hope you find this helpful in your job search!  Just remember to focus on skills you learned rather than specific experiences or titles you’ve had.  Don’t be afraid of inflating it too far, either.  There are real useful skills underlying every job task if you look hard & get creative with your phrasing. 

Feel free to send me an ask if you want any specific advice on how to spin your education/work history into the job you want, or if you want a proofreader or cheerleader or whatever.  Job hunting is a bad game designed by and for a certain type of person.  It’s dehumanizing and horrible even at the best of times, so I’m more than happy to help anyone find a way to beat the system.  <3 <3 

A/N: I got this template from chantenyongs and I could not find the original creator to give proper credit to.

A = Aftercare

After your wild ride he’ll retreat to his soft and caring side from being the literal beast with you just two minutes ago. He’ll pull you into his arms while still trying to catch his breath and brush his fingers through your hair and placing kisses on your forehead. Damn you’re lucky and so is he yikes.

B = Body part (Their favorite body part of theirs and also their partner’s)

He loves your boobs as rude as it sounds, he seriously means it both sexually and innocently. Meaning if there’s gonna be some bed creaking then he’ll immediately place hickies on your chest and have them trail up to your jaw, but if you guys are just watching a movie and cuddling your breasts become his pillow and he won’t even ask he’ll just do it. And of course his favorite tool of his own is his tongue because he sends you to Hong Kong with his tongue technology.

C = Cum

Suga would really love it if he came in your mouth and some of it dripped down your chin so you had to lick it to clean your mess up. Even better if you went back for more.

D = Dirty Secret (a dirty secret of theirs)

He has secret recordings of you masturbating when you thought he wasn’t home. It all started when he texted you a little white lie about being home after midnight when he was at your doorstep at 11:45. You thought you had some time and began to pleasure yourself so when Yoongi went to your bedroom to surprise you he saw what you were doing through the crack of your door. He took about a three minute long video before the hard on in his pants was becoming too much to handle and he burst into your room and boy was that night fun.

E = Experience (How experienced are they? Do they know what they’re doing?)

He definitely knows what he’s doing, as one of the older members I can bet my college tuition that he’s had a few one night stands in his life and went through trial and error to master the techniques he’s learned. Maybe as a gag gift he bought himself a sex position book he looks through when he wants to do something new with you.

F = Favorite position

This has probably been established in a smut I read not to long ago but Yoongi would not only change positions up every so often but nearly every time you guys have sex he has to do the 69 position at least once before you guys are tapped out for the evening.

G = Goofy (Are they more serious in the moment, or are they humorous, etc)

Yoongi doesn’t joke around much in real life, the occasional chuckle when you’re being cute or the lovely smile he shines only at you and music being his norm. Sex would be no different. No puns or stupid dad jokes Jin taught you are to be used when the clothes are removed.

H = Hair (How well groomed are they)

He’s so chill about the little things that he doesn’t even pay attention to it so if his hair bothers you you’ll have to talk to him about it at some point. He might consider shaving if it really is a problem for you.

I = Intimacy (How are they during the moment, romantic aspect…)

He’s not really a romantic type of guy unless you two had a fight one day and were on the verge of breaking up. Make up sex would be hella cute, he’d take his time to make sure you reach maximum pleasure and would remember to praise you every other second. On normal days it’s just rough animal sex because two hot people plus raging hormones equals so much lust for the two of you.

J = Jack Off (Masturbation)

Why can’t he? If you aren’t around to do it for him he’ll take matters into his own hands and use those secret videos I mentioned earlier to help him along the way.

K = Kink (One or more of their kinks)

Having sex during work hours or in the studio while he’s working. This is something he won’t necessarily do but he loves it when you know just when he’s had too much going on and you walk in on him testing out lyrics with new beats for some much needed stress relief. When you guys are done he’ll quickly pack up his things and call it a night for working, leaving the rest of the dark hours for you being all to himself.

L = Location (Favorite places to do the do)

^^^^The studio^^^^

M = Motivation (What turns them on, gets them going)

Obviously it’s you that turn him on but if you’re being adorable or if he thinks of you acting cute he won’t get hard. Yet when his thoughts wonder and picture you showering, naked, etc. he’ll get a boner real quick and he’s all cocky as hell and like¯\_(ツ)_/¯ “Guess I gotta get some, come here babe!”

N = NO (Something they wouldn’t do, turn offs)

Despite his love for music he wouldn’t bring any into the bedroom. 1) It might distract him 2) He’ll get off topic and start thinking about a new beat he thought of while listening to the song

O = Oral (Preference in giving or receiving, skill, etc)

69 position, remember? That way you’re both getting tongued down tonight.

P = Pace (Are they fast and rough? Slow and sensual? etc.)

He’s ROUGH. Like he’ll growl by accident when he sees how you’re reacting to his current speed, being a moaning mess for him.

Q = Quickie (Their opinions on quickies rather than proper sex, how often, etc.)

Sex with him might be quick as it is because of how fast he goes but since one round is never enough he’ll take quickies very slowly to make it last so that way one round is better than wanting more but not having time to.

R = Risk (Are they game to experiment, do they take risks, etc.)

He wouldn’t like having sex knowing people can walk in i.e a public place where children or elderly may be nearby but sex in studio and in the BTS dorm is good for him. If people walk in at least they know you’re his and that they should knock next time. As for experimentation he might slowly introduce new things to know, making sure they aren’t too much for you to handle.

S = Stamina (How many rounds can they go for, how long do they last…)

He’s an animal so he won’t stop until he’s near the point of exhaustion, that would also depend on the kind of day he had. If that particular day was full of dance rehearsal then like three rounds, but if he had a semi easy day at work expect you guys to go at it for the whole damn night. He might even call in sick the next day to spend time with you.

T = Toy (Do they own toys? Do they use them? On a partner or themselves?)

He’s got the generic stuff, as well as some other hard core things he hasn’t shown you yet. So far you’ve had vibrators, robe, and gags used on you. Not yet has he brought in his whips, chokers, etc.

U = Unfair (how much they like to tease)

He wants to get down to business so he’ll only tease if you’ve misbehaved if you know what I mean.

V = Volume (How loud they are, what sounds they make)

Dogs bark and the whole town gets woken up because of Yoongi’s growls mixing in with your groans. Seriously you guys are so loud and yeah it does make you embarrassed but Yoongi’s highly proud of himself.

W = Wild Card (Get a random headcanon for the character of your choice)

Yoongi is crazy for breasts fucking. No matter how big or small your chest is he just loves having his cock in between your breasts and even slapping it against them when he has already came just to see the little strings of his cum stick to him. He’s a kinky mother fucker.

X = X-Ray (Let’s see what’s going on in those pants, picture or words)

UUUMMMMMMMM DOES BS&T LIVE PERFORMANCE IN PINK SILK PAJAMAS RING A BELL YOU’RE LUCKY I COULDN’T FIND A GIF AT THIS MOMENT BECAUSE HONEYYY

Y = Yearning (How high is their sex drive?)

What’s the distance between the Sun and Pluto (THE FUCKING PLANET BTW YES PLUTO IS A PLANET SQUARE ROOT MOTHER FUCKER) again? I’m pretty sure it’s like half of Yoongi’s sex drive.

Z = ZZZ (… how quickly they fall asleep afterwards)

He sleeps a lot but he feels bad if he just leaves you hanging so he tries to stay up for some pillow talk but ends up passing out in the middle of one of your stories.

~Blake

I was touching on this headcanon in fanfiction form earlier but I want to make a regular textpost explaining it.

It occurred to me earlier how it’s a bit unusual that Bakugou’s never burnt himself with his own quirk. Canon explains that his palms have very thick skin that doesn’t burn easily, but considering explosions tend to—ya know—explode, it’s still a bit surprising he’s never burnt any other part of his body.

This got me thinking in a couple different directions. Perhaps Bakugou’s trained himself to carefully position his body and limit his firepower so as not to injure himself. Maybe when he was younger and stupider, experimenting with the limit of his powers, he did burn himself badly and has been keeping himself below that threshold ever since so as not to burn himself ever again.

This was all sitting in “casual headcanon” territory until I realized something that makes it all so, so much more complicated.

And that’s Deku.

Because Deku has done the opposite. Deku was incapable of moderating his quirk for so long. He was harnessing incredible power, and yet leading his body to ruin in order to do it.

And all the while Bakugou’s been trying to figure out how Deku managed to surpass him.

Deku’s quirk is stronger than his, because Deku doesn’t hold back. Deku gets himself injured when Bakugou doesn’t. Bakugou’s ability to safely moderate his quirk looks like a positive skill until you throw Deku into the mix, and then try to figure out why Bakugou’s losing.

Bakugou’s reaction in episode 7 stands out to me, when Deku explains the severe drawbacks of his quirk. Bakugou looks just, shocked, devastated, like his world’s been shaken.

Maybe it’s because he just witnessed Deku do what he can never push himself to do: injure himself for the sake of incredible power.

I’m not putting much stock in this being something canon ever addresses. More like it’s something I find fascinating to think about in the context of Bakugou’s character. It would torment him to know he can perform at a level far above his current max output if he just embraced the physical backlash. Maybe he can’t make himself do it, the same way you can’t force yourself to bite off your finger despite having the jaw-strength for it. Like it’s a deeply ingrained, instinctual limit. The kind of thing that would take horrifying amounts of willpower to overcome.

But Bakugou has seen Deku be endlessly rewarded for pushing past this limit every time. Bodily injury seems to be working in Deku’s favor, and Bakugou’s only getting more and more desperate to surpass him.

It leads me to envision a high-stakes battle, one the villains are steadily winning, that ends with a single enormous explosion wiping out the villain side entirely. And it leaves Bakugou at the center with third degree burns covering half his body, blinking through tears and yelling “What? Did you think Deku was the only one who could do this!?”

Happy Father’s Day to those who’s fathers have passed away

Happy Father’s Day to those who’s fathers are incarcerated

Happy Father’s Day to those who have never met their fathers

Happy Father’s Day to those who’s fathers are in the hospital

Happy Father’s Day to those who’s fathers are currently serving our country

But please respectfully remember that some people don’t talk to their fathers

Some people have been abandoned by their fathers

Some people have been horribly abused by their fathers

Some people have no desire to even think of their father on this day, or any day

Please don’t inappropriately ask someone about their father today. Don’t push them to explain their relationship with their possibly estranged father. Don’t badger them with, “But he’s your dad! You have to talk to him on Father’s Day” This holiday is to celebrate Fathers/father figures who are worthy of celebrating. It is your choice as to whether or not you recognize this day. Please remember that and respect others’ situations.

Positive Coping Strategies ☀️ ((TW))

- Breathe in through your nose for a count of 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds, deep exhale for 8 seconds. Repeat 3 more times (4 in total). This is known to help relax your body during panic attacks or just very stressful situations

- ART!!! Even if you think you suck! Painting, drawing, doodling, colouring etc. works wonders for relieving stress/ symptoms of anxiety and other mental illnesses

- Take a walk outside in a forest or a place with a lot of green and pretty colours. Putting your phone down for even half an hour and really just taking in your surroundings can help relieve stress, etc.

- Have a bath, put some music in, and just focus on you 💗

- Sit down and write a list of things you’re thankful for and things you hope to accomplish. This can be very helpful during those times when you’re feeling hopeless

Most importantly PLEASE try not to develop negative coping mechanisms. Binge eating and crying is okay every once in a while but if it becomes a regular occurrence then maybe you should try switching it up. Just remember that it’s okay for you to not be happy all the time, but you have to learn how to love yourself in order to find happiness for yourself 💗 You’re going to be okay and your future is bright ✨ Just don’t give up

Kingdom of  "The Fairy King"

“Dame,” said this Pluto, “be no longer wroth;
I give it up; but since I swore my oath
That I would give to him his sight again,
My word shall stand, I warn you that’s certain.
I am a king, it suits me not to lie.”

The Merchant’s Tale


Pluto in the 1st House: The Dais of Shadows. When positioned in the house of the Self, he designs powerful, magnetic individuals. While they are more of the loner type, they come as very intimidating and knowledgeable. Persons with Pluto in this house have a domineering, almost unbearable stare that mirrors perfectly their strong will power.

Pluto in the 2nd House: The Key Tower. These persons feel comfortable with using resources or talents that other might consider taboo or odd. They have a terrific dislike for helplessness, and even if they have a pathological desire to gather as many belongings as possible, second house Plutonian natives are willing to sacrifice anything needed to keep something or someone dear to them safe from harm.

Pluto in the 3rd House: Garden of Words and Swords. These individuals have something especially tremendous about their speech, even from a young age. They can be very persuasive, and know how and when to use their self-taught and dangerous knowledge to be in advantage. These persons might despise authority or any form of academical education, but they are at the same time in an endless hunt for information.

Pluto in the 4th House: Chamber of Memories. Even if their childhood was peaceful and stress-free, the fourth house Pluto natives have a hard time exposing their past. The mother will play a major and influential role in their lives, even becoming a little bit too controlling. They might go through patriotic or identity crisis as a member of their family. However, if they know how to embrace their dark side in a beneficial way, they have great potential to become inspiring public figures.

Pluto in the 5th House: The Royal Amphitheatre. Although these individuals can overindulge themselves in obsessive behaviors, they are very likely to get bored of their current interest and start searching for a new one. They usually get what they want, but not without encountering some obstacles on the way. They are passionate and intense, never scared to enter a new power game or something that can keep them entertained.

Pluto in the 6th House: The Hidden Sanctum. Despite the activities associated to this house, Pluto makes these natives to be generally repulsed by any kind of servitude acts towards others. They get involved in all kind of unconventional or obscure jobs. Therefore, they tend to keep their activities a secret and share them only if it’s completely necessary. 

Pluto in the 7th House: The Masquerade Ballroom. Seventh house Plutonian natives get easily suspicious or jealous regarding their relationships. They want to have their partnership under control, and when feeling threatened, they will do their best to prevent the attack. Good aspects will help them have a fulfilling and long lasting marriage or relationship with their loved ones.

Pluto in the 8th House: The Dormitory Arena. These individuals have a remarkable affinity for occult and energy manipulation. They emanate high sex drive, and are also very attractive in this regard. They obsessively desire intimacy, and are driven to manifest it through unusual and unorthodox ways. However, they seem to attract the same kind, and the outcome of this impact is paranoia or violent reactions (not necessarily physical).

Pluto in the 9th House: The Upstairs Catacombs. These native must be very careful when expressing their beliefs, so that they do not become religious fanatics, determined to impose their truths on others. This placement is an ego boost, and it gives the individual the required self-confidence to share their discoveries with the rest of the world.

Pluto in the 10th House: The Knife-Edged Throne. Severe, respected and intense, these individuals are usually weighty figures in their entourage, and have lots of expectations to live up to. They climb their way to the top by allying themselves with other influential people even from the day they were born. But one must be aware that all this power can easily turn someone into a corrupt individual. They shouldn’t forget those that helped them to rise and accomplish all they have.

Pluto in the 11th House: Strategy Room. This placement tends to offer their owners great partnership skills and mighty positions in their group. They attract powerful people that can help them reach their goals behind the scenes, just like they prefer things to be done. One bad effect is the possibility to abuse of their ability to manipulate the masses, and use it just for personal gain.

Pluto in the 12th House: The King’s Mind. Having Pluto’s secretive nature fused with the discretion and cryptic waves of the twelfth house makes one be very reluctant to show their real feelings and intentions. They have several fantasies since their childhood, which can influence them in a bad or good way. It’s nearly impossible to tell on which side they do stand, as just a few people know their true faith.
