the referral

I just ordered some shampoo which doesn’t sound that exciting but there’s a new website that lets you take a “hair quiz” and you tell them all about your hair (type, structure, how oily it is, what your hair goals are) and their chemists will make a shampoo for you (you even get to pick the color!) Anyways, it’s functionofbeauty.com and if you want $5 your order (and their shipping is free) you can use this referral link:  functionofbeauty.com/?ref=58db3f7d2b84f

I broke down in front of my mum on the weekend. I ended up saying some stupid things I'd been thinking about and that included some talk about suicide. Yesterday we went to the doctor to get a referral to a psychiatrist and tomorrow I'm seeing him. Mum wants to get antidepressants for me. I need to talk to someone but I feel like my friends and family would just do the pity thing and pat me on the back and send me off with a "well there's nothing I can do" and I don't know who to turn to anymore

First of all, I want you to know that anything you think or feel is not and never is stupid. You are important and everything you say is worth listening to. It sounds like your parents are concerned and just want to help you, which is understandable for any parent who loves their child. Remember they are doing this with the best intentions of what they feel is best for you.

I know you need someone to talk to, so I do believe seeing a professional is the best decision for you. They are there to listen and to help you get through this, that is, if you let them.
Another important thing is you don’t have to take medication if you don’t want to. That’s completely up for you to decide. It’s your choice. (If they start forcing you, demand a different psychiatrist)
So even saying that, taking medication is not a bad thing and could help you immensely. I’ve taken antidepressants when I needed them and there is no shame in doing so. Sometimes there are certain points in your life when you need help, and it’s okay to ask for it. Your mental health is the most important.

I know things are tough right now but I promise you things will get better and you’re going to be okay. Just hang in there ✨

my employer is currently looking for more people to start training on May 8th and there’s a $300 referral bonus in it for dis broke bitch soooooo if you’re an interested biologist who wants to work as a west coast fisheries observer, pm me for details and I’ll try to hook you up 🐠👌🏻✨

Referral

“I must say I’ve never seen a candidate for the job with such an interesting referral.”

“Thank you.”

“I mean the referral itself is pretty standard, but the referrer!”

“Yeah.”

“How did you get Osama bin Laden to write you a referral?”

“Honestly, 10 years ago I got kinda drunk and figured ‘Why not just ask?’ I sent an email to OsamaBinLaden@hotmail.com and luckily that was him and he was like ‘Since you asked, why not?’ I told him a little about myself and he wrote it up.”

“Wow. Still talk with him?”

“No. I think he’s dead.”

“Oh yeah? Probably died in 2016. That year killed everyone! Ha ha.”

“Yeah. Should’ve been called 20 RIPteen. Ha ha. Instead of SIXteen.”

“What was that? I missed all of what you just said. I was checking on my tax return.”

“Is it looking good?”

“No. I forgot to file. I was hoping they’d forget to not give me a return. Dang IRS, am I right? Ha Ha.”

“Yeah. Should call those guys the IR-BAD. Ha ha.”

“My wife works for the IRS, buddy.”

“Sorry.”

“It’s okay. She’s actually my ex-wife and she actually works for
GoDaddy.”

“Danica Patrick?”

“Nope, but close. So, Frank, with your resume and a top-notch Al-Qaeda referral I think it’s safe to say you’ve got the job. Welcome to Sun Chips!”

“Amazing! Thank you! One small question.”

“Let me guess, you want to meet the Sun? Ha ha!”

“Yes.”

“Then grab your coat.”

“I didn’t bring one.”

“Then grab mine!”

“You didn’t bring yours.”

“We’ll meet the Sun tomorrow.”

That raises a good question: If gunshot wounds are equally lethal all across the body, why are military personnel instructed to aim for the chest or head? Or is that another myth?

I didn’t say that all gunshot wounds are equally lethal. My point was that all gunshot wounds have the potential to be life threatening. A bullet to the heart and a bullet to the pinky have very different odds ratios of killing the victim, but either can be deadly.

Military personnel are aimed to shoot for the chest because it’s the largest area to aim for, easiest to hit, slowest to move, and has the highest likelihood (outside the head) of disabling or killing your opponent. Police are trained this way, military are trained this way, and they do so because it works.

Headshots are very difficult to pull off, because the head can move and is much smaller than the chest. However, they are almost universally either lethal or permanently disabling.

Percy proposes to Annabeth at the camp sing-a-long when the two sang ‘Wouldn’t Change a Thing’

At the end of the song he got down on one knee and goes “Well I lied. I’d change one thing. Annabeth Chase, will you do me the pleasure of being my one and only Mrs. Chase-Jackson?”

6153. All Superheroes are considered an extension of the military of the hero's country of origin. While none of the Titans will ever be called to serve in a "war" as we know it, they are all still eligible for veteran's benefits. Raven has found this extremely useful, as she has managed to find a specialized therapist who can help her cope with her various emotional issues.

You must get lots of asks about how to knock someone out without brain damage, but I'm looking for the exact opposite. Do you know if a bash on the bonce (leading to 30mins-1hr unconsciousness) could lead to brain damage that impairs a character's reading ability? Thanks!

Absolutely. A TBI (traumatic brain injury) can cause swelling that can damage cognition and reading comprehension. Also TBI sufferers tend to get headaches, and can have blurred vision or other visual disturbances. Attention spans tend to shorten during recovery, and they tend to become more irritable, so reading may be possible but they might not be able to sustain it for long.

All of this is neurological, not personal, but it’s still important to realize. It’s also important to remember that reading comprehension won’t be the only thing that changes; there are lots of other changes too.

I suggest checking the head injury and TBI tags, checking out my friend @towertumblng​‘s blog to look at the effects of even minor TBIs, and checking brainline.org for more info.

Best of luck!

rynfinity replied to your post: Goin’ to the hospital today (this time Joondalup)…

i feel the same way in the MRI. does the medication help?

@rynfinity actually surprisingly, yes it did. I mean I’d probably opt for full sedation for full-body MRIs just for the sheer length of them; but the Temazepam worked pretty well.

I was sort of on the edge of panic a few times, but I was able to talk myself down from it with breathing exercises and so on. Which is still better than how jittery/teary I can get without it (it doesn’t always happen? But enough that it’s as much a fear as the MRI itself).

I know most people tend to take Diazepam as a sedative/relaxant, but that makes me nauseous, so I asked specifically for the Temazepam because it’s been given to me as a pre-surgery med before with some success. Also, it doesn’t make you so sleepy etc. that you can’t function or anything. They do recommend you don’t drive yourself home alone though. <3

What kind of flowers would a character give to someone they hate? Like in a "I'm very polite and anxious so I won't tell you outright how much you annoy me and that I hate you so here's a bunch of flowers that really mean I want you dead :)" kind of way

Hi Nonny. 

Well, I’m not really sure that there are any that I can add on based on flower language. But here are to convey a feeling of “I hope you die” and here is Mod Jana’s post about ways to convey contempt and extreme dislike.  I hope some of those will work for your character.

Okay, but what about induced amnesia (brainwashing)? It worked well on The Winter Soldier from Captain America, especially because some of what was the character was still ingrained in his mind. What are your thoughts on this?

“Brainwashing” is a topic for @scriptshrink and possibly @scriptbrainscientist, not for me. The line between medicine, neuroscience and psychology can get a bit blurry, but I’m not qualified to answer brainwashing questions.

Sorry nonny!

I was wondering how negligent and abusive parents affects children as they grow up like my characters has it pretty rough as his mother has locked him in dark rooms as punishment for often nothing(e.g. Closets), does not feed him at times, and locked him in their house, never letting him leave for anything, even school and his father left his mother because of her actions, leaving him behind. He's nineteen now and has escaped that household but how does it follow him now?Thank you for the help!

Please refer to @scriptshrink for this ask. If you decide your character may have PTSD, consider checking out this post [Link] for information on how that may effect his day-to-day living. If you have further questions we can help with, give us a shout!
