She likes to sleep with the fan on, mostly because the noise helps her fall asleep. Even if it is freezing outside with a wind chill, let her keep the fan on. She will sleep good.
She will want to hold your hand a lot in public. Even if you are afraid of the looks and the whispers, let her hold your hand. It makes her happy.
Sometimes she will eat ice cream for breakfast and sometimes she will come upstairs at 10pm with waffles for the both of you. Even if you aren’t hungry, eat what she made for you.
When she’s laying on your arm and it falls asleep, don’t wake her up. She loves her sleep. Just take this time to look at how peaceful she is.
Bring her gifts. Not the kind of gifts you have to go out and buy. Write her something, draw her something. She knows it’s the thought that counts and she will love it no matter what it is.
She will have bad days. She will have days where she shuts down and might not even want to talk to you. This will hurt you. Find her, bring her a bottle of water and sit next to her. Don’t ask her what’s wrong, she won’t want to talk about it. It will pass, and she will be glad you stuck through it with her.
She wakes up at 6am for work. She will set her alarm at night. Make sure you set one too. Just incase
She will turn on the tv and ask you what you want to watch. Don’t say “I don’t know” or “I don’t care”. Pick something for the both of you to watch. She won care what it is, she’s happy just to be watching it with you.
She is beautiful, but some days she does not see it. You will be able to tell when it’s happening. When it does, offer to straighten her hair. She likes the way it looks when it’s like that.
Some nights she will just want to stay in, watch tv and color. Ask if you can color a page too.
She likes to take a lot of pictures with you, and of you. Don’t put your hand in front of the camera to reject. Let her take pictures of you, she will look at them when you’re not around and she misses you.
She likes to wear your clothes. You will look at your half empty closet and wonder where it all went. Let her wear them, your scent will remind her of you.
When she thinks about giving up on you, fight. Fight until you are black and blue inside. Fight for the memories and the future to come. Fight harder than I could’ve.
Love her. Love her when it’s raining and love her when it’s sunny. Love every little piece of her. Lay your head on her chest and hear the heart that beats for you. Love her smile. Love her frown. Love everything in between. If you love her with your whole entire heart, I promise you that’s only half as much as I did. Never stop loving her.
About a month ago I was lying to the world about having had stage four cancer. And now I stand before you outed, and victorious. But it’s not just my benchmark. This is for that little boy in West Virginia who changes his name simply because he feels compelled to. And that mom in Dallas who says she has three sisters, when really she just doesn’t. Let’s give a voice to the many complicated liars out there. Who’s with me?
It’s a show based in a dystopian future Brazil, with SOME elements of hunger games but it’s unique in its story. Great acting and really diverse cast and by then end your fave will probably be the black chick in the main character circle!
I was pleasantly surprised by it and I need a 2nd season so y'all watch the fuck out of it.
Request: Can i request something like hm… Woozi and his baby daughter alone for the first time?
Eunha pounded on the table of her high chair as her tired father took a seat at the table beside her. She looked at him carefully as he sighed leaning back more. “I have a doctors appointment today” you told Jihoon who nodded “you’re watching your daughter then” you say as you stoked his head. He stopped and turned towards you “what?” he asked “I can’t take her to a place filled with sick people. Its one day. Try bonding with her for once” you tell him.
“I have” he says “no. You have basically watched her for a bit while I showered” you correct him as you packed up your bag. “You need to be a more active father” you tell him “I make money and work all day” he tells you. “I make money and work most of the day then come home and take care of the child you wanted to have 9 months ago. So for one gosh darn day, you’re going to take care of her” you say in a calm yet threatening tone. “Yes ma’am” he spoke as you were hovering over him a bit and you placed a plate in front of him “thank you baby” you say pressing a kiss onto his cheek before taking a seat beside Eunha and began feeding her.
Jihoon walked into the living room after getting a drink to see that Eunha was bouncing away in her seat watching the colorful TV show. “This can’t be hard” he spoke as he took a seat on the couch. Eunha stopped and turned the chair to face him “go back to your cartoons” he told her waving her off as she simply blinked and let out a light whine. “What why are you sad?” he asked her as she let out another whine. Soon she let out a cry “no” he said panicked as she continued to cry before he got up. “You don’t need to do that” he told her as she continued to cry.
He bent down and picked her up out of it as she dangled in his arms “can you stop?” he asked her before he brought her close to him. She instantly stopped crying as she was held close. “You wanted me to hold you close?” he asked her as she pulled back a little and smiled before her forehead leaned onto his lips. “Do you do this with your mother?” he asked her as she cuddled into him more, her hard head slamming into his shoulder lightly. “If you be this easy I think we’ll have a good day” he told her as she sighed. He leaned his head onto her’s as he began bouncing “you’ll sleep then right? If I do this?” he asked her as he continued to bounce and began to rub her back “I think you will” he hummed. A smile came to his face as he knew he was going to do his best to understand the baby in his arms.
She let out many sounds as she chewed on the strawberry in the feeder pacifier. “I really didn’t think frozen fruit was this fun but I guess if I was little I would like it too” he then comments. He put her hair up in a tiny ponytail as she tried to look up at him. “Just eat and let daddy worry about your appearance” he tells her as she made a sound and did as said. “Do you eat all day and make sounds?” he asks as she continued chewing on it. “Sounds like a good life. I do the same when I’m producing a song” he tells her as he sits on the floor in front of her “it’s nice, your mother usually gets mad when I grunt at her but you get away with it” he continues. He knew the conversation was one sided but he didn’t really care. He was just happy to know she was doing alright with him there instead of you. As he continued a foot pressed against his mouth as she basically told him to shut up “I’m sorry I’m ruining strawberry time” he mumbles as he turns the channel to another kids show.
I am looking for someone to practice French with! I studied French in
school for 5 years and i want to continue learning the language in
college. I plan on going to school for nursing. I love all types of
music, cooking, watching tv, and color guard. I’m super girly and love
doing hair and makeup. I absolutely love animals and about to start a
vegetarian lifestyle change in June.
Preferences: I would prefer someone who speaks French
as a first language and is 15-25! Even better if you’re from Québec or
Montréal since I am very interested in moving there!
Gender/Race/Sexuality does not matter, just don’t be a mean person !
Ten was starting to get irritated. That was the seventh victim he couldn’t get to talk.
Where the hell did they get these men from, and how did they train them?
He could definitely use some of his own. After all, that’s what started this whole issue.
He never wanted this life: Ten was the leader of his dance team only three years ago, and now he was the leader of the most powerful mafia. Why, you ask?
Because someone had assassinated his father, and then the responsibility fell on him. He couldn’t let his sister take after their father. Not this.
So he dropped out of university as his father’s best friend trained him in combat. He showed him everything he needed to know, introduced him to everyone he needed to meet, and just like that, he had gone too deep to be able to back out anymore.
Request from: @grumpycheshirecat Prompt: “The carnival’s in town!” Warnings: Cute fluff for the soul. A/N: It’s taken me so long to get this written, and I am so sorry. Life sucks; that’s the only excuse I can use. It’s a bit shorter than I was expecting/planning, but again, life is rude and I kinda lost this story a few times so I forgot a lot of what I was going to implement and this is different, but I think it’s good. I hope you enjoy!
You’re just finishing up cleaning the dishes when your husband comes through the door, placing a kiss to your temple and wrapping his arms around you. His actions sluggish from Nightwing’s extra busy schedule last night.
“You let me sleep in,” Dick says, his voice husky with sleep.
“You seemed like you could use it,” You easily reply, and he sighs in content when you turn and peck his cheek. “The sun was rising when you got home.”
“And what were you doing awake so late?”
You roll your eyes, “I wasn’t awake until I felt a weight flop onto the bed next to me.” You pause for a second to glance at him, “Stop. I know that look, you don’t need to feel guilty, I fell back asleep pretty quickly.”
He hums, looking at the clock. “I’m surprised I stayed asleep for so long. Is Johnny at school or something?”
“It’s summer, hun.”
It was kind of ironic how your little boy decided to come in at that moment. With an excited squeal of: “papa!” he runs over and leaps into Dick’s arms. Laughter fills the room as he’s thrown into the air and caught.
“Mama said we had to be quiet so you could get more sleep,” He says. “So we colored and watched TV!”
Dick gasps, “You watched cartoons without me?” He pouts dramatically when your son nods.
“Yeah, because you were sleepin’! I saved you some coloring pages though!” Johnny squirms out of your husband’s grasp in order to run and get the pieces of paper.
Dick turns to you once he’s out of earshot. “Okay, so who did you sell your soul to in order to keep Johnny quiet, and how do we get it back?”
You snort, and smack him playfully on the shoulder. “You know, Johnny is fully capable of being a perfectly calm and collected person when you’re not there to stir him all up with adrenaline.”
“I have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about, whatsoever.”
He says, forcing a serious expression on his face.
At your raised eyebrow, he grins innocently. “Alright, so I have the tendency to get him a little hyped up and playful, what’s the harm in that?”
“Most of the time, there isn’t a problem with it. You just have trouble figuring out when it is a problem. It’s fine that you get him all energized and excited in the day. However, when it’s way past his bedtime it gets a little frustrating when he’d much rather show me different tricks you taught him not even a full five minutes ago, Dick.”
You almost scoff when the man lets out a small sigh of relief when Johnny reappears. The boy excitedly hands the sheets of printed paper over, along with a box of crayons. Though, judging by how he keeps hopping from one foot to the other, you feel it’s safe to say he’s more excited about something else that must have come up.
“Something you want to tell us, Johnny?” You ask.
“The carnival’s in town!” He blurts out, revealing the newspaper he was hiding behind his back. “Can we go, please?”
You take a breath in order to prepare yourself, and look away from your son’s pleading face only to see your husband’s sparkling puppy dog eyes. Of course. You expected no less from these two.
You sigh. “Well, we don’t have anything major planned, so I guess-”
Both of them whoop in victory, and Dick picks up Johnny so they can high five each other. They each give you a kiss on the cheek with a quick ‘thank you’, before they’re both off to go and get ready.
You can’t help but smile when you hear their excited chatter throughout your small home, “Like father like son.”
URGENT: Help my parents want me to go to the hospital bc im feeling suicidal im so scared and i dont know how its gonna go and being trans makes it more scary, i live in the US if thats important
Hey there, im sorry youre feeling so bad. Going to the hospital is a really good idea if youre suicidal. I know its scary, but it really can help keep you safe. You can learn coping skills and find vakuabke resources for you and your family.
In the past year ive been in a psychiatric hospital 3 different times (1 hospital the first 2, another one for the 3rd) so Ive been where you are. The first time I stayed 7 days, the second time I stayed 6 days, and the third time it was 8 days. Obviously things can differ state to state but im gonna give you the general protocol of things to make it a little less scary. Going to the hospital (all 3 times) was the best choice i could’ve made tbh. Im gonna give you the whole process. All of it may not apply to you depending on what the doctors say, but ill put it here anyway just in case
First you go to the ER. They will give you a bracelet with you name on it which can be dysphoria inducing if your name isnt legally changed. Sometimes it will also have your legal gender on it too. They will do intake (ask why youre there, blood pressure, weight, pulse) and then youll wait to be called. They may have a security guard sit near you if youre not with your parents (they might do that anyway though).
After this they will take you to a crisis unit. This may be called a Behavioral Health Unit instead of crisis, its the same thing. Here they will have you give them everything you have (cellphone, headphones, shoes, wallet, etc). They may also take your jewlery. Some places also will have you change into scrubs and they will take your clothes. They will have you change in a room but someone will likely need to watch you change in the room or they will look through a 2 way mirror. In this process they might also take your binder. The first time I explained why i needed to keep it and i cried a lot and begged. The next time i told them i will not take it off. The third time they didnt ask. They will also scan your body with a metal detector wand and possibly give you a patdown. If you are packing, they will have you remove it. I suggest not packing when you go to the ER.
They will bring you to a room that has a bed and walls. There also may be a door on the room, but no lock. Sometimes a bathroom is also attached to the room. You can usualy have a pillow and blanket. They may bring chairs in if your parents are allowed to stay with you (some places dont allow parents past a certian hour). They also can give you water and some food here of you ask (sometimes they will automatically offer if its a meal time). Here you will usually be asked to give a urine sample and they sometimes draw blood. There also may be a phone that you can use to make calls, so be sure to know peoples numbers.
Youll meet with a psychiatrist who will evaluate you. Expect questions about wanting to die or harm yourself, about hallucinations, about your mental health history, any medications youre on, and about being trans. The psychiatrist will then determine whether you are a threat to yourself or others. If you are, they will want to admit you. Depending on your insurance and where you live, you might get to pick which facility you go to. It is A LOT easier to consent to being admitted as a voluntary patient than it is to be involuntary (involuntary patients are forced to be there by court order). You will then be transported by ambulance to the psychiatric hospital. The psych hospital may be in the same building as the regular hospital, and in that case they will transport you by stretcher.
(Your parents may or may not be present for this depending on where you go) Once you arrive at the psych hospital, youll do intake again. They will take vitals and ask you a million questions about how youre feeling and what your history is. You may get misgendered a lot here. Correct them and be consistent even though its scary. You might also get a tour of the floor and have some thing explained to you. It will help in the long run. Because youre trans, the rooming situation might be weird. The first 2 times i was at a hospital that wasnt educated about trans stuff so i was forced into a single room because i was apparently a sexual predator bc im trans. The third time i was at a different hospital and they were a lot better. There i had a trans roommate, a girl, and a guy (we all kept switching rooms).
In the hospital, you might be one on one supervision until they decide you arent gonna harm yourself or others. Hospitals have a psychiatric nursing staff, psychiatrist, and different kinds of therapists and counselors. Youll probably have group therapy, one on one meeting with the doctor, family therapy or meetings, group activities like games or movies, coping skill groups, etc. You may also have school built into the schedule, where you can get work from your school sent to you or dropped off. (Nothing online, no computers). A theraputic teacher will be there to supervise and they may give assignments as well. Youll also have some free time to journal or watch tv or color. Your floor might also go outside. Meals are either in the cafeteria or on your unit. It depnds where you are and how safe you are. All of this really depends on where you are though. Your parents can also come visit and possibly friends or teachers or religious leaders. You can also make phone calls. Who is allowed to visit/call depends on the facility. They will keep you at the hospital until you are safe enough to go home. They will most likely put you on medication and have you see a therapist and psychiatrist after you go home. You may also have to do IOP, which is intensive outpatient therpay, where you go a few times a week to group therapy and individual counseling. You can refuse to go if you dont want to, but its suggested. IOP is really a hit or miss.
That’s basically the process. Another thing to mention is that your parents should bring you a bag of stuff. This should include clothes, hygeine stuff, towels, notebook, coloring book, books to read, schoowork, etc. Also be sure to have a sweatshirt and some long sleeves, as well as fuzzy socks or thick socks because it will be cold. You can’t have anything with strings so take them out before or the hospital will take them out or cut them off. The hospital will be able to tell what you can and cant have. Its different for each place. If you have specific concerns, be sure to vocalize them. I have severe allergies so I had to make sure i was allowed sheets and pillowcases and blankets from home or hypoallergenic ones from the hospital. I also needed to make sure i could have my own soap and shampoo and conditioner, as well as my lotions to keep my allergies calm. At one hospital i was automatically allowed all of that and at another i needed special permission. It all really depends on where you are.
I hope this was helpful. Going to the hospital is really scary, especially if its your first time, so being afraid is normal. My first time i cried for three days straight. Iam so proud of you for asking for help and i really hope you do go to the ER to get evaluated. If you (or anyone else) want to messgae me here or on my personal please do.
EDIT: I totally forgot to talk about HRT. If you are on testosteorne make sure they have it. I had to bring my own T and estorgen blockers to one of the hospitals i was at. They let me do my shot myself, supervised of course. They also took me off of my blocers for 3 days because they had to get it approved by their pharmacy which was really stressful. The other hospital had my estorgen blockers there so it was fine, and my time there didnt fall of a T shot day. But they said they had it for if i ended up staying longer.
