your own work

Adverbs aren’t evil; said isn’t dead
Please stop hitting the wall with your head

Active is grand but not always the best
Sometimes it’s passive that passes the test

Some write with style, others write plain
Let’s all agree that writing’s a pain

The ‘rules’ can be broken, twisted, or bent
All that matters is that you are content

Make your own story and write your own way
This has been a writer’s PSA

Two families

In the 1920s, my father’s family was living as Jews.  They lived in a tiny out-of-the-way town that was all Jewish, they spoke Yiddish, they were poor, and their lives centered around Jewish community and observance.  When the Nazis came to power, many of them were killed.

My mother’s family was living as Germans.  They lived in a big city, they spoke German, they held high-status jobs, the men had fought for Germany in WWI, they had many non-Jewish friends and neighbors, and although they were aware they were ethnically Jewish, they were not very observant.  When the Nazis came to power, many of them were killed.

Y'all gotta learn to give ppl they space. You can’t expect ppl to have unlimited emotional energy to be able to help you and always give you advice when you need it. Ppl got they own baggage to deal with without having to help you sort through yours too

How to Become more Open to Life

1. Judge less; accept more. (This relates both to ourselves and others)

2. Be flexible when you’re setting your goals; be open to changing in unexpected ways.

3. Be aware of your automatic reactions and defensive mechanisms. Although they often serve you well – they can trip you up as well.

4. Have an open mind; be willing to listen and consider viewpoints that are different from your own.

5. Work to manage and overcome your fears – as these close us off from life and endless possibilities.

6. Let go of the need to control everything.

(Press on it please, thank you.)

Reblog to make it your own aesthetic

You’ll never know what you’re capable of until you give yourself the time and the space to get started. Take a step back. Breathe. Start when you’re ready, and be amazed at your abilities.

Hello Batwynn! Um I was wondering if you had any tips or tricks to help fight an upset stomach after a severe panic attack? B/c after a severe one, my stomach feels like it's one giant knot and I can't eat despite being hungry or having my favorite food in front of me. I might as well be looking at a pile of trash, I get nausea :( got any advice? Thank you and take care <3

Hi there anon, i’m sorry to hear about your trouble with nausea after a panic attack. I know exactly what you mean, especially when you feel hungry and you simply can’t stomach food.

First thing’s first, if you have the type of anti anxiety medication you take when needed, be sure to take that as soon as you can and take some small sips of water. [An empty stomach is more likely to cramp with medication is introduced.] 

The first I usually do when i’m hit with panic-attack-nausea is try to either find a cool place to rest, splash my face with cold water, or place a cold paper towel/towel against the back of my neck. This helps easing those overheating and nausea signals going bzzt around your body. 

After that, though, I know the nausea can linger for a while, and the tension from the panic attack can make it very hard to eat afterwards. So, I would suggest stretching your abdomen/torso out with a few stretches like this:

Your abdominal muscles will thank you, and you will also help your breathing.

But, that’s not all! I would also suggest a heat pack/ hot water bottle for your stomach area to try to ease the muscle tension. These are fantastic for IBS, or stress related cramps and nausea, and I highly recommend it for easing stress even without nausea present. [ Warning: Sometimes heat can make nausea worse for some people. Personally, the hotter I get, the sicker I feel. So, when using heat, it’s good to test your limits gently. Try leaving the heat on for several minutes at a time, and taking it off again, and never apply any heating device directly to your skin!] 

 @apocatits adds that a nice hot bath always helps her [ Again, it’s always good to know your limits. I’ve known people who faint when having hot baths, especially after panic attacks.]  She also suggests elevating your legs. [Which is good to do after a panic attack anyway, with your blood pressure and all that.] 

My mother says that music tends to help her. Peaceful, soothing music, or music that makes you move/dance/wiggle, or even music that makes you cry. Music that gets you to the next moment, and out of that headspace. 

And, if you really can’t ease the nausea on your own, I might suggest anti-nausea medications as well. [Always check drug interactions, and check with your doctor before taking anything you aren’t used to. Tums or Ranitidine is good lower stomach acid. Pepto Bismol chewable tablets ease bloating, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea.] 

Lastly, when you do eat, I suggest trying simple foods like soup first and foremost. Start with small sips/bites, and see how it goes. :) Good luck, and I hope this helped!


Mike Chilton - Take Me Home (Hollywood Undead)

YEAH IT’S FINALLY DONE HELL YES.  I had to make this because if I ever heard a song with lyrics that described Mike Chilton more aptly than “reckless till the day I rest my bones”, I don’t remember it (but if I ever do I will definitely have to make a video with it).

It kind of looks a little bit like he died at the end.  OH WELL.  RIP in peace Mikey.

I’m sick of hiding who I really am, so let me explain a few things about myself.

1. I’m independent- so independent that I don’t get attached to people at all. But just because I’m independent and like doing things alone without help doesn’t mean I don’t get lonely. In fact, I get lonely a lot, and I crave attention even though I can’t stand getting too close. Maybe I just feel vulnerable and don’t want people knowing too much about me, but the last thing I want is for no one to ever really know me.

2. I like to pretend I have my life together, but I don’t and that terrifies me, so much that I don’t like to talk or think about it.

3. I love giving people advice, but I’m terrible at taking other people’s advice. I love to suppress all my feelings and problems until I can pretend I don’t have any, just because I don’t know how to deal with any of it without thinking thoughts that I’m too scared to think.

4. Sometimes I don’t care at all and other times I care too much. There aren’t too many times in between. And I don’t tend to care about things that other people care about. I don’t care about the little things. I’m not being indecisive when I say “I don’t care.” I really mean that it doesn’t make a difference to me.

5. Sometimes I won’t tell you things because I don’t think they matter. Other times I won’t tell you things because they matter too much to me and I can’t risk being hurt by what you think.

6. I have a fear of annoying people, so I tend to not talk a lot, but I’m still an open book. If you ask me about myself and I see that you actually want to know the answer, then I’ll tell you.

7. I’m awful about talking about feelings, so I’m sorry if I don’t apologize or if I don’t tell you I care about you enough, but it’s too uncomfortable for me to bring those things up. Just know that if I don’t tell you something in person, I still mean it and you can be sure that I’ll write about it later.
