i wish ppl on here werent so anti-recovery. ur therapist teaching u coping methods isnt ‘neurotypical bs’. listen to ur therapist. take a break from social media if u have to. stay out of drama if it stresses u out. block ppl who hurt you or even ppl who piss you off.take time to chill but also make sure u do whatever work u can. talk to friends if ur able. find smbdy you can trust. but still treat them kindly and give them space if they need it. 

like yea sometimes ur stuck with a mental illness, but tha doesnt mean you cant work towards even a small bit of recovery in a healthy way

I get your point, but

I think my personal problem here isnt isn’t that I’m anti-recovery. I’m working very hard strengthening my ressources and skills in coping with bp, ptsd and ed. But after having some experiences with therapists  - there are huge differences between how they can approach the same tips to you.

For example there are pdocs out there thinking in very narrow narratives. They know the 3 top coping skills that ALL ppl with that specific MI will eventually find helpful and you HAVE TO respond to those.

And then there are pdocs that acknowledge that MIs come on a spektrum, that they and the people that have them are complex. That there isn’t this one way to recovery (if there even is one, all my stuff is “yeah you have to deal with this until you die but we try to make it as cool as we can get it) but that everybody has to find their own tools.

Yes, there are things that have been proven to be effektive to the majority, but that doesn’t neccesarily mean they are helpful to you specifically.

Therapy worked best for me when we looked into the things I already knew to work for me. Trying out new stuff but beeing able to say "I tried this for a week but it felt so shitty” and my pdoc says “okay, than we have a catalog of at least 20 other thinks we could try”.

Docs insisting that you to stay out of social media while you are having panik attacks because of it but refuse to find another tool IS neurotypical BS. And I think we all encountered to much of them to not be frustrated.

Therapists don’t know what will work for you, but they can narrow it down to a managable list and are there to play the “try and error” game on the list with you. They can suggest things you never thought of.

Encouraging your patients to try new things but also encouraging them to listen to themself is a huge part of therapy. And sometimes you discover later on, that skills you first dismissed actually works - just at another stage of your recovery.

But some therapists are dismissing what people find harmful or helpful for themself, setting unreasonable high expectations (“just go for a walk an hour a day” instead of “let’s start with one round around the house and we work from there on”) or trying to force you to work on problems that you don’t want to go into right now (or in other words: don’t let you set your own boundaries for the sessions or dismissing them).

And the last part brings me back to the beginning: Everybody should be able to set their own boundaries on how/what/when to recover. If you start therapy, most times you are willing to do some work or at least want the status quo to be changed. And in this moment, it’s so cruicidal to meet a GOOD therapist.

Most people I know that have the access to therapy, but doesn’t want to try again, are frustrated and disillusioned because of those shitty therapists.

And the irony is: tumblr helped me talking about all this because I learned that I don’t have to be ashamed of my MI.

“He kidnaps, she screams”: words associated with gender in Wikipedia plot descriptions

by variance_explained

In linguistics we call this “social gender”, which is basically whether a word has a feminine or masculine connotation. This kind of thing can be hard to intuit, since there are no hard and fast rules. Obvious examples include words like “nurse”, which may be technically gender neutral, but it’s got such a strong feminine connotation that many people will clarify “male nurse”. Less obvious examples are words like “muscles”, which all humans have, but the default interpretation is like, a manly guy with bulging biceps.

Many many words have social gender that’s difficult to notice, either because of the natural struggle to see gender, or because it’s just that subtle. So a corpus analysis like this is exciting because it gives concrete data on words we might not have thought twice about!!

Capitalism produces scarcity artificially where there is none.

There are enough houses.

There is enough food (in fact there’s currently massive amounts of “overproduced” grain being left to rot)

There is enough water.

Even without changing the horribly designed production systems, there is no real shortage.  People don’t starve, have no fresh water, have no houses to live in, etc. because there are not enough of these things.  People don’t have access because capitalism denies them it.

There’s enough to share for everyone.  It’s not a zero sum game for poor and oppressed peoples.

Eli Bosnick had the best response to this ridiculousness.

“If I gave you a bowl of skittles and three of them were poison would you still eat them?”

“Are the other skittles human lives?”


“Like. Is there a good chance. A really good chance. I would be saving someone from a war zone and probably their life if I ate a skittle?”

“Well sure. But the point-”

“I would eat the skittles.”

“Ok-well the point is-”

“I would GORGE myself on skittles. I would eat every single fucking skittle I could find. I would STUFF myself with skittles. And when I found the poison skittle and died I would make sure to leave behind a legacy of children and of friends who also ate skittle after skittle until there were no skittles to be eaten. And each person who found the poison skittle we would weep for. We would weep for their loss, for their sacrifice, and for the fact that they did not let themselves succumb to fear but made the world a better place by eating skittles.

Because your REAL question…the one you hid behind a shitty little inaccurate, insensitive, dehumanizing racist little candy metaphor is, IS MY LIFE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF MEN, WOMEN, AND TERRIFIED CHILDREN…

… and what kind of monster would think the answer to that question… is yes?”

It’s not actually known if lemons were made by humans or if they were just natural hybrids of citrons and sour oranges. Apparently it’s super common for citrons to fertilize basically anything they’re near.

great now we gotta kinkshame the fruit

Unpopular opinion that shouldn’t be unpopular: anti-bullying programs in school that don’t address the root causes of bullying - which are almost invariably larger forms of bigotry and oppression like racism, ableism and homophobia - are completely useless and ultimately futile.

kids get bullied, frequently, because they’re “weird”. but it just so happens that the traits society calls “weird” are overwhelmingly related to poverty, minority religion or ethnicity, neurodivergence, non-straight sexuality, and gender non conformance. 

funny, that.

and fatphobia. I know no fat kids who didn’t get bullied for it.
