Also TW for some caps and swearing
Some a-hole on a Fandom page claims that equality movements such as Black Lives Matter and MeToo are “no longer needed since it’s popular in Western society”.
Black trans women are still being murdered to this day. Many women are still getting raped to this day. And DO NOT SAY “but men get raped too” as an excuse! Yes, it’s sad and it should never happen to ANYONE, but saying that as a combat is just an attempt to excuse the situation or make it seem little. It’s sickening and gross.
Black folks are still being targeted for racism especially by the authorities. Black churches are burning. Asians were JUST compared to the virus not that long ago and still are today (please don’t say the virus name, it haunts me). Non-white folks and LGBTQ+ folks are still facing unfair challenges such as pay gaps, unequal healthcare, sexist/racist/queerphobic remarks on a day to fucking day basis. Non-binary and genderqueer folks are STILL often ignored in our society.
Just because they are fucking popular sayings or beliefs DOESN’T MEAN that there are little issues or that they’re “no longer needed”. That is such a horrible, disgusting, pig-ish way to even look at this. These are still big fucking issues that we deal with not just here, but in this world as well. They still exist on a daily basis and it’s hurting many of us, and to say that bullcrap is just so fucking selfish! 😡😡😡
Anyone else have thoughts of irritation/ anger at all the headlines and TV interruptions about President Trump’s condition and COVID treatment? I feel like I’m pretty unreactive to most of what goes on with him and the media. The media reaction and all of the “specialists” giving their opinion on how Trumps condition must be serious if they “initiated dexamethasone therapy,” made me so angry I surprised myself! Like, all the sudden I had this hot fire in my chest and I couldn’t handle hearing one more second of it!!
Now, the issue is not whether you like Trump or not, the issue is how crazy everyone was going over the fact that they gave him dexamethasone. Now, I am no doctor, but I feel like any of the “experts” that felt that dexamethasone is only used in extreme situations should have their medical degree and license taken and suspended indefinitely.
This is coming not just from having several autoimmune conditions myself, but also from working in a pharmacy every day. Do these people live in a little bubble together where no one gets sick and medication is only ever used for one specific indication?! Do they have any idea how many people use crazy amounts of steroids including dexamethasone just every day. Do they know about chemo drugs? That there are people getting chemotherapy through ports in their brains every day? Have they never heard about a biologic?
Whether it’s for the President or not I feel like dexamethasone is a lightweight. And to the people freaking out over an oxygen drop to 94%....... Don’t even get me started!
Am I the only one thinking this?
Prime example this week. I called in sick on monday because I was awake for 34ish hours (due to insomnia). Not sleeping also triggers my other conditions like migraines and RA flare ups.
Anyway, this is a prime example of why I always regret telling my coworkers (or anyone) about my insomnia at work. Its so damn frustraing to get responses like these from people when the know i have chronic illnesses
Me: sorry i didnt come in. I was awake for about 34 hours and didnt think it was safe to work.
Coworker: have you tried warm milk with garlic? Works for me every time.
Coworker 2: Lush has this lotion that helps me sleep. It smells so good
NO KAREN. IVE HAD INSOMNIA MY WHOLE LIFE AND NEVER THOUGHT TO TRY WARM MILK BEFORE. AND I CANT TRY THAT LOTION BECAUSE SCENTS TRIGGER MY MIGRAINES BUT COOL, THANKS FOR YOUR MAGICAL MILK AND LOTION CURES THAT'LL CHANGE MY BRAIN CHEMISTRY FOR SURE

Oh my God, my older sister posted on Facebook that is the decision to be happy. I commented and told her that was bullshit. No one chooses to have a mental illness and be miserable part of the time. I told her that she needed to educate herself and for her to say that sounded ignorant. #SHEDELETEDMYPOST
We get depressed because of our thoughts... our thoughts which wander aimlessly all the time in our mind, not letting us be at peace. And the thing about mind is that it will always keep thinking or wondering no matter what! So we have to find our own peace amidst this chaotic thinking process! after all these years of suffering from depression, getting out of it, relapsing and again coming out of it, i’ve learned one thing that sometimes IGNORANCE IS BLISS. We need to train our mind to focus on thoughts and things which are good for our mental health and learn IGNORE thoughts that produce chaos in our mind.
It is easier said than done. Because i’ve been through it so i know how difficult it is to control your own mind, your own thought process... I won’t say that i have mastered this IGNORANCE, but all i can say is i try everyday and i am getting better at it and i hope YOU will also try, learn,train and practice. Because no one or nothing is worth destroying your mental peace and only you can train your mind to practice and be at peace and no one else. #peace #MentalHealth #Depression #ignore #ignorance
Saw my pain management today who told me an educational program would allow me to manage my pain better.... I’m 27 with increasingly worsening and new symptoms enough for my dr to order a neurologist review but pain management want me to ‘think myself better’ no wonder people with #Fibromyalgia feel unsupported a lot of the to time ignorance isn’t professional #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #ignorance #frustrated
