recoveryisbeautiful:

Just because I have a chemical imbalance in my brain and a distorted body image doesn’t mean that the things I see and feel aren’t real.

Reality is subjective.

What we experience is real to us. Mental illness isn’t an excuse to invalidate what someone says is real.

if you’ve ever written one of those artsy advice things and you tell people to “call your parents and tell them you love them. what they did probably wasnt that bad”, here’s some questions for you:

  1. why the fuck would you do that
  2. do you think #abuse survivors dont exist
  3. since when are parents always good
  4. what the fuck is wrong with you

My best friend is taking my blades tomorrow and I am both relieved and scared?

Perfectly normal. I gave mine to Charlie when I was drunk and decided I was done with them. The next day I kind of regretted it, but it’s helped me stay almost 1 year clean! 

S’alright if you’re scared, as long as you know that this could really help you and you’re taking a positive step. You can do it sweetie. <3 


Um, there seems to be something wrong with the link to your main blog. When I clicked it I was redirected to a porn site. It was very startling.

“To suggest that one’s belly, body hair or tattoo is ‘distasteful’ and should therefore be covered in the name of etiquette is the very worst sort of body fascism. If your children are traumatised by the sight of a fat person in a bikini, a bit of cellulite or a caesarean scar, then may I tentatively suggest that you aren’t raising them correctly. If seeing someone hairy wearing something skimpy renders you ‘unable to eat your lunch’ then I’m afraid my diagnosis of the problem is with your brain, not their body.”

this is a really difficult post for me to write. i’m hugely embarrassed and i wish to god i didn’t have to make this post but i don’t know what else to do.

i can’t get into specifics — and, i’m sorry, but i really don’t want to get into specifics either, it’s just really personal and i don’t feel comfortable sharing online — but i’m in sore need of money. i have about ten dollars to live off of for myself, josh, and our cat, indefinitely.

to top it off, our landlady’s requested partial rent early because she’s just found out someone’s defrauded her.

my rent this month is 600 dollars, and we have no food save a box of mashed potatoes and a couple of cans of vegetables. my laptop is also on the fritz, which means I can’t work on commissions well — i only need a few more parts for my desk top.

this situation was incredibly unexpected and i am already behind on commissions so i can’t do much more than what’s already on my plate.

i put up a donation button on my main page. or, you can just donate [here], in USD.

i don’t expect money for nothing, so if you do want to commission me and don’t mind waiting for a while then please feel free to do so. you can send me your commission info [here].

thanks for reading.

I fixed the donation link in this post! I’m so sorry about that ._.

Reminder for those who don’t know, if you have a vagina, make sure to urinate immediately after you have P-in-V sex.  Bacteria can get in your urethra during P-in-V intercourse so as soon as you are done having sex, go to the bathroom go pee, even if it doesn’t feel like you need to, because even a little pee can flush out the bacteria and prevent a UTI.  I didn’t know about this and I got a UTI from my first time, and it was super awful and uncomfortable and unfortunately even those with good sex education rarely learn info like this.  I want everyone with a vagina to know how to prevent it because UTIs suck hard.  That is all.

I was gonna call bullshit but planned parenthood seem to back it up. who knew!
