So it was asked on another tumblr (spooniestrong) about when it was time to get a wheelchair. The person thinks it may be time, but isn’t certain. I replied in the notes, but they couldn’t see it and asked me directly for my answer. As I was on my phone last night,…
PillPack looks like a godsend for anyone with consistent medications who are sick of filling their pillpot every week (probably less so for folks whose meds are in flux due to treatment trials); anecdotally, it seems that some regular pharmacies provide a similar service, so definitely check with yours!
This is fucking awesome!
This is brilliant!

Artists have placed a giant poster depicting a child’s face in an area of Pakistan where US drone attacks occur. The project is called #NotABugSplat. This is in response to drone operators who refer to casualities as bug splats, cause from afar, viewed on monitors, that’s all the victims look like. The artists are hoping to have more artworks placed across Pakistan where drone strikes are frequent to help humanise victims to the strikers and the world.
Happening NOW: 30,000 Chinese workers strike at the world’s largest producer of athletic shoes such as Nike and Adidas over pay, benefits, and the right to choose a union. The strike, China’s largest in decades, has shutdown production for two weeks and caused the company’s stock price to plummet.
Bloomberg News reports:
"Workers have disrupted production in Yue Yuen’s Dongguan factory complex, which employs more than 40,000 people, since April 14 in a dispute over pay, benefits and the right to pick their own union. More than 50 percent of the workers were on strike today, Liu said. China Labour Watch, which estimated the striking workers at about 30,000, said a small number had returned to work, without quantifying it.”
One of the most dangerous things about forgiveness is that it undercuts your ability to let go of your pent-up emotions. How can you acknowledge your anger against a parent whom you’ve already forgiven? Responsibility can go only one of two places: outward, onto the people who have hurt you, or inward, into yourself. Someone’s got to be responsible. So you may forgive your parents but end up hating yourself all the more in the exchange.
I also noticed that many clients rushed to forgiveness to avoid much of the painful work of therapy. They believed that by forgiving they could find a shortcut to feeling better. A handful of them “forgave,” left therapy, and wound up sinking even deeper into depression or anxiety.
Several of these clients clung to their fantasies: “All I have to do is forgive and I will be healed. I will have wonderful mental health, everybody is going to love everybody, we’ll hug a lot, and we’ll finally be happy.” Clients all too often discovered that the empty promise of forgiveness had merely set them up for bitter disappointment. Some of them experienced a rush of well-being, but it didn’t last because nothing had really changed in the way they felt or in their family interactions.
