Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.
Tell me again how pregnancy is just an inconvenience and abortion rights aren’t necessary?
Holy shit. This is why I don’t understand when people from the UK are so nonchalant about the way the NHS is going. We are so God damned lucky to have access to free healthcare and so many people just don’t care.
I’m not gonna post it again coz if you’ve followed me for a while you will have seen it loads but the NNSS photo of me and Adam is currently at 111,603 notes :|
Meanwhile, the presumed stockpile of penis photos taken by Hollywood actors remains curiously untouched
Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

Ok so now I’m on the look out for lesbians with hair bows in the back
I just like how the bow on the left is a ‘signal and a chllange’ it’s like yeah, Betty’s been going steady with Tommy for a few weeks now, but let’s see if Ronny can step up his game before Betty becomes a right bow kind of girl
can i use ‘she wears her bow in the back’ as a euphemism now?
Omg she’s so beautiful.
My tummy hasn’t been this, for want of a better word, flat in months. I think I’ve mentioned on here before that I have IBS-c, and after going vegetarian and avoiding foods that I know my tummy doesn’t like I was starting to manage it. But ever since I tried the depo injection last year my IBS went mad. Usually it’s my brain that’s affected by contraception but with the injection it totally fxcked with my belly. I suffer from stomach distention to the point where I can’t wear certain clothes from the pain of it, I feel extremely uncomfortable 80% of the day and it’s affected every aspect of my life. I often see people with IBD and Crohns etc. on Tumblr saying how lucky people with IBS are and considering how alone and hard done by I’ve felt over the last year and a half, I can’t imagine what they go through on a daily basis. Unfortunately, even having come off the injection in April, my body is still not back to “normal” and the pain and the bloating and the overbearing self consciousness hasn’t gone but I’m still hoping it will at some point.
I’ve spent a lot of money on trying to manage my IBS; You name it, I’ve tried it. I was freaking out a little bit about going traveling because my self esteem has truly buckled and not only do I know that I’m going to face a lot of food that may trigger me, as well as sharing a room with strangers which can be embarrassing bathroom wise as it is, I know I’m going to have to wear a bikini which is hard enough without feeling like every meal you’ve ever eaten is still in your gut and stretching you out like a balloon. So on a whim I went to Boots a couple days ago and bought some Aloe Vera tablets, one of the last things I’ve been yet to try, and yesterday I woke up with a little tummy. And today. And for the first time I feel like something has actually helped my poor intestines cope. Now, this happy feeling could end next week, could end tonight even, so I’m making the most of it, drinking a butt load of water and sharing this picture so that even on the inevitable days where I feel like crying, it shows that everything is temporary and I won’t always feel so bad.
A note on the depo injection: Whilst it was a complete nightmare for my tum, the injection had very little affect on my mental health which as I mentioned is rare for me. The pills I’ve tried have always made me go from 0 to why am I alive in a matter of days, but all contraception affects everyone differently. Personally, I wouldn’t recommend it if you have stomach issues or experience bad PMS. It might be okay for people with sad brains though, such as myself.
