Ok so when i don’t like things about myself I aim to change those things until I like myself, so that could be appearance or habits or whatever but this is the current list:

* START CALLING PEOPLE OUT ON MISOGYNISTIC SHIT BECAUSE YOU USUALLY LET IT SLIDE WHEN YOU HEAR IT AND THAT’S NOT OK

* SAME GOES FOR THE N WORD AND THE R WORD

* keep trying to be a decent human being

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

So I got poison ivy on my lips somehow which sucks cause I have poison ivy on my lips, but also I feel like if I wanted I could give someone a poison kiss and that’s a cool trick

Just trying to get the message out there, I hope this helps someone 

NOTE TO FRIENDS

I had panic attack 8th-11th grade. Not fun. It was so scary. Signal boost.

Rule 1 of first aid for helping those suffering a panic attack: Keep your fucking self calm. Don’t flail around and scream for help. YOU need to take charge. YOU need to be there for the person suffering the attack.

Some helpful hints:

- Hold their arm/hand. Squeeze gently when you breathe in. Encourage them to breathe with you if they can.
- Stay calm.
- Ask them to count to one as they breathe in and out. Then count to two. Then three.
- Stay with them. Tell them you are staying with them.
- Get rid of crowds. No really.
- Remind them it will not last longer than twenty minutes. Reassure them you have been timing it and it’s nearly over.
- Stay calm. (Did I mention this…)
- When they have settled, give them a small drink and maybe something small to eat - lollipops or candy sweets are good.
- Don’t instantly want answers about the attack or trigger. Talk about something, literally ANYTHING ELSE.
- Stay calm.


[This comes from being a certified first aider at work, having a panic and anxiety disorder myself and having a student with severe attacks - I’ve dealt with four this week alone.]

This is incredibly good advice.
