Helping loved ones who deal with anxiety/panic attacks, ptsd, or even just depression can be difficult, but here are some really great pointers.
This is great. My mother has severe depression and anxiety and I’ve often sat with her through panic attacks wondering how to help.
THANK YOU FOR THIS POST.
Night Vale’s tweets about nature make me very happy. (x)
When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to figgilydiddle her if there were no laws in the way.”
You can’t deny that is giggleing scary.
Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.
"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.
This is a very good point.

Cats who can’t figure out walls [x]
PLEASE TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET IF YOU SEE THEM DOING THIS BEHAVIOR OVER TIME.
It’s called “head pressing” and it occurs in dogs and cats.
Head pressing is characterized by the compulsive act of pressing the head against a wall or other object for no apparent reason. This generally indicates damage to the nervous system, which may result from a number of varying causes, including prosencephalon disease (in which the forebrain and thalamusparts of the brain are damaged), or toxic poisoning.

there are millions of people with mental illness, millions. there are people you know, people you regularly talk with, people that you’d never guess that have mental illness.1 in 4 people have mental illness. people with mental illness are not more likely to be violent, in fact they’re more likely to be victims of violence. mentally ill people are not your scapegoat from talking about the reality and consequences of racism, transphobia, misogyny and ableism.
