Chronic pain sufferers are not addicted to pain killers. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to not having to be aware of every inch of their body for every waking moment. Chronic pain sufferers are addicted to the freedom of nothingness, and don’t you dare judge them for wanting something you get free of charge.

This is why I find the idea of worrying that I’ll get ‘dependent’ almost laughable - of course I’ll be constantly dependent, I’m constantly in pain.

(via lumpyspaceprinxe)

I wish doctors understood this.

(via lesshumansmorecats)

I’m more physically dependent on my seizure meds than people on opiates are to those meds, and nobody calls it an addiction, even though unlike most people’s response to opiate withdrawal, seizure med withdrawal CAN KILL YOU.

Physical dependence and addiction are two different things. Get it straight. The fear of everyone getting addicted to opiates if they take them for pain relief is completely unfounded by science. It happens but not frequently compared to people who don’t get addicted. And most of this is based in fear and hatred of addicts, and the drug war, rather than concern for anyone’s safety.

If you were concerned for people’s safety you’d give them opiates. They are the safest of the long-term painkillers — anticonvulsants, NSAIDS, and steroids all have much more dangerous side-effects. And untreated pain is not just severely uncomfortable, it’s also dangerous to the body’s ability to heal from just about anything medically, and puts the body under such strain that you become sicker and in more danger of being sick than you would if your pain is treated. So even if treating the sensations of pain was some kind of frivolous thing — which it isn’t — treating the effects of pain on the body, is nowhere near frivolous.

(via youneedacat)

Not to mention, if safety were the actual concern, they would stop formulating opiates with acetominophen for no medical reason in a deliberate attempt to harm and eventually kill addicts. This policy also ends up injuring many “legitimate” users even when we strictly adhere to prescribed dosages, but I will never blame addicts for the government and healthcare institutions deciding that the best way to handle addiction is to murder the people who suffer from it.

(via cabell)

My seizures and my mood disorder are helped (though not fully controlled) by the same drug at the moment: a benzodiazapine. When people hear I’m on it for a mood disorder, they concern troll about addiction. When they hear I’m on it for seizures, they don’t bat an eyelid.

MUST READ: Learn about homosexuality during the Holocaust.

When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.

This should be required learning, internationally. 

You need to know this. You need to remember this. This is not something to swept under the carpet nor be forgotten. 
Never. Too many have died for the way they have loved. That needs stop now. 
Make it stop? 

I did a report on this in my World History class my sophomore year of high school. It was incredibly unsettling.

My teacher shown the class this. Mostly everyone in the class felt uncomfortable. 

I have reblogged this in the past, but it is so ironic that it comes across my dash right now. I a currently working as a docent at my city’s Holocaust Education Center (( I say currently because I’ve also done research and translation for them )) and out current exhibit is one on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum ((USHMM)). This is a little known historical fact that Paragraph 175 was not repealed after the war and those convicted under Nazi laws as a danger to society because they were gay were not released because they had be convicted in a court of law. There was no liberation or justice for them as they weren’t considered criminals, or even victims for that matter. They were criminals who remained persecuted and ostracized and kept on the fringes of society for decades after the war had been won. Paragraph175 wasn’t actually repealed until 1994. And it was only in May 2002, that the German parliament completed legislation to pardon all homosexuals convicted under Paragraph175 during the Nazi era. History has forgotten about these men and women — please educate yourselves so this does not happen again. Remember this history. Remember them.

okay but please please tell me someone sat down and wrote after-mulan fic where some days li shang wakes up and rolls over and murmurs mulan’s name and reaches out for her only to hear “call me ping today” whispered back

and how everyone else not in the know thinks he has a wife and a secret army boyfriend and that he’s hiding one from the other

and someone tries to tell mulan and she just collapses laughing because they’re close but totally wrong

and li shang all the time just deals with it because he loves ping and he loves mulan and he doesn’t care what name he’s using or what gender he’s kissing as long as he can sneak one kiss a day

the dragon kind of creeps him out sometimes but it’s all cool

it’s all cool

This is not about an actress of color, but please vote against David O. Russell being included in #TIME100. If you are unaware, he admitted to sexually assaulting his transgender niece, and does not deserve any sort of praise or recognition. Reblog to spread the word!

.The subject matter of that second link is obvious from the text, but be advised, it is a very detailed account of physical violation of a type and context that many trans women will have direct experience with. I feel physically ill and very anxious—as one does when one is an unsafe environment—having read it. Proceed with caution.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR POINTING THIS OUT UGH

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Help drop the child abuse charges against Shanesha Taylor by signing this petition at change.org.

Hey there! I just saw your post about those nifty Hello Pronoun stickers you designed. I was wondering if you had a digital version available online for people to use on their blogs and stuff? If not, would you be okay with someone releasing digital versions of the stickers? (with all credit to you, of course!)

I feel like the format is a bit obtuse in that sort of situation, but sure! If people would like to use them like that I have no reason to stop them: 

There you go! Conveniently sized for sidebars and featuring transparent corners. 

I suspect this may be useful to many people who read me here.
