if painting your nails make you feel better, do it. if putting stickers on personal items makes you feel better, do it. if drawing shippy or kinky or silly or emotional things make you feel better, do it. if there is something that makes you feel better, even just a little bit, just fuckin do it
dont be embarrassed about what self care means to you. self care is important, and so are you
what’s that?? systematic oppression???? okay but have you tried being nice???
i hate when people say that women should dress more modestly in order to “leave something to the imagination”. leave what to the imagination? what do people think is under my clothes? a mass of algae? memes? shinji ikari?

Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
I was about to say it would be helpful if it were explained why we need to time it, but I see a helpful sort has added this in. Well done, helpful sort.
May I also add, from being told previously by a seizure-prone person - no one is going to swallow their own tongue. That is not a thing. However, they may choke, suffocate, or otherwise suffer lacerations from you trying to shove something into their mouth to keep them from doing this impossible thing. On no account do this.
Remember: If you see someone having a seizure in public and no one is helping, STEP UP. Literally everyone there is assuming that either a person in authority will step in or that people would be reacting if something were “really” wrong. That’s called the Bystander Effect. In reality, there is no “person in authority.” There is only you. So be the awesome person that you are and help!
