Chronic illness has this way of taking away your ability to earn money while simultaneously costing you a whole lot more money. Lovely.

I have a really exciting Spoonie Living announcement for y’all! When I started on my 6-month medical leave from work, one of my goals was to create a zine for new spoonies, to help them hit the ground running as they begin their chronic illness experience. I’m calling it Chronically Badass, and it’s finally done!
Here’s what I cover inside:
Spoon theory
Getting answers
Working with doctors
Work & school
Friends & family
Reactions
Mental health
Coping strategies
Online communities
Mobility
It’s free for download right here (although you’re welcome to donate if you like), so be sure to check it out! Just set the price to $0, and the credit card fields will disappear.
Please also reblog and spread the word so others can find and benefit from this zine.

anxiety about me

mom’s best friend who lives fifteen minute walk from me told me today that I can take Miro whenever I want to, for walks, play dates, introduce him to Luna, cuddle and whatnot. I’m so happy he’s such a nice dog and gosh it’s like being some sort of cool auntlike to a dog??

this flare up is so bad and so long I’m sort of losing hope here

Was dropped from the work program I was in because my ability to work was way to low for it to give any results.

Jess is coming this weekend from England, but I’m worried I’ll be too exhausted to be good company, especially after stressing all week. The place is a mess and I have no food. my stepfather was in a car accident this morning. He’s fine, already home, but the car is a wreck so mom can’t drive me to Sweden for grocery shopping. I also expect she won’t be able to help me clean on Friday afterall so I must do that on my own. I also need to figure out how to pick up and drop jess off at the airport.

Was invited to movie night on Saturday but one of them couldn’t come so the rest wanted to do something else. I was told they’d get back to me when they knew what but I never heard anything. All the people I contact about hanging out says “that be nice” or “sure!” then nothing. If we accidentally meet they’re really awkward.

I’m so exhausted. So tired. Just so fed up feeling like this and being unable to do anything. Living on apples and noodles. Sleeping 12+ hours a day. Not have anyone to talk to. Feel like a disappointment or a burden or charity case.

HEY.

Stop reblogging that post about calling.emaling McCulloch to take the Mike Brown case. The protestors do not want him prosecuting the case due to his multiple familial ties to the police department. (Source 1, 2, 3)

So repeat, do not email or call McCulloch to take the case. He will be unfairly biased in favor of the police.
