[Photoset of Sailor Moon winking. Texts read: Made a phone call, Ordered the food you really wanted,  Asked a question in class, Cooked yourself a good meal, Got out of bed today, Calmed yourself down from a panic attack, Didn’t overwork yourself, Practiced self-care.]

Sometimes we get so focused on the big things that it’s easy to forget our small accomplishments, so I made the Sailor Moon Award! Celebrate the little accomplishments you make throughout the day, you deserve it!

Feel free to print these out and use them if you want, or make your own!

petticoatruler:

don’t
expect them to be able to go out on a whim
expect them to have lives just like yours
expect them to always be available
demand details of their illness that they haven’t volunteered, ask them nicely and don’t badger
offer help or assistance to make yourself feel like a better person
act as though the disease is catching, repugnant, or disgusting
challenge them to do things they have already told you were impossible
baby them or treat them as though they’re less competent mentally
tell other people about their illness(es)
suggest cures/treatments/holistic practices (since, you know, they probably have already tried it)
Try to relate their problem to your experience - your sprained ankle is nothing like chronic pain, your bout with stomach flu is nothing like IBS, your inability to focus before coffee is nothing like the mental fog that comes with illnesses like fibromyalgia or MS
ever, ever, ever accuse them of faking. ever.
do
understand that some chronic illnesses have good days and bad days, and that there’s no way to predict what’ll happen
be supportive and understand their limitations
ask about dietary or physical restrictions if you are making plans with them
ask about anything that might make things worse for them, and take it into account
tell them that if they need to tell you they can’t do something that you won’t be angry at them for not being able to, and don’t be passive-aggressive about it
remember that they are a person, not an illness
listen to them, ask them questions if you don’t understand something, and remember what they say
I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but this seems like a decent start. Please add your own.

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)

as a person who has suffered multiple seizures, and will most likely and unfortunately have more, this is a major need on my blog. everyone needs to know these facts!

Think about how you will react if your child is fat. Over time, if you’re making it clear that you don’t want a fat son or daughter, well, your son or daughter may not be able to stop being fat. But your son or daughter can eventually choose to stop being your son or daughter. Imagine your adult child building a life with people who aren’t nagging about weight loss, or who can enjoy doing something physical without making it about weight loss, or who can eat a meal without it being about weight loss. Calling home? Not required. Spending time together? Optional. Listening to…weight jokes? Optional.

tw: abusive parents

Aha!  Found it.  (Advice targeted to parents of fat people, but good advice for all parents, IMO.)

Source: http://living400lbs.wordpress.com/2011/10/23/for-all-the-parents-out-there/#respond

(Which is a wonderful blog as well, so signal boost as well.)

I literally am that adult they describe. (And the fat shaming was only part of what I left.)

——-

^^ Not my comments above, tumblr is just trash about reblogging quotes.

BUT ALSO I JUST WANTED TO SAY that while this is good advice for parents, it’s ALSO a good reminder for those who have shitty parents - if you have the option to leave, you don’t need to feel guilty for doing so.  It is not your job to take abuse, just because they’re your parents.

Thought this may be useful for a few people on here!

This is a new app called ‘Self-help Anxiety Management' by The University Of West England

SAM has been developed by a university team of Psychologists, computer scientists and student users. It engages established methods of self-help and high standards of usability to provide a engaging, flexible & practical resource.

This app is currently only available for devices using Android.

omg i need a smart phone just for this app.

THIS LOOKS AMAZING

Signal boosting this as someone who has pretty debilitating anxiety just in case it could help someone else. I’m gonna give it a go.

I decided at 2AM this my morning to stay up and make a zine of survival mechanisms and just me talking about my favorite things, like CDG, Lady Vengeance, Beyonce, etc. I have not slept yet I am going to go do that soon probably. 

It is 16 pages long and in color and downloadable from my Google Drive, so you can download it and print it out for yourself and forward it to your friends also. The images are colored weird on Google Drive viewer, but if you download the zine, it will be fine. In any case, it is for you. It is for free. Please reblog it if you read it! I hope you enjoy it and I wish you so much love for 2014. 

Here is the link. I love you a lot, 

Arabelle
