Planning Ahead For Relapse or Bad Days

rasa2013:

The standard question here is, “What can I do to help myself?” But I would change it just a little bit to, "What will I be able to do to help myself?”

The problem I’ve encountered is that I make a beautiful list of things I can do, but when I actually need that list, I either can’t get myself to do the things on it or don’t even bother looking at it.

When we’re in the middle of relapse or a bad day, we just can’t do the same things we can do when we’re alright. Unfortunately, that means the beautiful, comprehensive list becomes pointless. 

Fix your coping strategy to the experience you have when you really need it. My advice is to keep it short and simple. Ideally so simple and short that you don’t even have to look at a list to know what to do. Once you’re feeling a bit better, then you can contemplate the long list you would have ignored.

cis people don’t choose to be cis

they do, however, more often than not, 

choose to be shitty to trans women.

I haven’t posted anything lengthy or terribly eloquent on the subject of women in geek culture lately, have I? Have this instead.

Living with mental illness is like navigating a mine field every day where you’re the only person who knows about the mines. If you get through the day without tripping a mine, to everyone else it looks like you just took a walk across a nice open field. It’s not worth mentioning, let alone congratulating you over. But if you lose and everything blows up in your face, everyone notices. Everyone sees. And since they can’t see the mines, they just assume you built the bomb yourself and let it explode.

Accurate.

just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out. 

these are fantastic!  i’m so excited to see femmepowered and open gates MHC create a similar campaign at mount holyoke.  i know both colleges are worried (to varying degrees) about reactions from alumnae, but this alumna supports you—and trans women’s inclusion—100%.

you should check out #AcademicAbleism on twitter, if you haven’t already. 

I’m interested in more discussions on how this impacts students in lower grade levels. How does the young black girl feel about herself when she encounters a teacher who isn’t skilled in properly accommodating her learning disability? How is her future trajectory affected - will she #elementaryableism prevent her from even having access to/experiencing #academicableism?

I usually reblog my comics once more to add some commentary and this time I forgot.
I had a bit of trouble when I was in the drafting stage, as I was trying to figure out an example of that “one very small and insignificant thing” to use that was universal, but nothing came out. In the end, I decided that just to say it was something small and insignificant was good enough, I didn’t need to elaborate on it. Sometimes I forget I’m drawing a comic strip and I don’t have to have to be so literal sometimes.
This strip is to say it isn’t impossible to have happy giddy moments when you’re depressed, but for me at least they are incredibly tenuous and easily torn down.

If you only care about neuroatypical people if they’ve been diagnosed by a professional, you don’t care about neuroatypical people.
