I’m not alone.
…I’m never alone.
Every person needs to reboot this
They are VerY real
The people I’ve met over the web and are great friends with, hell, even one is my boyfriend, are more fucking real than most of the people I meet on a daily basis in “reality”.
Don’t let people get you the wrong way, people IRL can be dicks and many of these people from the internet had the same problem and is quite more closer.
Internet friends are real and they are some of the greatest friends ever.
I’m in the best relationship of my life and it’s online. My best, most caring friends are online. I will fight anyone who says that Internet friendships aren’t real.
You know, I have a friend who I met online and who has been to my house, I was able to physically give her a hug. But we met online. So is she not real then? Even though I could reach my hand out and touch her? What does that make her then?
I met someone online once. They were in America, I live in the UK.
Many years later, we ended up getting married and now we live together.
Not real friendships? lol
“A three second exposure meant that subjects had to stand very still to avoid being blurred, and holding a smile for that period was tricky. As a result, we have a tendency to see our Victorian ancestors as even more formal and stern than they might have been.”
I’ve reblogged this before and I will reblog it again.
This is so great

One time I had to go to the hospital because I had a huge infection in my leg. Like if they hadn’t started treatment in 10 hours I would be dead kind of infection. It took like 3 hours for them to process me and tell me, hey you’re 17 so we can’t take you here. You have to go to the kids hospital that’s about an hour away. And, since you’re here, you have to take an ambulance, your mom can’t drive you.
If they told me 3 hours ago that they can’t take people under 18, I could have been there. I almost died from infection because they wouldn’t see me that fast in the ER.
And they made us pay for the ambulance.
UK folks - this is exactly why we need to defend the NHS from the Tory fuckers who want to privatise it. It might have its flaws, and we all take it for granted, but let’s not forget that if you were in an accident tomorrow and hospitalised for a week, you would pay nothing for your treatment. MEDICAL TREATMENT IS A RIGHT, NOT A PRIVILEGE.
Yeah, those of you in countries with national health care, fight for it! It sucks here. :/ I’m below the poverty line and I told the ER that I was on Medicaid when I went in because of an overdose that left me catatonic. No matter how often I repeated that, they refused to listen because I was a resident of a different state. For three years, they sent me bills with interest piling up that I couldn’t pay a dime on, no matter how many people I talked to. So, yeah, you fight for that free healthcare, folks! It’s important and at least getting sick won’t ruin your life or make you bankrupt.
It’s Fibromyalgia Awareness Week!!
Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body.
Anyone can develop fibromyalgia, although it affects around seven times as many women as men. The condition typically develops between the ages of 30 and 50, but can occur in people of any age, including children and the elderly.
oh i didnt know there was a fibro week

This should go to history.
#DidYouKnow #Deaf #DeafAwareness #education #SignLanguage #advocacy #NMSCares
This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.
i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.
I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.
What the fuck kind of parenting is that? I’m appalled.
Listen, man. If you’re going to be a parent, then that means you have to be prepared to pull your finger out and do things for them, even when it’s inconvenient for you. Your kid didn’t ask to be lumped in with you; you did that, and now you’re going to have to do everything you can to make that kid’s life as decent and balanced and good as you can possibly manage. That’s what being a parent means. Your kids don’t owe you shit.
Now normally when I explain that it’s because someone is bitching and whining about having an ungrateful child who doesn’t want to do X, Y or Z with them or for them or who isn’t living up to expectations, like that child is indebted to them because they fulfilled the basic criteria of human decency by raising them with some semblance of compassion and care, but this? Horrendous.
I’m sorry, does learning a new skill so that you can communicate with your child seem like it’s above and beyond somehow? Sorry, matey, but it isn’t. You’re a parent, this is your job. Pull your fucking socks up.
Sadly this is common.
"I’m too old to learn." Is one of my least favourite cliche sayings ever and it makes my gears grind constantly, as I can usually point out to the person what new skill set they learnt recently (this is ignored, of course.). But that’s for non-critical issues like learning to efficiently use a new computer.
The idea that someone would say that in response to being in the situation of not being able to communicate with their child? Fuck that right off, I would see red.

My phone made a noise reminding me to turn off my phone before my sister’s wedding. This post was the notification.
