I need feminism because my self worth is constantly defined by the type of clothes I wear.
stop dressing like a slut and you won’t be treated like one
And thats why we need feminism, join us next week to read about how that guy is single
Tbh I can’t wait for winter so I can wear cozy clothing and light candles
Tomorrow I’m going to visit Stonehill College with my mom! My anxiety is being annoying about it, but I’m doing my best to get it back in its place. This involves rationalizing almost every concern I have and it’s just..It’s kind of exhausting.
Anyway, tomorrow I also have doctor’s appointment! My doctor is very nice, so I’m not too worried. I do have to talk about medication for my anxiety with her, though. My therapist said I’d probably go on SSRIs, and I’m nervous about some of the side effects.
Apparently, as your body adjusts to the medicine, suicidal thoughts and behaviors can occur—as well as an increased chance of self-injury—for those under 24. And I’m weary of that, being 17 and already being at risk for depression based on family history and my own anxiety disorder. I don’t want to be dealing with anything like that—especially when I’m 33 days free from SH and hoping to never go back. I’m assuming my parents and friends will be monitoring me, and I will (hopefully) remember that such feelings are a side effect of the medicine—if such things occur.
Do any of you guys have experience with SSRIs, in general or as a minor?
I AM SMILING SO BIG RIGHT NOW. CAN I GIVE YOU A HUG? You don’t know how much that means to me. I worry all the time that I won’t be a good teacher, so this was what I needed. Thank you so, so, so much. I love you dearly.
Best and God bless! <3
