sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

Prozac has literally stopped me killing myself. I would be dead if it weren’t for antidepressants. If you spread misinformation I’ll come to your house and smack u into orbit.

I’ll join you and steamroll people

this is excellent. look at those cute sad little meds! :)

okay, so I like this but the ‘what anti depressants aren’t’ section is pretty bullshit. 
Side effects are common with meds. The zombie effect is common and discussed frequently by my psychiatrist. Nausea, dizziness and other side effects are really common and do not mean you are on the wrong medication. Sometimes it takes awhile to get used to them or perhaps SSRI’s or SNRI’s don’t work for you. I did not like that line as I felt it was mocking people who do have bad side effects from medication. Yes, I do have and have had side effects and that doesn’t make me weak or a faker, I also am not on the wrong meds - it’s the trade off I have to make for an okayish brain.

Tonight I realised I am not as unfit as I thought. Started off with off skates cardio - LOTS of running and I kept up with tonights coach. 
Did a session called ‘fuck falling’ with lots of tactics to not fall and make your opponent fall in your place. Lots of wall drills, fat controller and trucks. Did a few great things, a few average things and a few terrible things. 
Practiced running on toe stops at full speed while pushing someone snow ploughing as hard as they can.
Got pushed backwards while on toe stops for two laps.

Then we went to the pub for our welcome new team members thing. Only me and Stevie showed up so more fun for us. Bar tab, free beers, takeaway for dinner. It was a fun night. My body hurts now.

Bee Quilt

The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.

The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.

This reminds me of one of my boardgames that I keep in my bag because it’s super portable.

So guise. Last night I got put in a proper derby team. Here is the link to our facebook page. You should, nay, WILL like us, because we are awesome. We’ve got some absolutely brilliant skaters and I am so stoked to have been selected for the team I wanted to be in. More importantly, my derby wife was selected to be on my team!!! So happy to have met and made friends with my wife and even more lucky to have the occasional shift at work. 
I’ve never been picked for a sports team before, and it was pretty great. We got selected and cheered for and after everyone was picked we had mass team hugs and cheers. 
Last night we worked on running on toe stops - you think ballet dancers have it tough? ouuuuch. 
We also did a bit of a scrimmage for half an hour, and I blocked and jammed. I did an alright job at both and blocked thunder with Josh - fell down and got back up while still blocking (and didn’t get a low block penalty). YAAAAS DERBY.
