Mental Health Awareness Week from October 5-11
Even mermaids can have a mental illness, for a mermaid has no tears and therefore suffers so much more.
I’m that one person out of every five who has an invisible illness. I’m a suicide survivor. These are two reasons why I chose to per-sue Counseling Psychology in college. It’s also why I wanted to become a mermaid; not just to make myself happy, but to make others happy as well. Help raise awareness for mental illness by sharing this post.
Know that you are not alone.
The other evening I was watching Silent Witness on tv and my mom said the actor who plays Dr. Cunningham (aka Tom Ward) surely was one of the doctors on Doctor Who.
So I told her that no, the docrtor she was thinking about has been played by David Tennant, but that yes, Tom Ward recalls him a lot, esthetically.
Put aside that she kept saying that Tom Ward was actually a doctor in Docrot Who, a thought came into my mind, and so I tried to see if I could have seen right.
Watching carefully Tom Ward, I said he might have been a mix of David Tennant and Matthew Bellamy (for who dosn’t know, respectively the tenth Doctor and the lead voice of Muse, the band)
So, here it is the experiment I did.
But then I though “hey, how could look a man that would be a mix of all of these three beautiful men?!”
And so I tried another experiment.
Well… Don’t hate me ok? But actually, what do you think of this? XD
I grew up within a strict religious dogma that taught me my body was a temple. My body is not a temple.
I grew up in a culture that told me certain dress sizes dictate your physical attractiveness. My body is not ugly.
In high school I was told that my breasts and how they looked in certain clothing was “a distraction.” My body, just because it exists, is not a distraction.
I belong to a gender that is treated as a prize for sexual conquest. I am not a prize. I am not an object. My body DOES, however, exist for sex and pleasure and fulfillment: my own.
"you say you’re a woman but you’re really a man right?"
"if i, a man, date you, does that make me gay?"
"if you’re a woman why don’t you shave more?"
"but you voice act male characters, how can you be female?"
"so what genitals do you have?"
But are you paying attention to what’s going on??? My heart is so heavy….. so heavy…
An attorney for the family of John Crawford III, the man fatally shot by police in an Ohio Walmart store, says surveillance video contradicts the police department’s version of events. Officers say Crawford refused to drop the pellet gun he was holding, but the video allegedly shows them gunning him down “on sight.”
Crawford, 22, was shopping at the Beavercreek, Ohio store on Aug. 5 whenpolice responded to another customer’s report that Crawford was carrying an AR-15 rifle. He was actually holding a pellet air rifle he had just picked up from a shelf in the store’s toy department.
Attorney Michael Wright says he viewed surveillance video that shows Crawford was facing away from the cops and talking to his girlfriend on the phone when police spotted him, and didn’t have the toy gun raised. Hetold WDTN Crawford probably didn’t see or hear the officers before he was shot.
"John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,"Wright said, according to Reuters.

You know that feeling when you want to say someting good to someone you like and who’s terribly down but you have no idea what to say and how to say and how not to sound weird and then you end up saying nothing at all?
I hate that feeling.
I’ve been nominated by hobbitscoot and I nominate now utabay, aliceramone, theolddictionary and dreamboatqueeen.
I hope you won’t find this video too long and boring, but I wanted to spread some actual awareness about what the ALS (SLA in italian) is, and I did it in my way, since I have not the knowledge and skills to explain it medically corretcly and stuff.
Please check all these links and donate to the research. I know the economic crisis is marching all over the world, and I myself won’t be able to donate much, but please do it!
Also please whatch these videos, they might help you understand what ALS really is:
