IF FOX CANCELS THIS SHOW I AM SO DONE WITH THEM.

One episode in and

A) I am in love

B) this is a gem

In a society filled with dystopian tragedies finally we have a good-natured, humanistic one hour a week television show with heart. So far, one episode in I feel like I…

I love this paper my disability department gave me. The representative also told me to report ANY kind of ableism, even if it seems minuscule to me.
The top three are hard to read so:
Disability accommodations are rights, not special help. (Ask for what you need. Advocate for yourself.)
You are an important and valuable part of campus diversity. (Diversity includes disability.)
College disability services officers can be gatekeepers. (Most are good allies for students, but some are not. Demand professional, individualized, respectful services and file a complaint if you don’t get them.)

How My Chronic Pain Shaped My Views About Abortion —›

I am in absolute LOVE with this show. I was going to talk about it a few weeks ago when I saw the pilot online but I forgot lol. This show really makes the hospital seem cool. It’s not that cool but we make due. If they need a Crohnie character, I’ll definitely play it. I know the show isn’t that realistic but there’s some truth in it. Either way, I’m glad a show like this exists and I think a lot of kids will relate and even some adults. Let me know your thoughts.

I understand why everyone is putting this show down but being in Duke Pediatrics for 6 months means I had these moments. No we didn’t have dance parties on the roof with beer, but we did have weekly movie nights with ice pops and soda. There is a comradery with people in the hospital that you don’t get anywhere else, including online. My friends’ parents were my mom’s friends. You knew the kids that came in all the time and you all had your rooms decorated when you found out they were showing up. You make the best of a situaton and teenagers are no different. xoxo Nicole

This dude messaged me out of nowhere telling me magnesium would cure me, and I (very nicely) just said that wasn’t true even though magnesium is super helpful but thanks for the tip and he sent me this so if this dickhead tried to add you on FB for whatever reason don’t go there

And here we have an example of what happens when men are told “No”
