Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome
If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it.
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance.
And people ask me why I am afraid to use my cane in public.
Being disabled, visibly so is always dangerous
When I got my first cane and posted about it, I had people demanding to know why I thought I “deserved” it at my age.
That was the word.
This is the kind of bullshit that made my dad, a man who dealt with crippling pain from degenerative disc disorder, afraid to apply for handicapped parking
I remember saying to him that he could get handicapped plates and hearing him say that it wasn’t “bad enough” as I watched him wince and hobble as he walked from the back of the parking lot
People internalize these ideas, even handicapped people, that’s why this is so fucking important
this is the strongest vine I ever seen
I have watched this at least 15 times since I reblogged this several hours ago
Check it out, everyone! New color as of today, red violet courtesy of Supercuts at Emory Village ♥ It didn’t get quite as much purple tint in it as I would have liked, but I’m more than a little fond of the outcome.
Note the section that’s really super-red-violet? That’s where my bleached-blonde streak (also done at the same Supercuts by the same stylist) was prior to this morning’s trip out.
Awww, thank you! I am still about a million kinds of impressed with myself for last year’s NaNo, and I may try it again this year. It kind of depends on me not working six days a week (even if I keep the doubles) but hopefully I’m going down to five again soon.
Thank you again, anon

Went to Target with my beloved Apollymi after we got off work around 9:30 Wednesday. While browsing through Halloween stuff we turned a corner… and walked right into the Christmas department.
Christmas shit already. It’s barely October. Fuck, Halloween is still an entire 29 days away. Thanksgiving isn’t even registering to most people yet. And still, the motherfucking Christmas decorations are already out.
I keep saying it, and I’m calling it right now: within the next three years, that shit’s gonna go up right after July 4th.
Can you believe they call us criminals when he’s assaulting us with that haircut?
