Feel free to reblog personal posts. Apparently people get offended by that.
This blog is intended for personal use. I have the spent the past two years essentially developing a mental illness. In those two measly years, I have had two inpatient hospitalizations plus two more outpatient ones. I've unburied childhood sexual abuse and as a result, been made a monster in the eyes of my family. I have been armed with an arsenal medications and have been branded with Bipolar I Disorder and Borderline Personality Disorder.
Tumblr critics and therapists alike say that we may over identify with our disorders. They warn us to not let them define us. However, mental illness does become part of our definition. While I do not let it limit me, it is a part of my identity. It shapes the way I view inequality. It's given me a voice that I've never had before. I am a nurse and Bipolar Disorder does not hinder my profession. Instead, it helps me identify with the patients other nurses have already given up on.

I didn’t know that. I didn’t watch that season for some reason.
But yeah …for a woman who advocates for all shapes and sizes in the model industry, she seems a bit too eager to make everyone conform.
If Lenox goes home though, I am 100% positive that this cycle is being stacked for a male win.

I lost so much respect for her. I was shocked by behavior. She’s supposed to be this supportive person that advocates for women and she can’t see the problem with this.
People have been uncomfortable with being sexy every cycle. Where did this one and punitive five frames bull shit come from?

Thanks you for the anon positivity. Sometimes I really need it.
Am I the only one INFURIATED with Tyra banks and that 1 she gave Lenox?!!
She’s 19. God forbid she be uncomfortable with her sexuality. She’s a teenager. Sexuality is not something that comes naturally to some. In fact, it can even traumatic. You don’t know Lenox’s life story. How dare you diminish her for being uncomfortable with being PRESSURED in a SEXUAL situation. How the fuck do I get in contact with the show/Tyra so she can be educated.
I get that she “gave up” or whatever but a one was overkill and then on top of that gave her five frames next week. Punishing her for being uncomfortable with herself. Great fucking message Tyra.
I had to increase my seroquel back to its normal dose. A few days without it and I completely lose it.
I spent two days unable to move, crying, researching suicide ideas, and writing multiple drafts of a suicide note.
…. I just feel like a complete failure that a measly 150 mg of seroquel brought me to the brink of death …yet again.
