Flashback Friday! In honor of San Diego ComiCon, here is my mom’s old Super Friends lunchbox, copyright DC Comics Inc. 1976. It’s sturdy, has dimension, and super freaking awesome! They don’t make them like this anymore.
I always look at people totally weird when they come up to me with unsolicited advice on how to lose weight and treat my acne. As if right away they assume I’ve never heard of face wash or smear fried chicken on my face. (Seriously, I’ve had people tell this to me) Yeah, I’m in my late 20s and my face is broken out almost all the time but that doesn’t mean I eat tons of grease/sugar/soda or that my face is dirty or that I haven’t tried everything I could afford to clear it up. And I do not wear a lot of makeup that covers the acne unless I’m performing/taking pictures because even the sensitive skin products make me break out, it’ll be a cycle of covering break outs. Since my face is is always a red color matching the rest of me it makes foundation shopping a nightmare. I needed three representatives from Mary Kay to help me with this problem.
The weight thing I can change (on my own, for me, in my time) but the face, not so much. I enjoy my clearer days, I shrug off the bad days, and have come to terms with all of it. Most of the time I don’t feel too bad about my appearance cos I know I rock and when I’m down about my looks I still exude confidence, that’s all that matters.

Made this after the thought of Toxicity by System of a Down considered an “old” song sank in.
Some of my paintings/drawings. Posted for possible display at a night gallery.
I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.
"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it.
In case someone needs to see this
Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light
STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!
I need this
I’ve used some of these and they really do help! Reblogging forever simply because this could help save someone
always, ALWAYS REBLOG THIS. It is so important and you have no idea if someone browsing your blog needs it.
HUGE part of my therapy when I was a teen was having alternatives. I used to cut words and sentences into my skin until my mom bought me a blank cloth doll, I would sew words into the doll instead. I stopped carving words into myself in 2006. I had a bad relapse last year due to postpartum depression where I stabbed myself repeatedly with something sharp but despite all the times I really want to harm myself I have to remind myself it’s not worth the scars or the pain, what I’m going through can be worked out and is not permanent. I can do better with the anguish I have in me, it can be used for the good and as a pathway to something better. God (and the healing miracles of Mederma) was kind and the word scars are gone, all of them! I cannot afford to make more. I have a second chance at a blank slate, I’ll keep the remaining scars I have to not have anymore.
