— BLOG CHANGE

nicolioioiosis:

Hi everyone! As you know, I haven’t been on this blog for a while cause I’m normally busy on another blog. So, I figure it would be better if I moved to a side blog so I can still post my personal things/posts I like without having to do constant switching.

Follow me here! But please beware that it’s under construction.

I know I’ve told this story before, but my abusive ex refused to let me take birth control. I was on the pill until he found them in my purse.

I went to the Student Health Center—they were completely unhelpful, choosing to lecture me about the importance of safe sex (recommending condoms) instead of actually listening to my problem.

Then I went to Planned Parenthood. The Nurse Practitioner took one look at my fading bruises and stopped the exam. She called in the doctor. The doctor came in and simply asked me: “Are you ready to leave him?” When I denied that I was being abused, she didn’t argue with me. She just asked me what I needed. I said I need a birth control method that my boyfriend couldn’t detect. She recommended a few options and we decided on Depo.

When I told her that my boyfriend read my emails and listened to my phone messages and was known to follow me, she suggested to do the Depo injections at off hours when the clinic was normally closed. She made a note in my chart and instructed the front desk never to leave messages for me—instead, she programmed her personal cell phone number into my phone under the name “Nora”. She told me she would call me to schedule my appointments; she wouldn’t leave a message, but I should call her back when I was able to.

And that was it. No judgment. No lecture. She walked me to the door and told me to call her day or night if I needed anything. That she lived 5 blocks from campus and would come get me. That I wasn’t alone. That she just wanted me to be safe.

I never called her to come to my rescue. But I have no doubt that she would have come if I had called. She kept me on Depo for a year, giving me those monthly injections in secret, helping me prevent a desperately unwanted pregnancy.

I cannot thank Planned Parenthood enough for the work they do.

— Burkaaaaaaa AVENGER

So I’m watching the first episode of Burka Avenger, and I have to say it really is as much social justice-y goodness as I hoped. First of all, the hero is a school teacher by day, avenger at night. I was a little tentative about her because I’ve been taught “BURKA BAD” but she wears the burka only when she’s a hero and normal clothes as a teacher. I like this outfit change because it not only states that women can wear what they want, but also that a burka does not have to represent oppression (also a burka is a pretty sweet way to hide your identity).

Listen y’all. If you don’t follow this talented young lady, you’re missing out on one of the most talented teenagers I have had the honor of writing with. She’s an RPer now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she became a published author while still in school. You need to follow her and see her go from talented Terra RPer to bestselling novelist.

Also, just wondering if anyone has any input on how to be a good friend to someone who is in the hospital for mental health? 

Thanks!

Yes! I mean, it’s really important to do this based on what your friend wants, but when I was in the hospital, this is what I wanted/appreciated:

1) In the mental hospital, your phone is taken away. So find out the phone number of their unit and call them! Talk about anything they want. Patients either want to talk about what’s happening in the hospital or want to hear what’s going on in real life. Just don’t say you’re busy and hang up, as having someone to depend on during that time is crucial.

2) Ask if you can visit them. I don’t know the legal matters of seeing them if they’re a minor, but anyone can visit a legal adult as long as the patient consents to it. Hugs are always appreciated.

3) Bring stuff for them. Make sure it’s allowed in the hospital (you’d be surprised at what is confiscated) but things like books, photos, stuffed animals, or just something like a handmade card can really help.

4) Even if you can’t visit, drop things off for them. Food sucks at hospitals, but patients are allowed to have personal snacks (seriously, patients trade candy the way drugs are dealt, everyone wants food while there.) Also ask if they need any essentials. Sweats and slip on shoes are hospital staples that some people may not have had time to pack.
