Call Out For Help From the Hard of Hearing & Deaf Community

nuestrahermana:

Hey Folks,

I recently got a message from a follower of mine who is 25 years of age and recently became hard of hearing.
They are looking for resources and blogs for those who have become hard of hearing or deaf at about their age.
They would like some suggestions and support!
Please signal boost this and reblog with suggestions or send them directly to my inbox.

Thank you so much!

Bringing this back because there is only one actual response. Please signal boost, it would be much appreciated!

This Bridge Called My Back - Writings by Radical Women of Color
I don’t care what gender studies or queer theory class you’ve taken, you need to read this book, but be warned, it is a rare find and might expensive. It contains several essays by womanists discussing their experience, racism, poverty, how racism pervaded the feminist movement in the early 1980s and most importantly the individual experiences of asian pacific, black, american indian and latina/chicana women. This words you find in this book and the truths that will make your soul sick are imperrative for understanding the history of racism, feminism, systematic oppression and white privilege. These are stories that have, even today, been swept under the rug and out of sight. 
You need to read this fucking book. 

PDF version downloadable here.

PDF!!!

I’ve read it, but adding this to the reading list anyway.


For one of my followers who was searching for it!

it is for me the eventual truth 
of that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile 
it is that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile 
wanna feel my heart break if it must break in your jaws 
want you to lick my blood off your paws 
you can’t get her fast enough
I will swim to you
whether you save you me 
whether you savage me 
want my last look to be the moon in your eyes 
want my heart to break if it must break in your jaws 
want you to lick my blood off your paws 
it is for me the eventual truth 
it is that look of the lioness to her man across the Nile
and you can’t get here fast enough
I will swim to you

Guess whose home though? And now it’s time to try and get this little babe to recover.

The Flaming Lips // Do You Realize??

Do you realize 
That you have the most beautiful face?
Do you realize 
We’re floating in space?
Do you realize 
That happiness makes you cry?
Do you realize 
That everyone you know someday will die?

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes…. 

If you’re a blog reader of mine and want to ask me personal questions, please do so off of anon.
Today I’m far too fragile for that.

Extreme Private Eros: Love Song 1974

(Source: throwherinthewater)

I’m on my phone so…. So, I can’t put this under the cut. So lots of sad shit & emotional stuff so please skip if that’s too much for you.

………………………………

I feel like I’m really fucking losing it. I’m crying a ton. Deep, deep it hurts so intensely in my heart painful crying that leaves me feeling maybe a tiny bit less of the pain.
I have several moments that are alright, that I’m trying my best to keep the feelings at bay and be present in the moment but it keeps coming back regardless of what I do.
I’m trying to be healthy and not trigger myself but it’s like endless deep in my soul sadness, fear, pain, and sorrow.
I keep going from anxiety that has me shaking, my heart racing, unable to sleep, unable to eat properly, to the crying that is so intense.
It feels like a part of me has been ripped apart.
I’ve been on and off like this for a bit now.
I keep telling myself it’s going to pass and I’m going to feel back to normal but damn, am I just lying to myself?
There has been a lot that has happened recently and I am left feeling like a ghost of myself.

It feels so scary because while I’m used to dealing with physical pain, illness….. this extreme emotional stuff is….. almost unbearable.

I don’t know what else to say but that I’m scared of how intense this is and what it means/what it’s trying to say to me.

I just need to get through this.

I just can’t keep feeling like this.

I just can’t keep feeling like this.

Did you know you can regrow several things including lettuce?
First picture, the end of a romaine lettuce sprouting after several days in shallow water. It will get transplanted to get nutrients from soil as well.
Second picture, a CARNIVOROUS octopus plant :] It eats flying creatures and drinks only distilled water. Needs higher temps as well. Really frickin cool.

Today has been pretty rough. 
We had to leave Brian at the vet because he’s super sick. He hasn’t been eating for 3 days and sleeping too much.
Today, we found out he lost 50% of his body weight in about 4 days time. 
I hope he’s alright but it feels so strange to come home and not have his presence in the house. 
Please send prayers, good energy, positive thoughts.
