that’s actually my number one tip for how to support your mentally ill friend/partner/family member, being prepared to repeat yourself a lot. regardless of individual diagnosis almost all of us need people to be patient with us, because there are some facts that might seem evident to you that just won’t stick in our brains, be it “you are a good person deserving of love” or “your medication is working” or “you are not being pursued by demons”. often we are aware that we are having the same conversations over and over and often we feel bad about it. be gentle with us
Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.
Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover

Imagine your OTP grinding against each other.
You may continue.
