My blog is almost as big of a mess as my room. Woman of many fandoms, equal rights and anti-bullying/shaming/judgment/descrimination of anything.
"Tips and Tricks"
If the movies scare me, walk out and sit with me.
If I can’t sleep, don’t stay up with me. It makes me feel worse for keeping you up too.
If I don’t want to touch people, back me up. Don’t make me fight the world off by myself.
If I need to hold your hand to feel safe, let me. Don’t make a big deal about it.
If you eat foods that trigger me, don’t encourage me to try them. Don’t make me explain in gross detail how it makes me feel before you’ll back off.
If I tell you no, listen to me. Even if it’s something tiny. Listen.
If I’m okay with something one day, and not the next, don’t point it out. I know I did the thing yesterday. I’m not dumb.
If I freak out over something, remember I’m still healing, and be patient. I will apologize and try to make it better when I stop panicking.
If I cancel plans to be alone in my room, don’t be mad at me. Whatever has made me need to stay in is definitely not something I would choose over time with you voluntarily.
If I cry, let me cry. Sometimes I need to. Don’t ask about it later. I’ll talk about it if I can or want to.
If I worry about you leaving me, don’t think you did anything wrong. You didn’t, I’m just paranoid. It happens.
If I get better, be proud of me. I am working very hard to be good.
