hey fun fact having disability accommodations isnt like having a free pass to sit on your ass. guess what for all the things you cant do due to your disability they generally have you make up for them by picking up slack in other places. people with disability accommodations work just as hard as anyone else they just might do slightly different things. please dont claim that disabled people are lazy ok thats some serious bullshit

"News broke yesterday that nude photos of Jennifer Lawrence had been “leaked” online. The truth is they were stolen. They were hacked from her personal technology. They were posted online without her consent. This is a crime. And possibly worst of all, this is something women are supposed to expect… We live in a society where women’s bodies are a commodity to be sold, whether they agree to it or not. And some of the same people who complain about the NSA or Facebook invading their personal privacy will be the same people searching and spreading around these photos."

Sinead O'Connor's Fibromyalgia

ifihavethespoons:

the end of this article took a serious turn for the uninformed.

"The term Fibromyalgia means severe pain in muscles and joints that has no known cause. If a cause is found the patient is given some other diagnosis such as Lyme disease or an auto-immune disease. If you suffer from severe, persistent pain in multiple muscles and joints, your doctor will order a large number of tests to rule out all of the known causes. If all of the tests come back normal, your doctor should tell that there is no known reason for your pain, but most doctors don’t do that. They prefer to tell you that you have fibromyalgia, which just means that there is no explanation for your pain and no specific treatment. They do the same thing with people who are exhausted. When doctors can’t find a cause for extreme fatigue, they call it chronic fatigue syndrome, which means that they don’t know why you are so tired."

i don’t know where these people get their information.  it boggles the mind.

She was misdiagnosed as Bipolar, turns out it was PTSD
