Stuff you'll find here: my PTSDiaries and some futile attempts to chronicle and cope with all my trauma using humor and an abundance of sass, the bloodstains of my undeniably liberal heart, Merwholock gifs, drugged up late night philosophical musings and someone who will always listen or try to help or spontaneously become your friend, whatever it is you need.PTSD Self Care Mental Illness Personal Ask me anything Submit
The most genuinely terrifying villain from any season of Buffy was Warren. Because warren wasn’t a demon, Warren was just a straight white dude with an ego problem and no respect for women. Warren is scary because I interact with him on a daily basis in real life.

I have an interview tomorrow, and since I kind of just fell into my current job, this is my first actual real job interview since I left UMass two years ago. I’ve been so nervous today that I’ve only been able to keep down tea and a piece of chocolate but I’m also kind of excited :) wish me luck!!
PTSD/Social Anxiety Tip: it really helps you to eventually stop needing to avoid triggering or panic-inducing situations if you practice owning your time and space. Instead of waiting to leave class until you’re on the verge of a panic attack, get up to go to the bathroom for a while just to remind yourself you can. I literally carry packets of tea around in my wallet, and a couple of times a week I’ll stop whatever I’m doing and go find some hot water and make tea. Sometimes it’s ridiculous to do depending on where I am, but with the absurdity comes this weird feeling of peace because I know that I belong to myself and my surroundings don’t own me, because even if my environment dictates otherwise, I can choose to be a weirdo and make some tea and create my own peace
To deal with my phone anxiety/stutter I’ve been taking a billion customer surveys a day until I can get comfortable on the phone, and I’m proud to say that I just had a whole conversation with someone from Home Depot that sounded totally normal :)
