The funny thing was I was in rural Africa when the sh&t hit the fan at home in Canada and I had to explain to my hosts I may have brought parasites with me...
Really sorry to hear about this. Even the Daily Mail is sympathetic to your cause, tho’ you wouldn’t know it from the headline: “http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3666699/NYC-school-principal-pilloried-having-sex-workers-parents-students-class-keeping-racy-photos-department-laptops-tells-ex-boyfriend-false-claims… Read more
Thank you so much for fighting for your rights and for justice. I’m incredibly sorry this happened to you and that the system failed you so horrifically. You’re incredibly brave, and your work is making the world a safer, better place.
Robert Sofia. It’s an easy name to remember. What an asshole. The PTA president! Boy I want to punch this guy so bad.
I know a guy, a police officer. He dated a fellow officer for a few years. When they broke up in a messy fashion he posted multiple pictures of her on-line. He faced no sanction, but within a year she was essentially forced to quit. He’s still on the job. I’ve heard he considers it vindication.
Your daily reminder that the United States does NOT have a justice system. We have a legal system. And it is callous as fuck. It continues to trample on the dignity of people everywhere. Especially women and minorities. Read more
Your treatment has made me so angry. I’m so sorry this happened to you. You deserve justice, and I know you’ll ace the bar.
I didn’t know the term “revenge porn” until 2014, the year my ex-boyfriend gave stolen photographs of me in my…
Aw thank you, I appreciate that! But no, I havent... when put on the spot, its really hard for me to articulate my thoughts. I have to be in a certain frame of mind to do so. But I do appreciate your comment, thank you again.
Thank you, this was the type of feedback I was looking for! I’m actually in an okay spot right now and have fabulous health insurance so I’m not too worried. In the past I have been in spots where I convince myself I have a terminal illness and then the stress of that makes me have physical manifestations. It’s a big… Read more
This exactly. Crisis centers aren’t the best places to learn how to cope (mine was like a combination of prison and elementary school). Everyone was there for a different reason: schizophrenia to drug addiction to depression and anxiety. Read more
I was in a mental health care facility for two weeks (I also live outside of the U.S., so my healthcare plan covered it, except for the bed fee, which was €2.50 per day). My friends were overwhelmingly supportive and kind. I was shocked at how many people were good to me, offered words of support, no criticism or… Read more
Yep. That’s America. At this point, I’d be happy with just having insurance. I no longer have insurance. It’s been 6 months and I’m mentally deteriorating. I miss having insurance and a therapist.
I will say personally from experience, its admirable to accept and do something about your mental health. It is, and will continue to be a stigma to anyone suffering, regardless of how much light is shed upon the matter. I have personally suffered since I was 12 years old. I have seen several professionals through the… Read more
Sometimes I feel like I’m going crazy (I have depression and anxiety) and I wonder where the line is between staying at home and trying to get through it on my own and needing to go to a facility. Anyone who has ever voluntarily checked them into a mental health facility — what was the “breaking point”?
Christina’s voice is loud but I personally find it grating. Moore’s voice is lovely, and her last album (“Amanda Leigh”) is a underrated gem.
In 2018, Mandy Moore is one of the stars of This Is Us, NBC’s second most-watched television program (behind NFL…
