Hey


At least McCrory lost his job.

Semi-open thread for a few days. Anyone with at least one previously approved comment should be able to get through.

Don’t forget to ask for help, if you need it.

    Lots and lots and LOTS of blame to go ’round.

    Haven’t seen any constructive responses yet; don’t have any of my own to offer.

    Apologies, world.

    Just wrapping my head around the ~billion survivors of sexualized violence being reminded that their rapist can do anything.

    Thank you for the list of suicide hotlines. Too bad there is none here I live or is that lived?

    Hi Lilith,

    Thank you for the list of suicide hotlines. Too bad there is none here I live or is that lived?

    I think it’s more that their offices are located in those areas. Any hotline should provide service regardless of where you are.

    This whole election has been triggering and it’s honestly a gut punch today. I was right never to accuse my abusers.
    I am sad and angry and embarrassed and frightened, alternating with numbness, my hands keep losing all feeling.
    Thanks for opening this thread.

    I honestly don’t know what more I could have done. I was in a hospital for multiple months from before the national conventions to well after them. I was living out of the States for the whole election cycle, only visiting for a couple days at a time, and not that many visits – only one in September/October. And my vote itself? Well, as an “Overseas” citizen it is counted in Oregon, which did, in fact, go Clinton. I feel incredibly disempowered.

    Now I don’t want to talk about the election or Trump, but I can’t seem to get my brain anywhere else.

    Yuk.

    Crip Dyke @ # 7: I was in a hospital for multiple months …

    I for one wondered/worried about you – glad to see you back, and hope you’re recovering well!
