Abuse Excuse


My personal blog  

Excuses perpetuate abuse. Learn to let go of yours.
Abuse, identity, neurodiversity, behavioral disorders, PTSD, CPTSD, image/body issues, and anything else relevant and important.




Can’t go over it.

Can’t go under it.

Can’t go around it.

Gotta go through it.

Trying to explain depression or anxiety to someone who’s never experienced it.

This belongs here.

I’m trapped in a body that punishes me for being alive. This isn’t an illness, it’s Hell.

we praise men for the most trivial shit like “omg he buys you pads and chocolate!!!! hubby material!!!” 


Also this sort of attitude makes it seem like doing this sort of thing is a plus but not needed. It teaches girls that they’re lucky to be treated well by men, rather than teaching them that they deserve it.

You know what? My invisible disability IS visible.

It’s visible when I have to wear edema gloves and/or lidocaine patches because my hands are hurting so badly.

It’s visible the five times a day I take a handful of pills, or aspirin, or emergency meds. Whenever I do…

19 #WhyIStayed tweets everyone needs to see

While many cheered the NFL’s move to (finally) punish Rice’s vicious behavior, too many media outlets immediately fell into a tired pattern of victim blaming. 

Writer Beverly Gooden had heard enough. “I was watching the responses to the TMZ on my timeline, and I noticed a trend. People were asking ‘why did she marry him?’ and ‘why didn’t she leave him,’” Gooden told Mic. “When I saw those tweets, my first reaction was shame. The same shame that I felt back when I was in a violent marriage. It’s a sort of guilt that would make me crawl into a shell and remain silent. But today, for a reason I can’t explain, I’d had enough. I knew I had an answer to everyone’s question of why victims of violence stay. I can’t speak for Janay Rice, I can only speak for me.”

Gooden decided to change the conversation. Follow micdotcom

I wonder how long we’ll stay friends on Facebook.

I literally just deleted someone for sharing that picture! Was a coincidence

I don’t work fast food but retail is in a similar class.  Most of my coworkers went to or are going to college.

A lot of them are still living at home because they can’t afford to live on their own, even though most of them work two jobs.

Meanwhile our store manager is the one who would post a sign like this (and she earns well over $15 an hour, let me tell you.)  I guess nobody thought that maybe a manager wrote this sign?

Also a lot of people working retail and service industry jobs don’t have English as a first language or they speak more than one language (which makes spelling confusing)

Also, a lot of these people are trying to further their education but can’t afford it because they can barely afford to live.
