maybe i’m not in full control and that’s what’s bothering me more than anything these days. A reckless dunce moving forward at breakneck speed, trapped in a noose by the world’s creation, it’s all the world’s doing, never mine own. Bless these people, bless me among their refuse and shitheaps. These standards never made much sense. But still, it’s not unusual to imagine that I am unwittingly entrenched deep in their world, saturated still by those same strange standards. I’m surely affected by those all-too-real, make-believe forces that guide the feelings we have for one another. Pleases, Thank yous, Pardon Me Ma’ams. 

Manners are meant for humanity. And my luck being just the same as it’s always been, I’m feeling strikingly less human the more and more moments keep their momentum.

This feeling is much more like that of Grendel than Beowulf and maybe that’s going to be my downfall. Moving into a beasts being, instead of being as i was born, human and nice. Cause all that this feeling- thoughtful, misplaced and misunderstood- has ever seemed to lead to is your unrighteous body left ditched and half-forgotten in a marsh and your head on some king’s wall.

I may be losing my mind, but at least I still look human.

Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes?  That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood.  Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.

except that the funding is sent to the dept of education, who mismanages the funding and sends it to wherever they please. if you want to help education, one way to do it is to stop removing the money from those communities amd provide a tax credit or stipend to families to give their children the option to pursue the best education in their interest in the community. school choice is huge.

Seizure First Aid. 

Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it. 

100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)

You never know when you could need this, this happened during a marching band rehearsal to one of our members. It was really scary, but if we had known this, it might’ve been a bit less scary.

Do not call 911 unless the seizure lasts over 5 minutes. Ambulances are expensive and usually unnecessary. If there is a person with the one having a seizure who is family or friend, do not call an ambulance unless they tell you to.

My mother has seizures. She’s had them 15 years or so. There is nothing that a doctor or paramedic can do for her that we don’t already know.

Always support the head and neck and if you can make sure that the person experiencing the seizure is not mindlessly slapping hard surfaces, but do not hold them down. This is for grand mal seizures which are very physical. In petit mal seizures, you don’t always see the violent physical reactions, but be mindful all the same of the physical space they are in.

When a person comes out they are often very confused or may become emotional. Be supportive and don’t leave them until they indicate to you that it’s okay. Ask them who you can call, and then do so. Explain to the caretaker in terms of how long the seizure was and what happened. Stay with the person who seized until someone comes or they are physically able to be okay. Offer to get them water or something to drink. Dual events for seizures can happen, so it’s important to stay nearby just in case until all risk is gone.

All of this above but if you know the person does not have seizures normally call for an ambulance.
