The Myopic Mirror

I'm Claire from MN and WA. My selfies etc. I'm a white queer femme with SPD and PTSD and chronic illness. I'm a survivor and i process that on here a lot. I used to blog a lot of vintage erotica, and the archive for that is here: Vintage erotica I currently tag most common trigger warnings, just let me know if you want me to tag anything, I want to make people feel as safe as possible!

they may not appreciate the thing on your shoulders to it’s fullest extent

But maybe I can start getting the punk scene into victorian capelets and by the time you get to olympia, it’ll be all the rage.

you should just wear this all of the time, it’s gorgeous

Thanks, I safety pinned this giant  victorian scarf my aunt gave me into a capelet because I was bored with all my cardigans. 

Trying to decide if I should waste this glorious outfit on punk show nerds.

Before AO3 I would painstakingly copy fanfiction chapter by chapter into a word doc before trips. My life is so much easier now

people who stigmatize self diagnosis dont seem to understand that diagnosing mental illness is not an exact science. essentially all u do to diagnose someone with a mental illness is look at a list of criteria and say “yup they fit these…

"I have self diagnosed PTS-"

Stop, no stop please.
You’re making a mockery of people who already suffer from mental illnesses.

I had to wait a few months to see someone for a diagnosis but when I went in they checked the same stuff I looked at when diagnosing myself. It was pretty obvious, you don’t need a medical degree to get that nightmares + flashbacks + avoidance of triggers + depression + severe anxiety = probable PTSD all of the symptoms started pretty soon after the traumatic event and were severe enough that I basically stopped functioning. Getting a diagnosis changed nothing and if I’d waited until I could see a professional to get diagnosed I would have been really stalled in my recovery. As it was I was able to find community, join (free) support groups and find the best therapist for me.
Basically self-diagnosis is awesome and we should support everyone who struggles with mental illness without this ridiculous gatekeeping.
