An announcement thing!

Since it is now October I can reveal that my Big Project this month is to launch a local zine in print called Take Care, focusing on ways to take care of yourself during illness, recovery and times of emotional stress. I’m hoping to release one a month for six months, and I’d like to release my first one in stores around the Brighton area by October 31st. I’ll also be curating a tumblr over at @takecarezine, which will mostly be reblogs of stuff I find on my research and internet travels, but that won’t be active until November.

I’ve been planning this for a couple of months, and I’m excited to learn about curating and publishing something myself, even if it is just something small like this. I hope it goes well - you’ll probably see an increase in self-care/wellbeing nerdery on my blog as I do more research. I need to learn how to give advice as well as what advice to give, so I’ll be doing a lot of reading as well as a lot of writing. If anybody has a topic they think I should cover, or even a contribution you’d like to make (even those of you across the pond), please let me know - it can be an article about your experiences, an introduction to your favourite hobby, a recipe for your favourite cake/tea/soap, or anything that makes you feel good. All advice is also welcome, just drop me an ask.

So, fingers crossed, this time next month I’ll be releasing the first issue!

AFI - Malleus Maleficarum (Black Sails In The Sunset)

Breathe in the life of the summer’s death
As the orange and red breathe their first breath
So welcome as they’re burning through
We all begin to burn
Autumn’s flame dance’s in my eyes

if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.

it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them. 

what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors? 

If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.

This culture of “save the tatas” even goes as far as the doctor’s offices themselves. Most doctors request that the husband be present during surgical consultations, as though he has an equal say in the patient-professional discussion.

If the woman is single, as was my case, doctors have actually recommended postponing surgery until she finds a relationship, because “it could be nearly impossible to find someone who accepts it [your unnatural tatas] in years to come”. 

I’m 15 months post-mastectomy, and the date I had this past week was the first time since then that a guy hadn’t reacted negatively to my scars. The relief was so overwhelming that I was fighting back tears. When I told him —essentially warning him that my body wasn’t what he must be expecting — I felt so guilty; it seemed to have the same weight and shame as telling someone I had some sort of an incurable STI or a felony record.

I shouldn’t have felt that way. I should not be ashamed of choosing to live. 

Thank you for your important commentary! I hope you find someone who can love you for who you are and admire your strength as a survivor.

holy shit this just makes me so immensely disgusted and i actually feel sick to the core??? just. holy shit.

"

I.
When I was trying to quit smoking
and we drank white wine from Mason jars,
you called my freckles cocoa powder
and I called your green eyes
celery.

II.
I am learning how to be a grown-up
who pays bills, cooks her own meals,
and doesn’t cry at words like
I think I just want to be friends.

III.
The truth is this:
Love is an organic thing.
It rots and softens.
