Trying to explain to Rin why we can’t say ‘fuck it’ and become a Disney face character.

The auditions are going to Leeds so she really wants to go.

Anyone know where you would logically go if you’d tried sertraline and citalopram and neither had worked for you?

My doctors don’t seem to know what they’re doing so I’d like to give them an idea as to what med we could try next (for anxiety mainly)

Just a tip: I can’t do sympathy, I really cant. if I see you being thick, I don’t sympathise, I just point out you’re being an idiot. I only sympathise when I see you have no choice.

And I really don’t care if that attitude offends you and you stop talking to me because of it.

I’m done pretending to care when I just don’t.

hexeghost said: heads up - the BBC don't make bake off in house. it's made by love productions. i used to work at the post house where they edited it, and honestly i don't even think the editing was at all intended to make diana villainous - it was clear to me that iain was being a hot-headed jerk.

Thank you for informing me of the editing company. However if you look at it there are things that point to her being villainous - very obviously so. Maybe because you used to work in the environment it is lost on you, but to the average joe, the editing was very manipulative, and here’s why:

1. She goes to the freezers and says “whose is that?” to which people reply “it’s iain’s”

2. It’s edited so that time is announced as passing very quickly as the group start making their meringues.

3. Diana has a close up the one shot before Iain asks about his ice cream - they may even overlap. Obviously pointing her to be the perpetrator and him the victim.

4. His little puppy dog look of ‘why did you take it out of the freezer?’ instantly makes us all feel sorry for him.

5. Her quip of ‘well you have your own freezer don’t you?’ Everyone immediately thinks - ‘oh you bitch’. Because it single handedly makes her the bad guy because she’s not seen as sympathetic, but now sarcastic - the direct opposite of most of the audience. Therefore, she is seen as the villain of the piece because she directly opposes the viewer’s morales.

6. Finally (after Iain was an idiot and stormed out) Her close up - once again making us focus on her. She knows he’s overreacted and so wears a slightly judgemental expression, but because the audience now sympathises with Iain it further paints her as the criminal.

It IS very clever editing and was definitely played out as a very obvious narrative, playing off the audience’s sympathies to add drama. You cannot say it wasn’t edited to make Diana look villainous because, if it hadn’t been like that, people would not have painted her as the villain and given further abuse to those  who tried to defend her.

Why were we so annoyed at Bingate? Victim Blaming (TW for mild mentions of SA)

Ok, I’ve looked into this whole bingate thing and it is the BBCs fault. Not Diana’s, Not Iain’s. The BBC.

They have edited this to look worse than it is.

The cake was not out for as long as it was made out to be (under a minute) not half an hour.

However, Diana still should not have done it/ should have at least told him about it or moved it. Some freezers were broken so no, Diana, he did not have his own freezer.

However, the way the BBC has edited this has made a lot of people outraged, but I think the reason people are outraged has been missed even by the people who are being angry. But as a survivor of sexual assault, I think I may have figured it out.

Iain was made to be the victim, and then he got kicked out.

The BBC made it look like victim blaming.

Victim blaming.

Do you see why we are all annoyed? Because we are getting reports through - in the UK - of victim blaming happening within our own police force about young girls and boys being abused in Rotherham and their stories being dismissed in the same week it happened.

We have just been exposed to Ferguson and Mike Brown.

Russia is invading the Ukraine and making out it is their fault for fighting back.

In our news coverage, the UK is finally becoming aware of victim blaming and how serious a problem it is.

So, when that episode aired and Iain was made to look the victim by this evil force many subconsciously saw the events we have just been exposed to, so they lost it.

I know, personally, that when I saw Iain get knocked out I was reminded of my own experience where no one believed what I said and I was made to feel (by my abusers) it was my own fault, even though I had no control over my situation at the time. I was reminded of all the children in Rotherham who, like me, had had no one believe their stories and had been made to feel inferior due to our lives being ruined by something we could not control.

So, because  that incident triggered off those memories I was extremely angry and found myself caring more than I should about some stupid cooking show. I even thought ‘that’s karma for you’ when I found out she had been in an accident and, I must say, I am completely appalled at myself. It is not karma, she did not deserve that. Maybe a soggy bottom and getting kicked out next week, but it is only cake.

But, it was the way the BBC cleverly manipulated to footage to make it look like victim blaming that annoyed us.

So, every brit that got annoyed over bingate, just think of this in a wider light.

You can no longer blame a woman for her rape because of what she was wearing. You can no longer defend the police of Ferguson because they shouldn’t have been protesting in the first place’.

Because you blamed Diana and, well, he shouldn’t have put in her freezer to begin with, should he? If he had just put it somewhere else, it never would have happened.

Every Brit who was annoyed this week should take a good long look at themselves and think about WHY they were so annoyed, and how they should feel when victim-blaming shows up any where else in our daily lives.

I am very sorry Diana has received the hate she has and that I, and my friends, were part of it for a while. The BBC made us see our abusers in her and I am so sorry I let my triggered and angry self run away with her feelings.

But, if Diana sees this somehow - which I doubt but if she does - I want her to know that I have the same disability she now has. I cannot taste anything and my sense of smell is damaged also. But, I am still a very good chef and I bake often so it is not the end of the world and you can still continue to do what you love.

I hope her recovery has been going well and I am so sorry about the way my country has reacted. She should seriously consider contacting the BBC and forcing them to issue her an apology because she does not deserve her hate.

We should be angry at criminals and rapists and the people who blame the victims of those horrible men and women, not an old lady who took ice cream out of a freezer.

 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE

so that’s the function of a rubber duck

Can I also say that this is a great revision technique, and a good way of figuring out what’s happening/ what has happened when dealing with anxiety and dissociation. Not only to a rubber duck, but describe your subject/ thing think you’re dealing with to the inanimate object. Like that thing It typed out onto Tumblr last night, when I’m in the inside world I explain what’s happening to this little toy I have that Henry gave me (it’s shaped like an apple) and it really helps. I’ve also seen Scarlet talking to her kitty toy, and Miku talking to her dolls trying to figure out what happened when they can’t remember something.

I recently got asked in anon what the traits/characteristics are in BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder/Emotional Regulation Disorder)
So I decided to make a post instead. I think will be good awareness. Here are the 9 main symptoms:

1. Frantic efforts to avoid, extreme fears, or certain…

Reading through this, its very easy to see why DID gets mistaken for BPD and why some psychs think DID doesn’t exist and is just BPD but, can I just say that as an alter with BPD in a DID system, the identity confusion experienced within BPD is not the same as switching to another alter when part of a DID system. I have a very unstable sense of self, but it not the same as the identity alteration present within DID. But there are a lot of overlapping symptoms between the two disorders.
