So. I had no idea about this app until I went into my doctor and he told me about it.
LISTEN UP. THIS APP. THIS SHIT RIGHT HERE IS SERIOUSLY A BLESSING. ESPECIALLY TO ANYONE WITH FINANCIAL PROBLEMS (which is kind of everyone now). THIS IS NOT INSURANCE THOUGH. BUT IT WILL HELP YOU OUT. DOWNLOAD THIS APP RIGHT NOW. NO. STOP READING. DOWNLOAD IT.
This app allows you to input the prescription you have, select your dose, and then find a place near you (or your own pharmacy) with the cheapest price. Then you click “get code/coupon/discount card,” show that to the pharmacist, and THERE YOU GO. SAVING YOU SOME CASH TO GET YOURSELF A WELL DESERVED DRINK, CANDY BAR, DATE MONEY, SEX TOY CASH, OR GO BUY YOURSELF A HAMSTER AND NAME HIM STARLORD WITH THE EXTRA MONEY.
No, but in all seriousness. This app is saving my ass right now.
I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life.
this really helped me out when i didn’t have insurance. like, being able to spend only $8 on meds that normally would’ve cost me $100+ is incredible.
there is a very good compilation of gender neutral pronouns in a variety of different languages that can be found here! it’s really helpful and a lot of thought and help has gone into it from people who speak these as their native language! i definitely recommend you go check it out
A while ago someone asked to see a close up photo of my eyes.. Does this count? :P
Emma Watson’s tweet about leaked pictures x
it’s nice to see her speaking out about this but the empathy thing is gross and ableist.
empathy =/= concern or a sense of morality. :/
The thing is, “empathy” can mean multiple things. People are rarely clear about which they are using, and this causes general confusion and a lot of harm to autistic people.
- It can mean being able to work out what someone else is thinking (this is generally the meaning in scientific contexts, and is called cognitive empathy)(it also fails across basically any brain, cultural or other difference, people are shit at figuring out what neurodivergent people and foreign people are thinking)
- It can mean feeling an emotion because someone around you does (this is called emotional contagion, or affective empathy)
- ^Those two are the two that some disabled people have difficulties with.
- And it can also mean giving a fuck about other people’s feelings. When people use it colloquially, they usually use it as a synonym for sympathy. This is a valid use of the word, contextually correct, and it generally doesn’t mean the first two meanings at all.
Emotional contagion would actually be really odd (in the sense that Emma watson is clearly using here, i.e. consideration for other people’s feelings) in some situations, there’s a line between understanding that Jennifer Lawrence is probably feeling violated and humiliated, and actually feeling those things because she is. And that’s a different thing to caring that she feels those things.
TL:DR: The word empathy has many possible meanings, some of which would be ableist in this context, but the usage is pretty clear, and I don’t think its ableist.
Empathy can mean concern or a sense of morality.
Been trying something new with my coffee this fall.
It’s September aka Pumpkin Spice season so IM BRINGIN IT BACK. Except it got brought back in like July because ya’ll are nuts.
