If you command me to do something that I was already planning on doing the chances of me doing that thing automatically drop to zero

Please SIGNAL BOOST this and help me out tumblr. This is to help me be able to live my life safely, healthily, and as the person I know I am. I am 22 years old and living in NC, United States. I am genderqueer/non binary. I have not identified as simply female for many years. And the anxiety, discomfort, and dysphoria I experience can be almost crippling on some days. I need to start therapy soon for my health’s sake. And in the future I badly want top surgery. I have been in a situation most of my life where I am on my own. I have to take care of myself. I do not like having to ask for this kind of help from anyone. I work as hard as I can and have no problem with that, but with the cost of things such as medical bills, especially for someone living in the US without insurance to cover it, I need help. So please go here http://www.gofundme.com/68apj8 and donate whatever you can. Spread the word. Share the page and reblog this. And thank you to anyone who helps, because you are helping me be able to start really living my life again after years of struggle.
So I’m being very domestic today. Laundry, dishes, vacuumed. And now I’m taking a whole bunch of old t shirts and cutting them into new stuff. I’ll be entertained for while at least and come out of it with new stuff to wear while working out/messing around.
“Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”
Shut up already.
And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection.
As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…
A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier. Her dad has ALS. The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.
This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp. And they did. She posted pics.
So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill.Capitalism is inhumane.
