A couple of weeks ago now I wrote a post about Georgia and their new abortion Laws. One comment I made about that post was about, I felt a little like why was I writing the post. Because the people who already get that PP, especially, don’t just do abortions. It is, in fact, one of the smaller services that they perform/provide. Reading some peoples’s “ideas” about PP you’d think PP is having women coming in and out a revolving door, that never ends, and it’s all PP do. It’s just not true. But you can’t tell them this, they don’t want to know.
My mum and I have conversations like that all the time. Where we are talking to each other, but get annoyed at others who just don’t “get it”.
We both love Russell Brand, he’s such an interesting human being and we’ve only just recently discovered that he has a podcast and of course, it’s amazing. I can’t remember who he was talking too, but he was talking to a teacher of psychology. The teacher was saying that in the last 5 years he has noticed a huge increase in psychology students getting notes from their local Doctors, about how they don’t have to do any public speaking. He said that about 5 years ago, there might be one or two…if that…Now it’s nearly half the class.
They were talking about as the generations come along, they are becoming weaker, and on some level I do agree. I also do blame social media for it as well though. I even blame people like myself. My brother apparently know gets anxiety issues sometimes, and I wonder if it’s because of me. Then I tell myself, it probably is and it makes me so angry because everyone keeps telling me to step up for him. No, I had figure it out for myself what triggers me, what my problems really are. If he really has it, then literally no one else can figure it out, but himself. I should not step up. Doesn’t mean I have to be nasty, but you can’t really step up for others. You can support, but you can’t force your life onto someone else’s.
The reason it make me angry is 1) He’ a hypochondriac (like our Dad). You say the word flu or cold, I guarantee he’ll have it the next day. The weird thing is if he actually has something wrong, he wont take the whole medication. It’s just weird. He keeps saying he can’t fly to our state, but he can to Sydney? It’s just weird. 2) He keeps turning down any solution and keeps saying things like “I can get over this myself”. When you have anxiety, you don’t want it. You don’t do nothing about it? 3) When I had my really bad day a couple of weeks ago now. AFTER I publicly said said I wasn’t coping. He publicly humiliated me about three times in that same week. Things that wouldn’t normally bother me, but not a good time at that time. The last time my Mum said did I watch the rest of the Instagram stories, I lost it,lol.
The reason I bring up my brother though as well. Everyone expects me to take care of him, why? To get to the place I have gotten to, is because I fought and am still fighting my anxiety. I don’t expect others to do it for me. I listen (or read) other people’s solutions and I see if they’ll work for me. When I face an anxiety issue and I get through it, I don’t turn around and go “Oh well, never doing that again” I keep doing it, to make sure I become comfortable with it.
Support is fantastic and never underestimate it. Don’t just throw the support to the side.
But like my brother, how is the Doctor giving those student notes, instead of making them face their issues…Going to help? I can’t get over that they are psychologist students, lol…You know, you know?
Writing all of that, got a lot of frustrations off my chest then…But I bet you all knew that already!
