Be Beautiful You <3

I am concerned people, lol.

We already have a lot of “social” media trying to dictate who we are. I am concerned by hearing people who say they’re doing something for themselves, which is fantastic. What concerns me is when I also hear that someone talks about how their partner, a family member, friend etc talk about how what’s been happening to them, and that person should think about them.

Things like mental health, physical health are such a personal journey. If something you’re doing is affecting someone else’s mental or physical health, that’s on them. As incredibly selfish as it it. You need to do what you need to, to keep yourself safe. No one should put pressure on you to make them feel better.

Physical and Mental health are definitely things you should be, being selfish about.

You want to give up something for yourself, that’s great! Go For It! But please don’t do it for someone else. Maybe they person is just not a good fit for you. You cannot do it for other people, because you will end up resenting them. You just will.

IF THOUGH, the thing you’re giving for yourself will also help them. Great! Just don’t do it, because they’re telling you to do it for them. It’s not romantic, it’s honest though.

Bodies, what are they good for?

I swear since I’ve had COVID, I don’t think that my body has caught up with my brain in terms of recovering.

My left shoulder hurt, then that seemed to travel to my right. I am seriously going to have to contact my physio. It is just getting ridiculous. Then, for some odd reason, on Friday, I felt like I had vertigo or something. It was weird. I couldn’t shake my head fast, and I stood up from the toilet and had to slow myself going up.

The thing is, I think I am generally okay. It could all be I have actually hurt my shoulder at some point. My leg has actually been okay lately. Except for Sunday where I walked around with my Mum, shopping. That only started to flair up about 4 hours later, and we hadn’t really sat down.

I am not panicking, because I really do believe that it is just that I need to see a physio. Get my body back and corrected into place. It might even be just as simple as a lower back massage, which I am really looking forward too. Maybe a nice shoulder one too.

In the mean time, I am doing everything that I can to ward off the pain. So you know the inflammation tablets, the wheat bag, gentle shoulder exercises.

Goals

After last week, and after having a cold all weekend, this past weekend. There’s one thing that I really need to start doing.

Making goals.

Last week, I got so caught up in not healthy things, that I become stress sick. Which is a thing. You stress yourself out so much that you become sick, through seemingly nothing. As your immune system is down.

Now when I talk about goals, I don’t mean necessarily, making the bed every day. Although I do hear that’s a good one, because no matter what else, you achieve through the day. You’ve at least made your bed.

When I mean goals, I am talking/writing about things like:

  • Restricting my social media time to an hour a day. On days that I feel like going on.
  • Making a little bird house on the ground. Honestly, it’s cold here a lot now. I feed the birds since Travie’s been gone. Yesterday I noticed a few on them stayed under the verandah after they got caught out, in the rain.
  • Since I’m behind in my reading, I need to spend a couple of hours a day reading something.
  • Clean the stove top.
  • Rebook my flu/cold jab after getting the flu this weekend =/
  • Setting up a spreadsheet for budgeting.

Magic Monday – Moaning

You know, sometimes having a good moan can actually help. Especially if you have someone to share it with. Sometimes the moan can be a little bit silly too, but you know, if you let it build up and build up, you’ll explode. And give yourself an early heart attack.

  • Twitter employees complaining about Elon Musk…Twitter has employees!!!!???? Where have they been? I’ve seen no evidence of them.
  • All the problems in the world right now, and people are STILL bringing up Depp vs Heard, even though they’re not writing about that case in the their blog. I will unfollow, not sorry. I am team NO ONE. Because they’re BOTH horrible. Don’t waste our time. Write about important stuff. Heard being an abuser does not mean Depp isn’t one, idiots.
  • In that case, I believe they are both as bad as each other. It’s fucked in the head to be angry about Roe vs Wade, but be all girl school “Team Johnny” when he literally texted that he wanted to burn Amber and stuff her in the trunk. There is something actually wrong with you, if you’re still “Team Johnny”. Use your HEADS. Why do you all *think* he keeps losing when he sues people who call him a wife beater…HE IS ONE! Twits.
  • I don’t care how mad you get reading that one. You’re the one whose “Team-Guy-Who-Literally-Wanted-Too-Burn-and-Put-Heard-in-his-trunk”. I’m not the one with the problem.
  • So the TERFs have being appropriating the Suffragette movement. Recently the UK had votes for their local elections. The TERDs decided to spoil their votes, by writing “Respect my Sex” and other transphobic stuff on their ballot papers. Good News: Four trans people were elected, and parties who were overly and openly transphobic, lost seats =D
  • The Supreme Court Justices, that want THE PEOPLE to give up their privacy and body autonomy. But they will put gates up to “protect” themselves. You want the people to give up their privacy, but you think everyone should respect yours? That’s not how the real works.

World Health Day <3

World Health Day is a global health awareness day celebrated every year on 7 April, under the sponsorship of the World Health Organization, as well as other related organizations. In 1948, the WHO held the First World Health Assembly.

Our Planet, Our Health

A lot of focus this year is on climate change, and when you take a look at the WHO website, you can certainly tell why.

WHO estimates that more than 13 million deaths around the world each year are due to avoidable environmental causes.

https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-health-day/2022

If you’re having a bad day, you might not want to read the website.

So what can you do to help?

With a lot of health issues, it starts with you. And this is no different with your health and how the climate affects that. You can start off simple.

  • Recycling
  • Planting trees and native plants. Even contacting your council to see about planting groups of trees.
  • Lessening food wastage.
  • Making decisions on healthier cleaning products.
  • Try walking and riding a bicycle more.
  • Reusable shopping bags.

What it’s like…

Just listening in on a conversation between my mum and my Gran (with the dementia). It was funny and heartbreaking. My grandparents split up and got divorced in the early 90’s, and yet the way she talks about him, it’s almost like he’s only just passed away and they were together that whole time. Yet, she doesn’t talk much about Reiki, and when she does, we can’t believe she doesn’t remember that’s why they split in the end, lol.

It is an odd thing to really witness, like you always hear about how people forget things and people. You kind of expect that to happen, but you don’t expect them to lose huge chunks of their life, just kind of like that. It’s sad, it’s funny, it’s…different to what you expect. She did amazing things with her Reiki and Tarot work, it took her around the world all on her own! Now it’s all kind of just gone. I guess, I take up that lantern?

Have any of you ever experienced anything different to what you expected?

So after the weekend, I started to speak about something that has been frustrating me for a long time. Places like Twitter, you see it all the time of people becoming quickly radicalized. You have to have a strong head on your body. I admit that I do go on social media a lot, especially at the moment. But it’s mostly to do with, I can’t believe the amount of shitty people!

However, one of the reasons I don’t become “either or” is because, I don’t have many friends and as I’ve said before I am not speaking to my Dad right now. The reason I don’t have many friends is because I have no problems with calling people out. The people in my life that I have, don’t put up with a lot of bull plop. Which is completely fine with me.

Kanye West

Okay, I am writing about this because I saw an article regarding him and it was calling his behaviour, juvenile. Now I get why that did that, if they called what his behaviour is, they’d probably get sued. His behaviour is downright dangerous.

I will admit that have a fear of people who are bi-polar. This comes from being sexually assaulted by someone with bi-polar. When I hear someone has it, I do instantly recoil. However, because I know it’s MY issue, I will work through it.

However, what makes me fear West, is that I am pretty sure he is either not taking his medication, or he is not taking the right medication. And that IS dangerous. And he has NO excuse, yes he is black, but he is also a rich person, and a celebrity. He has access to services that like 95% of the world’s population just do not have. I am pretty sure that Kardashians/Jenners would help him to get access to these too. I can’t imagine why they wouldn’t.

For myself, it’s like watching white women throwing themselves and defending Johnny Depp. Both of these men, as time continues to go on. Instead of taking responsibility for their actions and words, have decided it is okay to have a go at everyone else. IT IS NOT OKAY. The most dangerous thing is to put off their actions as “hurt feelings”.

There is a difference between being hurt and trying to control everyone around you, through manipulation. The only good thing about Depp, is that he and Heard didn’t have any children together. I think that’s the biggest difference between Depp and West, Depp doesn’t have children to manipulate others with.

I am not a Kardashian/Jenner fan, by any means, even I fear for them though.

One reason, and one reason only…Some facts about heart attacks.

This is going to be a LOT for a lot of you on a Monday morning. But it is a serious subject and should never be a versus subject.


ANY time, you make a SERIOUS health condition, that you cannot catch, about a group of other people. You are transphobic, you are racist etc.

Of COURSE trans people tell their doctor’s their biological sex,. You can’t CATCH heart attacks. There’s only two people who NEED to know your biological sex, yourself and your doctor. Jesus Christ STOP using transphobia and using it to take away from real life health situations! Heart attacks are a serious health condition and NO ONE should use them as a way to have a go at anyone.

Women and men are absolutely told what symptoms to look out for. I know about women’s atypical symptoms, if you don’t, that is purely on you. We’re in 2022 now, there are a lot of foundations, health and medical services that are specifically about heart conditions, and no excuse to not inform yourself. You don’t need to be told. You can also ask questions. Heck, I was sent to the ER a couple of years because I could feel my muscle stiffening from the cholesterol medication I’m on. I knew I wasn’t having a heart attack, but they sent me anyway. I was only 35. So again, it’s on you, the individual to find out.

As for women, we tend to not listen to our bodies as well…Anyone ever heard of man flu?lol…We all know when your man has got it, lol.

As I said before you cannot catch a heart attack. However, if you chose to get irrationally angry over your bigotries, then you will probably give yourself one. Including decided to tell people that you can’t “identify” your gender with an heart attack. Which is what Silver Apple “Queen” goes on to suggest. But you know, she doesn’t “hate” trans people, she just continually attacks them, brings them up, spreads misinformation about them in nearly every single post and comment and gets completely irrationally upset over them.

If you take anything away from this post. Whatever you chose to do with your health. Never EVER listen to someone who has a clear bias against an individual or a group of people. Myself, I am currently on medication that helps lower my cholesterol. I have a family history of high cholesterol. Although only my Dad has ever had a triple bypass on both sides of my family, that can be contributed to his alcoholism. I would rather just be safe.

Here are some FACTS:

Transgender men and women may have higher heart attack risk

Even after adjusting for cardiovascular risk factors such as age, high blood pressure, diabetes and lack of exercise, transgender men (who were born biologically female but now identify as male) had more than four times the rate of heart attack as cisgender women (who were born biologically female and identify as female) – 7.2 percent compared with 3.1 percent. Transgender men also had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender men (who were born biologically male and identify as male).

Transgender women (who were born biologically male and identify as female) had more than twice the rate of heart attack as cisgender women. There was no significant difference in heart attack rates for transgender women and cisgender men.

I will point out as well. Even though trans gender/sexual people have been around since before Christianity. It is because of right wing patriarchal religions, that we know so little about trans gender science, medical and health. Heck, the Nazi’s actually burnt down the first LGBTQIA friendly Science and Health center. That is fact by the way, a lot of the older religions and older matriarchal societies have a third gender or sex. In fact, a lot of female Witch societies accept transgender people in their group. I am going to deeper into that on Thursday.

Women will tend tend to have more atypical symptoms, than typical

What is the difference between typical and atypical symptoms?

Atypical pain (women) is frequently defined as epigastric or back pain or pain that is described as burning, stabbing, or characteristic of indigestion. Typical symptoms (men) usually include chest, arm, or jaw pain described as dull, heavy, tight, or crushing.

This is one of the reasons that heart attacks in women tend to go undiagnosed. I am going to praise ALL women here, our bodies can handle a LOT. Whether or not you have children, or have menstruation, or even have the big boobs, a big menopause or a little one. I think I can safely speak for ALL women, when I say these are just what our bodies on a daily basis, lol.

  • Heart attacks are a horrible health condition. I made a joke above about the man flu, but men do tend to… not exaggerate…It’s a kind of weird “societal” thing, that’s not exactly a society thing. You would think, if you listened to society, that women would be the ones who don’t “work through” a heart attack, and men would not. Yet, its one of the situations that is the opposite. This is why I’m like gender stereotypes are so stupid, lol.

Dear ALL women, please start listening to your bodies more. It’s YOUR body, do not rely on others to take care of it for you. You have one body, listen to it and take care of yourself.

Now, if you excuse me. I am going to go throw up. Due to my mental health issues, talking about things like heart attacks, suicides and serious health conditions, tends to put myself really on edge. Basically I think I’m going to “get it”. But this is an important topic, that needs to be taken seriously and not made to be a versus issue.

Your health, your responsibility.

The best advice…stay calm

*Kitty still not home, but trying to distract myself*

That’s it.

When it comes to COVID and Omicron, stay calm.

Listen to the health and medical experts. Don’t necessarily follow what journalists say. Don’t listen to the news. Consider what the politicians say, but take their information and then see what the health and experts say.

We were getting through COVID (well some of us), and we can get through Omicron too.
