Honestly I haven’t given it much thought.
Things have been hectic working retail coming up to Christmas!
Temple of Bacchus, Baalbek
Where I work is very close to dock land and the sea shore and with the wind and tidal surges they’ve issued a severe flood warning for most of the east coast.
The flood sirens have been going off since 3pm (which sound like air raid sirens, which is kind of cool).
I finish my shift at 4, and then they decide to close the shopping centre.
Thanks, couldn’t have done that earlier?
I’m loving I, Lucifer.
It’s so random and delightful.
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.
If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.
oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID
Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects.
I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.
i fucking cant
So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.

My beautiful prayer bead necklace in honor of the Queen of Heaven, created by kingofwands.tumblr.com!
Lapis lazuli beads, gold accents, and a majestic pigeon/dove in flight - it comes together so perfectly.
If the Greeks had twitter
I love the fact that Perseus is “NotPercyJackson”

I get a lot of people assuming I’m from America when they meet me on tumblr. I wanna see how many people here aren’t American!
Roman Marble Aphrodite Anadyomene
An ancient Roman marble statuette of Aphrodite Anadyomene, the goddess of love. She stands nude, having risen from the sea, and leans her head to wring out her hair. At her feet a dolphin sits with its tail curling upward.
