Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome
If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.
If you are healthy, please reblog. If you are sick, please reblog. If you have a disability, please reblog. If you have an invisible illness, please reblog. If you know someone with a disability, please reblog. If you are a human being, please reblog.
Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it.
Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance.
I never thought about this wow
I refuse to get a disabled placard for exactly this reason. I could have one if I chose, but I look perfectly healthy. If you don’t know that I’m in constant pain every day of my life, you wouldn’t think it was the case. I have enough problems without being yelled at by strangers. Shout out to all my invisible illness/disability brethren.
A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
"cop breaks and enters with state approval, gets his ass shot"
this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home
Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??
Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.
Oh no stand your ground for the homie right???? NO STAND YOUR GROUND FOR THE HOMIE RIGHT????!????!!!!
What also gets me is CAPITAL MURDER charges. Capital murder denotes premeditation, meaning that for this to be capital murder, this man would have had to have planned it out.
How can you plan ahead to kill someone who’s coming through your window while you’re sitting there minding your own business? If a guy dressed like a storm trooper hopped through my window I would probably shoot them too because people don’t typically enter homes through the window with any sort of legitimate reason (especially dressed like they’re going to war).
He was defending his property from what he perceived (quite rightly so) as a threat. Anyone could imagine that shooting someone breaking and entering into one’s home is more a split-second decision than anything else. There’s no room for premeditation. We’re so quick to defend gun ownership when it’s a white person behind the trigger but God help you if you aren’t white and find gun ownership to be right for you and your life. He isn’t being held on capital murder charges because he committed what would constitute a capital murder, he’s being held on the highest of murder charges because he was an African American exercising his American (and Texan!) right to use firearms to defend his home and property.

allow me to answer that for you: because he’s a black man living in america

Basically, I need a list of vegan, cruelty-free mascara, foundation (BB cream hopefully too and powder) blush, eyeliner, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, and toothpaste that are preferably available in Walmart or Shopper's. Think you could help? I know it's a lot to ask so thank you!
Okay, I’m not going to break down by list because that’s a lot of work, and you can probably do...
