(shitpost) accutane is ableist
@firstname.lastname@example.org Fucking acne! I recently learned that we still don't *really* know what causes it. That's just great.
Nothing but the birth control pill worked well for me, but now I can't take it anymore because of the whole blood-clot-and-instant-death thing. I've been trying azelaic acid (10%) and it seems to be helping, especially with redness and cystic acne . It took about a month to kick in, though. And I had to repair my moisture barrier.
@hfrazey I had the same reaction when I was watching those whispery ASMR videos with like hair brushing and stuff. But THEN I was watching a video of someone using an ancient, well-oiled leather sewing machine and the sound of the machine made me bliss out. Then I realized that using or watching people use old, well-maintained machines chills me out massively. Something about the smooth clacking and the precision.
So maybe something like that will do it for you?
@fobo i thought you were joking, but no. Thats a chicken.
@Iuckyduck ooh good idea!! I have Heathers on Kanopy to watch.
I just stumbled on this Combo Chimbita song and it is g r e a t.
You know when you're trying to have a difficult group discussion in an attenpt to solve some really touchy issues that have been simmering for awhile, but that one guy keeps interrupting and derailing everyone with "lets all be friends!" "I'm uncomfortable!" "Let's stay positive!"?
If you're that guy, you need to shut the fuck up.
more selfi, done!
@june I LOVE IT
food + growing up
@Iuckyduck how long did it take you to like cilantro? I finally started to like small amts of it two years ago, after forcing it down for ages.
@fobo do you think he likes music or he just likes hangin out?
@fobo i like that he just hangs out being adorable and supportive. My cat would be raining destruction down on everything.
@Iuckyduck morning! Stay warm!

My new co-workers to have a much healthier attitude towards food than the people at my last job.
Only one person has mentioned my snacks (I always eat yogurt in the morning an apple after lunch) except to say they weren't sure I'd want the rice crispy square they brought me since I don't seem to eat sugary foods at work. I said "no thanks!" and they said "ok!" and that was IT. No badgering, no moralizing, no weirdness.
@ItsTheManOnTheMoon I just thought, "god, Mike looks so young." Lemme fetch my walker....
@kimdanes both are pretty badass
