Me 100% of the time. Luckily Ito help for my ADD when I was a child

fun facts!

  • ADD and ADHD are the same disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder was officially renamed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in 1994. Many people use ADD to refer to Type One presented here, and ADHD to refer to Type Two, but they are the same core disorder.
  • In many cases where ADHD carries into adulthood, it’s a genetic issue [My grandfather, mother, siblings, and I have all been diagnosed with ADHD], though this does not always occur.

hello yes this is me

more fun facts!

  • there are a lot of talks about how ADHD is overdiagnosed, and that may be true for boys, but for girls ADHD is severely underdiagnosed.
  • older studies mostly looked at hyperactive boys and that’s the perception we have of ADHD. because of this many girls will go undiagnosed until adulthood.
  • most girls/women who have ADHD are inattentive type. they tend to be introverted, disorganized and daydreamers. 
  • girls will internalize these as personal failings and teenage girls have a much higher rate of suicide and self harm because of it
  • ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety and depression, both of which are caused by the failings from having ADHD
  • depression can present itself differently in people with ADHD. it’s more of a discouragement from constantly failing, but it can be just as debilitating.

Okay, I’m curious, which comic is this from? I’m pretty sure it’s one of the old EC titles due to the style of the text box, but other than that.

This is Isis, our Aby kitten of about 4-5 months of age. About a month ago, she was showing signs of an URI, and we brought her in for antibiotics. She seemed to get better for a few days, and then crashed quickly.

Her breathing had gotten so labored, that we brought her into an emergency vet. They prescribed us a different set of antibiotics, and we were on our way. We didnt think too much of it, because she was bright eyed and playful and eating/drinking fine.

A week later, and she got progressively worse, she was vomiting, her wheezing was clearly impacting her as she fought for every breath, and she was eating and drinking a lot less. What she did get in, she did so extremely noisily.

We brought her in to emergency again (because these things would just snap to a worse state within a day, and we were worried about waiting a week when she was clearly declining at a rapid rate) and they took some x rays, finding a suspicious lump within her skull, but they were unable to see any polyps (which, I dont think they looked very far since this thing was massive) and suggested we get a CT scan (which ranged from 1200 to 2500 alone)

She then stopped eating and drinking entirely. We started syringe feeding her and giving her water the same way, but she couldnt take very much at a time without spitting it out.

We took her in to the vet we had gotten her from, as they had stated they would insure a clean bill of health for the first year and include all shots, etc. And they told us it was definitely a polyp in her middle ear, they had a specialist they would call and bring them in to take care of her and that it would be covered.

Day by day she got progressively worse. By the third day she had clearly lost a lot of weight, even though she was only four pounds. Her bones were prominent, her fur was greasy, and she had stopped playing and moving around entirely. Her breathing had gotten so strained and so hard, that she had to keep her mouth open all the time, spent the entire day sleeping in effort to keep breathing. We had to wake her a few times when she seemed to stop, and she was constantly trembling.

We couldnt wait any longer, asked desperately if the specialist had gotten back to the vet, and all they could do was shrug and say he hadnt gotten back to them and they were sorry we were suffering, that we should just put her down.

The next day (yesterday) I spent hours calling every vet hospital in the area searching for anyone that could do a polyp removal surgery AND do it on the weekend, where as they just kept telling me to wait until monday, in which I told them I really didnt think she would last that long.

So I finally found a specialty animal hospital that could do it, and we rushed her over. After about 2 hours of waiting, they told us they thought it was indeed a polyp, and they would call someone in to take care of it.

We just got a call this morning saying the surgery went fine, it was indeed a massive polyp. One that was half the size of her skull (apparently it grew since we had the xrays done) and entirely massive for any cat, much less one that young.

But now its out, and we’ll be picking her up in a few minutes. The point of this is, after the 250 dollar charge of our first ER visit (which I cant seem to find the bill for, but when I do I’ll update this), the 440 dollar charge for the xrays, and the 1400 charge for the procedure, I have spent every last cent I have. My credit cards are maxed out, I have no income, and am entirely without any funds.

Any and all donations would be incredibly appreciated, we’ve been put into such a massive hole because of this, but we didnt want to give up and just put her down.

All donations would go towards her bills, and really, just, we would be so incredibly grateful for the help.

It seems like I cant get the donate button to show up, for whatever stupid reason, so if you would like to help, the paypal address is heatherhumiston@yahoo.com

Bajwara, a monotreme kaiju by Chris Eye

You know, out of the most prominent cinematic kaiju, I don’t really think mammals have shown up all that often in their ranks.
All I can think of is King Caesar and Gehara, and Caesar is more an animate-statue-thingy.

Sorry this request took so long! Just got around to watching the movie last night. Man, that was an experience! You all should watch it when you get the chance, great movie!

Hope you enjoy!

Oh ho ho ho ho! It’s not a problem at all! This is well worth the wait! I am highly thankful that this crossover has now come true!

I am also quite impressed that you have drawn these extra meet-ups of the other characters! They do fit quite well like sugar and tea!

Thank you kindly for your time and consideration on this request!

You cannot believe how happy I am that somebody crossed Five Nights at Freddy’s with Meet The Feebles.

The kakapo is a critically endangered species of large, flightless, nocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of the super-family Strigopoidea endemic to New Zealand. It has finely blotched yellow-green plumage, a distinct facial disc of sensory, vibrissa-like feathers, a large grey beak, short legs, large feet, and wings and a tail of relatively short length.

The total known population is only 126 living individuals, as reported by the Kakapo Recovery programme, most of which have been given names.Because of Polynesian and European colonisation and the introduction of predators such as cats, rats, ferrets, and stoats, the kakapo was almost wiped out. Conservation efforts began in the 1890s, but they were not very successful until the implementation of the Kakapo Recovery plan in the 1980s. (x) 

There are ways you can help save the kakapo population through donations, adoptions, voluteering, becoming a supporter, or buying merchadise. 

Please spread the word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE DON’T LET THIS BEAUTIFUL ADORABLE SPECIES OF BIRD DIE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Human beings don't have a right to water."

stfueverything:

Across the globe, Nestlé is pushing to privatize and control public water resources.

Nestlé’s Chairman of the Board, Peter Brabeck, has explained his philosophy with “The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. That means as a human being you should have a right to water. That’s an extreme solution.”

Since that quote has gotten widespread attention, Brabeck has backtracked, but his company has not. Around the world, Nestlé is bullying communities into giving up control of their water. It’s time we took a stand for public water sources.

Tell Nestlé that we have a right to water. Stop locking up our resources!

At the World Water Forum in 2000, Nestlé successfully lobbied to stop water from being declared a universal right — declaring open hunting season on our local water resources by the multinational corporations looking to control them. For Nestlé, this means billions of dollars in profits. For us, it means paying up to 2,000 percent more for drinking water because it comes from a plastic bottle.

Now, in countries around the world, Nestlé is promoting bottled water as a status symbol. As it pumps out fresh water at high volume, water tables lower and local wells become degraded. Safe water becomes a privilege only affordable for the wealthy.

In our story, clean water is a resource that should be available to all. It should be something we look after for the public good, to keep safe for generations, not something we pump out by billions of gallons to fuel short-term private profits. Nestlé thinks our opinion is “extreme”, but we have to make a stand for public resources. Please join us today in telling Nestlé that it’s not “extreme” to treat water like a public right.

Tell Nestlé to start treating water like a public right, not a source for private profits!

This is a relevant post, especially since a lot of big companies can’t resist the allure of money. Now they want to put a bill on public water sources?

Why the hell is Nestle being run by the villain from Tank Girl?
