I need to prove a point to my homophobic friend.I’m writing down the urls of everyone who reblogs this in a notebook, and will present it to my friend when it is sufficiently full.
You’re gonna need a bigger book
No you’re gonna need a new friend
LET’S BREAK THE NOTES
DO NOT BE A DICK WHEN THEY HAVE TO MISS THINGS BECAUSE OF THEIR ILLNESS, EVEN IF THESE ARE COMMITMENTS
DO NOT BE EVEN MORE OF A DICK WHEN THEY DECIDE TO DO SOMETHING FOR THEMSELVES DESPITE THE ILLNESS
DO NOT BE A DICK ABOUT IT
DO NOT SAY ~WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS SICK~
YOU FUCKING KNOW WHY
IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE A CHRONIC, INCURABLE ILLNESS
Sometimes you need to remind yourself that you were the one who carried you through the heartache. You are the one who sits with the cold body on the shower floor, and picks it up. You are the one who feeds it, who clothes it, who tucks it into bed, and you should be proud of that. Having the strength to take care of yourself when everyone around you is trying to bleed you dry, that is the strongest thing in the universe.
I absolutely needed to read that.
