HTML made easy

I’d love to say I’m a genius for figuring this out, but the fact that it took me this long probably means that I’m an idiot.I use markdown for original posts, but have trouble when I’m re-blogging a post that was originally HTML. I finally figured out I could create a series of keyboard shortcuts in iOS for the tags I use most often. For example, typing ;para gives me a set of open and close paragraph tags.

I pass this along to you. Of course, you probably figured it out ages ago.

Completely floored by my neighbor Jamie, who knows I don’t sleep well and not only bought me some books and magazines, but ones she knew I’d like based on other things I’ve read. (A River Runs Through It remains one of my favorite books of all time).

It’s been a good day, full of reminders that I’m a really lucky guy.

I’m thankful most of all for the one person who I want to share everything with. She’s amazing, and I’m so fortunate to have her (no, not Jamie).

It’s alive! Alive!

The nurse just kissed me!

She was so happy with the progress I’ve made that she actually kissed me and then immediately apologized. (I didn’t mind)

I’m collar-free! I’m having a few scans done today for comparison, but everything looks good. I’ll post an x-ray picture shortly. I’m hoping to see the screws (not a euphemism).

I’m so excited, you guys.

mental-health-advice:

Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.

The last one is a killer and very important.

this is extremely important tw #abuse

Always reblob.

Yeah.

I’m starting to accept that this can happen to anyone, regardless of demographic. It’s hard, I’m learning, because there’s not always one precipitating event or moment you can point to. It just happens, and then you wonder if it’s your fault.
