Since day one I have had no doubt in my decision to vote YES in the 2014 Scottish Independence Elections but this has possibly even furthered my certainty. This is a leaflet that the Better Together campaign delivered to THE MENTALLY DISABLED and other VULNERABLE groups of people across Scotland over the past few days. Not only is this disgustingly patronising and exploitative, it is taking advantage of a demographic, some of whom are genuinely unaware of how to carry out a vote, and telling them this is how theyre supposed to vote. It is both misleading and an insanely sinister ploy to sway (disabled) undecided voters. How they think they can get away with this is faaaaar beyond me and anyone else who is aware of this. In the past week, the Better Together has also released an advert promoting their party (here it is). This advert is laughably patronising and insanely sexist. How anyone can still be voting No after seeing that and watching the most recent referendum television debate and studied proposals made on both sides is, again, beyond me. Do your research. Pay attention to the signs. VOTE YES ON SEPTEMBER 18TH.

I made a slideshow about how to create a fictional character… I got most of the information from the ‘start writing fiction’ (free) course on the OpenUniversity website and found it incredibly useful so here’s a visual version for you :)
OH THANKS YOU !
I made a thing about stretching! Some of the images are hard to see, but if you click on them they should produce a larger image!

I just want to get excited about this.
10K notes!!! Eeeeep!
This comparison is important. The difference in these two birthdays is important. These photos are taken exactly a year apart: the left is my 18th birthday and the right is my 19th birthday. Here’s how these nights went:
18: I went out to a sushi restaurant with close friends and family. I refused to drink my first legal drink. I was wearing 2 pairs of pants and 3 sweaters. I had one bite of sashimi, ran to the bathroom, locked myself in the stall and purged. I refused to come out and my mom had to get the manager to unlock the door. I cried my eyes out and I had to convince the manager to let me sneak out the back because I was too embarrassed to go back to my own birthday party.
19: I met up with the same (with a few additions) group of friends at a pizza and wine bar. I had half a pizza, 3 glasses of wine and a slice of birthday cake. Scratch that, I had my face pushed into a piece of cake. In this picture I am over 30lbs heavier than one year ago today. I am wearing a thin tank top. I am warm, I am fulfilled and I love myself. (I am also pretty drunk).
I want you to know that recovery is 100% possible. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Some days, it took literally all my strength to push through meals. But I did it, and others can too. Eating disorders are not a “for life” sentence, although they feel like it. With hard work, adventure and patience, you can learn to love yourself again. You can learn to hold yourself together again.
Choosing to let Anorexia consume me would have been one of the last decisions I would have ever made. Choosing recovery was the single greatest decision I’ve ever made.
WOW. JUST WOW.
