The 2019 ACA (Affordable Care Act) enrollment period has been shortened from 90 days to 45 days (November 1-December 15, 2018) and the advertising budget to promote open enrollment has been slashed in an effort to sabotage the program. You’re probably not seeing a lot of advertising (read: zero) about the enrollment window online or on TV.

ACA OPEN ENROLLMENT HAS BEGUN

Yo! Sign up for healthcare if you’re American / in America!

liberaljane: Your right to abortion shouldn’…

liberaljane:

Your right to abortion shouldn’t depend on your zip code. Despite the fact that 1 in 4 will have an abortion before age 45, accessing in-clinic abortion care in the United States is often difficult – if not impossible. With less than 1,000 abortion clinics left in the United States, it’s estimated that 90% of counties in the United States do not have access to abortion care.

a donation post popped up for a girl with a rare and severe form of cancer. she needed money to afford a progressive surgery she could only get overseas. the post wasn’t dated and all of the links were broken so i googled her name to see if i could find an updates.

she died at 17, with 2/3 of the funds she needed raised. 

it makes me so angry that people can’t afford the care they need, and so so sad that stories like these are becoming more common: people are trying to crowdfund life-saving medicines and procedures and dying before they can raise enough money. 

this life is one hell of a dismal hellscape.

my entire life changed when my dentist told me that the only time my teeth should be touching is when i’m chewing. every single time my teeth are touching i have to separate them. and i noticed that i clench my teeth a LOT.

when your mouth is closed and your teeth are touching or held tightly together, you are unnecessarily straining muscles out of stress. the healthiest way to hold your jaw is slightly apart, where it is relaxed. THIS HELPS WITH HEADACHES

I unclenched my jaw upon reading this.

I recently realized that I grind my teeth all the damn time and one tip I read is to keep the tip of your tongue between your teeth if you’re just sitting around (they said to do it while you sleep too but how do you control that lol).

y’all. it’s amazing. you will realize how badly/often you clench your jaw SO FAST because you’re literally biting down on your tongue.

(the whole point of the exercise is to train your jaw not to clench so bad by using the pain of biting your tongue to make you relax a little).

People who perform manual labor should be not only given high and liveable wages, but unlimited access to healthcare and physical therapy to help manage the myriad conditions that come from doing back-breaking work.

Like this is not an absurd concept. It bothers me that people think that it is.

I want to be really clear about something: Planned Parenthood has done more to prevent abortion than the pro-life movement ever has.

Yup, preventing abortion by giving abortions. Makes sense!

No you fucking crusty nutsack giving people the education and the tools to not become pregnant in the first fucking place

One of my Christian friends made a Facebook post about how PP gave her tons of resources when she was trying to get pregnant and people were actually genuinely shocked that they provided such resources; they had fully bought into the idea that PP is just an “abortion factory”. The misinformation that’s been spread about PP is unreal.

gosh it’s almost like Planned Parenthood will help you plan for parenthood

so there’s all that advice for people with depression that’s like “just go outside! wash your hair!” and honestly it’s all infuriating and patronizing and awful but sometimes doing those things really can help you feel more normal/stable. so my best advice in that lane, from one depressed person to another? just brush your teeth.

like, you don’t even have to make a real extra effort. next time you go to the bathroom, just brush your teeth, even if it’s a 20 second, shitty-ass job of it.

your mouth will taste better, which is a totally underrated feeling. you will have accomplished something. AND taking care of your teeth will save you so many problems down the road.

idk. maybe this only works for me, but it really does do something. i feel healthier and more functional. and it’s so easy to just stack with a trip to pee. so i thought i’d put it out there.
