As military myself I feel I need to point out something huge. I know it’s going to be a huge shocker for you all. PTSD IS NOT CONFINED TO THE MILITARY. I encourage all EMS/Police/Fire Fighters (and anyone else honestly) experiencing problems to lay down their fears and concerns of the system and seek help. I’ve never been to war, despite being in the military, but I have been in EMS since I was 16, and lets be honest we’ve all seen hell in EMS, and I am not afraid to say I have anxiety, depression, and probably even PTSD although it’s not official. It all started, this year, immediately, without warning, without flags, without any announcement, and let me tell you - it was the worst experience I have ever had. So please…seek help if you need it. It’s alright and we wont shun you for it. It’s alright for you to feel like a human even as you try to be more.
As someone who is in an intense treatment for PTSD, I want to spread this around like wildfire
Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

So I hadn’t yet come out to my mum and today I got home to see that someone had changed the cover on my bed to this
And then I saw that they left a note on the bed, so I went over to take a look at it and
My mum is the best
Whenever I see this I think well what if you weren’t gay and you came home one day to this
