Anonymous asked: It's not impossible what on earth do you think mental health professionals do do you think they conduct a series of spells on their patients or something? They literally just look at a bunch of symptoms and check them off it is very possibly to self diagnose.

middleeasternsarecool:

With the internet today it is possible to try and diagnose yourself— however, since neither you nor the internet are actual licensed physicians it is advised against. I’m premed, and I have volunteered at a lot of hospitals and seen a lot of patients come in with major illnesses because they ignored the minor symptoms until it was too late. For example, a girl in her twenties once came in after she passed out several times in a row at work— she had self diagnosed herself the first time she passed out and assumed she had low blood sugar, but after some tests it turned out she had narcolepsy. Without the help of medical professionals she would have continued to pass out and could have seriously hurt herself (by banging her head somewhere) or others (by driving and blacking out). This isn’t the only story I have— I have much scarier stories about HIV, tuberculosis, Crohn’s Disease, pregnancy, spider bites, etc. So yes, you can self diagnose and no one is stopping you, but it is not advised because you neither have the training nor the medical technology of an actual medical doctor. With that being said, please don’t self-diagnose— if you’re feeling bad and it lasts longer than a couple of days, please visit a doctor or hospital.

Did this nonny just imply that being psychiatrist just means spending twelve years of your life memorizing webMD pages? Like? Do you really think thats all there is to psychiatry? Why do people com into NueroAtypical folks inbox to tell them they’re abelist for thinking only doctors should practice medicine and that people shouldn’t risk their lives by self-diagnosing? How is telling people to put their lives at risk ableist?

Shonda Rhimes decimates NY Times critic who called her an “angry black woman” 

note to critics of the world: When you’re talking to African-American women, don’t use the tired “angry black woman” stereotype.

New York Times critic Alessandra Stanley, whose journalism career includes a laundry list of inaccuracies and errors, published a disgusting assessment of how Rhimes and her hit ABC series Scandal have changed the television landscape for black women. 

"When Shonda Rhimes writes her autobiography," Stanley begins, "it should be called How to Get Away With Being an Angry Black Woman."

Rhimes didn’t let it go unanswered Follow micdotcom

FINISH THEM!

From A Series of Unfortunate Events DVD commentary track.

if you haven’t watched this film with the commentary then you are missing out, it’s hilarious. “Lemony Snicket” was completely unhappy with the film and wanted no real part of it and so in the commentary he just fucks about. Seriously, at one point he gets out an accordion and drowns out the director with his playing

"nearly all of my life"

Lemony Snicket sass is what I aspire to in life.

"Lemony Snicket" (Dan Handler) was asked if he liked the movie.
He said “I love the movie as much as someone who wrote 8 drafts of a movie before being fired from his own creation could possibly be.”
The man’s life is sarcasm and it’s beautiful.
