my dentist office referred me to some place that doesn't even take my insurance and I can't even afford the consultation fee to see if I can save my tooth, let alone the fucking 1k they said it'd cost to get a fucking root canal and another 1.6k to get a crown and stuff.

I'm so fucking upset I'm not even 30 and I'm most likely going to lose my tooth because I'm fucking poor. I've had so many issues with this tooth, and I've gotten so much dental work to keep my teeth healthy and I'm going to fucking lose it and then all my teeth are going to get loose and fall out because I have so much crowding, that my teeth will shift too fast without an implant...

Dentist/tooth work talk under the read more above...

Y'all, I'm fucking desperate. I hate to ask for money on here, but I'm most likely going to lose my tooth, and I'm so, so desperate. I can't handle this.

BELARUS FUNDRAISERS

babushka

help families of political prisoners

support free press, journalists and independent media (English description) - gofundme
support free press, journalists and independent media - PayPal
help those who have lost their jobs because of the regime - facebook campaign
What's happening?


There are some cards in google that will probably explain the situation better than me, I just know what I've read in Russian news and from fundraiser creators. Basically, the "current president" of Belarus A.Lukashenko "won" in the elections which were so obviously fake, a lot of people went to protest them. Only to be met with police violence. People are being arrested, beaten, and tortured violently for simply going outside and peacefully demanding justice. This is sick.

The leaders of the opposition (mostly women) demand fair elections where Lukashenko's main opponent, S. Tikhanovskaya can compete against him fairly. The opposition suggests that the actual elections numbers were 90% in her favor, however the official number state that she only has 10% and Lukashenko has 80%.

Putin's stance on this is definitely pro-Lukashenko and he has offered to send military help to him if situation gets "out of control", which is very bad. Lukashenko is running around with a gun and a terrified face, but he refuses to let go of the presidential seat and openly defends violence and torture against protestors, claiming those are essential to keep the country together.

I see a lot of info carrds floating around, but not a lot of links to funds so here they are. The funds are named BY_Help and By_Sol.

If you have a platform bigger than mine, consider spreading the links around or adding them to your Belarus-themed carrds. I don't know if there's a way to contact carrd creators and ask them to link the funds, but if there is... Please, someone, do it. I am already shaking really badly as I'm typing this so I can't.

Ways to show your support:

Жыве Беларусь slogan (literally: Viva Belarus)

Use the white-red-white flag instead of the current "official" Belarus flag, which is green and red. No, the white-red-white flag does not have any fascist undertones.

Thanks for taking your time to read.

i've discovered in my friendships with people i'm usually able to make friends with people when i'm physically around them and talking one on one with them, but outside of those situations i always find myself struggling.

even with friends i've had for over eight years, i am unable to text them to check up on them and find it hard to assess what it was we were talking about in the first place when we hung around. whenever i saw them, we always had fun, and i cherish them and share common interests and experiences with them. but staying in touch really isn't my strong suit...

that's also why i'm not very good at online friendships i think. being around people makes for easier communication, and on top of that i'm hesitant to open up about myself to a person on another side of a screen.

i've always made friends through doing activities together, and that's how i used to keep up with them too up until the quaraintine. having those fall away has been... giving me worries.

hi

i've been looking up to logging back in on wf. not bc of the platform or anyone on here, just simply because a lot of things came up, i haven't logged in in a while, and the prolonged absence makes logging back in like an increasing mountain to climb. ( i have that with a lot of things )

so to anyone still here and tuning in, sorry for disappearing. and thank you for reading this.

I Like the Devil
Purity Ring

Mother laid her elbows on the bed
Whispering her wishes to the threads
Weaving in the weight of all our dread
Wiping up the stains of our regret

Heal her hands by kneading up the bread
Cleaning off her fingers as she wept
Lurk within her gleaming silhouette
The seal in our wonder to ferment

What is happiness but a word
Spoken from on high for what it's worth
Flown beneath the wings of little birds
But I have felt the wind crawl where we're cursed

Find us in the folded parts she pressed
Lying in positions like we've slept
Find us in the hallows of her chest
Lying in positions like we've slept

I like the devil can fly
I read her sweet mind last night
I like god can fly
I held a candle over her fright

I haven't been listening to music that much lately, but this is one of my favorite songs. I cry or almost cry every time I hear it.

Lyrics


I have never liked the box of knives
You said was a paradox because you're kind
But withstood a childhood that robbed you blind
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight
What do I do with this stuff?
It seems like yesterday I called you up
I had a terrible case of the past
I didn't know how to get it off
I didn't know how to get it off
And you took
Your machete
And you sliced through the vines that wrapped around me
And you said
"I don't know what I'm doing
So I'll just keep on cutting
It's worth a little blood to get your hands free"
I have never liked the box of knives
You said was a paradox because you're kind
But withstood a childhood that robbed you blind
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight
I have never liked the box of knives
You said was a paradox because you're kind
But withstood a childhood that robbed you blind
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight
What do I do with this stuff?
It seems like yesterday I was in love
I kept of covering the soft parts up
I didn't know how to get them off
I didn't know how to get them off
And you took your machete
And you hacked through the woods in the surrounding
And you said
"I don't know where I'm going
I just know that i'm heading from
The dead things piling up behind me"
And you took
Your machete
And you carved out a path to my chest and you said
"see
There's nothing not worth keeping
You've felt so many beatings
But
Nothing's going to work if you believe me
Nothing's going to work if you believe me"
I have never liked the box of knives
You said was a paradox because you're kind
But withstood a childhood that robbed you blind
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight
I have never liked the box of knives
You said was a paradox because you're kind
But withstood a childhood that robbed you blind
Of love that was safe and so you learned to fight
I have never liked the box of knives
I took it to the oceanside the day you died
I stood out on the dock
No matter how hard I tried
I couldn't drop them in
And I collapsed and cried:
What do I do with this stuff?
It seems like yesterday you were alive
And it's as if you never really died
And it's as if you never really died
And you took
Your machete
And you said
"boo, guess who
But seriously, beauty"
You said
"see?
You get the drill now, don't you?
It's not a will or won't
You can't keep making symbols out of nothing"
So I took your machete
And I sliced off your head and you laughed
And you said
"see
It's just like anti matter
It's dumbo's magic feather
You don't need me here to cut you
You don't need me here to cut you
You don't need me here to cut you
You don't need me here to cut you
Free"

what's everybody's default tool you like to walk around carrying in animal crossing? in other games I usually kept my net handy on account of bugs sneaky but this time I like walking around carrying the pole

flowerfemme

i like carrying around the fishing pole. usually see a lot of fish.


vaccinicropon

Either the umbrella or the vault pole, the umbrellas are cute and the pole vault is if i see any wasps


cjadewyton

The net, because I'm a coward


katiebirdie

the net so i can catch any bugs i see while walking around!


persephone

vaulting pole! it is easy enough for me to switch to other stuff and i don't have more than one bridge yet. somehow it's the one i find most annoying to have to switch to second only to the ladder, which i use slightly less often.


jonah

net at daytime to chunk those wapssp

none at nighttime bc i don't know if tarantulas come get u regardless of whether or not you got your net out in this game, but i aint risking it :')
