Hi. My name is Emerald and if you know me you know that I suffer from bipolar disorder. This is a new thing for me and it’s really fucking expensive. I’m on at least four medications right now and that number is quickly going up. Each different med can be up to $50 for a month supply not to mention I go to the doctor once a week at $40 a visit and a blood test basically every 5 days at $25-$50 a blood test. I have no insurance or even medicaid and absolutely no source of income. I used to work but the lows of the bipolar made me a really shitty worker. I’m planning on going to community college in the fall and pulling mucho loans but for now I have many pending appointments and no sign of money from anywhere. This doesn’t even touch the cost of living and food which I’m basically leaching off my very poor bf. I could really use any sort of help. Even a dollar helps, seriously.
I will also take commissions for art or plush toys or even noodz.
I appreciate and reblogs or signal boosts.
Thank you so much! <3
UPDATE: Still need a lot of help! I’m way overdrawn at the bank and I still have doctors appointments coming up. I’ll be set by September when financial aid comes in but I’m super broke with no end in sight. I’m breaking down crying over how scared I am and I’m not even sure if I’m on the right medication. I’m paying for all of it out of pocket because I’m having trouble with my medicaid application. I’ve got basically two spoons rn and one is keeping me alive and the other gets me out of bed in the morning. I’m trying my hardest but worrying about money is the worst. All it takes is just a reblog to help and I appreciate any support at all and I’m so thankful to everyone who has already donated and reblogged. I really hate asking for help but I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t need it.

Here’s a few photos I took from the NAIDOC march in Melbourne today!
We started from the Aboriginal Health Service and marched into Federation Square. At the intersection of Bourke and Swanston Street, we all gathered in a circle. We danced, listened to music and connected with the land. Later on, we formed an even bigger circle when we got to the intersection of Flinders and Swanston Street. There, we held a coroboree again. A young woman also sang “Took The Children Away” by Uncle Archie Roach. After then arriving at Federation Square, there was a small concert with performances from Bart Willoughby & Band and Uncle Johnny Lovett.
There was a massive turnout today with lots of talk about land rights, the issues we have to overcome in our communities and sovereignty. We’re becoming more awakened and vocal. If we keep this up, we will be able to get a movement happening. A movement to end Black oppression in Australia, to begin the process of writing treaties and to ensure that our land, laws and peoples are wholly acknowledged and respected. The road to healing starts now!
To reaffirm what the marshals were protesting through their megaphones; “pump those Black fists, raise your flags and speak up!”
Keep being deadly, you mob!

Australia was not empty when Europeans came here
White Australians are not the first Australians

I’ve been sick for almost two weeks but my hair is doing the floopy thing that looks good so it can’t be all bad can it?
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT I STOPPED BREATHING
Lavoisier is having none of your shit.
Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.
Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject.
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.
I LOVE IT
people who get angry about the fake documentaries discovery channel puts out are weak and will be left behind.
