Disheartening things I find w/ #ChronicPain & #ChronicIllness is misunderstanding &judgement from others. Weight seems to be a big thing for others. Overweight or thin seems to be an issue. Is it though or are those "others" basing it from their reality instead of the reality of
#ChronicPain & #ChronicIllness. I'll share just one of the many examples I've experienced. Recently I had to shop in the little girls' section & buy the largest size little girls to find a #sundress that would fit!!!(still a little big)So I'm a fairly small person. I, literally,
also had major #abdominalsurgery 2 weeks ago. A friend gave me a ride to get my staples out yesterday. He, on the way home, asked about my exercise, &about how often I walk. Yes, he knows about #ChronicPain & #chronicillness. Unless someone is asking you for exercise health

There is no concept of Engagement in Islam :A Thread🧵 Image
Engagement is the time between acceptance of the marriage proposal (khitba) and the marriage ceremony (‘aqd). Once the proposal is accepted, the man and the woman are known as “engaged to be married or simply “engaged”. Engagement has no recognition in Islamic laws Image
Who Proposes?

#Traditionally in all #cultures, it is the man who proposes to the woman; and it is done either directly by the man himself or on his behalf by his family. In the
West, even now man is expected to get down on his one knee to propose to the woman he wants to marry Image

1/10 Happy Red Day! 🔴 Hygiene during menstruation Image
2/10 Not all mothers can explain to their daughters the rules to follow and how to take care of themselves during menstruation, but it's very important! There are several essential principles to observe during menstruation: Image
3/10 Be prepared for the start of your period. Always carry spare pads and tampons with you. Many women always have everything they need with them - they may need it themselves, or for a friend, colleague, or even a stranger who wore white pants on the wrong day. Image

Who prioritizes time with family and friends more, Republicans or Democrats?

How did the pandemic impact the time these groups spent with loved ones?

We surveyed people about this in 2019 and 2020.

Here's what we found.

#loneliness #family #friends #COVID19 #politics Image
Friend Time

"How often do you spend a social evening with friends?" 0 (Never) to 6 (Daily).

Both Republican and Democrat men reported spending more time with friends compared to women.

There was no significant change between 2019 and 2020. Image
Family Time

"How often do you spend a social evening with relatives/family?" 0 (Never) to 6 (Daily).

Between 2019-20, time spent with family significantly declined for all groups except Republican men.

Democrats reported spending significantly less time with family. Image

(1/7) #FridayReads #FictionFriday

I highly recommend #LynnKurland's novels, in particular, her #dePiaget and #MacLeod series. Here's the kicker, the two series have a lot of crossovers, too!

What is the genre of the two series? It depends on the novel.

(2/7) 1. The most common is #romance and #romantic (the romantic “genre” isn't necessarily romance per se). Now, we are not talking about romance as most people assume, a girl is head over hills on a hunk guy who is a secret villain or a vampire. (aside: Nothing wrong with it.)
(3/7) 2. #TimeTravel
3. #Historical
4. #Paranormal
5. #Fantasy

There is also a touch of #family and #relationships here and there.

The first book I've read was #DreamsOfStardust. It was so good, I bought every copy of it I saw, and gave away for free to friends and colleagues.

Ever run into someone you look up to but don't know what to ask them?

Here are 10 questions I love to ask my mentors:
What is one piece of advice most people think is important but you think I could skip entirely?

⭐️The words “male” and “female” should be phased out in science because they reinforce ideas that sex is binary, scientists have suggested.
1. The terms were gathered as part of the EEB (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) Language Project, founded by a collaboration of scientists in the US and Canada who claim some terminology is not inclusive, and could be harmful.
#Gender #culture
2. The initiative, the EEB Language Project was launched by like-minded scientists across the United States and Canada, including three University of British Columbia researchers—Dr. Kaitlyn Gaynor, Dr. Alex Moore and Dr. Danielle Ignace.

Please do not give any person, especially not a disabled person, this advice:

Why don't you go work for [one of the most unethical corporations in existence]?

Giving this advice to someone because they posted something about a kind of job hunting or wanting $$ is no exception.
In that circumstance, it would still be awful advice, and when you give it to a disabled person, it's bad, awful, ableist advice.

It's so frustrating that I'm almost out of my 20's and any family member of mine still thinks this is okay.
I never asked for assistance with a job search or even said I said I was searching for a job. I have a profile on a freelance work site.

Giving me this awful unsolicited advice is willfully ignoring my disabilities and my principles.

They’ll tell you that ‘we’ the fishermen and our families are labour activists. They’ll tell you that Labour have brainwashed and coerced us. ‘We’ are forcing an anti-freeport agenda. That they’re using us for their political gains.
Shame on them: exploiting political conflict for their own motives to make themselves sleep better at night.

They haven’t. We are not any one political party and we have our own voice - and their voice does not represent ours.
Their empty requests for financial report are a haphazard launched into the abyss so satisfy the media frenzy, to acknowledge that they were never going to consider anything but their own agenda. As if it ever could…

"Yesterday, I could get my mom here in Singapore to show her this beautiful part of the world, and right today, I have decided to take her to show my office & city area.

It's hard to express the emotions and happiness that she is feeling. Imagine the lady that has spent her whole life in the village and did not even see the aeroplane from a close angle.
Yes, she became the first one from her generation to travel abroad and the second lady from my village (Of course first one is my wife). This is a pretty special moment for my family and me!

The only thing that hurts me is that I wish my dad was around to experience this!
