[I]f the Republicans want to spend the entire next six months or year talking about repealing a bill that provides millions of people health insurance without providing any meaningful alternative, instead of wanting to talk about jobs and the economic situation of families all across the country, that’s their prerogative. At some point I think they’ll make the transition. That’s my hope, anyway. If not, we’re just going to keep on doing what we’re doing, which is making it work for people all across the country.
I’m sorry, I’m going to say one last thing about this, just because this does frustrate me: States that have chosen not to expand Medicaid for no other reason than political spite. You’ve got 5 million people who could be having health insurance right now at no cost to these states—zero cost to these states—other than ideological reasons. They have chosen not to provide health insurance for their citizens. That’s wrong. It should stop. Those folks should be able to get health insurance like everybody else.
- President Obama

Most of the states with Republican governors who have opted out of the Medicaid expansion have very poor people living there, too. These governors are deliberately hurting their own citizens because they don’t like the president. That’s just wrong.

This is the case in my state. We have a large gap if folks that should be covered and aren’t because the governor is ridiculously disconnected and alarmingly persuasive.

Fun fact, the insurance i was on, the only one who would cover me due to “pre-existing conditions” at the time, just had to shut down as our governor decided it was bad for some reason. Not just complaining for my sake, but it was coverage (not the greatest, but coverage none the less) for those considered too high a risk for other companies to cover. They can’t deny coverage now due to pre-existing or high risk conditions, but they can charge a lot more. Good times. :P

Well he missed a pretty god damn big one didn’t he

u fucked up, Tony
u fucked up big time

you had one job, Tony

what if he did find it though?
what if after the avengers, he just archived the data, fully intending to look at it all later, and then kind of forgot about it because he was too busy trying to tinker his trauma away?
what if after iron man 3 he got bored one day, went through his data banks, found all this damning evidence, and figured it out?
what if he found out during winter soldier and tried to contact someone, but steve and natasha were already underground, fury was faking the dead, hill was with fury, coulson and his team were being held hostage on the plane, clint was nowhere to be found, thor was in asgard, and bruce was on vacation in hawaii?
what if he couldn’t do anything about it because he’d gotten rid of all the suits?
what if he was building one from his old files and going to try to do something about it, but then jarvis brought up the news and all he could do was sit there and watch the helicarriers fall because as good as his tech was, it still couldn’t finish the armor fast enough for him to help?
what if he knew but he couldn’t do a thing to fix it?



Gah, i’m a bad nerd. I totally forgot about Steve finding all those Hydra weapons and gear in Avengers. I have no idea if it was planned that far back or not, but if so, wow.

sincerely, a person who has been on prozac for 9 years

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow

Prozac has literally stopped me killing myself. I would be dead if it weren’t for antidepressants. If you spread misinformation I’ll come to your house and smack u into orbit.

I’ll join you and steamroll people

As someone who takes the highest dosage of zoloft (setraline) possible for my body in order to function as a “normal” human being, allow me to assure you that if I ever hear you talking shit about needing to take meds, I will pull your head out of your arse and smack it into the nearest wall.

This is good, the one thing I’ll point out is that sometimes antidepressants will make you numb- it’s happened to me and my sister- but that’s a sign you’re on the wrong one. So if it happens, go back to your doctor and say you want to try a new one.

Fun fact, they didn’t know exactly how prozac worked for the longest time, and only recently discovered the reason it made you have more serotonin was that it was making you grow new neurons, along with making the ones you do have more similar to younger ones. Fascinating stuff. 

That said, i’ve two interesting times on prozac. The first it helped me get out of bed and do things, but killed my sex drive, to zero. This wouldn’t be so bad if i was alone, but i had a girlfriend at the time that i loved a ton and was gorgeous. Not even having the desire to touch her for months on end helped end that relationship. The second time i was on prozac, nothing happened. I could have taken a sugar pill and had the same effect. So they tried others, and they made me very, very dissociative. So they marked me as allergic. Ended up on Cymbalta. That shit is the devil, for me at least. Exploding head syndrome, being one of the bad ones, but i was also in a constant state of what the doctor described as “similar to heroin withdrawal”, and i’ve never done anything like that. It lasted months. 

The next ones they suggested trying were more experimental, and said they would cost about $50 a pill, every day, and not covered by insurance. I couldn’t afford that. The side effects also sounded hellish. I won’t even mention the zyprexa one doctor tried on me, sleeping over 12 hours a day, nightmares that still stick with me, and it’s not listed as helping depression. 

I guess my point is, great if the meds work for you, take them. They just don’t work for everyone, and a good doctor should work with you to see how they are progressing, good or bad or nothing. Don’t listen to posts or whatever to decide if you should or should’t take a certain med, only you and your doctor together will know.
