I don’t have chronic pain but this artwork is so nice to look at *^*
Just because we’re not writhing on the floor doesn’t mean we’re not hurting. We’ve just gotten really good at hiding it and functioning with it, otherwise we’d literally starve in our beds.
Lived like this for nearly a year. Got super lucky that it was repairable, but feel for those who have conditions that are not. <3
YES. So many people need to see this. Just because I’m not crying- doesn’t mean it doesn’t hurt like hell. And when I say I’m in “constant” pain, I mean that I am in constant pain.
Just because you don’t see me wincing, or hear me complaining, doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
This is pretty accurate. There are some days when fibromyalgia gets the best of me, but for the most part, my days are like this.
So much yes.
Yes, this is what it looks like.
gimme source! SOURCESOURCESOURCE
and I empathize with this wholly. Not so much pain, but chronic fatigue sprinkled with random shaking, blurred vision at times, and feeling spacey.
SOMEONE FINALLY DID THIS.
As a sufferer of chronic migraines, I can relate to this. However, my pain is literally DAILY. A constant in my life. I have had to stop going to school and do online courses because it was too loud and bright at the public school I normally attend. Doctor after doctor has diagnosed me with chronic migraines but they dont know why I have them. They predict I will have them for the rest of my life, actually. And since I am too young for strong narcotic pain medication, I am stuck using Motrin that barely helps or something prescription strength that makes me drowsy. It’s a lose-lose situation, but even though I’ve thought about ending it the past few years, I’ve made it through. And that is all that matters!
So yes, just because I’m not screaming in pain does not mean that I am not constantly in extreme pain!

A rather interesting aquaponics systems.
"Aquaponics, is a food production system that combines conventional aquaculture, (raising aquatic animals such as snails, fish, crayfish or prawns in tanks), with hydroponics (cultivating plants in water) in a symbiotic environment. In normal aquaculture, excretions from the animals being raised can accumulate in the water, increasing toxicity. In an aquaponic system, water from an aquaculture system is fed to a hydroponic system where the by-products are broken down by nitrogen-fixing bacteria into nitrates and nitrites, which are utilized by the plants as nutrients. The water is then recirculated back to the aquaculture system." - Wikipedia
Hollanda’da, yeni teknolojilerin toplum ve kültür ile etkileşimi üzerine bir araştırma laboratuvarı olan Mediamatic, PORT IZMIR 3 Tanıtım Günleri kapsamında geçtiğimiz hafta İzmir’deydi. İki gün süren “Miniponics” isimli atölyede, Mediamatic ekibi katılımcılar ile birlikte pet şişe, halat ve bambudan oluşan akuaponik bir sistem tasarladı. Balık ve sebze ekimini birleştiren sürdürülebilir gıda üretim sistemi olan akuaponik, bitkisel besinler içine balık atıkları dönüştürmek için doğal bakteri döngüsü kullanan bir kapalı dikey sistemdir. Ofisler, evler ve hatta dar balkonlar için uygun olan miniponic enstalasyonları, küçük ölçekte başarılı bir kentsel tarım uygulaması olarak görülebilir. Geleneksel tarım uygulamalarının aksine, miniponic sistemler, su harcamıyor, gübreye ihtiyaç duymuyor ve dikey tasarımı sayesinde çok az yer kaplıyor.
Mediamatic, a Dutch research lab concerned with the influence of new technologies on society and culture, visited Izmir last week in the context of PORT IZMIR 3 Triennial. Presenting a two day workshop on “Miniponics”, Mediamatics introduced an aquaponic installation consisting of little more than a PET bottle, rope and some bamboo. Aquaponics is a sustainable food production system that combines the cultivation of fish and vegetables. It is a closed vertical system that utilizes natural bacteria cycles to convert fish waste into vegetable nutrients. Suitable for offices, for living rooms and for the narrow balconies, miniponic installations are likely to be the best way to produce food in the city. Unlike traditional agriculture, miniponics wastes no water, doesn’t need any fertilizer and its vertical design takes up very little space.
Check out this nifty little Aquaponics set up
I will build this someday via this manual.
Tie a bow tie with Bill Nye
Having inspired a generation of scientists (or two), Bill Nye is yet to teach us all his secret. How does he get that bow tie looking so lush? Well now you can find out. Just remember when dressing the knot remember to snuggify, pull it tightical and pay attentiotivity.
Keep an ear out for a knee-slapper towards the end.
i have never seen a picture that represented this entire show more than this.
I’m sorry. I can’t stop laughing.
Love the hair.
