"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

The big Brain-Freeze


I was so proud of myself,

The day I figured out how to describe 

A migraine.

To not flinch or apologize,

Or sugarcoat or downplay.

To look someone in the eye,

Even if they couldn’t see mine

Behind the dark sunglasses I was wearing


At night)

And tell them


A Brain-Freeze

The kind you get

When you drink too much of a slushie, too fast.

Remember that pain?

Imagine it magnified times ten.

Imagine it lasting three days.

I said this to my friend,

One afternoon.

She was in town for one day,

And I’d had a choice to make,

And I’d made it.

And I’d left the dark comfort of my bed,

And we’d gone out to lunch,

And I’d chosen the sun-drenched patio,

Over the overly-bright,


Dining room.

And I was in pain

And she was my friend

So I told her more.

I told her.

Now imagine that 3-day Brain-Freeze,

That also causes the flu,

So every muscle in your body aches,

Like your brain has gained 100 pounds,

And your neck and back and shoulders and legs,

Are struggling to not cut it loose,

Give it up

(give it all up)

Give up the fight

And let it go.

And it makes you nauseous,

This Brain-Freeze,

And it makes you vomit,

And the vomiting makes your head hurt more,

And the additional pain makes your stomach churn.

And the brain-freeze

Makes you stupid

(of course it makes you stupid

It’s attacking your brain

It’s your brain attacking your brain

Is it any wonder that

When you tried to add



You got


And the Brain-Freeze makes you clumsy,

And sometimes you fall down

And sometimes you drop things

And sometimes you get so dizzy

You have to sit down

In the middle of the hallway

And breathe for a while

Until the rolling

And the nausea


(for long enough to get to bed).

And it gets in your eyes and your nose and your ears and your mouth.

And soft, steady lights feel as bad as flashing strobes

And flashing strobes are something you can physically feel

Throbbing somewhere deep in your skull.

And the smell of your lover’s skin

Makes you cover your mouth

And run for the hills.

And the voice of your child

Softly saying they love you

Is like an ice pick

To your frontal lobe.

And your mouth becomes mush

And food tastes like dust

But you have to eat

If you want to take your pain pills.

And the Brain-Freeze blinds you

Sometimes literally

Sometimes accidenatally,

Sometimes with tunnel vision

Where you lose your periphery

Sometimes with little dots that swim around

Until you bat your hand

In front of your face

Thinking really

It must be gnats.

Sometimes with auras

Of light and color

Around objects

That confuse and distract.

Or sometimes

Just by the fact

That your eyelids are so heavy

And you are so tired of the fight

That sleep

Or something else

Sounds like a better option.

I described the Brain-Freeze to my friend.

Who had given birth to three children,

And had cancerous moles removed,

And broken bones,

And watched her fingers swell up to the size of hot dogs

As arthritis slowly took over.

And she flinched.

And she looked at me,

With my clean hair,

And my well-applied makeup

(at least what she could see of it.)

And the (almost natural) smile

On my tastefully colored


She looked at my unwrinkled skirt

And my fresh blouse,

At my high heels,

And the necklace that I had carefully chosen

To add a touch to the outfit

But not weight to my neck

Or a jingle to my step.

I saw her note

The way my hands sat on the table before me,


and only just failing,

not to shake.

She saw the way I flinched at the clink of glassware

3 tables away,

And how my shoulders hunched,


Every time our waiter spoke to us.

She watched me

Follow the shade

The umbrella cast over our table.

Like a new-born vampire,

Still learning not to let

Direct sunlight hit

The now-flammable skin

Of her face.

She watched me for a while

As I sat there

In the grips

Of my Brain-Freeze.

And finally

This woman,

Who had been through hells

That I have never known,

And always given me advice on how to beat my demons

Even when I didn’t ask for it,

Cast her eyes at the table,

Shook her head,

And thanked me

For getting out of bed for her.

#i still don't much like the ending #but i'm rebloggin this as a follow up to my reply


realslytherinchick replied to your post “Alright, brain/body: let’s get something real fucking straight. If…”

I KNOW OF A POSSIBLE CURE FOR MIGRAINES! There was a study done a few years back at some university and apparently chugging a Coke Slurpee until you get a massive brain freeze will cure the migraine! :)


realslytherinchick replied to your post “Alright, brain/body: let’s get something real fucking straight. If…”

I mean, I don’t know if it has to be Coke flavored, but that’s what I heard.

Well, as far as coke vs, say, blue raspberry… caffeine is found in many migraine medications. So I would not be surprised at all if the effectiveness of coke slushies versus blue raspberries had been studied and coke had come out the winner.

As far as combating migraines with brain freezes… well… I might try it. But I’m somewhat skeptical… mainly because… (see next post)

#realslytherinchick #migraines #i mean #it might work? #i know that when i broke my finger #i forgot about my migraine for almost 5 whole minutes #best 5 minutes of that day tbh #but it came back #with a vengeance #and a throbbing #broken finger #so i would say #0 of 5 stars #do not recommend #but mostly because breaking your finger sucks #and my fingernail is STILL discolored #but a brain freeze... #maybe? #but again #allow me to point to the next post #as explanation for why i am skeptical #also #not to nit-pick #but this sounds more like a treatment than a cure #don't get my hopes up #cures are beautiful beautiful mythical beasts #like unicorns #and dragons #and hot guys that i get on with really well that are also really super attracted to me #i mean.... hell... a girl can dream... but i know what's reality and what's fantasy

Alright, brain/body: let’s get something real fucking straight.

If you give me a migraine this weekend, I am going to proceed with my weekend plans anyway.

So you really don’t want me to have a migraine. My plans will just make it worse. You will suffer.

So just… stop.

#i've got an awesome weekend ahead of me #in fact #i should go to bed now #because i'm meeting #my clammate #the-creep-show #and my #monster-mate-via-proxy #zz-bottom #at 10:30 tomorrow #and despite my warnings #my body and brain might give me a migraine anyway #if i don't get some sleep



Basically if you are not deeply critical of your own creative endeavors at least some of the time, you are probably either Gilderoy Lockhart or Steven Moffat.

I laughed way too hard at this because I could totally see Moffat titling his autobiography Magical Me.

"For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now, I don’t."
