Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome
If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance.
I have plenty of stories of this kinda thing, not my own but my mum’s. Now mum has onset arthritis, dunno which type as consultants have changed it at least four times by now but she has done for almost 15 years now, and now pretty much always has at least that hobble that is associated with it if you get it in your legs.
The one I recall the best is about my second year of uni, mum parked in a disabled bay as is her right as a blue badge holder (Disability Mobility) at ASDA. I got sent in first as usual, pick up a trolley and wait inside while mum grabs reusable bags from the car and gets some money out. Some old fart noticed her getting out looking pretty healthy as it was one of her good days and actually called over a traffic warden to try and get her to move. Now thankfully for mum the guy came over and she just opened her driver-side door and pointed at her walking stick, the warden apologised and mum went in and told me. We both had a laugh and all but it was hardly the first time it’s happened. The amount of times she’s had to put on a worse limp or lug her stick with her because a traffic warden or just other people thought she looked too young is daft.
Thankfully my mum is way to strong headed a woman to be bothered, and more thankfully hasn’t had notes about it. Just people tutting at her. I genuinely can’t imagine what it’s like for people in similar situations who aren’t as strong headed, and all I can say is keep it up ‘cus people are gits.

If your count is higher than 719, then divide by 2 until you reach the first number to land in the 1 - 719 range and round up!
I’m currently a Treecko.
Kingler, or in the french version, Krabboss. I’m okay with this.

What if Nintendo makes Diddy Kong Racing DLC for Mario Kart 8 instead of a new Diddy Kong Racing?

Actually… this wouldn’t be a bad idea. Now if only Microsoft didn’t have Rare.
Dynamic posing and a foreshortening attempt.
This one seems to be my favourite guinea pig for drawing stuff lately.
It’s time to flush your stereotypes down the drain.
Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent.
I cannot wait for men to cry about this
I’VE NEVER BEEN MORE PLEASED.
As a man, reading this… makes me so happy. Choke on it, guys who preach the whole “GIRLS CAN’T PLAY VIDEO GAMES” bullshit.
I’m in a Sonic mood lately.
This was done mostly without guidelines. Still not so good with hands, though.
