Having depression is like being tuned to the six o'clock news *all the time*. If that was all you watched, you'd start to think the whole world was full of nothing but political scandals, weather disasters, and horrific crimes.

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder."
I wonder how much of this is due to forgetting little details that had caused us to grow "less fond," vs not realising how much we appreciated certain aspects of something or someone.

THREAD: It's the 21st International Celebrate Bisexuality Day!! Better known as Bi+ Visibility Day, but I really want to talk about the celebrating.

See, Dorothy Riddle came up with a psychometric scale that measured the degree to which a person is or is not homophobic. 1/?

Happy Bi Visibility Day. Today is a good day to remind yourself to take care if your bisexuals correctly:

1. Ensure the chairs in your home are sturdy by tightening any loose screws and bolts today so the bisexuals in your life can sit on them incorrectly.
