Oh my god. I got lost 3 times on the way to the appointment, and showed up 20 minutes late, just to have the lady at the desk remind me that the appointment wasn’t for another week.
I was 20 minutes late and a week early. The appointment is on the 17th. They wrote me a note so I wouldn’t get confused again.
I’m gonnnnnaaaa doooo iiiiit….
Gonna get uuuup noooowww…
I need to get up and shower now but…
This happens every time before an appointment like this. I’m like “no no you’re fine. appointments are silly and you are perfectly healthy. call and cancel the appointment. sleep in. stay home. you don’t have personalities or any of that. that’s just silly. you’re fine. you’re a single, whole person.”
And then I’m like “I don’t know… Are you sure?”
"yeah. for sure. stay home."
And 2 hours later I’m still here arguing with voices over whether or not I have voices, and watching the clock trying to decide the precise moment when I really do need to go shower, but also fighting the urge to just call and cancel the whole thing because I’m fine, really, I’m fine, and what if I black out before I get there?
Growth of fungus, Paecilomyces cicadae, Elma Kearney
This ascomycetous fungus is an endoparasite of underground cicada nymphs. Infection begins when ingested spores germinate and invade the nymph, inhibiting protein synthesis (by cordycepin) and replacing internal organs with mycelia. At maturity, the fungal fruiting bodies (stromata) grow from the killed host and produce white spores.
maybe i should do a fuck yeah mycophobia week. fungus can be pretty horrifying and i’m glad it’s finally getting the cultural recognition it deserves.
Look at all those parasects
I am so scared I don’t know what to do.
You know I have a mental health appointment today because I haven’t showered and I can’t get out of bed.
Noooooooo I looked forward to this but I cannot gooooooooo nowwww
I. Was not. Ready.
I like how the girl on the right does not even flinch. This must be a common occurrence.
I would party with this lady so hard.
And I don’t party with anybody.
