steroid medication, weight gain/loss, depression
I want to do the trending 2009 to 2019 picture, but I'm having a hard time finding pictures of myself from early 2009.
I was severely depressed as my 3 year relationship was ending (badly), dealing with the after effects of coming off of steroid treatment after a particularly terrible flare of my arthritis (including the early stages of moon face changing my appearance and a decent amount of weight to lose)... basically I wasn't myself.
What's more, people get *significantly* less productive and less good at their jobs as they work more. Why should we demand specialized workers like Doctors or Architects work 50, 60, or even 70-80 hours a week simply because its "always been done that way" and "they're paid well enough anyway" when the consequences of a mistake caused by overwork can be pretty significant, like with a surgical error or structural flaw in a building?
I know people call my thoughts on white American culture 'controversial', but it just is what it is.
White people are not motivated by fairness, healthy communities and cooperation. They just don't care. Not even about themselves.
Asking us who do to negotiate with this culture to find 'common ground' is like asking a drowning person to be patient and hope water stops killing them.
White Americans would rather die than cooperate. Attempting to 'negotiate' w/ insanity is pure fucking nonsense
