“Always Keep Fighting” « TWLOHA

Older post, but one I needed to read tonight.  No joke, the day he started the tshirt campaign, those words literally kept me going.  Clinging to them again tonight.

    Hi you 🙂

    What a tremendous message – with great thought behind it.

    Did you know I own and run an imaginary boxing glove store? If you’re ever short of gloves, let me know and I’ll fix you up.

    Strength and honour …

      Tell me more about these imaginary boxing gloves? I actually want to learn to box. But I haven’t been able to find anyone in this teeny tiny town I live in right now to teach me! But yeah, they are powerful words and it’s awesome to see a celebrity speak out about his own struggles and to work to try to change the stigmas associated. It’s the sort of thing I love about the Supernatural Fandom. They take the “family” thing to heart!

        Well, I don’t really know what else to say about the imaginary boxing glove store other than it’s open 24/7 and on a pro bono term for friends – and that includes you 🙂

        What’s your teeny tiny town like? I’ve lived in 2 and they mostly sucked.

        Yah I don’t really love where I live right now. I’m a bit conflicted, because it’s beautiful here but is in the mountains and I have to drive an hour each way for therapy, 2 hours for physical therapy or the psychiatrist, and 4 hours to see my GI doctor or surgeon. The drs here don’t have a lot of experience with IBD or even PTSD, though I feel I’ve been lucky to find a good therapist. Even that though, has its limitations. I’ve been in group therapies before that really helped, but because the towns are so small my therapist said they’ve had too many confidentiality issues in the past when trying this.
        Almost all shopping has to be done online because the nearest place to go is 2 hrs away. I wanted to find some decent craft markers a while ago because coloring is good therapy for me. .. nope. Couldn’t find them anywhere because the “craft” shops only sell quilting supplies!
        It’s a very conservative, Mormon area (though strangely enough this is the first place I’ve lived where the church has actually respected my wishes and left me alone!) so it’s hard to find activities or groups that I feel connected to. My family and friends are also at least 4 hrs away. So I just feel like I’m driving ALL the time.
        I’ve lived in small towns before but they were always within an hour of something bigger with more culture and arts. So. .. I don’t love it here. As gorgeous as it is, I’m waiting for the day my husband’s job will allow us to move.
