I wish in regards to social anxiety, people would talk about sex more and how hard it can be for us to have it. Granted, I know that not a whole lot of people with SA can form relationships that lead to sex but I still think it’s important.
The idea of sex always scared me ever since I was a little girl. I guess I was scared that my partner was going to hurt me. I didn’t loose my virginity until I was 19 and that’s only because I met a guy on Ok!Cupid. I lied to him about being a virgin but I’m pretty sure he found out when I started bleeding. Eventually, he stopped and told me that he couldn’t go on because I wasn’t uncomfortable and then he escorted me out of his place. The last guy I dated acted similarly. He once told me that whenever we would try to get physical, it was like he’s was molesting me. Our relationship eventually fell apart because of it. The only time I had an actual sex life was when I was with my ex (This was between losing my virginity and the the last guy I dated) who was abusive and didn’t give a shit whether I was enjoying myself or not.
I’m 22 now. I’ve tried to seek out therapy but it’s hard when you’re not seeing anyone and with my condition, it’s hard to find dates. I really hope I’m not alone when it comes to this. But since social anxiety is such a touchy subject on this blog, I embracing the hate that I might get. I guess the point I’m trying to get across is that social anxiety is more than just trying to establish friendships. It’s also maintaining all sorts of relationships, whether they be platonic, romantic, or even between family members.
This is because Fahrenheit is based on a brine scale and the human body. The scale is basically how cold does it have to be to freeze saltwater (zero Fahrenheit) to what temperature is the human body (100-ish Fahrenheit, although now we know that’s not exactly accurate). Fahrenheit was designed around humans.
Celsius and Kelvin are designed around the natural world.
Celsius is a scale based on water. Zero is when water freezes, 100 is when water boils.
Kelvin uses the same scale as Celsius (one degree, as a unit, is the same between the two), but defines zero as absolute zero, which is basically the temperature at which atoms literally stop doing that spinning thing. Nothing can exist below zero Kelvin. It’s the bottom of the scale.
Fahrenheit: what temperatures affect humans
Celsius: what temperatures affect water
Kelvin: what temperatures affect atoms
I like how this very helpful explanation contained the phrase “stop doing that spinning thing”
I’m so sick of people thinking they can just waltz into my room when I’m obviously listening to music in 4/4.
I just wanted to reblog this again because I find it inordinately funny.
Or when we’re leaving for some errands and my dad says “let’s rock’n’roll” but I’m listening to metal
feeling intimidated by people you want to be really good friends with
