ok so what is all of that saying? let's take it from the top:

- E-dominant brains seem to show distinctly less cortisol-related stress response to achievement tasks v. T-dominant brains and it lasts
- the lack of cortisol sucks for autoimmune diseases over a lifespan but changes your disease risk

"Other studies, however, reported either no gender difference in stress reactivity or greater cortisol elevation in females than males, when a social rejection task was adopted as the stressor instead of achievement tasks (Stroud et al., 2002; Dickerson and Kemeny, 2004)."

"...In women, the phase of menstrual cycle, menopausal status and pregnancy were found to have marked effects on physiological stress responses. In particular, estrogen has been shown to buffer the sympathetic and HPA arousal (Goldstein et al., 2005; Kajantie and Phillips, 2006)."

"...Men are generally more susceptible to infectious diseases, hypertension (cardiovascular disease), aggressive behavior and abuse of alcohol or drugs. Women, on the other hand, have higher rates of autoimmune diseases, chronic pain, depression and anxiety disorders compared to men (Holden, 2005; Kudielka and Kirschbaum, 2005; Lundberg, 2005; Kajantie and Phillips, 2006)."

sexual abuse 

like im so tired and it honestly makes me cry bc i have so much internalized hatred and disgust and shame towards sex(uality) in myself

i was constantly criticized for being to slutty/promiscuous just for my Clothing. jsut for being curvy. just because men and boys constantly crossed my boundaries it was somehow my fault

this was my family, my "friends", and my church

no one taught me how to navigate physical relationships and i wound up getting abused, often.

Show thread

honestly?

fuck any religion or any other school of thought for instilling shame in folks re: sex(uality)

DWP bullshit, crying 

Yeah, so, we got a letter from the DWP today. We owe them over £1000 that they overpaid. And by overpaid, I mean "the money we needed to live between Rune starting their new job and actually getting paid." Fuck the DWP and the government in general.

lots of feelings

lots of stress

lots of sads

but we continue on, and we will make it u know?
