What a wonderful basket of frui…
In AP Biology today, we were discussing the hormone lectin. Lectin sends a signal to the brain telling it to stop eating 'cause you're full. Lectin is made by... ADIPOSE TISSUE- who knew that you guys exist in our bodies and help keep our bodies good and right :)
If you are, yourself, depressed right now, send a signal to someone, anyone you trust. Say the words out loud. Words have power. You are not a freak. You are not icky. You are, simply, human and in great pain. You do not “deserve” that pain. You are not less than for feeling it, and you DO deserve love and care and relief from that pain.
A personal essay worth everyone’s time.
