You never know when you could save a life! 💜 I highly recommend having Narcan on hand. Make sure it’s not expired!

We've compiled a statewide directory of SC community distributors of Naloxone (Narcan).

Link: https://www.wakeupcarolina.org/narcan-community-distributors/

These are public AND private organizations that provide services to individuals who may be at risk for an overdose.

These organizations maintain a supply of Narcan, which can reverse an overdose. Please get in touch with the community distributors listed for information about their distribution practices.

A beautiful reminder that there is SO more to health than what we eat, and that “healthy” is not as black-and-white as it seems.

Tip number one: never ask a doctor for advice about nutrition. We have virtually no training on this subject. You wanna ask a nutritionist/dietitian. Preferably an anti-diet one.

But since you're here, these are my three top tips for eating "healthy" this (any) month.

1. Eat food that you want to eat as opposed to food you think you're supposed to eat. Eating can and should be a pleasurable experience. This isn't always feasible, and I know I go through phases where I'm eating because I need to rather than because I want to. But on the whole, I make sure to eat what I want when I want it.

2. Eat food that you can afford to eat. Do not be bullied or pressured into buying food that costs more than you can afford. There is nothing wrong with frozen or canned food - it doesn't need to be fresh. There is nothing wrong with food that has a longer shelf life. There is nothing wrong with "processed food", no matter what the haters say. I'm not a nutrition expert but I do know a PR campaign when I see one, and the reason "experts" are demonising "ultra processed food" is because they are trying to sell you something!

3. Eat food that lowers your stress levels. The world is on fire. We're living through end-stage capitalism in a world that hates Fat people. You've already got too much on your plate and the last thing you want to do is increase your stress levels. Food can be nurturing and comforting - ain't nothing wrong with that. If meal prep is your jam then go for it, but don't feel bad if you don't have the time or the energy. Convenience food is convenient, so don't let people judge you or make you feel bad (or worse still, don't judge yourself) for choosing the convenient option.

If you're thinking of joining (my online community) then check out what one of our members says:
"Living in a fat body with other marginalized identities means that navigating the healthcare system can be overwhelming and isolating. Having a space where I can find community as my whole self with people who have been there helps squash that isolation and brings a sense of togetherness to decision making, as well as a sense of hopefulness for the future."

Here's some examples of small changes that could make big impacts!

- Buying clothes that fit you so that you aren't bothered (physically or emotionally) by ill-fitting clothes
- Listening to a great playlist or interesting podcast while doing your least favorite chore
- Wiping yourself with a hygiene wipe and changing your pajamas when you're too depressed to shower
- Giving yourself permission to be realistic about your limits -- and accepting them. (maybe cooking AND dishes are too much for one weeknight, and it would be way easier to do the dishes in the morning)
- Doing 30 seconds of mindfulness or breathing exercises per day
- Taking a walk just to the end of the street, or to the mailbox, or just off your doorstep. You still get outside and move your body.

But don't forget the most important part: do it all with kindness to yourself.

I remember the anxious excitement of picking out new school supplies. The smell of a new classroom, newness and excitement for the year. Even though my school days are over, I still like to take this time of the year to remember that I will always remain a student of life — however, to be in a state where I am receptive to learning, I must first care of myself. Just like a tree won’t grow tall without first having a strong foundation to support its growth, caring for ourselves sets us up to receive knowledge and truly grow.
