Cerebral Flatulence

Derek's feeble attempt at sharing a portion of his cerebrum.

Anonymous asked: Your boyfriend is so skinny and scrawny I mean no offense he has a cute face but how do you find him so attractive?

You’re absolutely right, friend :) He is skinny and maybe even a bit scrawny.

Have you ever heard of Ulcerative Colitis? It’s a horrible, horrible condition that affects the large intestine. Imagine having your large intestine full of mouth sores. Now imagine that the sores grow and grow and inflame and clog up your intestine so that you can’t even digest properly so now you’re not getting the nutrients you need from the food and you’re bleeding internally. Sounds awful right? Now imagine being absolutely healthy and fit and strong and handsome one week, then losing 25 pounds in 4 days and not knowing why. Then going to the doctor and having him give you medication that doesn’t work because he didn’t diagnose you properly. So now it gets worse and worse and you can’t eat anything because it hurts too much and you can’t control your bowel movements and you go to another doctor and he tells you to go straight to the hospital because you’re dying. You have a week to live. You’re now being given the medication that cancer patients are given. But you can’t die. You’re only 18 and it’s your senior year and you’re captain of the soccer team and you’re a successful manager at Chick-Fil-A and you’re smitten by this girl who (you believe) hasn’t noticed you yet (That’s me! hehe). But you have to let go. You have to understand, so you lay your life before God and you cry a lot but you know that His plan is ultimately better and you spend your seemingly last days in prayer and you’re not scared. And all of a sudden, slowly, the pain starts to go away. You start feeling better. You’re cheeks fill in and your skin gets its golden color back and you start to feel stronger. You start to move without shaking and then standing, and then walking. You’re healing little by little! Although you can hardly eat anything you used to, like meat or dairy or gluten, you can slowly get back to a normal state. You’ll have to sacrifice some things you loved, like working out often, playing sports and doing too many active things because you’re still sick and you always will be, but you’re alive. And you’re even more alive than you were before because life is so valuable to you now. Lucky for you this is only imagination. This is Gabriel’s life. And I praise God every day for him because He knew how happy this boy makes so many people, even me who wasn’t a part of his life yet.

So yeah, he might be a little skinny for your taste, but I look at his weight like a scar. It might stay with him forever, who knows. He might regain his muscularity one day but I love him exactly the way he is. Because his emotional and spiritual strength are so powerful. He is like my rock. And there is so much grace and love and wisdom and strength inside his soul that I never worry about his body. And it is strong, by the way, don’t let me fool you, he can do things that some very healthy men can’t even do. He is stronger than any other boy I’ve ever met, only in every way. And I am so happy and so grateful that I have the privilege of being his best friend. That I can hold his strong hands and rest in his strong arms. It’s been 3 years since his first encounter with Colitis, and it surely won’t be his last. But it’s a constant, daily struggle of watching his diet and activity and praying and rejoicing and loving. My boy is a trooper and I am forever grateful that he’s mine.

That’s fucked up. That’s real fucked up. That’s some ice spider shit and I do not approve.

That is the sickest shit ever

i just imagined a tiny little ice-spider on the mirror singing ‘let it go’ as he builds his little icy webby fortress.

Lately I’ve been fantasizing about bumming it in a van around the country. This one would be perfect.
