    Yes it’s a real service. I do volunteer work for a rape crisis support service in my city and texting is one of the features we provide as well. But just to boost its credibility, I tried it myself:

    You can also text “Steve” to 741741 if you’re a young person of color. The website for more info is stevefund.org

    My understanding is that it’s more multicultural and some folks feel more comfy with that in mind!

    THIS is what I was looking for a few weeks ago when I was in crisis; reblog to save a life!

    Yes, lets imagine a world WITHOUT MUSLIMS, shall we?

    Without Muslims you wouldn’t have:

  • Coffee
  • Cameras
  • Experimental Physics
  • Chess
  • Soap
  • Shampoo
  • Perfume/spirits
  • Irrigation
  • Crank-shaft, internal combustion engine, valves, pistons
  • Combination locks
  • Architectural innovation (pointed arch -European Gothic cathedrals adopted this technique as it made the building much stronger, rose windows, dome buildings, round towers, etc.)
  • Surgical instruments
  • Anesthesia
  • Windmill
  • Treatment of Cowpox
  • Fountain pen
  • Numbering system
  • Algebra/Trigonometry
  • Modern Cryptology
  • 3 course meal (soup, meat/fish, fruit/nuts)
  • Crystal glasses
  • Carpets
  • Checks
  • Gardens used for beauty and meditation instead of for herbs and kitchen.
  • University
  • Optics
  • Music
  • Toothbrush
  • Hospitals
  • Bathing
  • Quilting
  • Mariner’s Compass
  • Soft drinks
  • Pendulum
  • Braille
  • Cosmetics
  • Plastic surgery
  • Calligraphy
  • Manufacturing of paper and cloth
  • It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.

    It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.

    It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.

    It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.

    It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.

    It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.

    It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey

    It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.

    It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.

    The list goes on………..

    Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Anders Breivik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

    Everything Is AWFUL and I’m Not Okay: Questions to Ask Before Giving Up on Yourself

    Are you hydrated?

    If not, have a glass of water. Dehydration can mimic or increase feelings associated with anxiety and a well hydrated brain functions optimally. Avoid excess caffeine. 

    Have you eaten in the past three hours?

    Don’t be a victim of hanger! Get some food–something with protein, not just simple carbs or high-fat. Nuts, hummus, and veggies are great options to feed your studying brain. Keep healthy snacks within reach to avoid mindlessly chowing down on sweets. 

    Have you stretched your legs in the past day? 

    If not, do so right now. If you don’t have the energy or time for a run or a trip to the gym, just walk around the block or building. Even minimal exercise preps the mind for learning so that you can focus better and recall things easier, plus it’s good to get a change of scenery. 

    Have you said something nice to someone in the past day? 

    Do so, whether online or in person. Make it genuine! We bet your study partner would appreciate a compliment. 

    Have you moved your body to music in the past day?

    If not, jog for the length of a song at your favorite tempo, or just dance around your bedroom for the length of an upbeat song (singing along is a bonus)

    Have you cuddled a living being in the past two days?

    If not, do so. Don’t be afraid to ask for hugs from friends of friends’ pets. Most of them will enjoy the cuddles too; you’re not imposing. 

    Have you started or changed any medications in the past couple of weeks, including skipped doses or a change in generic prescription brand? 

    That may be screwing with your head. Give things a few days, then talk to your doctor if it doesn’t settle down. 

    If daytime: are you dressed?

    If no, put on clean clothes that aren’t PJs. Give yourself permission to wear something special, whether it’s a funny t-shirt or a pretty dress. 

    If nighttime: are you sleepy and fatigued but resisting going to sleep?

    Put on PJs, make yourself cozy in bed with a teddy bear and the sound of falling rain, and close your eyes for fifteen minutes while focusing on breathing deeper with every breath- no electronic screens allowed! Adequate sleep is a necessity for stress management.

    Do you feel ineffective? 

    Pause right now and get something small completed, whether it’s responding to an email, loading the dishwasher, or tidying up your room. Good job!

    Do you feel unattractive?

    Take a darn selfie. Your friends will remind you how great you look. You are always insta-worthy. 

    Do you feel paralyzed by indecision?

    Give yourself ten minutes to sit back and figure out a game plan for the day. If a particular decision or problem is still being a roadblock, simply set it aside for now, and pick something else that seems doable. Right now, the important part is to break through that stasis, even if it means doing something trivial. 

    Have you over-exerted yourself lately–physically, emotionally, socially, or intellectually? 

    That can take a toll that lingers for days. Give yourself a break in that area, whether it’s physical rest, taking some time alone, or relaxing with some silly entertainment for a little. Time spent refreshing yourself is never time “wasted!” 

    Have you waited a week? 

    Sometimes or perception of life is skewed, and we can’t even tell that we’re not thinking clearly, and there’s no obvious external cause. It happens. Keep yourself going for a full week, whatever it takes, and see if you still feel the same way then. 

    You’ve made it this far; and you will make it through. You are stronger than you think.
