On the subject of epi pens:
My best friend Ash is near-deathly allergic to beestings, waspstings, anything involving bees. In middle school, she brought an epi pen to school because they wouldn't do a thing about the wasp nests (you heard me, there were at least five outside the cafeteria and they were constantly getting into classrooms.); because prescriptions aren't allowed in school, she had to get a doctor's note and a note from her parents for her to have it with her through the schoolday.
Despite this, the nurse took it off of her, citing school policy and whatnot.
It's a lawsuit waiting to happen; if Ash had gotten stung, she could have died because the stupid nurse took the epi pen off of her. Ash had a doctor's note, for dog's sake, and it even said she had to have it with her!
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
