PRUSSIA IS LEFT HANDED

THAT MEANS HE GOT THE SHIT BEAT OUT OF HIM EVEN MORE THAN JUST FOR THE FACT THAT HE WAS ALBINO BECAUSE BEING LEFT HANDED WASN’T VERY WELL ACCEPTED AND IF YOU WE’RE LEFT HANDED IT WAS ALIGNED WITH SATAN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
IT WAS JUST REALLY REALLY BAD TO BE LEFT HANDED.

NO, BUT IT WAS VERY BAD TO BE LEFT HANDED. LIKE REALLY BAD.

I seriously just wrote an entire paragraph long headcanon about that, then I scroll down my dash a few hours later and find this. Anyway, yeah. People with albinism were viewed as demons or demon children, and people who were left-handed were thought of being evil and associated with Satan because it was uncommon.
This is very symbolic, though, because he was taken in by the Teutonic Order who protected him. Even in the official wiki, it was stated that they protected him. They saw the good in his heart and didn’t want him to get hurt anymore. Plus, he was a child of Germania who somehow made it all the way to Jerusalem, so he was alone. He had no one until the knights came along. They taught him kindness and also how to defend himself. However, he was still a rambunctious trickster. Then again, how many little boys aren’t rambunctious tricksters?
So, in the end, our little Gilbert was treated like trash by most people. He might have even been treated like trash by a few in the Order throughout his youth. Even through all the pain, he tries to be nice to people and reassure himself that he is awesome. If he didn’t… well… imagine how depressing he would be. Remember, those who smile and laugh the most are often the most depressed.

Wow Google, thank you for the stunning support! The effort you put into representing this cause is fantastic! Like, wow, this doesn’t even compare to what you did for the DW 50th!

Word.

The Google Doodle usually depicts holidays, fun anniversaries, and exciting events.  More serious causes, like remembering 9/11, anti-abuse, and cancer awareness, are represented in a solemn manner with a ribbon at the bottom of the page.  The ribbon is a more respectful way for Google to show support than plastering it on every page in the form of a novelty “doodle,” especially when it may be triggering to some Google users.

let’s talk about the physical affects of chronic anxiety because they’re hardly ever acknowledged

  • upset stomach and vomiting
  • ulcers
  • muscle aches
  • chronic fatigue
  • hormonal problems
  • irregular menstrual cycles
  • insomnia
  • infections
  • lowered immune system
  • migraines
  • shortness of breath
  • dizziness
  • heart palpitations
  • teeth-grinding

it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious
