How have you been caring for yourself lately?

A fat white woman with long red-blonde hair is shown from the mid-back up, lying on her stomach on a bed with light blue sheets with her arms folded and looking at the camera. A small gray cat loafs near her.

I went to the chiropractor this morning and I am wiped, y’all. I’m grateful to have the freedom of a flexible schedule that allows me to lie down for a while, so I’m going to go do that.

This much-needed chiro adjustment wasn’t something I particularly wanted to do, but that’s what radical self-care is: taking care of ourselves even when it isn’t fun.

(Because people often think fat women all look alike, this is one of my stock photo models, not me. Although that is my cat, Blue!)
