1.What Pystepsofen is and what it is used for
Pystepsofen is intended to help promote the feeling of being seen in persons with invisible disabilities. Not only do these individuals have to deal with the symptoms and experiences brought on by their invisible disability, but they also have to deal with the loneliness and frustration that comes from passing as "normal." It is often up to that individual whether or not to disclose their disability: in other words, do they voluntarily risk stigmatization, misunderstanding and/or pity in their pursuit of social connection?
Additionally, invisible disabilities can drain you of the energy and stamina needed to face the day, which can confuse people who think there's no obvious reason for you to be so dang tired. Although the Spoon Theory is catching on, there is much left to be desired in accommodations in workplaces* and social interaction. This remedy intends to provide much needed validation, compassion, and acceptance without you having to explain or educate someone else in the process. You deserve to feel acknowledged—and even celebrated—exactly as you are.
*Remember: capitalism always manages to crush & discard folx who are not model productive workers. So often, accommodations have the goal to make you more productive, instead of accepting or being at peace with where you are in life as a human.
Also: a note about stigmatization of visible disabilities and ableism: these adversities absolutely deserve acknowledgment and consideration. Although the Rite Mendica line of remedies does not address said adversities at this time, a remedy may be developed in the future. In the meantime, please read this poem:
Do not use Pystepsofen - if you are allergic to alternative and non-traditional means of addressing existential ailments or any of the other ingredients of this remedy (listed in section 6); - if you do not actually intend to address said existential malaise in question or do not wish to be open to ideas, rituals, and creative expression; - if you are experiencing a true medical emergency. Call 911 immediately.
Warnings and precautions
DO NOT INGEST.
Always consult your doctor or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition, procedure, or treatment, whether it is a prescription medication, over-the-counter drug, vitamin, supplement, or herbal products. This remedy is an artistic alternative intended to be very non-medical in nature.
This remedy could cause hidden feelings to arise and/or difficult conversations with close relations to ensue. Proceed with caution. However, healthy amounts of vulnerability and introspection are encouraged nevertheless.
Children and adolescents This remedy is not intended to be used by an adult in the presence of children and adolescents. It is advised that adults use this remedy in an area and context that is undisturbed by children or adolescents (and even friends or partners).
Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, please be extra gentle to yourself when using any remedy. At the slightest hint of any discomfort, pause and reassess the benefit of continuing said remedy. There is no need for you to power-through or endure. Listen to your own body.
In general, there is an inordinate amount of nonsense directed at women who are pregnant, breast-feeding, or trying to conceive, and bullshit noise is the last thing in the world you need to deal with. There are so many remedies, therapies, strategies, warnings, diets, exercises, and philosophies swirling around, and if something does not work for you, then it does not work for you. End of story. Advocate for yourself.
