Breast Cancer discussed on Mental Health In Minnesota


And it's something that i often don't really talk about okay and so but i'll just kinda reference it a little bit here. I think it's super important to remember the context of like some of the words. That were using select. Mutual came up all why and this year of like a new one thing or whatever but it was interesting because i mutual aid has been something that a lot of you know. Marginalized groups have used such as disability communities.

Yeah so. I'm saying that because i think like and again i'm trying to get back to like learning more about the the person that made that made term self-care popular. Yes because now south cares related to some of the stuff that you said earlier and And i think because let's coded all of us light then.
