Why I don’t believe in “self care” (and how to make it obsolete)


Almost all of the constitution and politicians talking about equality, but we know that even the healthy are unequal. Doctor says it is not health to eat McDonald but I think McDonald’s is gift from God because it is the only food I can afford.
