something i’ve been meaning to post a while about interactions onhere:
i’m always extremely low on energy so if you reply to one of my posts i won’t always reply back. especially if it’s on a jokey post and you’re trying to continue the joke – i usually just can’t keep that going! i can usually come up with a handful of good arrangements of words in a day. it’s nice of you though!

#introduction 

I’m Alex. I’m 30, my pronouns are he/him, & I live in Scotland. I was previously on KNZK – thanks @pisscotheque for inviting me here!

I’m an artist & film festival programmer but as of recently I’m taking time out. I have ME/CFS, an autoimmune condition that means I have no energy and most activity messes me up. So! I’m mostly housebound.

I studied in Japan & can speak some Japanese. I like Pokemon Go, experimental art & unusual music. Let’s 🙌 proceed 🏃 to be friends 👯‍♂️ on line! 🌐

coming up with a catch-all collective term for any and all people who annoy me, even if those people have absolutely nothing else in common whatsoever, and then logging on to the internet in the morning and being all like "argh! i can't believe the annoyerati are at it again!!!"

help needed, question for UK trans folk/allies, :boosts_ok_gay:​ 

hi,

I need suggestions of safe organisations that could help trans people.

I know of certain young trans folk in the UK who are dealing with serious problems re: housing, abusive families, school oppression, homelessness, mental health etc. they are not willing to contact orgs or official institutions, therapists etc. due to fear and trauma.

can anyone suggest me either:

- transgender-led, or at least *radically* progressive, queer support orgs that would be willing to talk with me first on their behalf till I can guarantee them that their autonomy as young people will be taken seriously, and/or

- anarchist groups who would be willing to show solidarity and are queer-led or knowledgeable about queer issues (no anti-"idpol" edgy left, no toxic masculinity please)?

please contact me on matrix at @mommy:transmom.love, or DM this alt for more contact methods. boosts are appreciated.

Using a heart rate monitor (HRM) to better manage #MECFS
gwenfarsgarden.info/2021/06/us

New post talking about how using a HRM is changing my behaviour & will hopefully bring some improvement to my ME symptoms.

Yes, this was the reason for all my questions about Heart Rate Monitors a couple of months ago :)
