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!
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! 🌐
help needed, question for UK trans folk/allies,
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
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 :)
only side effect i've had so far is a craving for absolute bangers??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnigNbYVQJE
