I'm Not Sleepy Yet...: NLD question, because I... →
andbonnykate: Does anyone else out there with NLD constantly feel like their bothering people by talking to them, asking questions, or otherwise interacting? Like yesterday I was supposed to be handing out flyers for work at a block party but I didn’t do a very good job as I was perpetually afraid I was being… Yeah, I feel like that often.

thegutlesswonder: I wish I could make my own version of Cosmo. It would have articles about caring for natural back hair and preventing chub rub and the importance of binding safely (no ace bandages!) and bedazzling your prosthetic leg and avoiding feeling guilty when you don’t have the spoons to do things with…

My latest blog post is on “remote intimacy”: What it is and why it matters, especially to suburbanites.

And genderqueer. And a lot of other things you don’t know.
When people talk about burnout in activism, it seems like they’re usually talking about doing too many activities or the work related to that. But I feel burned out emotionally. And then like I have “no right” to feel burned out, because I haven’t actually been doing that much concrete work. But, I feel how I feel, and that’s legit. How am I supposed to not feel...

They don’t do anything for me but enable me to secure gainful employment (which okay, that’s good, but that’s not all that makes life… Learning social skills made me more socially anxious. I have more friends now,...
