All right let's do this one last time #introductions
Hi I'm Becca! I'm an nb femme lesbian living with my 2 wives and our 2 black cats in British Columbia. I have autism and struggle with hyperacusis, a hearing disability (i hear everything so well that it causes chronic pain)
Here's some of my fave work!
a reminder for everyone struggling today: please remember to use filters and mutes liberally.
its completely fine to not know everything all the time. maybe consider asking a friend to filter a little bit of news to you when you ask for it instead of letting social media blast you away with it.
its fine if even jokes and shitposts upset you. its not ANY kind of failing on your part. staying mentally healthy goes a long way towards staying physically healthy.
I know we're going into uncertain times, but if you have the spare resources please consider throwing them at creators you like.
Instead of streaming that album maybe pick it up via Bandcamp or (gasp!) get some of the physical objects they sell.
Drop a few extra $$ in their Patreon or Liberapay accounts this month. Find creators that make things you like and give them some extra $$.
Tours are drying up left and right. Belts are being tightened.
Every piece of medical advice says to self-quarantine and /call/ your doctor if you start to show symptoms, and only /come in/ if they tell you to.
Please, please, stop telling people to go hang out at doctors offices and hospitals because they've got a slight fever or scratchy throat. For most of the northern hemisphere, those are normal allergy symptoms during this time of year!
Listen directly to the guidelines of the WHO and, if you trust your local government, them, or local hospitals.
I've said this before and I'll keep saying.
Not everyone that has all the progressive labels in their profiles are actually that.
