why must we “scope for housemates” and “hold tours and interviews”, is it not enough to simply vibe? and if someone vibes hard enough they win and the room is theirs? i do not want to talk to any of these people even though they all seem great
lol apparently the vancouver cishet white rich SuperCrip dude who acts as an accessibility consultant & trainer (but has no idea what that actually looks like and has set local disability rights & crip justice movements back *decades*)…. has an inaccessible website. shocker.
i need critical mutual aid
hi, im will, im critically ill, and now im at my wits end. im a 22 year old disability educator living out in the south. im the co-chair for a handful of local events, involved closely with several LGBT/disability orgs, and well known-ish for being the Local Blind Person with the Pink Cane.
in late march i was sent to the ER by my clinics nursing hotline due to what sounded to them like a ruptured ovarian cyst. long story short: an ultrasound showed. it wasnt, and thus i was referred to a gastroenterologist for abdominal pain. since then ive been cycled through three meds.
- one worsened symptoms,
- the next did nothing,
- and the third made me sicker after i waited the allotted week to see if itd work.
the gastroenterologist also ordered a CT scan, bloodwork, etc—ruling out celiac or gastritis or what-have-you—and then abruptly left her practice without warning. my followup was with a nurse practitioner at the same clinic, who responded to my problems with the 3rd medication by upping the dosage from 72mg to 290mg.
this landed me in the ER because i misguidedly believed medical professionals always know what theyre doing. in a fit of nausea i crawled into a hot bath, where my hair started falling out in fistfuls. i developed what i was worried was tardive dyskinesia, something im still risking with essentially every medication i take. the next thing internal medicine tried me on had similarly awful effects, given that it interacts with each and every one of my other meds while also being known to make even mentally stable people uncontrollably suicidal.
now my psychiatrist wants to put me on fucking levodopa, im seeing another specialist today to try to cover all my medical blanks while i triage with a teaching hospital, and in the meantime im losing massive amounts of weight because eating puts me in pain. im taking my meds crushed in applesauce and drinking a metric fuckton of clear ensure with various nutritional powders added into it. ive gone from weighing 95lbs to 70lbs. the last time i worked was in mid april, im on a payment plan for 5 different ER visits, and i have no idea what im going to do moving forward.
right now im trying to put together around $2000 to cover one month of rent, co-pays, medication, bills, gas money, and replacing things like nasal cannula or oxygen concentrator parts. its a steep goal, but two doctors appointments is $100. going to physical therapy twice a week is $100. co-pays are kicking my ass, payment plans are still expensive, and thats after hitting my first deductible three months into the year. between all of the bullshit i havent worked in nearly a month, and my savings are slim. weve been lucky enough to receive grocery help from a local org, but we are in crisis here.
i can provide proof of hospitalization, co-pay, medications, and all other expenses via DM.

quite literally did wake up like this
image description: a black and white photograph of me sitting outside our apartment in my manual wheelchair and looking off to the side. i wear nasal cannula with huge quill encased in resin earrings pulled through them. i sit with my arms in my lap, wearing sweatpants and a flowy tanktop and looking just otherwise disheveled. i hold a pair of sunglasses in my hand.

twitter’s great because you can in the one tweet watch People With Careers And Nuclear Families bemoan your primary form of communication with loved ones as some kind of soul-sucking energy sap that gives you ‘nothing’ in return, and then the next tweet find out that someone you’ve known for five years is dead.

work it burger make it nuggets do it nuggets makes us burger. more than nuggets hour after our burger never over
i never add comments to videos because i think it’s annoying and unnecessary but i just wanted to say that i am literally obsessed with this video. i can’t stop thinking about it. it’s been days and this replays in my head like a record stuck on loop i cannot stop thinking about BURGER. Nuggets….nuggets… BURGER! and then the little kitten jpeg just bounces in time with the beat it’s perfection. ive never seen a video meet all my standards before.
this is the funniest photo I’ll ever be part of (they/them btw)

I was expecting some kind of deranged TERF outburst during quarantine since it seems being forced to stay home is making all the wealthy reactionaries act absolute bonkers, but I sure as hell wasn’t expecting it to be “well-known leaders of UK terfism having an embarrassing twitter meltdown in which they yell that forcing the cleaning lady to put herself at risk of contracting the deadly coronavirus is actually a feminist act, because endangering the lives of working class women is easier than convincing your husband and kids to help clean up their own house”.
sure would like medical professionals to perhaps… consider my medical history… before prescribing me medications…
sure i have many debilitating chronic medical issues but tbh if i could get rid of any one thing my body is capable of it would be styes, fuck those things they’re bullshit. unnecessary.
🌬 wispy and delightful ☁️

Trees, like animals, can also experience albinism, though it is extremely rare.
the reason it’s rare is because without chlorophyll, the plant can’t get energy, and dies shortly after sprouting unless it has some other source of food. so if you see a plant as big as the one in the picture that doesn’t have any green in its leaves, it’s getting its nutrition from the roots of a neighboring plant of the same species, feeding on the sugars created by the other plant’s photosynthesis.
albino plants are basically vampires.
For a long time, scientists thought they were parasites, and couldn’t figure out why the bigger plants didn’t release chemicals to kill them.
Turns out, the lil’ ghost redwoods benefit their hosts by filtering toxins and acting as a sort of backup immune system.
They’re vampires, and they’re commensal, symbiotic mutualists!
this is super cool! I had no idea
