Hi I'm K, and I'm a super duper autistic & otherwise brain weird, gay ass trans woman(-ish)
Fluent in Dutch & English, rusty intermediate(-ish) in Japanese, and somewhat capable of Esperanto
Occasionally I lift a weight, or do a woodwork
I'm super sensitive and care intensely about many things, injustice and unfairness in their many incarnations hurt me almost physically
My mental state fluctuates a lot, and anxiety is my constant companion, so I may drop in & out
psa, covid-19, mental health
Reminder to check in with friends and family during the pandemic, pandemics tend to exacerbate mental health issues whether through axiety or fear, in this case this is the most severe pandemic in a generation if not a century and measures being taken are lot more aggressive which adds more uncertainty, and with lockdowns and isolation people with pre-existing mental illnesses may feel alone, and those with no diagnosed mental health conditions might even be pushed into the realm of acute mental health crisis.
Be kind, check in with friends and family, do it via video calls ideally but we will see an epidemic of mental health issues during this pandemic and we need to be proactive and supportive to reduce that impact.

hey so we have two disabled trans women in this house atm, one of whom is in the process of filing for disability and doesn't have it yet, and one older low-income gay man, very vulnerable to coronavirus, who has no more work for the rest of the month, so if anyone would like to help us, i know things are tough for everyone right now but anything helps #transcrowdfund
I'd laugh if it wasn't so sad, but it is quite ironic that I, with a lifetime of panic attacks & horrible anxiety & lightspeed autistic catastrophizing, am the calm & collected one when shit goes really wrong.
Maybe, it's exactly *because* of that though. I've dealt with it so much, my mental muscles have gotten strong and make dealing with it easier. Much like physical exercise will make you physically stronger and make dealing with heavy shit easier.
Then again, I've always been this way for as long as I can remember, so who knows?
Queer autistic crazy trans woman(-ish), cares deeply about many things she has little power to affect, and generally tries not to let the world turn her bitter
