Hi! I may have subscribed to your journal because you wrote something interesting that showed up while I was browsing dreamwidth or reading my network page. Perhaps you're reading this because you think I wrote something of note. Either way, welcome.

I try to avoid hate speech of any kind on my journal. If I slip up and say something heedless of my own privilege, please tell me - in a non-flaming way. These are teachable moments, not times to whack people over the head with a newspaper.

I could list an alphabet soup of identities, but suffice it to say thatI'm queer (with a wonderful partner of 8+ years, omg am I that old already?); a poet; I ride a recumbent trike; am somewhat obsessed with knitting and other fiber arts; have been taught "proper" grammar and now rebel against both standardized US spelling and the historical ideas behind proper grammar. I have an Etsy store and an extensive Flickr library of some of the things I've made...check out the sidebar for details. I have chronic Lyme disease and/or fibromyalgia and/or dysautonomia and a host of other physical issues, as well as some mental health stuff. Writing about that will probably be behind a filter, let me know if you want access. I am a Buddhist Pagan with atheist tendencies. I have a BA in History, but I decided that history is way too emotionally draining for me. (One summer researching lynching was enough for my brain.)

What else? I love dogs, reading, writing, history, feminism, my partner, drag shows, gender bending of any kind, Star Trek, Patrick Stewart, Yorkshire, the great outdoors, anything related to space travel, Neil deGrasse Tyson, public broadcasting...have recently begun to get addicted to the Avengers and Foyle's War.

Feel free to add me, I will probably grant you access after I get to know you a bit although I may not put you behind a filter immediately unless you specifically request it. I look forward to getting to know more people on dreamwidth and beyond!

Hi! I'm going to grant you access to my DW because it's completely access-only. If you'd like to do the same, go ahead! A bit about me: I'm 25, queer but in a het relationship with a partner who gets it, have a whole host of mental health issues, just graduated from law school, and I'm wordy. I'm doing the 100 things challenge, which I need to catch up on, and I'm posting pics with descriptions for it. I also post the occasional fic rec both to my own stuff and others. If you're interested in all of this, you can subscribe! If not, I completely understand. :D

You do crafts AND you appreciate bitesized cleaning! I like that. Just wanted to say hello before I subscribe to your journal. :)

Hey, [personal profile] kaberett suggested we might get along. I'm 29, queer/genderqueer, disabled (I actually also have Lyme), and live just outside NYC. I'm a writer and maintainer of [community profile] vaginapagina. I'm trying to use DW more regularly, so I'm looking for some friends over here. :)

Hi there! I've seen you a few times on the journals of mutual friends and thought it might be nice to get to know you a bit better.

To introduce myself: I'm 31, live in Australia and am an editor by trade. I love dogs, photography, reading and writing. I'm a Druid with a partner who is tentatively Zen Buddhist.

I look forward to getting to know you better!

Hello! I've seen you around in a few different places, and you seem neat, so I've just subscribed. ^_^

Since other people are telling you bits about themselves: I'm Canadian, mid-thirties, and a fannish wordgeek. I don't do anything at all crafty, but I benefit from and greatly appreciate my best friend's lovely knitting, so I'm happy to admire people's work. *g*

Hi! We have a few similar subscriptions and decidedly similar interests, so I added you, and granted you access if you'd like to poke around.

Hi! So I think I'm doing this out of order, but I've seen you around, I'm queer and Aspie, I don't knit but I admire craft stuff, I like books and things, and I have some pagan and humanist influences. Also, cats.

>> i also have chronic pain <<

Understood. I don't know very much about chronic pain, and I will probably make mistakes. I will try to learn and not to place an undue burden on you to correct me.

>> which is on my chart as fibro,<<


>> might be EDS,<<

Also noted.

>> but i feel ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ pretty much sums up all potential diagnoses.<<


>>also i like the social model of disability better than the medical model, <<

This makes perfect sense to me.

>> or better yet a blend? because chronic pain sucks and i don't really want to just embrace it, actual treatment that works would be good.<<

A model of medicine that embraces creating good lives as opposed to fixing illness would include that possibility, I think...

(I'm responding to these specific comments to note something that is important about you that I don't fully grok and be sure I am paying attention.)

Just FYI

I have subscribed to you, and wanted to let you know there's no obligation to follow/subscribe back. I know I've got hardly anything visible at the moment to read.

I'm kind of scattered at the moment, I recently imported my entries from LJ, but they're all "private" mode until I sort them out, which is kinda waiting on RL at the moment. I did actually flesh out my profile a bit today, so that might help, lol. :)
