The addition of a cw button and incredibly easy-to-use, front-and-centre accessibility options for posts has essentially just proven how many people are committed to consistently and passionately not giving a shit about disabled+neurodivergent people. Yes there are nuances and yes there are things people can't be expected to anticipate, but you're not entitled to your content being seen more than I'm entitled to not be retraumatised by it.

I started taking my statins again for my familial hypercholesterolaemia but I've been awake at this ridiculous hour (2:00 am)due to statin pains in my arms and legs.
I don't want to die of a heart attack at 40 so I'm hoping if I tough it out for a month or two I might get used to the statins.

hmm, compulsion city: population me.
I'd probably start vacuuming if I went downstairs.
PSA for anyone from a defunct instance who still wants to view their archive, and cant because it's all json:
I made a python script that generates a human-readable html page from you're archive that you can open in your browser to view your old posts.
If you've got python installed, just plop it into the archive, run it, and open the new "processed_archive.html" file it makes in your web browser to read your archive!

hard. laying here until 00:00. I remembered it being easier when I did it from 99kg.
@PinkCathodeCat I may be a pessimist but I do have a small amount of optimism, and by small I mean it is so tiny it obeys quantum physics.
stressed. job agency are fucking me around, as they say they can't get my study approved as a requirement. so I haven't been able to study all week. one assignment due on 10 September, one being released on 24 august due on 20 September.
hopefully my meeting with matchworks doesn't end in me having a meltdown like the first time they tried to say my study was insufficient

just waiting for my final twitter data and then I'll nuke it. something I should have done ages ago but I was too emotionally attached to memories of my past.
RT @[email protected]: Give me your gentleman smoking crack in Starbucks bathroom. Your lady injecting in her neck. Your older man drinking pints of vodka on corner. I will be their doctor. Let’s just create space for them to live, to be treated like humans & to engage services as needed & ready.
My #mastodonadmins friends: I think the wave of spammers is going to get worse, and I think it goes a lot further than just spam. Basically, I think Russia is going to try to use us the same way they used Twitter and Facebook in the 2016 elections. We can't let that happen.
I wrote a little about this at https://blog.freeradical.zone/the-russians-are-coming/ which includes something you can do on your own instance today to help.
If you are in Australia you should do some research into the new legitslature for nation wide medical records, and decide whether to opt out or not at https://myhealthrecord.gov.au
I've opted out because I'm not trusting the law very much in this case, plus Ausgov has a tendency to fuck up security so a gov controled db of med records isn't very good.
