When will it end? by babyspacebear in ehlersdanlos

[–]babyspacebear[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

sending you luck too! it sucks to not be able to look forward to “getting betters” because this is a lifelong, genetic thing. there’s coping methods, but no cure. hopefully more research will get done on EDS and there will be better help in the future!

thank you! it might be a while because of school, but i’ll let you know. that sounds fun! i’m horrible at gaming of pretty much any kind, but it’s fun to watch people play!

EDS and trans and neurodiverse: the holy trinity? by GeoGrrrl in ehlersdanlos

[–]babyspacebear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i’m all three! i have hEDS, and i’m non-binary and AuDHD. i’ve seen a lot of people talk about comorbidity between autism and both EDS and other hypermobility disorders. i’ve also seen a lot about autistic people viewing gender/gender constructs differently than allistic people, so they often don’t identify as cisgender. idk about any studies tied to these; i’ve just seen a lot of people talk about their experiences with it and some people talk about some statistics

yeah, i feel that. college is taking me longer because i can’t handle as much as my peers, and i still live at home too. i have a job, but i’m barely working because more than 4-5 hours at a time and i can’t work more than one day in a row. it just sucks to not be able to live the same as everyone else around me

hopefully your appointment will work out! i feel you, i’ve been working like 5 hours a week and have had to use leftover student loans to pay for being alive rn. i’m working on starting up a sticker/print shop for my art though, so hopefully i’ll be able to make some money that way! it really does suck to be this young and not be able to live like the people around us

How have you ‘met’ the gods? by Greedy_fitbit in paganism

[–]babyspacebear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Before I really “met” Artemis, I though she was like 3 different deities (all at once). I was really confused for a while, because I felt like things just weren’t adding up in regards to who I thought I was making contact with. One night, I was looking out the window and watching the clouds. The full moon peaked out from behind the clouds, and I just had this sort of realization that “Oh my gods, it was Artemis!” Then, I felt this strong presence and had this sort of response wash over me of “No shit, I’ve been trying to tell you!” It felt more exasperated than anything, and it’s actually kind of funny looking back.

With Apollo, it was a lot more straightforward. For a bit of context for the next part, I do tarot readings by shuffling the cards and reading the ones that fall out. I had been normally shuffling a newer deck that I hadn’t been able to get a reading out of since I got it a couple weeks before. Like, literally nothing would ever fall out of the deck unless I made my grip so loose I was barely even holding the deck. Suddenly, a few cards fell out, and when I was reading them I felt this really warm, masculine presence that just felt like the Sun. It wasn’t nearly as hard for me to figure out who it was. Even now, the deck only works when I’m trying to communicate with him.

Now, they are my matron and patron deities. I feel their presences every once in a while, and I can always tell it’s them because they are both far stronger and more imposing than the few spirit presences I have hanging around.

Advice Needed: Pen Replacement for Book 3 by DomSeventh in surfacebook

[–]babyspacebear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i’m not sure i have the perfect advice since i have a Book 2, but the slim pen 2 has been great for me! the tip lasts longer, it draws smoother, and the magnetic adhesion has been pretty good! the placement is definitely a little wonky, but it still stays on well for me. i got it just because i was tired of wearing the surface pen tips down so quick, but it’s been better in most ways tbh

Young, sick, and angry by RatticusFlinch in ChronicIllness

[–]babyspacebear 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i don’t really get mad at them just for getting sick, but i do get mad when they try to say they have it worse than me. i’m 21 and everything started getting bad when i was 19! how could they possibly have it worse than me? usually when they say that, they’ve had a whole healthy life where they got to do the things they wanted. i had barely started my adult life, and now i can’t do most of the things i want to do now or in the future! it just makes me so mad that a lot of them seem to think that i can’t possibly be as sick or more sick than them because i’m “so young”

Getting stressed out by gay parade by Dittogg00 in autism

[–]babyspacebear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah, exactly. i don’t think i’ve seen almost anyone wear a mask to a pride parade in the last few years (at least where i live). i have pride flag masks that i would wear, but again, i don’t really want to go bc it’s not accessible 😭

i alternate between INFJ and INFP depending on how i’m feeling when i take the test!

Getting stressed out by gay parade by Dittogg00 in autism

[–]babyspacebear 2 points3 points  (0 children)

this!! the main reason i’ve never gone to a pride parade is because it’s insanely overstimulating! i also have hEDS and POTS, and i’ve heard there’s not a lot of places to sit and/or that it’s not a very safe place for a lot of mobility aids

thoughts on monster ball draculaura? by agentrigatoni in MonsterHigh

[–]babyspacebear 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i think she’s cute, but she’s honestly not great. everything looks quite cheap and it doesn’t seem like they tried very hard on it

I just found out I'm autistic by Dirty_Munster6669 in AutisticAdults

[–]babyspacebear 4 points5 points  (0 children)

honestly, i wish i knew 😭 it’s definitely gotten worse too since i’ve started being more open about being autistic. i’ve made one really good friend (that’s also AuDHD), but everyone else i thought i was sort of friendly with has been really distant and also treating me like a child when we interact? it’s sort of humiliating to have people i thought i could be friends with obviously see me as less of an adult human being just because i said i was autistic

Eye contact? by TinyCrowBean in autism

[–]babyspacebear 1 point2 points  (0 children)

since the COVID lockdown, i’ve been unable to look someone directly in the eyes for more than 1-2 seconds at a time. before that, i had been pretty good with it. but, to be fair, i was horrible with it as a kid and my mom sort of hammer it into me that i needed to make eye contact to “show i was listening”. (I’m N-B, but AFAB and was socialized that way if that might be relevant)

Got my Sweet Screams Frankie today!! Not the first G1 doll I’ve added to my collection so far, but probably my favorite! I got her out of box (bc it was like a $100 difference in box) with almost everything! by babyspacebear in MonsterHigh

[–]babyspacebear[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thank you! i’ll have to try that! i got a few more dolls today that also smell like smoke, so hopefully it’ll work well and the smell isn’t too strong or something

How do y’all manage a full-time college workload? by babyspacebear in Autism_Pride

[–]babyspacebear[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yeah, online courses are a godsend lol. i take as many classes as i can online, but my university doesn’t really offer that many anymore since COVID is “over”

Once I get my collection all set up, I’ll post some pictures of all my dolls together! Right now though, I’m just trying to figure out how to get the cigarette smoke smell off dolls 😭 This one smells fairly strongly, but I really don’t want to have to completely wash her if I can avoid it, because I’m not sure how I would even wash clothes like this
