ableism / Chronic pain / jumping through hoops with doctors
Doctor: You have fibromyalgia.
Me: Oh, sweet. Finally a doctor who recognizes that.
Doctor: Here are some meds to manage the pain and magnesium to help with cramping.
Me: Cool! Can I also get a doctor's note for my work so they know I have fibromyalgia?
Me: ... Why not?
Doctor: Because I don't treat chronic pain. You need to see a specialist to get a note.
Me: ............... but you just.......... treated me....... for chronic pain............ and I need the note *now* for my work so I don't get fired when I miss days......
enthusiasm caps, queer religion collective
R: we talked with the Razor Blade Collective on their first meeting and they're everything we dreamed of, not just a queer umbanda crew but actively engaging with all the stuff we care about involving it. whitewashing, stereotypes, ancestral debt, gender vs. tradition etc.
E: "We're going to organise a massive gira exclusively with LGBTQ folk, I'm telling you right now we're going to change the structures of the universe so much that it's going to RAIN GLITTER" ✨✨✨
E: even the cis gays there have concluded the same thing as us, pombagiras are totally travestis
C: that one's kinda obvious
R: they're also organising concretely in many ways to support queer folk who face prejudice in terreiros. we're going to update umbanda girls
E: I look forward to try and be part of this and describe myself as "elilla, anarchist, possessed umbanda witch, registered antifa and member of the Razor Blade Collective" ( ꈍᴗꈍ)
C: come on, you know you ~are~ a part of this already, folx there love you too
