re: help request, income and housing situations. :boost_ok:​ 

continued update:

we have, like, some amount of freelance web design income, but not much - we can scrape together what we need to help out. if anyone could take in a disabled system, ideally either near the chicago area (we'd prefer to end up there) or somewhere nearish to atlanta (currently in the area as is), we'd appreciate it.

our parents that we're stuck with are going to be moving to a new house through the month of May, and we will be pulled into helping with this in ways we cannot physically handle, and we already know they're not considering us and our wheelchair and fucked leg at all, given they're picking out entirely multi-story homes.

if you wanna help us out with income, weld.eerie.garden/support is the way to go, and recurrent donation methods, mainly Patreon, go a long way towards making us sure we're kinda stable.

please do it!
we have a list on our website, sorted in order of priority (except email's at the top because near-everyone has it), at

we prefer to have people we can talk to on other platforms outside of a microblog sort of thing, and you're welcome to bring up things we talked about here for a more in depth discussion.

(don't boost) some Weld boundaries, on boosting, ableism, and content warning requests 

1. we post by-default privately. if the boost button is available to you, and we didn't say "don't boost" (like in this post), you can boost it.

2. we appreciate content warning requests. to put it up front, we will not cw our use of our own reclaimed slurs (like, saying we're cute cripple queers), or our chronic pain or other fundamental things to us like it. that said, you're welcome to tell us if something we post/boost could use a CW, or if our CW could be more specific. we try to take these in based on what our mutuals boost and such onto our feed.

3. please don't say ableist shit on our feed! if you're criticizing ableism, we'd prefer you cw it. if it's internalized stuff, we understand. especially things like
"lame" and "cripple"
references to intelligence or brain size
"insane"/"crazy"/etc
"psychopath"/"sociopath"
this list is not comprehensive, but you can check:

re: help request, income and housing situations. :boost_ok:​ 

so, an update, we're getting hit with a lot of pressure to get a job and move out, and we really can't stay at our parents'.

monetary support still welcome (weld.eerie.garden/support), but also, if anyone in the atlanta metro area (or, within a reasonable driving distance of that, or longer if you're willing to help us get the Hell out of this state, we don't have a car ourselves) has space for a disabled queer plural system to stay, that'd be great. we don't have much income, and don't expect to be able to help out much with rent, but. we have some savings if it comes to it.

we're, you know, in the works of trying to find some work and/or get on disability, but there's a strong chance we either don't find anything remote we can do, or if we do, we'll burn out fast or otherwise not hold onto it for long, and that we don't qualify for SSI.

help request, income and housing situations. :boost_ok:​ 

hiya! so we've had things unpinned and this has been less focal for a bit, mostly because our entire life has been a Thing lately and the stress of internalized ableism and classism was not a good addition at the time.

if you'd like to support us, links to our patreon, paypal, cashapp, and a wishlist are on weld.eerie.garden/support

currently we're stuck living with our abusive parents again, who we previously planned to cut contact with, and we will be stuck with them for... an unknown amount of time.

the house is very inaccessible, being a three story place while we use a cane and wheelchair for chronic leg pain, and we have no bedroom so we're sleeping on an air mattress in the living room. we don't really currently have a great way out of this situation.

the most direct thing is that if we have enough income to actually support ourselves, there's the potential to move out, but otherwise it's all kinda
-big shrug- rn. but even in the short term, maintaining financial independence for things like keeping up our own phone plan, getting meds, buying groceries for ourselves when our parents are dismissive of our needs, and ordering food when we can't cook, are really useful.

please, though, do make sure your own oxygen mask (that is to say, ability to survive) is affixed before helping us out at all. thanks, y'all.

quick question for the local plural cafe folks, related to sex/kink 

given that anyone at all has said to make unlisted posts, that's what we'll primarily do.

thanks for feedback yall ✨

weld streams are baaaaaack uwu

money stuff, request for help 

weld.eerie.garden/support has all the ways you can help us out

our roommates are asking for even more in rent than we guaranteeably get as income monthly (and generally, not really recognizing how our disabilities work and expecting more from us than we can give in more ways than one)

we're really stressed about this, still have to buy our own food (frequently ordering delivery because we can't actually cook very often, and only recently has the freezer not been completely stuffed with food so we can get frozen stuff that's much lower effort), pay the internet bill too, and we're moving between states in March. generally a lot of a thing.

generally we're not in an amazing spot? and whether you wanna just put in money generally, or specifically point out a thing on the wishlist you want us to get with that money, we'd appreciate it.

please put on your own oxygen mask first - don't put yourself in a shitty spot because of ours.
