ME awareness day: what does "fatigue" feel like 

ME/CFS got saddled with a name that sucks. u say "chronic fatigue" and everyone's like "oh big mood" because tbf everyone is tired all the time in the late capitalist hellscape. so what's it feel like being on the receiving end of the "fatigue" in "CFS"?
at a metabolic level, it's something to do with an interaction of the immune system, the nervous system, the mitochondria. it's permanent, constant, there is literally no way to refresh ur energy.

@dalius_berger i'm angry they made phones a thing to begin with :bunhdgrumpy: seems like every kids show these days is like, required to have a "social media bad, moderate ur phone use" lesson

i'm so close to making a video essay on how bad the tell your tale art style is compared to friendship is magic. bc seeing clips of tell your tale is Too Much for me

Good day for a few friendly reminders:

1. Putting topics behind a content warning helps people manage their own stress.

2. Putting uspol in the CW, or #uspol in the text, helps non-US users filter out posts that aren't relevant to them.

3. Setting post visibility to Unlisted or Followers Only can help keep some Home timelines on-topic.

4. Roughly 200,000 of us have been here less than a week, and they're acclimating to a new set of conventions, so let's try to stay constructive.

• Finally, and most importantly, in my mind - Mastodon and the Fediverse as a whole has a racism problem. It's a global platform with many white users - it's gonna happen.

As a result, we've dealt - as a platform - time and time again with white users rolling into the mentions of POC - more specifically, almost always Black users - demanding they CW discussion about the lives and struggles of being oppressed in America. _Do not do this._

masto/fedi advice for artists 

one thing that is different here than commercial places you might be used to is that metrics doesn't matter. interactions do.

boost other people's work (or reply to them) engage in meaningful conversations.

the less you treat this place as a broadcast medium and more as a communication platform, the more you will enjoy the fediverse.

hope this helps

a stop along the road is live!!! a wee little solo journaling game about a character who's chosen to settle down despite all the adventure in the world, offering their hospitality to adventurers coming through. i'm real grateful to this community for finally giving me the kick in the pants i've needed to finish this! please enjoy it—community copies are available if needed and refreshed in exchange for comments and ratings!!! 💖
