request for financial help, sorry! 

Um, I could really use some help, if anyone is feeling able or charitable!

So, I'm in a lot of trouble!
I was recently fired. my former employer owes me 9 paychecks and has lied about it in my invoice.

It wasn't properly recorded with the state either, so I'm not eligible for unemployment or food stamps. As far as they're concerned, I never had a job.

At the moment, I'm overdrawn on my bank account and am maxed on credit. tbc i guess

transition goals:
for there to be a documentary about me where the nearby townsfolk say i can't be real, i'm just a ghost story people tell kids

there's a tourist trap selling plushies of what people think i look like

the cutest creature you've ever seen ambles up to you, with big eyes.

"hi, what's your name?" they ask.

you give your name and they smile.
"they call me the volcano!" they giggle. "it's because of all the virgins i've annihilated."

arm update, armpdate 

@heatherhorns Oh gosh. Yeah, I understand concerns about exposing oneself to health care industry but sudden rapid changes in wide swaths of skin strikes me as serious.

I'm hoping this is just the early stages of your cryptid tf but if it isn't something happy, it's better dealt with sooner.

arm update, armpdate 

anyway sorry for all that physical health stuff! i yammered so much!

honestly like
"multicolored spots that grew bigger than my biggest bobby pins and has tendrils" is a lot scarier when it ISN'T itchy and sore

folks were saying i don't have a bullseye marking, but that might be up on the camera cause that's what worried me: i had like rings around a red/orange center

whatever happened, puffing up = body reacting. it's like "you can put a cream on it" territory now i bet

we cancelled our place! i think it might be like a thing worth seeing a doctor about

exacerbating by a thing i have and should see a doctor about but can't address yet? i dunno when to draw the carpal tunnel line and say 'i can't put this off anymore', cause if it got to the point where "i can't hold a pen" is an affliction that lasts longer than a day, i dunno how i'd live with myself, having taken away my like, way to function

i'm acting different enough than an hour that he's thinking it might just be infected or something (thank you terrana for tossing that out there) and says he can be convinced to wait till monday if i feel i can hold out

i'm not sure, but i think i can. the thing i keep being dismissive of is something i'd needed surgery for, for uh >5 years

and at some point 'can't move my hand some mornings' and 'can't sleep' might be worth a visit instead of putting it off

feeling a lot better, but

my partner woke up and was immediately like "you need to go to an urgent care immediately" when he saw me, and i was like "i'm feeling better since i took some naproxen (a painkilling anti-inflammatory)"

but he invoked the time i made him go to the er for something that would later that day see him in the er so, sure, he wins

Fucking fuck I have no insurance or income and the clinic I'd use isn't open til Monday and even then it might be weeks

But this is getting severely concerning, but an urgent care would be unthinkable amounts of money

Holy shit I think it's gotten worse in the time since taking photos almost as dramatically as this whole month till now, no wonder today was when I started getting freaked out

Those first two are from earlier this evening

It's certainly..grown some colors and snaked down my arm wtf

maybe my halloween avatar??

i might have to simplify it

anyway here's my skull, i should probably put it back in my head

Asking here seems absurd but I'm not quite sure what to do about it! But I'm curious if anyone has any idea of what this is or how much I should care?

So I get a lot of rashes, this isn't one like I've ever had. It doesn't hurt or itch. But it's been growing in size and getting darker and darker the last uh...two weeks? And y'know, no money, insurance

When I pull the skin taught, it looks like a hickey?

trying to understand people hating kids 

i was gonna go off a thing but it was kind of set on a premise that i only know anecdotally so i'd like to ask

when it comes to cis people, who do you feel you've heard say they hate kids more, proportionally?

trying to understand people hating kids 

I always get this kind of contrarian impulse to understand and defend people who hate kids because of how little sense it makes, and it's like, that feels like kind of a Decision, in a way? cause like, everyone knows what being a kid is like. but then again maybe not, since memory is flawed and we apply our current minds to our past selves

but i think what it is, is that hating kids is like, performative

i also got fallen london games in a similar manner and it's like
feels weird to mention, you know? like getting any entertainment thing feels like i shouldn't talk about it

i'm wondering if i can justify exceptional friendship if i'm living off the kindness of others, cause i was gonna get a fast food gift which is less necessary now that i have food stamps, but living off the kindness of others is like, making this unnecessary expense feel fucked up
