Random facebook memory:
A two panel comic. In the first panel, a cat is asleep in a sunbeam, dreaming. We see its dream: a police captain is shaking its paw, saying "You're a hell of a detective, cat!"
In the second panel, a police detective is asleep at his desk, dreaming. We see his dream: he's hanging out with a group of 'cool' cats, and one of them says "You're a hell of a cat, detective!"

Hey so let me share something positive, it's been a while.
I'm still processing shit but now that I recognize the underlying causes of my weird failure modes it's such a relief I can't even tell you.
I walked around for 30 years deeply afraid of myself, of my own emotions, of looking too deeply into my own soul.
I know now it's because I am autistic, and I've spent my whole life trying to be 'normal'.
_I no longer have that constant stomach pain_, I am learning to accept me.

But consider this:
things are already bad!
Look at your timeline.
Now, over to 🐘.
Back to yours.
And back to 🐘.
Tired of being stuck in the darkest timeline?
You don't have to be!
Try making Mastodon your home for a while and see how you like it.
hey y'all I'm looking for a programming gig in NYC that involves doing good things and working with amazing people. I can do all kinds of code. Who do you know who is looking?
MH - "Exposure Anxiety"? Show more
digging more. Anyone ever heard of Exposure Anxiety? Like PDA (pathological demand avoidance) it's a behavior profile of some people on the autism spectrum.
The PDA thing resonates with me strongly, but I've seen people now saying that PDA and EA may be different lenses into the same thing. Seems plausible.
me: come on. we gotta do work. come on.

me: god DAMN it
Altered Carbon is good, modulo casual sexism and mispronunciation of my name.
But hey, it’s my name, in the script of a piece of media I’m watching. This is actually a first for me.
We are now on v2.2.0 btw!
Hey weirdos, sorry about the downtime - we are back!
