Life update from Wegmans cafe
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. I was asked to write a Syracuse Peace Newsletter article by Monday, and on top of that, Show Trans needs to be ready to go out to pre-orderers and reviewers around the same time. Joey is helping me to format and insert some images that I think really make the book. Screen-caps from awful grindr conversations, for instance, which some of my older followers may remember. I’m really excited about this book. Have I mentioned that? I’m excited about the article too, but man, deadlines stress me.
I’m also figuring out book readings and other possible money-making schemes. I have secured one college gig at SUNY Fredonia. So that’s good.
I’m also going through the hassle of figuring out how I’ll get my hormones now that I’m on Medicaid and not my dad’s insurance. And I need to figure out food stamps. Ugh. I hate this kind of shit.
But otherwise, life is pretty good. My partner is in the midst of a (unnecessarily) stressful divorce, and that sometimes drains us both. But such is life. I’ve got a home, I’ve got a good man, and I’ve got two adorable new kitties. I can’t complain. Well, I can, and I still do. But I’m doing well.
I have noticed that my social anxiety is getting pretty wretched again. Oh, and I may have a wheat intolerance. I’ve felt a lot better since I cut it out of my diet. I suggest trying it if you are often nauseated and sluggish after eating and have joint pain. Especially if you’re an Aspie/on the autism spectrum.
