#askFedi kennt jemand eine kompetente #Psychiatrie-Praxis im Großraum #Stuttgart, die Erwachsene mit #ADHS behandelt und in den nächsten Monaten noch Patient*innen annimmt?

Boost = awesome!

Quick question what does 🙃 convey to you in a text

Anxiety, mental health 

So while I appreciate that the experience they have and recount is valid, I also think it’s probably quite specific to their generation and found that generational difference incredibly jarring. The podcast is still interesting to listen to, if only for 👂🏻 different perspectives.

Anxiety, mental health 

Meanwhile, I’m over here as a Millennial, *desperately* trying (and consistently failing) to learn the lesson that I should be handling so much *less* than I think I can and have been handling.

And I see this in so many people my age. Our anxiety isn’t caused by us thinking we can’t handle shit. It’s because we handle (have to handle?) so much more than humans can or should handle on a daily basis in the long term. It's a chronic and systemic problem. Not individual.

Anxiety, mental health 

So I listened to the second episode of Jen Kirkman’s podcast “Anxiety Bites” and, maaaaaan, did I struggle with the views expressed on it. Kirkman and her guest both say they’re GenX, and I got the feeling they have an entirely different experience of anxiety than my generation. They’re like, “you have to understand that you’re not special in how your anxiety is” and “you need to learn that you can handle so much more than you think.”

This is one of the most spectacular sunsets I ever saw while working at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.

The Atacama Desert is extremely dry, but clouds do show up sometimes. That day there were several dark clouds releasing very light rain that vaporised before reaching the ground. These wispy veils (called "virga") were lit by the golden sunset light, creating a lovely contrast with the blue sky above.

Well, this is the first time I only lasted ten minutes in the water, because it was too warm. 😕

Moon Knight: Psychologists Rate Season 1's Depiction of Dissociative Identity Disorder - #Marvel made a big deal about Moon Knight getting mental health ⁠— and specifically DID ⁠— right.

Work wants me to come up with a fun job title. My manager is "cat herder", my colleagues are a "software ninjaneer" and "mass bit manipulator". I'm a software developer too and I need to come up with something. I've managed to get to "Professional Stack Tracer". But as a non-binary person I feel like there has to be some 1001001 computer pun that works. Does anyone have any ideas? Queer techies, assemble! (Cute dog pic for attention.)

If all goes well with the blood test I'll probably start T in June. 😊

meta, mastodon, dms 

I'll explain how Mastodon DMs work, and what that means for you. Mastodon doesn't have DMs like Twitter does, just posts which have their privacy settings set to Direct/mentioned people only. DMs aren't encrypted in any way. There isn't any way through the Mastodon UI that an admin can view your DMs, but they can look in the database if they really wanted to. If you send a DM to a user on another instance, that admin could also, potentially, do the same. That touches on...

First endo appointment tomorrow! Finally! And also AAAAAH! Will it go alright? Will I be binary enough? Stay tuned to find out.

I vastly underestimated how much of my time would be spent coming out. It's a part-time job, and I think we should get paid for it.

Alternatively, I'd accept people actually using my name and pronouns as compensation, but that's clearly not happening, is it?

Anxiety must have been for free today because I sure got a lot of it.

I have rough two weeks coming up, lots of health admin appointments, work calls, having to drive somewhere almost every day. I haven't been in cold water in almost two weeks, weekend was not restful, sleep is meh, … so basically the ground is perfectly primed for my health anxiety to go into overdrive. So of course it has. Plus, I'm worrying about the endo finding some reason not to give me T. I just want a damn break at some point!

de, ger, asking for endo recommendations, boosts appreciated 

can anyone recommend me an endo who's
- near frankfurt (or like, as close as possible and closer than berlin, lol)
- does hrt on transfems, including non-binary ones like me (i'm very fem-presenting tho which kinda helps and i might be able to pretend i'm binary)
- respects their patients' wishes in terms of dosage and administration method

i already have an indication letter since >=6 months and i'm already on prescribed hrt since >=5 months, but my endo is in berlin, hard to contact and very far away, and he is technically not an endo but an Allgemeinarzt and i'm never rlly sure if he actually knows what he is doing, so i would like to switch to someone competent (yet not less trans-friendly) who's closer to where i live

#trans i guess

also boosts appreciated

CW mention of weight loss 

I have my 20 year high school reunion coming up this autumn. I always assumed I'd be like, "damn, I wish I'd lost the extra weight." But, surprise, it's now, "damn, I wish I'd started transitioning earlier." 😂 I doubt I'll see some visible changes by Sept ever even if I get on T microdose in the next 4 weeks (which I'm hoping to 🤞🏻).

CW gender dysphoria, breasts 

There's nothing as emotionally confusing to me as the intense second-hand joy I experience for transfemmes being excited about their breasts while simultaneously despairing about these fleshbags that are attached to me against my wishes. Like, I am literally so happy for you. So happy! But also… I want these things off. It's confusing.

Queer Party!

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
