I went to find a Ted Talk about Lyme Disease, in some hope that there is an academic culture out there willing to take on the stigma, common misdiagnoses, widespread medical avoidance, and beautifully heartbreaking stories of Lyme sufferers who have bravely fought this evasive illness. No such luck in the Ted homepage search results. Thank god for people like Emily Reach White who are fighting to change the narratives surrounding “invisible illnesses” and whose Tedx talk discusses her father’s fight with Chronic late-stage Lyme and her own battle with telling his story. Please watch.

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:


Those were my EXACT thoughts.

Hi friends, I find myself in a bit of a financial bind. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Dorian. I’m 24ish, live in Ontario, and am currently on disability support. It does not give me a lot of money! And this month I have had to take a couple of unanticipated trips to visit family members, trips for which I’ve had to borrow money. 

Today I got my monthly deposit for the month of september. After paying my rent and bills, repaying loans, and buying a bus ticket home from Toronto (where I am currently staying with a friend), I will have about a hundred dollars in the bank. I need that to last until September 30th, which is basically impossible.

I know I’m not the only poor/broke queer on this site. I know there are other people who need money more than me. But if you can spare anything I’d appreciate it. My paypal is dorianisms at gmail dot com. I can’t give anything material to people who donate, but I appreciate each and every one of you (including people who’ve helped me out in the past but can’t now, or people who reblog these posts) more than I can possibly say

Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.
