Take a Penny, Leave a Penny!

Close to three years ago, karnythia hosted an LJ post where she asked people to leave a comment if they had something they wanted or needed, or if they had something they were willing to give or offer.

I got two things: yarn and friends.

This is how I met rosefox, who has since become one of the people in my life whom I value most.

So I've been thinking a lot lately about that and what a big impact it had on my life over the past three years. And it made me want to do it for other people.

Quoting karnythia's post from all those years ago:

What do you want?
What do you need?
What do you have?

Feel free to answer any or all of them. They do not need to be realistic things (I put world peace on mine last time) If you don't have a LiveJournal, or would prefer to answer anonymously, give us a way to contact you.



Feel free to share this on LJ, DW, and other social media if you like.

Autoimmune is pretty new to me as well. It seems like every time you adapt, it finds something new to mess up. I'll be around LJ if you ever want to vent/compare notes.

*snort* I understand this feeling. Fortunately, I'm in the right business for it & have figured out a lot of the self care. Western medicine sucks at dealing with AI issues. (*blink* just realized that autoimmune and artificial intelligence are abbreviate the same.) most of them they try, and the methods can help but are often really rough. Mine is one of those they don't even look for because its common but they don't treat it any differently because the immunosuppressants are worse than not in my case. I suppose I'm lucky... But I'm also pretty pissed at being left to flail about on my own for years, probably decades, until I figured it out and insisted on the right test and got diagnosed.

I may be a wee bit bitter. Fucking institutionalized malpractice.

I finally got a good endocrinologist who specializes in autoimmune disorders and he's done a really good job of treating me and anticipating what it'll do next. But because this started with Hashimoto's, I've spent over 10 years being told I was crazy, looking for excuses for weight gain, or diagnosed fat with a prescription of weight loss. I certainly understand bitterness at the medical field.
