About

This needs overhauled, when I’ve got the time and energy.🙂

Handily snagged from the intro post, for the time being:

Who am I? A woman in her early thirties from Southwest Virginia, living (and feeling rather out of place) in Greater London since 2004. There are a lot of handy labels one could put on aspects of what make me who I am: feminist, “invisible” American Indian, autistic, hillbilly, “visibly” and “invisibly” disabled, anarchist, animal lover, small-”p” pagan, big fat crank, among others. I’ll readily admit that all of these influences do work together in shaping the way I look at the world, but prefer not to be pigeonholed, much less held to any one category. As Amanda pointed out so well recently, that is fairly difficult when you break so many stereotypes, anyway.

I actually hesitated to start writing publically about more political topics–and I do firmly believe that the personal is political–because of the quantity of vitriol I’ve seen flung at some other bloggers out there. While I am interested in different viewpoints, outright trolling and personal attacks will incur my righteous wrath. Anyone that mean-spirited will not heed a warning, but it’s right here. I will not tolerate behavior intended to hurt other people here. Expressions of racist, sexist, classist (which was not even in the default dictionary), ableist, sizeist, speciesist, or of any other twisted school of thought based upon Bogus Hierarchical Crap are not welcome here. You have a right to free expression, but not without responsibility and discernment; if you come into someone else’s place and insult them, the least you should expect is a good punch.

It’s sad that I feel a need to state all this explicitly, just so people with dishonorable intentions cannot claim they were not warned. Respectful behavior is very welcome, though, to round things out a bit.😉

    Dear Urocyon,

    My name is Jane and I run the Bipolar Recovery blog. (which is closed for now)

    I’ve noticed you linking to my blog and I’ve read some of your posts. I was wondering if you would be interested in reading a manuscript I’ve created about my journey of healing and recovery. You can email me using the address I had to submit to post here.🙂

    I hope all is well.

      Yeah, I saw your blog was closed, and should probably track down the links and edit them. It was actually one of the first places I ran across the idea that recovery is possible.🙂

      I’d be very interested in reading the manuscript, thanks. I’ll e-mail you about it.

      Hope all is well there too.

    I am anxious to catch up on reading your posts. I do agree with you there is no need for being rude. I see a good number of topics that interest me here. Take care and hope to have good visits along the way.

    Steve

    Are you available to correspond via email. I would like to connect with you on your endocrine experiences. I’ve had a similar experience.
