Saving for later: ED and body image therapy providers

https://www.threebirdscounseling.com/single-post/2018/03/18/Diversity-Is-A-Good-Thing-80-Eating-Disorder-Body-Image-Providers-Activists

Clients' bodies come in ALL shapes and sizes (and colors and gender identities and body abilities and faith beliefs and country of origin and....).

So do providers' bodies.

Diversity (in all forms) is a good thing. The purpose of this list is to
•highlight and center eating disorder and body image providers and activists who have experienced being marginalized because of an aspect of their identity,
•showcase the rich diversity of providers and activists we have in the field of body liberation,
•serve as a resource for folks to access, both for potential clients and for individuals of marginalized identities to be inspired to enter the field.

Please note this list is a working draft and we hope this list will continue to grow. If you would like to be added, please send your info to maria@threebirdscounseling.com.

No longer on OKCupid

Deleted my OKCupid account because they are trying to get people to use their "real names," whatever those are. Apparently they aren't going to police the names the way FB does, but although I have reluctantly chosen to make an exception for FB, I'm done with social media sites that have policies requiring "real names".

Pulling back

Confused about the new LJ TOS. I had to agree to it, but it says it does not apply to people with paid/permanent accounts, and I don't understand how that works.

There are a few people posting under f-lock on LJ whom I still want to follow, so I'm not planning to delete my account yet. But I don't think I'm going to be mirroring my DW posts here any more. I might post links to them if anyone is still following my increasingly neglected LJ account and would find that useful. (If so please comment.)

My DW account is also firecat.

TV series recs?

If you have watched any of the following series, I would love your opinion.
Well written?
Fun?
Intelligent?
Cast/creator diversity?
Sexism/racism/other $fail?

The Colony
Humans
Into the Badlands
iZombie
Killjoys
Lucifer
Spartacus

Do you recommend any other TV series (prefer crime/mystery/sf) that are available on DVD and are fun, diverse, and not too $faily?

Some links about brain fog, via [personal profile] umadoshi

"Life Hacks for Brain Fog: Chronic Illness, Focus and The Professional Artist" and "Brain Fog Life Hacks: Out of Sight is Out of Mind" by Colleen Doran: These basically say (1) Keep your workspace organized and tidy, because disorganization adds stress; and (2) Make sure you can see anything that you need to remember about, because otherwise you'll forget about it. Of course, those are mutually contradictory... But anyway, I did like this clarification about brain fog:
It’s not that we can’t remember things, it’s that we have brain hiccups so we have to reinforce our memory, back it up like an engineer, and add sensation to the experience to make sure information sticks....Brain fog isn’t dementia, it’s misfire. Your deep memories are still there, but your working memory is shot....Organizing your studio so that you can have constant visual and tactile reinforcement for your memories and ideas will take the load off your working memory and give you more than one path in your head for what you need to remember.
And this one: "Brain Fog":
Brain fog isn’t just forgetfulness: it’s living in a bizarre twilight world where you are half in and half out of consciousness. Everything seems grey, and you don’t feel the passage of time. ( I could not remember the month, day or year it was.) You float through life, but it’s not a good feeling. You have an almost complete lack of awareness. You’re there, but you do not process what you’re experiencing. What memories you do manage to internalize seem as if they happened to someone else.

A couple of tasty links

Recycling some Facebook posts...

I shared this first for the amazing art of the Buddha made out of pens and coins, and second because I think the article is very good.
It's too late for me to vow not to burn out. Having burned out in various ways, if I see a way to help that I am capable of, I am fairly often moved to do it.

Wally's resemblance to most of the Doctors is slight, but hey, you can't go wrong with a costumed Welsh Corgi. And seeing him cosplay the 12th Doctor is worth the wait.
