I'm sorry to hear that. Coincidentally, I've had a lot of trouble this past week with eating and nausea.
Hope it gets better for you.
what are you having a hard time with? maybe we can help come up with a solution together?
I wish but it's ARFID and no one around me understand just make more stress make even harder
Just finished an over 8000 kilometer journey to a very large city only somewhat by choice. Will be here a few weeks helping a family member move in then I get to make the return trip alone.
What's your mode of transportation?? The way you write it sounds like you're going hobbit style.
On the back of Giant Eagles
Multiple modes. Ultimately several hundred km on foot, a few thousand via the road, and a relatively short flight to cross a large body of water.
I feel like people were interrupting me all week. Sometimes I think there's phases where my voice just doesn't register for ppl or the fact that I'm halfway thru a sentence just doesn't matter... Bleh
Enjoyed a lot of the convos on here this week though
3 year into Covid, and I feel like we've yet to appreciate th massive excess death rate globally and how that's going to effect things for a long time.
The grinding churn of capitalist progress doesn't allow us to take that time to mourn or heal or even acknowledge in any substantial way.
I went to a psychologist today, for the first time in my life. But despite telling them about an episode of suicidal thoughts that I projected online some years back, my several friends who have died to suicide, and my general disgust for society and work, all they seemed to be worried about was my drug and alcohol use. And they told me that the process of figuring out if I am on the autism spectrum or not involves me being institutionalized for longer than a week, without access to any drugs.
So I refused those terms and will probably never find out, "officially", if I'm too weird and fucked up for this life. But that's fine. I prefer to stay outside of the state's attention either way.
Cheers and good weekend to all. Next week I got work on a monday, so it's gonna be a blue one.
What the fuck, what a shitty therapist.
Why would an autism diagnosis require institutionalization for longer than a week?
we don't use ableist language here.
please edit your comment to remove it.
Just want to thank you for reminding people this because it's so common people say those words as insult even if someone like me is right in front of them, slow and not always understanding or being able to express and not able to talk. Why is my brain equal to insult, of things that annoy or seem ridiculous, it should not be
Thanks so much. It's something I take very seriously specifically because I want folks like you to know that you're valid and welcome in anarchist spaces.

Seems like there's no classic sitcom that doesn't have at least 1 transphobic episode. Even Wings, which had that groundbreaking anti-homophobia episode later had an obscenely transphobic one. Let's see if Newsradio does better.
I just got finished with my second week at work.
I really enjoy my job, which feels weird to say, especially since it feels like I'm functionally beating my head against a wall. But the clients feel seen and heard and that matters to me, and to them. Even if I can't ultimately do anything to stop the state at least someone saw them.
But fuck if this isn't heavy work.
My cousins ex wife who I'm still very close with has been slowly dissolving. My cousin and her moved far away from home to be in a poly relationship. The situation was toxic from the start, but it all got worse when whe got pregnant with the other guys kid. My cousin was so mad at her. The four ended up just switching partners and hating the other couple. Then her baby daddy broke up with her and she moved back home (where i live) once the baby was born. She has developed a pretty terrible drinking problem through all of this. Then she got raped in December. I just found out today that last week a male friend of 10+ years who has also been spiraling into alcoholism came to her place shit faced and beat the shit out of her when she said something he didn't like. She is dissolving as a human being, despondent. Sometimes our conversations just devolve into thought loops going around and around and I can't break the cycle. I worry that her drinking will get her kid taken away.
Her family sucks, and she doesn't have anybody except for me and my parents, but we don't know what to do. I almost can't believe the world can be so cruel to someone. I'm in recovery and I've tried so many times to get her to come to meetings with me, but she always flakes out last minute. I got her to agree to go to a progressive queer recovery group tomorrow, and I've lined up a backup babysitter so she has no reason to back out, but I just don't know if it's enough. I don't know how I can help her.

finished my batocera set up. my old haswell nuc. astro city mini arcade stick. no consoles, just arcade (final burn neo plus other emulators for naomi, triforce and atomiswave), video thumbnails, and I kept the list to 300 games so I can actually scroll through them without it taking an age. also had to use mame for two games finalburn didn't support (bubble bobble: lost cave and mr driller).
it's not a MiSTer but it'll do
What about those Capcom CPS ? A lot of cool beat'em ups.. I am wanting to start a similar project, but not sure if I want to mix consoles and arcades, not sure how much I want to spend either (lol if I only had $ to spend on this)

i think all the capcom games are covered in finalburn neo.
Street Fighter III: Third Strike
SegaSonic the Hedgehog
Cadillacs & Dinosaurs
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
In the Hunt
Knights of Valour
Armed Police Batrider
Elevator Action Returns
Wild West C.O.W-Boys of Moo Mesa
The Cliffhanger: Edward Randy
Mortal Kombat II
Ghosts’ n Goblins
Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow over Mystara
Ha, didn't knew final burn was multi platform, thought was SNK oriented lol
And I need to study more before starting my own, not sure about processor or hardware, your joystick choice looks nice tho

nah i dont like snk.
batocera is really simple. much simpler than my old retropie set up.
you just flash it to a usb stick and then plug the usb stick into your device (you might have to go into the bios to change the boot order so usb is 1). that's it. you can even get premade images with roms included if you don't want to set up your own:
then when you unplug the usb stick, the device returns back to its normal state
scrape your game list inside batocera to automatically download videos and art (the arcade scrapers are free)
better to add the roms yourself. you can get them on archive.org ("FinalBurn Neo (v.22.214.171.124)") and cut it down to just the best of the best so you're not scrolling through 10,000 games. also that way you'll have the latest version of batocera os. and remember to download the bios files and put them in the bios folder.
Food and eating is really hard. I wish i had proper help
