That's fucking horrible. I'm sorry.

It wasn't anywhere near as bad as I had prepared for. He doesn't like my chosen name and won't use it. He thinks I'm having a nervous breakdown. I look ridiculous.

Weak. Very weak.

Shit has started to come together this week.

I am going to be heavily involved in a community project soon which should measurably improve the lives of the people around me.

I have secured a 24 month extension to my lease with a guarantee that any rent increase will only be in line with RPI and not above it, rather than the 12 months 'we can do whatever the fuck we want' attempt they put in front of us first. That means 3 full years in the same location, the most I've had since I was chucked out of my parent's place.

Even managed to get my drugs with minimal bullshit and everything on the blood tests is All Good for the first time.

Work stress continues and involving the NHS with my healthcare is already starting to cause me frustration, but overall this has been a really positive week. After three months of relentless negativity this feels fucking good.

Stage 4 cancer.

There seems to be some confusion regarding the exact date.

August was when the memorial went up, but the gofundme for her illness was still up in October.

Her relationship with Liam and their eventual marriage seemed happy enough, so she at least had that.

Hello, spags.
It feels to me like we're accelerating into the technological singularity, and I was just stopping by to see what the general mood was here.
Are the panties fully knotted, and buttholes puckered?

Nah, it was normal black-bag police kidnapping bullshit. They released the kids later. It's not Nacht und Nebel tier, though it sure is headed that way.

This was a warning shot off the bow, essentially. Not even raising the stakes, just making the existing ones clear. "Know your place -- we can ruin you anytime." Showing that actually, consequences for using their fucked up hate-laws are not something that matters to them.

As for "what happens now"? Start pulling vulnerable people out of those fucking shitholes and sending them to safer places. Because they're GOING to go full Nazi. They haven't been hiding it for a long time now. So save the people who really need saving.

For everyone else, it's time to read about resistance movements in WW2 Italy, German-occupied nations, etc. Maybe throw in some Zapatista, Spanish Civil War, modern Palestinian resistance reading. Get real comfortable, extremely familiar with your history. Start figuring out how the real successful shit might look in a post-internet surveillance-world. You know, what-ifs.
"I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me."

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.
