Happy holidays, folks. Been a while since I’ve posted, I know. Less than a year this time, at least!

Since you last saw me, there have been… changes — and I’m not just talking about the new website (powered by Hugo and the Academic framework). Since I last posted, I have (in no particular order):

  • Discovered I do not suffer from the potentially-fatal cardiovascular form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, as I and my physician previously thought.
  • Publicly came out as transgendered (transfemale) to my friends and family, a fact which I’ve kept secret for over a decade.
  • Simultaneously been laid off and lost my health insurance, and subsequently gone cold turkey (again) on my medication for bipolar disorder.
  • Totalled my car, going even deeper into debt, and unable to replace it due to general incompetence and the chicanery of the modern insurance and finance industries.
  • Generally withdrawn from society at large in response to overwhelming stress and mental illness.

So of course, this seems like the perfect time to try and start posting again!
