start searching the platform for things you're interested in and follow people with interesting related posts. after a while you've got an actual personal feed

this topic is too exhausting for me to get into so ill just say i hate it here lmao

Is it just me or is it lemmy shit?

Since Day One (spez’ fuckup) I have been trying to use and like lemmy but it just doesn’t work right at all. Like as in never did. Communities disappear randomly, posts don’t load, submissions have no comments, you name it. At this point I am considering going back to reddit just like everyone else I know that used to care...

ive been off facebook for quite a while now but when i was still on it, id unfollowed just about any real-life bullshit and was exclusively engaging in private groups featured around special interests. i ended up doing the same with reddit & a private sub before leaving, i enjoy recognizing usernames.

all this to say: agreed

I didn't get my audhd dx until i was 28 but i feel like i always knew, and i think my life might've been sightly less miserable in general if id just allowed myself to accept a self-diagnosis. the attitude of "you just want to be special" seriously fucked me up lmfao.

the more i learn to code the less opposition i feel to being called a furry even tho i wouldn't call myself one at this time lmfao

im already trans and autistic so it's really not much of a leap

I thought I was just lazy most of my life because I could never wrap my head around how people just do things without getting overwhelmed by 500 things in their head about it first lmfao. Showering is a good example, I'm sure most people find them relaxing and/or do them on autopilot but to me it feels like an elaborate process

ive had this discussion with a few different people actually, and at least from where im standing, it does seem like sms is making a comeback. i have to admit i prefer it when it comes to messaging people i know irl

miles,

ideally id be using signal but hardly anyone is willing to use it because most people don't care. between sms & something owned by meta, for example, im not entirely sure which is less bad

my baby from way back, the artifacting on this image alone is enough to hint my age. art was by icevalaxy on deviantart but she seems to have wiped her account 🫠

i'm sure there are multiple ways but all i really know of is @newcommunities

Can we shut up with the "EEE" shit already?

Meta exist to make a profit, however they’re never going to be able to advertise to most people in the fediverse, who also happen to be some of the most knowledgeable people in some fields. If they accept that they’re never going to be able to advertise to those people, they go for the next best thing: monetising their...

Have you ever been accused of just having social anxiety?

A few months ago I was working on a project with someone. He had the habit of calling me all the time to talk about it, but I keep my phone permanently on DND and I would often miss his calls. It would take me a while, sometimes a couple of days, to get back to him. I preferred to deal with him through text or email, because I...

honestly i had myself convinced my behaviour was "just social anxiety" for a looong time, so yeah

I also don't know Star Trek lore but it is basically the answer used in The Orville ("matter synthesis"), which I do know is a love letter to Star Trek in general

as someone who is queer i actually think the comparison is pretty apt, sounds like she doesn't understand your experiences. i'm sorry you had to go through this

Good portable stim/fidget toys for adults?

I just finished a long and insanely stressful sensory overload appointment to deal with some government paperwork stuff, and I realized partway in that I could REALLY use something unobtrusive to stim with. Anybody have good recommendations for something small enough to slip into my purse and that wouldn't look far too awkward...

miles,

i have a soft leather keychain that i clip to whatever bag i'm using, it's not overly fidgety but it is a pleasant sensation

it'll always be ocarina of time because that game really kickstarted my intense love for gaming in general
