good morning universe, i slept past my alarms and it's sunny out and no one will care that i'm late for work, what else is good?

gender/self-affirming (food mention) 

meanwhile, a co-worker today said she didn't realize my septum ring was new because it seemed like such a natural part of my face that she didn't even realize i didn't have one until like nine days ago

i'm rehearsing exchanges in my head and trying to decide if i should train myself out of saying 'thanks' if someone says 'okay' when i ask them to use they/m pronouns for me

on one hand i don't want to act like it's a favor i'm asking for

on the other hand, i am legit grateful if someone just goes 'okay sure' with no further drama

anyway mastodon is where i beta-test my gender and that's great

there's a doc in my city who's so frustrated with the medical insurance industry that he broke loose and opened up a clinic where he doesn't take any insurance and bills a flat $35 per office visit regardless of what it's for

i just realized that this means i can go to a doctor and not feel obliged to disclose my legal name

i can just get medical care, pay in cash, and not worry about it

this is so good

reminder to myself that i am not responsible for managing other people's comfort with any part of my identity

boost this if you remember 'if i can do it with one finger you'll do it with your whole hand'
