medication, fear 

@Mayana you know, I never thought about not being able to afford it. That makes it even more terrifying.

medication, fear 

It appears as though today's medical toot day. So because of circumstances and health things I don't want to go into too deep right now I've been presented with the possibility of being reliant on medication for the rest of my life. And that scares me. Like I seem to have a deep fear of needing medication to survive especially at a young age. So mad respect to those of you for whom this is already reality. How do you do it? Like it legit terrifies me

Also wtf has it really been that long already? That's insane. Still remember it like it happened yesterday

And it's been like this for a good 2 ish years so my hopes of this discomfort ever going away are pretty slim. It's funny how we adapt though. It's gone from a thing I just can't stop thinking about to a thing that happens and I just kinda notice it sometimes when my mind isn't busy with other things

What's worse than a foot falling asleep?

A foot with a lot of nerve damage falling asleep. Because now my body's all like "aaaaa help what is this how do I deal with it omg no too much"

@arqeria @Mayana @silmathoron @kensanata @fireborn I do not think I will remove it. But I'll definitely set it to 1k once I migrate over to the hometown fork.

@fireborn @kensanata @Mayana @arqeria might be a short downtime. Unless I break things majorly. Then it'll be a longer downtime.

@silmathoron @kensanata @Mayana @fireborn @arqeria nope, and I remember there being a heated discussion about the 500 character limit in the Mastodon Github issues. Don't think it's happening. Pleroma has configurable limits, though.

@kensanata @Mayana @fireborn @arqeria yup there appears to be a status length validator in the ruby backend and a check in the compose component in react. I think that's it.

@Mayana @fireborn @arqeria sure. I could try to raise it to 1k? Or do you think that's too much

You could seriously write books about the million unexpected ways PHP can fail you. About the days of productivity lost because it does something so mind twistingly dumb that you'd never think to check. Yes I have strong feelings for PHP. No, they're not all too positive. :(

Trying to use multiple Python versions because there's this huge diff between 3.7 and 3.8 apparently and honestly just no. Venv's broken, pyenv won't work either... Whyyyy

There's some Irony to how big corporations are absolutely terrible at handling accessibility. Not all of them and not all the time but... Twitch firing their accessibility lead during GAConf and Google killing community captions during deaf awareness week? Can't make this shit up
