NOTICE: Update your bookmark

As some may have already noticed, we updated the site to be easier to type, RCDOM.org.

But some sites and links are still pointing to our old domain address. I’ll attempt to contact those I can find, but for those users who have it bookmarked I wanted to make sure we tried to update you about this change.

We’ll be sending out a second notice the day before it cancels, to make sure you’re reminded…

Love

Love is not an easy thing to live without. It’s not something I would choose to live without. Nor would I encourage anyone to do so.

Love gives things money and success never can grant you in life. That nagging sense of incompleteness gone. The deep sense of life continuance and blessing over goes.

I am alone and I fear I will always be alone. But that does not mean I do not hope one day someone will endeavour to be beside me. I doubt that I can find someone strong enough to accept me for me. But hope lives on.

I’m Maria; I’m a wife and mother, fashionista and shoe enthusiast.  Not all of my days are bad, but no one knows about the really bad days because I hide them. Often, I feel like my CRPS has stolen my sense of self. I have a great doctor and on my good days I really enjoy life. My family knows what my battle with CRPS is like, but no one else really has a clue, until now.

I have Complex Regional…

My child has had CRPS for a few  years now! It’s in the foot, ankle, and hand but really bad with pain in their ear( permanent headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and fainting)!

They’ve started taking some medicine which really improved the joint symptoms; the pain is still constantly there but it’s easier to deal with. Then they have more medicines for a stomach pain and nausea and has been…

Coming Out Day: Info for Asexuals

redbeardace:

This Sunday, October 11th, is National Coming Out Day.

If you’re asexual and planning on coming out, there are a few posts on Asexuality Archive that you might be interested in.

The first is Coming Out: Experiences. This is a post about what other asexuals went through when they came out. Although your situation will be unique, this post may give you some idea of what to expect and what to prepare for.

The second is Coming Out: Advice. This is a post full of tips and advice from other aces who’ve been there. Not all of it will apply to you, but it’s worth a read to see what others have suggested.

Additionally, when you come out, you might also consider pointing people at the resources on WhatIsAsexuality.com or towards A Parent’s Guide To Asexuality.  Those might help people understand more.

(And remember, you are not obligated in any way to come out to anyone for any reason.  If you do not feel safe and comfortable coming out, you do not have to do it.)

Im quite impressed at the information I find in Tumblr some days.
