who trained me. The liturgists was my lifeline at the time, but it definitely derailed my Christian faith journey...in a good and very much needed way! I started going to a new church without my family to do my de/recontruction safely.

Grew up in a Hispanic Christian Baptist family (with some Jewish orthodox teachings as well, that's a long story though). I soft started my deconstruction around the end of my high school years and went vegan around the same time. My hardcore deconstruction started my sophmore year of college.

The president of #Chile just signed a law that raises the minimum wage from 409 USD to 475 USD, paid by state subsidies.

To my fellow humans with bad anxiety disorders: the mammalian diving reflex is a good tool to remember. By putting a bunch of really cold water on your face your body automatically lowers your heart rate (just now I went from like 110bpm to 70, now I'm at 80 and within normal human ranges despite my adrenal glands opening the floodgates). I am okay and will continue to be okay.
And hey, at lest now I have more time to work on the BSD basics video (or whatever I'm gonna call it)
