The doctor I’m going to be contacting today is Jonathan Wells who seems pretty good at least on paper but I haven’t heard any specific recommendations aside from seeing him listed in My Trans Health. He checks all the right boxes for me though (apparently 10% of his patients are trans, and he focuses on chronic issues, although I think that might just be HIV/AIDS and not fibro/EDS). https://neighborcare.org/staff/jonathan-wells-md/
While we’re on it, Dr. Fields at Kaiser Capitol Hill is also amazing, but he’s also way too far away, and Kaiser in general is pretty hit-or-miss (especially with chronic disorder shit). And of course Kaiser has strict insurance requirements (namely, you have to be a member of their HMO).
I already know about Rongitsch; I used to see her and she was really good but I had to switch because of insurance reasons and unfortunately she always has an ENORMOUS waiting list, plus downtown Seattle is further away than I want to go anymore.
Basically, I’m in White Center and my mobility/transportation access is limited, don’t make me drive 45+ minutes on the freeway to get to them
Yesterday I had such a bad experience with my doctor that today I’m going to be seeking a new doctor. There was an accumulation of papercuts that was bad enough but yesterday I had an appointment with her which was absolutely AWFUL.
Anyone in the Seattle area know of any good trans-friendly chronic-disorder-savvy general practitioners, ideally in West Seattle or Burien and without a long-ass waiting list?

Here's a comic about what clothing designers must think women say. I don't believe this is how anybody really feels about trying to buy clothes.

So it’s kind of cool how all of the current series are Internet-service first. Somehow they aren’t as good as Enterprise though. Well, except Lower Decks.
When Enterprise first aired I remember it being one of the first times I’d downloaded a video that was in better than 480p resolution, and it was difficult to play it well. I’m pretty sure it was in DivX;-) format because h.264 didn’t exist in any meaningful way at the time.
It was also probably one of the first things I’d downloaded via the then-new BitTorrent protocol.
It’s ridiculous how long ago the last broadcast Star Trek TV series was.
For that matter, you know how weird it seems that it was a big deal that the ship's computer had copies of 50,000 movies and they were all old crap from the 1960s and earlier, in SD?
Here's your reminder that Enterprise also predated YouTube.
