💤🌜my under-eye dark circles are the one giveaway of an endless fight to stay awake & failure to fall asleep🌛 insomnia is just one of the "perks" of life with m.e💤

I'm so proud of my [not not] twin @_jazzacuna_, who's been alive for a quarter of a century. 👑 h a p p y 25th b i r t h d a y 👑

growing up as pastors kids, being homeschooled, moving to and fro, it fused an inseparable bond between my sister and i, a bond that only gets stronger as we get older. jazz is not only the one sister god gifted me with, but my mentor, carer, best friend; she's my other half.
may you light up the world as you light up my life 👑🔥

Living bedbound/housebound plus my consistent online absence, sparked the creation of this digital collage + poem: 🌫 haunted 🌫

i didn't think i believed in ghosts till i became one
being not quite in or out of the world i live in shadow
apologising for my absence even when present
it's a habit to be so out of touch with the outside
all look through me not at me
i exist in delay, delay
disappearing in a perpetual loop of fragmented being

a fading echo of who i once was
i didn't think i believed in ghosts till i became one

New vid: 'what endometriosis means to me'💅 👎(link in description)

as endometriosis awareness month comes to a close, journey back with me to 2015, where i open up, for the very first time, on the impact of endo. from everyday ableism to period shaming & much much more, watch me rant about how much endo sucks & what i've learnt.

No 👏 more 👏 craptions 👏

sparked by the lack of good captions available on youtube, 'no more craptions' is a movement launched by @rikkipoynter as a call to action for accessibility
if you believe disabled folk matter, closed captions (aka subtitles) matter

disabled folx are sick of able bodied tears of pity,
unless it results in action for change, pity is worthless
take action, caption your content, call in others to do the same & support disabled creators like rikki i.e. buy her 'no more craptions' tees (like mine seen above) 💐 [image description: shows a self-portrait collage of victoria in her wheelchair. she's enveloped by a big blush pink flower, the words 'be accessible, be - ee accessible' written above her in multicolour vcr font. she's sporting a flower shaped white sunnies, a blush pink 'no craptions' oversized shirt over a short white skirt, multicolour long socks in white shoes & snow white purse sits on her lap] #nomorecraptions #beaccessible #accessibility #captionsmatter #disabledandcute #crip #crippunk
