Hello! My name is Jade. I’m a science-y postdoc with a neurological disorder, trying to figure out how to fit my disability into academia.
Some words that describe me: female, queer, immigrant. I like pie! And alpacas.
Some words that describe my symptoms, if you wish to commiserate: migraines, vertigo, fatigue, nausea, vision loss, brain fog issues. Various mental health stuff (including an eating disorder that’s hopefully a thing of the past!) (also brief addiction issues with one of my meds, ditto hope for staying in the past).
My views are my own. I don’t speak for anyone else, particularly not the disabled community.
