Patreon is a convenient way for you to help support my work, my voice, and my continued existence on this planet. As a disabled person who is only able to work part-time, the income from Patreon means survival - food, rent, and medical care.
My life evolves all the time, and what I create and publish on this platform will be in perpetual flux depending on my health, but I can promise the following will be a core part of your experience:
Patronage at any level primarily means I get to continue writing the informational/educational threads that brought you to this page. But it also means you get access to very occasional blog posts about my day-to-day illness/disability life that I am more comfortable sharing where they can't be re-tweeted to the entire universe. There will be cat photos. There will be occasional Q&A sessions more intimate, detailed, & conversational than my Twitter threads. I don't make promises about how often blog posts or updates will go up. It is simply unworkable with my health life. But I DO promise that if I am able to write something that's on my heart, my patrons will always be the first to hear it.
If you have a little more to commit, I can send you postcards and letters* or care packages** thoughtfully assembled specifically for your personality. This is my FAVORITE level, because I get to know you away from my computer screen. I have a P.O box, so you can even write me back!
*Letters mail after the first month's payment clears, and continue every month after that.
**Packages mail after the 2nd month's payment clears, and continues every other month from then.
