I told someone about a particular breathing exercise I found helped with menstrual cramps but I can't find any good instructions on the internet. The only sites I've found are not quite right, are very vague, or are selling a product. This is my step-by-step version.



NB 1: I'm not a doctor!

NB 2: This was originally taught to me as a relaxation technique. I think it is derived from Taoist breathing-oriented internal martial arts, but I've lost contact with the person who taught it to me originally, so I wouldn't be able to tell you any specific names, sorry.

Rare public post; hoping someone browsing the tags or a random passer-by will pick this up.

I'm writing fic (!!) and want to resurrect my unused Archive of Our Own account (I barely use DW or LJ and archiving things on Tumblr is a frankly silly idea)

Thing is, I've noticed over time there have been a lot of complaints and drama about the way AO3 and the OTW operates? I believe there was controversy over a poorly-tested AO3 update that resulted in the resignation of an overworked volunteer; recently it's been problems with the tag wrangling?

What I'm getting at here is that I really (REALLY REALLY) want to support OTW and use a fan-made, fan-focused archive, but if the OTW and the archive is going to evaporate due to ongoing drama I don't know, maybe I should stick to DW? Can anyone browsing by let me know exactly what the ongoing issues with the OTW are and how much of an effect it'll have on the AO3? I honestly have no way to tell if it's a serious issue or just a very vocal minority and frankly even if I weren't writing ridiculous pornography right now, I'm curious.

Cheers and thank you my friends.

As it were, when I have less than ten people on each list and the posting volume's so low....

I am going through a major transition and am in an extremely weird place with interests/fandoms/the Internet/the universe, and it's time to clear my slate. It is by no means anything you did. Peace out.

Something FUNKY has happened to the Twitter website, exploits being used to spam, pop-up websites, RT other users, automatically retweet the exploit so other people get hit by it (I wonder if the person who caught me out with this was that guy who kept writing auto-friend scripts for Livejournal)...

Anyway, using clients such as Tweetdeck is still fine, but avoid visiting the website itself for a while.

At least this (plus me stubbing the hell out of my toe on a stray bit of furniture owowowowo) is good incentive for me to get off my computer and sort my shit.
