My name is Fiona and I’ve been hopping around the internets making friends and creating sparkly chaos for many years. I live in Australia with my partner and our dog. I am probably autistic, and I’m working hard to learn to manage my emotions and my actions so that I can enjoy life and maybe one day be a more productive member of society or at least use my brains and passions to help others.

I have a background as a speech pathologist but don’t work in it any more, but I am still very interested in communication and inclusive education. Apparently I finished my masters in Inclusive Education 12 years ago! My last job was as a disability support worker. I have thankfully qualified for the disability support pension. I’m using my time and background to advocate for welfare and disability rights independently, and with the Australian Unemployed Workers Union and Antipoverty Centre to advocate and lobby for livable welfare payments – above the poverty line and without harmful “mutual” obligations.

I’m also trying to stay sober, because alcohol has not led me on a good path and am taking Antabuse and going to a weekly support group for that.

You can usually find me over on Twitter, hopefully not causing too many arguments. I’m also starting to stream more on Twitch – mostly playing Sims while talking crap, so please follow me there too!

I’d love if you could tip me some cash here for spending moneys, or maybe buy me a treat from my Amazon Wishlist? But I know times are tough all around, so virtual hugs are more than welcome!
