Caption from me, Kimberly: I have polycystic ovary syndrome and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. On high pain days, I take the elevator. I have to give myself a little talk about how that’s okay. I also give myself little talks about how it’s okay to work on my PhD slowly and to be a slow mom. I’m constantly reassuring myself that my illness is real and it’s okay to make accommodations for myself because of it.
This is the website of Kimberly Hirsh. The subtitle of this site comes from the description of woodland goth on the Aesthetics wiki.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
