I'm doing a daily zoom check in in the mornings with members of a local queer mutual aid group.
I did the first one today and I think it's gonna be super helpful. Without work u gave trouble setting my own schedule and I end up sleeping the whole day away and my depression gets worse.
Having a video call I have to be there for in the morning means I have to get out of bed. So I do.
Not really a #sundiy but weekdays feel kinda meaningless now
I made some tree swings! One I put up on a public trail. The other is in my backyard
I hope someone uses them

Help who you can, when you can, regardless of whether or not your receive payment in return.
That's how every basic necessity should be governed, regardless of whether it's medical care, housing, food, or, in this age of information, electricity and internet.
Mutual aid isn't charity: it's contributing what you can to the community because you know you rely on the community for what you can't produce yourself.
Mutual Aid groups supplies aren't just for the homeless, they're so that none of us have to stockpile and hoard, because /all/ of us are, together.
And just think of the meals that can be made if we pool our ingredients. I know y'all white people forget to panic buy herbs and spices.
Housebound advice from a long-term housebound person, boosts ok
I'm going to post a long thread on how to cope better if you're stuck indoors at the moment. I've been housebound by disability for a long while now, and sporadically housebound due to depression and agoraphobia before that. These are things that have improved how I deal with that. This is not gonna make houseboundness painless for you but it might help you cope. Disabled comrades are welcome to share their own advice to this thread.
Crafters and fibre artists,
One way to help your community during the pandemic is to make up craft kits to give to folks stuck at home.
Learning a new craft can help people deal with the boredom and stress.
I made up some felting kits with roving, needles and a rice felting pad. Then I dropped them at people's doors.
If you have spare supplies, make up some kits!
