Hi everyone

The clocks are changing soon

This means my dash is about to be full of posts saying “To people with dissociation: don’t worry, you didn’t lose track of time! The clocks changed!”

Which is lovely to see, because it means people care

but

you must include a region and a date in these posts or they are useless

the clocks go back on different dates in different countries. in the spring, i saw multiple USA-centric posts reassuring me that the clocks had changed, when that wasn’t the case in my country for another 2 weeks. i spent two days (because the posts kept coming out of people’s queues even after the day when the clocks changed!) extremely confused about what was true and whether i was hallucinating or misinterpreting the posts or the calendars.

so please, do make a post like that, but include your country and today’s date in the post.

an example of an appropriate and helpful post:

hey, to people in the USA with dissociation or memory problems: the clocks went back on [date], so don’t worry, you didn’t lose track of time!

another example:

hello! i’d just like everyone in the UK to know that the clocks went back today ([date]), so don’t worry if you’re confused that the time seems to be different, because it is! please reblog this for your followers with dissociation or memory problems!

this goes for the clock changes in both the spring and autumn. thank you!
