Trading With Me - Updated Oct 31
A few notes about me and how to best trade with me. I will do the best on my part but sometimes I need help.
I am a nurse and work anywhere from 4 hr to 16hrs a day. On average, I work 12 hr shifts but may be asked to stay longer due to an emergency. That is out of my control because it is my duty. Work days I do not trade unless we meet at my workplace at Queen West and Ossington.
I also am physically & mentally disabled along with immunocompromised. I have a neurological disorder where I am in pain most of the time, I forget things (even simple things like remembering what I ate or need to get from the store. Even if I'm looking right at it), and sick almost all the time. Most of the time I'm on the ball but sometimes things slip and I dont even know I forgot them.This disorder is new to me and it impacts my daily life thus trading. ****Understanding and patience is important for me because I feel a lot of guilt and anxiety about forgetting or need to reschedule trades from pain.****
Cold season trading: I trade along ttc lines and will meet halfway on those farthest trips. I need to avoid walking in the cold because the cold impacts my mobility and pain. Thus, I prefer to meet indoors at stations or near the station. If you are late or changed your mind last minute, please let me know so I dont stand out in the cold waiting for you. It's painful and unpleasant.
For both parties, please let's avoid meeting in the cold and meet somewhere inside instead near our meeting point.
Warm season trading: I bike everywhere. Heavy or large items gotta be picked up at Wellesley station or from my apartment because I cant carry them physically or on my bike. If it is raining, I wont be able to trade that day because biking in the rain is dangerous and terribly unpleasant. I bike because I cannot walk long distances.
It would help me and thus you by these points:
1. If we can agree on a date and time to trade quickly, perfect! Let's put it as the title of our chat so I can remember and find the chat later
2. Confirming the trade the night before is important to me because it reminds me and allows me to organize my day of trades better.
3. Meeting half way and choosing a bike accessible location. Biking through neighborhoods is difficult as I'm going by memory and dont know your neighborhood. I also cant bike uphill so I only trade south of bloor.
4. Let me know if your biking, walking, TTCing, or driving so we can choose an appropriate location to meet. If we agree to meet at a station but you're driving, it wouldn't be fair for you to park your car and run into the station especially if it's busy.
Let's agree to communicate and be understanding with one another 😁
