“I am bent, but not broken. I am scarred, but not disfigured. I am sad, but not hopeless. I am tired, but not powerless. I am angry, but not bitter. I am depressed, but not giving up.”

A veces puede parecer difícil como pedir ayuda, pero en necesario reconocer cuando no podemos solos y recibir la ayuda adecuada. -

En este mes de concienciación sobre el suicidio nos detuvimos hacer este pequeño ejemplo, a los mensajes que podemos enviar a nuestros amigos y contactos más cercanos. 
Siempre tener contactos de emergencia 🚨. #informaresapoyar

I already thought that my iphone was the best thing ever. My eyes. Quite literally. And now, it is even better! The new IOS 13 update allows you to use dark mode on the iphone. It is so much better for my eyes! Our guinea pig Timmy wanted to see what all the fuss was all about too 😂🐹 Description: I’m holing my iphone in my hand. Next to it is my brown guinea pig on the floor, she was walking on a blanket on the floor and sniffs the iphone. The iphone is all dark with white letters, it says ‘darknmode is fantastic 😎

January through April may be "tax season", but September to October is "tax planning season". To that end, I suggest you call us and set up a time for a tax planning session. The BEST way to be prepared is to have a conversation now about a proactive strategy to minimize your tax burden. Now is the time!

When I read @thedisabledhippie 's post earlier about privilege, it put me in both a state of awe and of mourning.  I havent thought of how privileged I am since when I thought I was a white cis girl from a good class who was healthy, and now here I am, a gay nonbinary person with a disability who is jewish.  I have had a lot change recently, but somehow this hits quite hard.  The thought of losing things that I can do is horrible and I have unashamedly cried over this, and the thought that my life will be far harder than people who are cis and healthy is also quite sad, but the thought that I now have more things that fall into the less privileged section than the privileged one is weirdly disheartening.  It makes me think about how much harder life will be and is for me than for a healthy person or a cis person which I really dont think about all that much, but it also puts me in awe of how much I am really thriving right now, I have some good doctors(but not many) I am on the way to getting mobility aids that I need, I am on antidepressants, I am in a good school, I have good friends, and I am still white and still in a good class which makes me safer from police and safer from my own health because in general, we arent in crushing debt from my medical bills like some people I know.  I am happy with my life, even if it isnt perfect, it is still beautiful.

Had a few days away over the weekend for a much needed change of scenery and mental break from the monotony of the last month or so. 》

Had a great time, which can be seen from the spam quantity of posts to my Story 🤣 (now a story Highlight circle on my profile) 》

A 'walking holiday' might not be the usual expectation for a disabled person with mobility problems however I always say that a little bit of green is good for the soul, and shall be reminding myself of that over the next few days during the inevitable extra joint pain, fatigue and sympton flare-up after such an active weekend. 》

I also now get to happily spend time sorting and editing photos! 》

Absolute lifesaver today when I needed a quick dash to the loo whilst out. 
Not often that I use the accessible toilets but today I needed to get to the nearest possible one and the few extra metres to the ladies just weren't possible.
Thank you @asda for recognising that not every disability is visible!

‘When I was pregnant you were referred to as a risk, an anomaly, something that was ‘wrong’, an abnormality, a problem.

I clearly remember how much negative language was used in my pregnancy, yet once you arrived earth side none of it was ever used again’

The fear fuelled way in which screening and testing is administered, and the way a potential diagnosis of t21 is given in Australia, is ALL geared towards aborting not supporting the pregnancy.

If screening was designed for the sake of optimal pregnancy care, emotional and practical support for the parents, connecting to appropriate services and organisations, then the stigma of Trisomy 21 in Australia today might diminish.

I’m still uncertain as to how to tell my child when she’s older that her own country has a national screening program designed to target her diagnosis.

Josee’s life does not reflect the negative language used in my pregnancy. In fact her life is the opposite of all that I was told it would be.

If you find you’re pregnant and being pressured to screen, or the language used by medical professionals is negative and outdated I would love for you to let me know.

"This #International #Day recognizes the importance of sign languages for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and fulfilling its core promise of leaving no one behind.  It also offers an opportunity to support and protect the linguistic identity and cultural diversity of all sign language users." — #UN #Secretary-General António Guterres

According to the World Federation of the #Deaf, there are approximately 72 million deaf people worldwide. More than 80% of them live in developing countries. Collectively, they use more than 300 different #sign #languages.

#Signlanguages are fully fledged natural languages, structurally distinct from the spoken languages. There is also an international sign language, which is used by deaf people in international meetings and informally when travelling and socializing. 
It is considered a pidgin form of sign language that is not as complex as natural sign languages and has a limited lexicon.

This evening I told Josh I wanted vodka, cus ya know, Polish roots and all that. But seeing as I don’t drink alcohol I settled for non alcoholic fizzy wine from @marksandspencer instead. .
.
It’s been a bit of an odd day. I got discharged from physiotherapy. I’ve done everything they’ve asked of me and more. I’m managing myself well, keeping my mental health in check, trying to go out as much as I can, doing my exercises, etc etc. And basically they can’t do anything more for me without a diagnosis, so unless something goes really wrong, I’m free! .
.
So good thing, yes, but also feel like I’m a bit stuck again. My pain isn’t any better, although I am managing it better. I’m not any closer to a diagnosis at the moment, but it feels like I’ll be ok until I see a rheumatologist. So mixed bag of emotions. .
.
Had to cancel seeing a friend today who had offered to help me with some support and experience she had with chronic illness. I slept so badly last night, I woke up in so much pain this morning, and had lights in my eyes for hours. So again, disappointing. But also meant I got to spend some time with my lovely husband, so a good thing, and hopefully I’ll get to see my friend tomorrow. The advice isn’t lost...just delayed. .
.
So yeah an odd day, but a good day. But I’m now settled on the sofa, heat pad on full,  pretending I’ve had actual wine. Life feels ok right now. Stuff to work out, but ok. Big love to everyone 💛💛💛 .

Tadaaa!🎉 Darf ich vorstellen? Mein neuer Rollstuhl.♿️ Und hinter mir: Mein Fels in der Brandung.❤️ Derjenige, der jede Familienfeier erträglicher macht. Der Mann, den die Leute oft ganz erstaunt anschauen, wenn sie sehen, dass seine Frau (ich) im Rollstuhl sitzt. Der Mann, der mich immer wieder aufbaut, wenn es mir schlecht geht. Der Mann, der mir Sicherheit und Geborgenheit gibt und mich immer wieder daran erinnert, wie egal die Meinung anderer Leute doch eigentlich ist. Und der Mann, der mir gerade erstmal einen großen Teller Nudeln zum Sofa gebracht hat, weil ich dazu selbst zu k.o. war. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Der Tag ist geschafft und ich bin erleichtert. Vor allem aber, bin ich dankbar und  ich bin begeistert von meinem neuen Rollstuhl. Ich habe heute dank der höhenverstellbaren Armlehnen und des deutlich besseren Sitz-Komforts wirklich gut durchhalten können und freue mich schon auf die nächsten Ausflüge damit.✊🏻 #CoupleGoals #ImAMermaid #NeuerRollstuhl

Yesterday, I turned 30! I put on this dress that I bought for the occasion and partied until 2 a.m. with some of my favorite people in the world. It was a perfect birthday.
🎉
My 20s were a decade of discovering who I am and how I fit into the world. I'm going into this next decade without the weight of other people's expectations on my shoulders. I'm taking up space and unapologetically rolling up to my seat at the table. I can't wait to see what happens. ✌️

To live a life fulfilling and beautifully individual is precious.
•••
Learning what fuels a heart takes time. My soul aches for the memories I never made, and through my longing, I learned.
•••
The adventures I once protected my delicate body from, I'm learning to embrace. Adventure and spontaneity are etched deeply in my being, so though it costs my body, my soul needs to chase new memories. #mybodyhurts #butmyheartisfull

وقتی به گذشتم فکر میکنم میبینم از لابلای کلی سختی و آسونی، اتفاقات خوب و بد، خنده ها و گریه ها یه الهــــام اومده بیرون که نه تنها خودش ، بلکه خیلیا به وجودش افتخار میکنن
من پذیرفتم که یک معلولم، دیگران هم پذیرفتن...
و حالا من با تمام وجود میگم
⁦💪«معلولیت محبوبیت است» 💪
