When I started this campaign I felt very alone!
When I got my 1st contact, backing me with his own terrible “dis-ability” reality – (Danny Moore – see my post – “My 1st follower speaks out. I’m not alone! it was a real comfort to me! I felt really bad for how Danny had been treated because of the usual lack of consequences bollocks. But I did feel less alone. And it backed up my determination to keep going!
Recently I made another connection that could really help me and Facing The Music help many “dis-abled” people.
And I know that because this organisation is already doing just that!
I found MyDisabilityMatters in a random online search for any organisations that would get involved with my cause. I guess that’s how many people start their search for help now when facing anything that is going to affect their life in the long-term and perhaps is at their wit’s end as to what to do next.
The website looked really good! Offering help to get in touch with others and publishing really interesting articles the organisation seemed to have a lot going on!
I barrelled off a quick introductory email about Facing The Music to Dale Rearden, the founder of the organisation, and almost immediately received a reply from him. He sounded really helpful and interested – just what I needed to hear with what I am trying to do – but also something that would be essential to anyone in turmoil after an unexpected diagnosis or health situation.
Very soon I started receiving emails from different people within the organisation – not enough to cause me an Inbox overload plus a load of stress – but enough to make me feel that this was an organisation that took people and their individual needs seriously. I have to say that with the usual work-load plus the tumour’s helpful gift of almost constant fatigue I haven’t given them the attention they deserve yet – sorry guys – but they’re on my to-do list very near the top.
For anyone fighting a sudden life-changing issue/condition/diagnosis or alternatively and no less importantly dealing with a day-to-day constant struggle this is gold-dust! Many thanks MDM!!
