I’ve got quite a lot done this week where Facing The Music is concerned – more of that later.
But what I’ve really struggled with this week is sleepless nights – with a lot of the Facing The Music content on my mind. I spoke in my article about experiencing all sorts of disability-related mistreatment and abuse – as of my next post one of these incidents will appear each week until others begin contributing their own experiences.
The fact that these incidents will begin to be spoken about is a really good thing for me in a way of course but obviously none of them have been nice to remember and have often left me feeling traumatised, worthless or both, despite my determination to fight.
But what will help me beat future sleepless nights is that people are slowly but surely starting to listen and respond! So that the push for change can begin sooner!
A kind email from a friend who understood the severity of my disability-experiences from my article has made all the difference!
And then there was the interest of a total stranger (who I phoned on a blog-helpline just before writing this.) Thanks Kyle! These reachings-out make a difference! That’s really what’s needed to make this campaign make a noise and achieve its aim sooner!
