Therapy Review: Woman

Content : Sexual abuse I feel like throwing up. I feel like rolling over in the fetal position to cry. This is the second time the CNA 2 talked to me about homosexuality. The first time I didn’t say much. Today she went into detail and told me I look like a “stud”. That is […]

Handicapped?

Today my CNA referred to me as handicapped. I was offended! I thought, You’re gonna tell me that bc I sit in a wheelchair I’m handicapped? After further thought I’m like, oh hang on, there’s a little more to it than just being in a wheelchair. There are weeks when I can’t get up. There […]

Therapy Review: The Kids. DID. Switching.

I was able to go in to see Dr D today. It was good to see him. It feels like forever when its only been a few weeks. I talk to him every Monday though. Anyway, the kids stayed out the entire time. Between Michelle and Ariel (6) there was no time given to anyone […]

Winter Storms

Wow. Since the weather changed to ‘bury y’all in snow’ I’ve done nothing but sleep. I can’t wake up. I’m not in a lot of pain but I can’t wake up… or keep my food down. This happens from time to time though I’m not certain why. I get nauseated and nothing sounds good except […]

Gracious! These people are going to drive me crazy! First off they don’t show up but when they do, they can’t take me anywhere or run errands bc 9 times out of 10 they have no car insurance! The last CNA sent had no license and no insurance. You know the level of irresponsibility of […]

I Can Keep Going.

I Can Keep Going was drawn by Robert (19) with writing by Michelle (12). What stands out in this piece for me is the brick wall on the shoulders of the largest figure. We are feeling a lot of pressure right now. I like how Michelle processes things: This is how I feel. This is […]

The Grumpy CNA

Content: Suicide. Blood. Emotional angst. Cruel Words was painted by several of us. What strikes me is how affected I was by the suicide of the CNA’s friend. In the drawing there are heads blown off the people in the trees. That’s a first for drawings and hopefully the last. I know the kids inside […]

Mental Illness and Demons

My neighbor has Schizophrenia. A different neighbor says it’s not a mental illness but that he has demons. She inaccurately applied Scripture, which I quickly corrected, but its still on my mind and still bothers me. She has no idea what comments like that do to a person with a mental illness. Though I corrected […]
