Today, thousands of kids walked out of school to show support for Gun Control. If I ever did anything like this when I was in school, I would have probably gotten in school suspension and lost all my points for the day. I went to a special school and we had a point system. If we behaved, we earned points. If we misbehaved, we lost points. Not to mention I would have had an unexcused absence and had to write “I will not skip school again,” 100 times. Most shooters turn out to be loners. Why not encourage kids to ask kids who eat lunch by themselves to join them for lunch and try to make friends with those kids. Gun control is not the answer. If you take away guns, then only the bad people will have them because they steal them anyway. Guns don’t kill, people kill. I’ve been bullied, made fun of and had negative, nasty and hurtful things written about me on line but I would never even think about murdering anyone. We need to do more about mental health, not disarming law abiding citizens.
Happy New Year.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the U.S.A.
I went to Ciao for lunch today and I had pizza. It was good.
I went to the movies today and saw Only The Brave. It was very good.
I had a good weekend. Saturday, I rode my bike. My mom and I went to our neighbor’s across the street for dinner. I had potatoes, carrots and onions. It was good. Today I rode my bike.
Last night, I tried posting on one of my pages but it wouldn’t let me. I was able to type but it wouldn’t allow me to post what I typed. I went to help because I wondered why I couldn’t post when I was able to post on the 16. I found out facebook made changes to pages for page managers. They have a new page editor. Unfortunately, they now require page managers to pay to advertise their page or pages on facebook in order to post status updates on their pages. I’m disabled and on a fixed income. I can not afford to pay to promote my pages. The only way around it is to post here on my blog and share on facebook.
I don’t have much to say right now. I just thought I would post something to let you know I’m still around. Have a good week.
This is a reblog from another blog. I hope you like it as much as I did.
Guest blog from Paula, who contacted our helpline earlier this year after learning she had cerebral palsy – at the age of 60. Until then, she had never received any kind of support. Here she shares her experience.
In January 2015, soon after my mother died, my sister called me and told me there was something she needed to tell me – that I have mild cerebral palsy, and that my mother had never told me. I am 60 years old, and I had known nothing about it until then.
I went to my GP and asked him to read me the medical notes from my birth. Sure enough, there it was.
My mother and I had not been in touch for 23 years, for many reasons. I will never know why she didn’t tell me.
There was more of a stigma around disability at that time, so maybe that…

When able bodied people misuse electric mobility scooters in stores because they are too lazy and they don’t want to walk they are taking them away from the people who need them the most.
