Disability is Headed to the International Stage!

Hi all! I have been a part of this community for a while and you guys have given me so much strength so I want to include you amazing humans in this achievement.

Today I was crowned Miss North America Revolutionary and I will be headed to the international competition in February.

I’m really excited for this year because I get to tell everyone about my platform which I’m calling Breaking the Glass Ceiling.

I’m focusing in on the idea that as a community those of us with disabilities often struggle to find gainful employment and so we can have a lower quality of life when compared to others.

My goal is to help educate employers and government officials on how to create meaningful accommodations in the workplace.

I would really appreciate your help sharing my message! So, could each of you share my story with your friends and family? Let’s make an impact!

Who could benefit from hearing your story?

We’re going back to our truest roots for this week’s self-care theme — storytelling.

Here on The Mighty, there are so many amazing people who share their experiences daily. We all benefit in different ways, resulting in a community for those who may share a diagnosis, have a similar experience, or can simply gain perspective through others’ vulnerability.

One thing we know for sure is that each of our stories are important and worth sharing (yes, yours too!), especially in those moments when we need support and a listening ear. When we share our stories, we not only build community, but we also let others know they are not alone.

Who could benefit from hearing yours?

Ooof. That hit home. I get so worried about accommodating others emotional and intellectual landscapes that I forget to make my own mark and fight for myself. It’s so much easier to fight for others. Not sure why 🤔#Advocacy

Support me in my BPD Advocacy?

Don’t know if this is allowed but due to the lack of understanding from the people closes to me since my diagnosis in April 2023 I’ve decided fo speak up more about Bpd and mental health in general. I felt so alone due to my “support system” even questioning the realness of this monster I fight everyday. And I want others to know that they’re not alone and to keep fighting. So let me know if this is allowed and I’ll post a link to subscribe to my blog launching January 2024! Thank you for the support ahead of time ♥️ #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorderBPD #BipolarDisorder #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Advocacy @SLbpd @bpd-heros @imnotmydiagnosis @i-need-more-explanation @bpdworrier35

988

988, as you know, is a new number to call, in the United States, if your in crisis. We are getting closer to the 1 year mark of this number. I have a question for everyone Do you feel it has helped or do you feel, it creates too much confusion, when knowing, which numbers to call, when in a crisis? I would like to hear your take on this. Also, if anyone has used the number, what was your experience like? Looking forward to seeing some answers on this, in the comment section. #Crisis #MentalHealth #Advocacy
