#CheckInWithMe #Autism #MentalHealth #Trauma #Ableism #indifference #dismissed #Ignored Heard back from my social worker (indirectly) today about getting them to fund my appointments with my psychologist (long, complicated story I don't have energy for now). They didn't even attempt to consider any the letters supporting the request. They just dismissed the concept out of hand. Are more interested in passing the buck. I feel so dismissed and ignored. Like my needs aren't even worth considering.

Trying not to let this whole thing spiral into #triggering childhood trauma. Never mind adulthood trauma as I fought my way into having a right to have a place in the world/society. I so don't have the energy for that kind of fight anymore! I guess it's a good thing I have a support person to fight that fight for me. Still...

Also having some triggering from the #AcademicAbleism #AcademicDiscrimination I experienced years ago, near the end of my academic career.

Sometimes society's ableism and indifference is so hard to deal with. We fight so hard to have basic human rights recognized, to have a useful, meaningful life like everyone else, and we get so much crap thrown at us, and so much ... well, everything. It makes it so hard to want to even try. Realizing over and over lately why I spent so many years taking a break from being involved in the world, even after I had the energy and ability to again: Society sucks! They are still a bunch of ignorant, ableist %$#@&!!!

Sorry, just needed to rant. This being a safe, supportive space and all, (mostly) it seemed like a good place.


I’m invisible

I don’t know how much longer I can live with these awful feelings inside. I feel like I’ve been in a relationship by myself for so long & the hurt & loneliness is unbearable. I feel like I I have literally spelled out how I feel & my desire to work on making things better. How long do I have to try to talk to someone who clearly doesn’t want to hear me? I feel like I no longer have a voice in my life. Am I the only one who is constantly yelled at to “shut up” when I’m trying so hard to work things out? When I’m reaching out & begging to have my feelings acknowledged is that wrong? Is it wrong to ask to go to couples therapy? Am I “just too sensitive “ if I’m offended that he thinks everything is fine as long he gets to keep doing what he wants and I don’t have a right to say anything about it? Is it really okay for me to continue to deal with our autistic daughter’s struggles alone while trying to deal with my MS as well as Anxiety & depression? Is it acceptable for him to always have a reason to be gone when I literally cannot leave the house for even an hour by myself?

Done with the Mighty #Ignored #dismissed #invisibleillnes

It’s seems to be just me that takes offence to being ignored by the Mighty support team for weeks. The last update has made it difficult to navigate my posts and comments. The update page has not change days. Or maybe no one is seeing my posts and comments. Either way this is not helping me.

I’m not suppose to take this personally. Well I guess I not a strong enough person to do so.

The only reason I’m not deleting the app is because I have posted too much of myself in year I’ve been on here. What comfort this app was giving me seems to now just create disappointments and sadness and what some would say an unrealistic hurt. I maybe able to come back without the weight of these feelings, but I guess I do not know whe that will be. 😔 #CPTSD #Depression #Anxiety #HSP #

How long do I have to wait for a meaningful response from someone on the Mighty customer service support team?

Still having tech issues after the latest update to the site sometime on Friday. No response. Have had very dismissive responses in the past as for other issues.

While I get it’s not necessarily personal....it’s still so triggering in addition to everything else going on in my life.......#CPTSD #Anxiety #invisible #Ignored #dismissed #notimportant #CheckInWithMe

I’m trying to not let it affect me so much..,,well not so successful with that.....am I overreacting?
