    Grief

    #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?
