The Paralyzed Language

I want to start this article with the fact that 20 out of 100,000 people suffer from total paralysis.

And a number of them aren't able to communicate with the ones they love because they aren't able to afford technology to talk to the ones they love.

And not just that, they are also unable to say what they need; I want to eat, drink, go to the toilet, etc.

It's a hard situation for the paralyzed people and the ones they love.

So here comes my idea of the "Paralyzed Language".

It's an idea like using the Maurice code, but by using your eyes.

Here's how it works.

The idea is that a blink is a "." And the "_" is the closure of the eye and the reopening.

And here is each symbol and what it represents:

. _ yes

_... No

_. _. Help

_.. Hungry

. Thirsty

.. _. Discomfort

__. Need medical attention

.... Need to talk to someone

.. Refereeing to family member or friend

. ___ bathroom

_. _ Sleep

. _.. Cold

__ Hot

_. Happy

___ Sad

. __. Frustration

__. _ thanks

. _. Now

... Later

_ Here

.. _ There

... _ Home

So by using this language, the paralyzed people will be able to speak again in their own way and communicate using their eyes. #totallyparalyzed #Paralyzed #Language #Speak #newspeech

Time for change

In society the Criminal Justice system, recovery programs and mental health services are not supporting or respecting our rights ! They say that they treat us with respect and dignity but the fact Is they don't and never will! if we don't start speaking up and fight to be seen then we allowing the world to think that it's ok to put us down, define us as people who can not function successfully in our society.

I wi never let anyone tell me who I am and what I can and can not do. In Broward county schools ,mental health services,recovery programs,courts and police are the problem. They dont have any idea how to help us because they dont listen to you or care . Over the past 7 years I have experienced discrimination, hate, and disrespect from the police, the medical services and the court system. It has been years of PTSD and fear for my life and my safety. I have been asked to prove that I was a teacher and that has worked for Westchester department of community mental health, homeless out reach, alternative to incarceration . They think that because I asked for support to get me to the hopstal when i new i wouldnt go if it was left up to me and I was concerned about my mental health makes me incompetent or incapable of living a productive life. I am smart ,intelligent ,and very passionate about making sure that I and all of us never have to be seen as anything less then who we are

I am asking all of you to please help me out I want to make sure that our rights are being respected by everyone.

If you have every experienced discrimination or hate ,disrespect and mistreatment at from those who are supposed to be helping us and making sure that our rights are enforced tell me about it! I want to share our stories with others to show the real facts from those who have experienced these


If we speak up and speak out we can make the world see the truth!
