Warfare, The 1st Sunday In Advent, & Hope For Those With Disabilities

This one comes heavy with little words to say beyond my post. Please find inspiration here & share where you like. May the 1st Sunday in Advent bring you hope & peace.

It seems inescapable these days. Images and news about war and gun violence is everywhere. A few weeks ago I was watching as pictures of children in the middle east, bloody and crying in pain, were being carried frantically to any place of refuge that might be found. With horror flooding the pit of my stomach, I began asking myself the question; what happens with the disabled in places of violent war?#Disability #War #socialjustice Read More Here: Warfare, The 1st Sunday In Advent, & Hope For Those With Disabilities

Hi, I'm from Ukraine. And died yesterday.

Not literally. But it could easily have happened.

I was just lucky.

I was lucky not to live in Bucha. I was lucky not to be born in Mariupol.

I was lucky that it wasn't my house that was hit by an

enemy missile.

Each of the Ukrainians could have been killed yesterday, a month ago or on February 24. Just because we live in our own country.

Each of us dies inside every day. Over and over again.

Even being safe.

Even continuing to "live."

The invisible battle

A war wages in my own mind
This war has no beginning
Nor does it ever end
People say they understand
But they will never understand casualties every day
This battle never ending and always finding new weak pints
How do you fight a war you cannot see
This were has grown stronger and scarier
How do you fight a voice you don’t know where is coming from
How do you fight a creature you see but you cannot move
How can you win an invisible battle
When life and dreams blur
When will this invisible war end

Not my best work kinda rushed it but it’s hard to put to words. Any criticism is appreciated.

#extremely -frustrated #ineedhelp ##ineedtreatment

I am totally frustrated and worn out, I have gone to my Psychologyst asking for help, I have been on treatment with him since 2005, all I get is drugs. I am so tired of... I want to get to the root of my trauma which is much,
C- ptds since I was a little girl.

I left my husband with a suitcase,
I've been living mostly out of my car, my brother's couch for the last eighth years... While he has a wonderful life with a family and Hardley Davidsons.

I have fought to stay sane, but at this point I feel I am loosing my battle... I asked my Dr. To please send me to a treatment center .
The problem is I have Medicare as Primary. And Tricary for life as seecondary.... This week has been hell for me, the only place Medicare will approve is
"Wilmington treatment Center"
I have heard some bad things about this place...
Has anyone been there, or knows of someone that has been there?

Or knows of a place in the Raleigh area that they would recommend.? Please I am begging. # #desperately #searching

I try to shy away from political writing here, but the masks from Russia needs to be addressed. I need to share this here for the folks who may not be from the US and wondering what in hell is going on right now. The president commited a crime by striking a deal for masks from Russia. He broke sanctions for this. He overstepped congress yet again. And he legit just did a quid pro quo with Putin and admitted it to our faces. Putin does not give freely EVER. In the time of war we are in, wether biological or other, war is war. You do not accept "help" from a foreign operative currently attacking the very threads of our nation in our election system. This is interfering with an election in a way we've never seen before. Do not fall for this whole oh look how nice BS he is trying to show. Remember who he is and what he has done already. This is more of the same. Putin doesn't just "give" without something in return and by Trump accepting this he has yet again made us look like fools on the world stage and put you, me, and every single person in more danger as Russia now invaded us yet again and during a pandemic our president authorized the invasion of our nation no less. Do not fall for it!!! This is huge! We have allies. You go to them for help and they to us. Not to our sworn enemy of the state. Ever. Two hours ago, Trump fired the Intelligence Director who blew the whistle on Ukraine. There is no doubt this was the exchange for the masks (and there may be more involved too). These masks are currency in a biological war and an international intelligence war. These are not health supplies, they are the blood of our very nation and a betrayal to every single American and every one of our allies in a way never seen before. This is not OK. I just want everyone to understand this and know this was not charity. This was not humanity. As Lady Gaga says, "it was a perfect illusion" . #masks #COVID19 #President #lies #War #NationalSecurity #HealthCare #medicalsupplies
