Crazy Career Goals Crazy Career Goals

Okay, so I’ve just had a minor career epiphany. I really want to start a consultancy through which I take a holistic, in-depth and collaborative approach to helping people solve their long-term health problems: pointing them in the direction of likely diagnoses, and counselling them through the medical pathways to…

Inclusion of disability rights at the DNC

I am so gratified to see that they actually gave time to speaking about disability rights at the DNC. Tom Harkin did a great job of pointing out that while the ADA was a legislative milestone, the States still have a way to go toward achieving equality of disabled people (as do so many other countries).

My face when I request to join a Facebook-based support group and the admin expresses concern that I'm a spammer because my account uses gender-neutral pronouns.

Jesse Williams' BET Awards speech

This is freaking poetry.

Referendum snark

Because you can always count on Twitter to come up with the silver lining in a turdpile of a situation #mixedmetaphors


This hashtag is helping keep my mind off the agonising suspense of the count.

#MeBeforeEuthanasia: The disabled community's response to Me Before You #MeBeforeEuthanasia: The disabled community's response to Me Before You

Apologies if this has already been covered in a previous post. I’ve only been sporadically lurking the last little while, so I may well have missed it.

Hello everyone!!! It’s been ages since I’ve been on here - not for any specific reason, but after my prolonged narcoleptic hiatus from work last fall, I threw myself back into work with a vengeance when I returned, with the result that my social life (both online and off) has been minimal-to-nonexistent until recently.

I have finally found a pen that works for me, and it is glorious:

Cruz: Endorsing Trump could damage Sarah Palin's brand

“Earlier Tuesday, a campaign spokesman for fellow Republican hopeful Ted Cruz told CNN that endorsing Trump would be “a blow” to Palin because of progressive views Trump has expressed in the past.”

The thing about chronic illness...

Sorry guys, I know I’m spamming you with all my illness talk lately. Having been more or less bedridden for three months now, and finally starting to feel better, I’m on a bit of a kick of trying to bring some awareness of idiopathic hypersomnia, and chronic illness in general.

#InvisibleNoMore #InvisibleNoMore

A wee bit of shameless self-promotion here. I’ve been trying to figure out for a while how I can do my bit to make invisible illness in general, and idiopathic hypersomnia in particular, more visible. Someone in the IH Facebook group recently posted a side-by-side selfie comparing ‘good’ and ‘bad’ days, noting that…
