  • Soy un hombre sencillo, con sus virtudes y defectos, que a pesar de las dificultades intento conservar la alegría, pero sobretodo mi Fé. Tengo claro que "el amor se ha de poner más en las obras  que en las palabras" San Ignacio de Loyola
Buen inicio de Cuaresma, tiempo de reflexión y reconciliación. -----------

  • My name is Kiera and I am passionate. I am competitive. I am really freakin creative. I am compassionate, caring, empathetic, kind, and loving. I am whimsical, adventurous, spontaneous, pragmatic, stubborn, and realistically optimistic. I  am a fighter, an artist, and a teacher. I am a lover of wonder and beauty. I am resilient, resistant, and doggedly determined. I am loyal, honest, and and dependable. And, I am disabled.

People often talk about disability with the words overcome, Despite, But, and Or. But disability has no Despites, Buts, and Ors.

I am disabled AND an artist. I  am disabled and an athlete. I am disabled and an intelligent being with opinions and preferences. I am disabled and I have goals and dreams. I am disabled and I have a voice. 
The only despite there needs to be is this....Despite the societal ableism, despite the discrimination, despite the disbelief, and despite the bullying and hate, I am still a whole person who has a place in this world, makes a difference, needs love, and gives love.

I am nothing more than I should be and I am nothing less than anybody else. I have a purpose and I have a reason to live a fulfilling and happy life. I have strengths, I have weaknesses, and I have insecurities. I have limitations, just like every single human alive. Mine might look different than yours, but they do not stop my mind and my body from being worthy of respect, love and life.

  • ... Tired? Yes! ... Happy I got out of bed to get the BTS Map of the Soul: 7 album? HELL YEAHHH! ... but most of all I'm happy I managed to get myself up and out to go see my sister and my neice 😁 
Suffering from anxiety and being on the autistic spectrum is extremely difficult, pair that with suspected fibromyalgia and insomnia is hell on earth! But those moments when I get myself to leave the house and be with those I love are a blessing 🥰 Even if they only come around once in a blue moon 😭😭 xx

  • A: The main thing to realize is that the diagnosis indicates that the child is not developing skills at the same rate as typically developing children. You may never know why that is the case, but there are steps that you can take to help him try to catch up with his peers. The most important step involves identifying which skills you can teach him, starting today. https://bit.ly/2Qi6SqT

  • PoTS - Postural tachycardia syndrome

So I’ve had ME since I was 18 (16 years), and throughout all those years I have struggled with standing, walking and even sitting up. I’ve also repeatedly told doctors and health professionals that my heart rate goes very high and I get heart palpitations. I even had a consultant look into this 10 years ago. He found during my 24 hour ECG that my heart rate went up and down drastically, but since he didn’t know the cause he said it must be caused by mental illness. I knew I didn’t suffer mental illness and was frustrated at the lack of help.

However this year, after 16 years of these symptoms, I finally saw a consultant who diagnosed the cause - PoTS (Postural tachycardia syndrome). Postural tachycardia syndrome is an abnormality of the functioning of the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system. And there are treatments for it! Which means all this time I could have been taking things and doing things to improve these very debilitating symptoms, but I wasn’t as healthcare professionals were not taking my symptoms seriously.

I’m glad I now have this diagnosis. It makes so much sense and helps me understand my symptoms so much better, but I do wish there was more awareness of this condition.

I suspect a lot of ME sufferers have PoTS and are not being diagnosed with it as too few healthcare professionals know anything about it. 
So I am posting this to raise awareness. If you really struggle with being upright, research PoTS and try to get a doctor or consultant to get you tested. It’s crazy to waste years of your life in bed when things can be done to help you be upright again.

  • DIFFERENCES IN SOCIAL SECURITY - The main difference between Social Security Disability (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is the fact that SSDI is available to workers who have accumulated a sufficient number of work credits, while SSI disability benefits are available to low-income individuals who have either never worked or who haven't earned enough work credits to qualify for SSDI.
*
While many people don't distinguish betweeLawn SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance), they are two completely different governmental programs. While both programs are overseen and managed by the Social Security Administration, and medical eligibility for disability is determined in the same manner for both programs, there are distinct differences between the two programs.

If you have questions about which program to apply for, call us at (801) 666-2899.

Ohne Filter ging es nicht. Ich bin noch "blasser" als normalerweise. Ich habe letzten Samstag, Nachts überraschend die Symptome eines Magen-und-Darm-Virus erfahren. Mir ging es schlagartig sehr schlecht. Ich hatte erhöhten Flüssigkeitsverlust, konnte auch nichts bei mir behalten. Mein Kreislauf ging dramatisch in den Keller, ich konnte mich kaum auf den Beinen halten. Habe viel geschlafen.
Ich weiß natürlich über die Gefahren dieser Erkrankung in Kombination mit meinem Krankheitsbedingten Untergewicht. Aber auch mir bleibt es nicht erspart, egal wie vorsichtig oder steril ich mich verhalte.
Und natürlich ist es nicht mein erster Magen-und-Darm-Virus aber so heftig hatte ich es noch nie. Es hat mich richtig umgehauen. Ich schlafe sehr viel und bin unglaublich dankbar für mein Beatmungsgerät. Sonntag und Montag war ich tatsächlich 24 Stunden am Gerät, da ich keine Kraft hatte. 
Ich bin selbst sehr schockiert über meinen Zustand. Ich bin normalerweise stark, möchte so schnell wie möglich wieder auf die Beine kommen, raus aus dem Bett, fit und selbstständig bleiben. Diesmal nicht. Ich wollte einfach liegen und schlafen.
Von daher hat meine Hausärztin auch richtig gehandelt und mich in die Klinik eingewiesen. Die 2 Infusionen, die ich dort bekommen habe, haben meinem Körper doch gutgetan. Obwohl, ich schon sehr gegen die Klinik war. 
Aber ich bin auf dem Weg der Besserung, esse und trinke wieder "leichte Kost" nehme fleißig Tabletten gegen die Symptome und fühle mich besser...
Fazit ist: Am Ende mein Körper hat sich auch hier sehr verändert. Ich sollte es bedenken und ihn nicht überschätzen. Und Hilfe annehmen, auch wenn es einen Klinikaufenthalt beinhaltet.

  • I want to give some love to what was probably the most under appreciated film of 2019, Give Me Liberty. Last year, when I got the opportunity to go to Sundance Film Festival, I really had no idea what to expect. Actually, I expected to see a lot of movies that didn’t make sense and/or were just plain bad. On the opening night, I drove into the mountains to Park City in an attempt to see some big premier that doesn’t bear remembering, but I didn’t get in. With nothing else that sounded particularly interesting, I randomly picked Give Me Liberty. Suffice to say, expectations were low, but this one blew me out of the water. It’s a chaotic, hilarious, deeply touching story, and it genuinely changed the way that I think about disability. Unlike Hollywood’s frequent casting of famous actors as disabled characters, the disabled community has real visibility and representation in this movie, and it’s a really beautiful thing. The greatest gift of film is it’s ability to build empathy for those who are different from us. I won’t go into story details, but it involves the collision of people from vastly different cultures and backgrounds, which proves both thought provoking and very funny. It’s about finding understanding for each other and connecting on a human level, beneath the superficial we wear on the surface, something we need now more than ever. I genuinely loved Give Me Liberty and I’m disappointed it didn’t get the attention it deserves. If you want to watch it, I’m sure google can tell you where it’s available;) #disability #disabilityawareness #sundancefilmfestival #givemeliberty #givemelibertymovie #disabilityinclusion #disabled #sundance #film #movie #indiefilm

  • Proving that everything is possible to the next generation is important especially students with disability because having a disability is difficult to live with it. Sometime it is hard to dream the reason  is you might doubt that if you have the ability to do what you love. Listen to me when I say. We might have one disability but we can have a lot of abilities if we work hard and never give up. #disability  #abilities #Never #Give #Up

  • Over the years NADE's various cooperatives have had several visitors. In order to contribute as much as they can and ensuring the well being of the disabled people.

These visitors had a very positive and empowering experience while visiting these cooperatives. 
Here is a thought on his experience shared by a fellow visitor.

  • Disability representation in Hollywood isn't what it use to be, and that’s great! 🎬 Read the observations of increased disability inclusion from @forbes at the #linkinbio.

  • I already know I have Raynaud’s, but recently when I’ve been cold (mainly while driving or outside) my fingertips have been pruning up like I’ve been swimming, and they’ve also been peeling. I’m sure it’s connected to the cold weather, but I’ve never had this happen before and it seems odd to me. Not sure if it’s worth mentioning to a doctor because wrinkled fingers seems pretty unimportant compared to shit like both my legs going numb when I stand up too long. #lupus #lupuswarrior #lupusawareness #sle #sjogrenssyndrome #sjogrens #sjogrensawareness #sjogrenswarrior #mctd #mixedconnectivetissuedisease #autoimmunedisease #autoimmunewarrior #butyoudontlooksick #babewithamobilityaid #handicapped #handicap #chronicillness #illness #disability #arthrirtis #ebv

  • the only barriers in life are the ones we put on ourselves...
.
On the 17th March I’ll be at the @naidex_show event with @accessableuk talking about travelling with a disability. I can’t wait to share my experiences... the good, the bad and the down right hilarious! But what is most important to me is to challenge people’s perceptions around disability and for you to understand that nothing has to stop you living your life to the fullest. For me that means being able to travel the world without any compromises
.
Any questions before the show, use #AccessibleTravelQs over on twitter or drop me a message. Hope to see some of you there!

  • You can take your meds, eat healthy, exercise everyday, get good sleep and listen to every single piece of advice your doctor gives you and still be sick. There is no perfect formula for healing and that’s the most frustrating aspect of it.

  • Um I'm obsessed with these earrings. I bought them for my bridesmaids and bought a pair for myself. Wear them allll the time
👂 
Anywho- I guess today is international CI day! Whoot! To this awesome technology. We all know I'm so grateful and like to get on the blabberville train sharing all my experiences pros and cons. TOMORROW I'm seeing my CI audiologist for my four month appt. I'm so nervous and excited. I'll be in the hearing booth a lot for this appointment (will have many layers I can tear off while I suffer from claustrophobic panic attacks in that little bomb shelter double door room) but my speech recognition will be tested. Before my CI I had 18 percent speech recognition in that ear with my hearing aids. Can't wait to see where I'm at today. ❤️
❤️
❤️ What's your speech recognition story? ❤️❤️❤️

  • Chronic illness is ups and downs, wins and losses, it’s everything in between. Some days you might literally be on top of a mountain(physically or metaphorically) and another day, you might be unable to get out of bed. ⁣
⁣
I am here to tell you that it is okay! It’s okay! Not every day is going to be a great day for your symptoms, and that’s ok! It’s ok to be sad, to cry, and to be mad. After you are done with that, grab a notebook and write down 3 things in your life that you are grateful for. Write down 3 ways that you are enough. Write down 3 things that you love about yourself. Look around you, write down 3 small things that you notice that are beautiful. What makes life beautiful is the good and the bad. There is beauty in both. As much as you loved that day on top of the mountain, learn to love the quiet peaceful moments in bed. They are both beautiful, special, and needed in life. You’re worth is not in your productivity, it’s not in your ability, it’s not in getting out of bed. It is in who you are as a person. You are strong, you are kind, you are beautiful, you are resilient, you are a warrior.

  • “My illness can’t stop me”⁣
⁣
Except, sometimes it does.⁣
⁣
Whenever I hear platitudes like the one above I think to myself- that’s a nice sentiment, but realistically? My illness does prevent me from doing many of the things I want to do.⁣
⁣
Little things. Like tackling the clutter building up in my room, or taking a long walk in fresh air when I’m getting restless, or going out with friends for dinner and drinks to unwind after a stressful week.⁣
⁣
And big things too. Like managing a career, or traveling the world, or successfully maintaining a long term relationship, or starting a family of my own.⁣
⁣
Being chronically ill, there’s this pressure to overcome. To beat the odds. To fight your way through it.⁣
⁣
But I’ve been fighting for years now, and I’m still sick. I haven’t overcome my illness and I certainly haven’t beaten any odds.⁣
⁣
Does that make my experience any less valid?⁣
⁣
Our society glorifies adversity, but only when it’s paired with a happy ending. Hardships that are just...ongoing? Those we’re meant to hide away until we have a “better” story to tell.⁣
⁣
And that narrative wears on you. I’d be lying if I said I don’t have moments where I feel ashamed and embarrassed to have to answer “No” when asked the loaded question “Are you feeling any better?”⁣
⁣
Sometimes I have to remind myself that I am not responsible for the uncomfortable feelings other people have about my chronic illness.⁣
⁣
If you’re sick and experiencing the very real limitations that come with illness, please know that you are not less than for not being able to will yourself better. You can’t just “decide” you won’t be stopped by something that literally hijacks your physical functioning.⁣
⁣
And personally? The stories I’m always most amazed by aren’t the ones of people who got sick and were miraculously healed soon after. What’s impressive to me are those who endure years of suffering yet somehow continue to get up to face each day anyway. The ones who’ve lost nearly everything but find a way to build a new life, however radically different than the one they imagined. To me that kind of strength is worth celebrating just as much as, if not more than any happily ever after.
