Hi you guys. I forgot to add a few descriptions to my state of being. Remember I was at a party cruising over to this woman in my wheelchair. I had a full on wedgie at the front, you know, revealing a package of nuts. Because of my frontal wedgie, my sweatpants were hiked up to my knees, revealing the whitest skin known to mankind. They should call me "The Human Guppy." Anyway, Mr. Guppy is slumped over to the left, drooling, laughing and mumbling. Would you run away? Or stay and have a chat? Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with you. I forgot it last week.
The other thing I want to share with you is I asked my daughter what she wanted to be for Halloween. She said, "Oh, I want to be a princess." I said, "A princess? A princess is a woman who is demeaning, subservient, she gives off a feeling of being self-important." I said to my child, "No, you're not a princess, you're a goddess. You're strong, powerful, self entitled." She looked at me with a blank expression, and the conversation quickly turned to cat videos. Kids are always entertaining. The point is, you gotta have fun. Kids are fun. You gotta play, cause, being in this state, the way I am, you know, having a brain injury, is a real drag.
And kids are one way of lightening things up. The other fun thing was, I went to an arts and crafts fair where my friend here had a stall. It was pretty cool. Check out her website. fullcirclequilting.com. Get out there and do things.
One other thing I wanted to share with you was I met with my social worker and we figured out a way to get help by using my spend-down. A spend-down is when you have to pay money back to the state. It's a long story but a social worker will know about it. It's basically so you can get people who you want to work for you without going through an agency. If you go through an agency you have to take who they give you. Right now, I want to get someone who can help me with my photography and my health needs. Does any of this make sense to you? Anyway, I just thought I'd share that with you. You're always learning stuff when you have a brain injury.
I'm gonna leave it at that for now. Check out the documentary I did. Share it with anyone you know.
This is B. Nice, signing off. Love, B. Nice
