It's been 5.5 months since I had #COVID19. This is the best I've felt.

I ended up with #LongCovid. I lost my summer to the infection. Most days it was all I could do to walk to the end of my driveway and get my mail.

The neurological aspects of the result of the virus have ++
been the most difficult to deal with. The brain fog. The tingling and numb toes and fingers.

Then there's the cardio aspects - months of arrhythmia. I needed an ECG.

Then there's how my bloodwork has been a mess. Sugars up, cholesterol up, blood pressure up, liver enzymes ++
elevated. All of these things were fine before I got #COVID19.

I barely recognize myself post #COVID infection. I'm trying to reclaim my health but it's a battle.

Being #disabled and an activist, I'm all too aware of how #eugenics and #Ableism would factor into how this ++
pandemic has evolved. #disabled folxs worldwide warned everyone how this would go - and now here we are.

#eugenics and #fascism go hand in hand. Always have. It's both not surprising to me, but also takes my breath away at where we are as a global society.

We must push back.

Last night I was genuinely struggling. I thought about calling a help line. I thought about what it would be like to permanently escape. I thought about my dogs, my sister, my mom, my husband.

I thought about my dearest friend, and the few close friends I have.

I thought ++
about how helpless I feel watching this planet spin more and more out of control every day.

I thought about how powerless I feel. How hopelessness is taking me over.

I thought about the weight of my trauma. If it could ever be untangled.

I thought about being Indigenous and ++
how that means everything to me, but I'm not not connected to my community. I thought about how my neurology and skin tone make that seem impossible.

I thought about my health and what covid has done to me and how scared I am.

All that thinking kept me awake till 5am.

Then ++

In my late 40's, seeing nothing in #NovaScotia for #ActuallyAustistic women, I started a group which has become a program.

The program expanded to the creation of a teen group as well.

Yesterday our teen group did a scavenger hunt in the Camp Hill Cemetery.

I developed the ++
activity. I provided a history, etiquette for while we were there, and the questions of what we were looking for.

One of the graves that I wanted them to find was Viola Desmond.

We did and talked about her activism and reflected on the changes she made.

We found many ++
interesting headstones. Ones made of iron! Ones from the 1800's, Norwegian Merchant Marines, etc.

We had an amazing time!

I made them all giggle when I found this stone and covered the L 🤭
