This is where I'll start the story of #myspoons today.
"But Tinu" some y'all say, "If your work is mostly digital, aren't you good as long as you have a laptop & a computer connection?"
A- For best results I must be able to do these things consistently.
B- To be really successful I must write books vs articles, be interviewed, give speeches, talks, workshops etc.
Sometime my fatigue is so bed I don't bother to get dressed. Struggle to get to the rest room.
Not much more. Which is frustrating given that I come from a grind mentality.
If I couldn't do all the work I charged enough to cover the cost of more mini-mes.
Without meds? Part time work if I'm lucky & taking a month to produce what used to take 2 to 5 days.
Nicki please tell them the answer...
Jobs need you to be available at certain hours or for you to produce a certain amount.
Disability is not like having cable put in. They might give it to you. They might don't. I'm on my third application.
I'm recording much of my knowledge into a library. It's taking forever but pretty soon I'll have enough to feel good about charging for it.
But on top of that your body feels like it ran a marathon when all you did was wake up. In terms of both pain & fatigue.
You try to will your body to move like it did before. It's simply not over.
So you imagine how satisfying it would be if your mind could get in a fistfight with your body.
And used it to criminalize addicts instead of getting them into life saving programs. Criminalizing those of us who/legit in the process.
More of us are in needless pain & the Ones of us who would respond to #MMJ?
Often can't access the medical care we need to be diagnosed.
Because I'll be at them into the light until we get our medicine back.
