@GeorgeTakei 2/ In car 3 yrs. No disability income. No housing. We are the richest nation in the world. Richest country. No excuse.
@GeorgeTakei 6/ @GeorgeTakei Why isn't CA and the US doing the same thing? It takes 3 to 20 yrs on average to get Social Security disability. Most are denied, even to very sick. Outrageous.
@GeorgeTakei 5/ @GeorgeTakei The Englishman said that a medically disabled person is required to be put on disability income, housed, other support services, while still in the hospital. Unlawful to discharge them without these.
@NAMIAdvocacy 2/ I had to file a complaint with the Santa Clara Civil Grand Jury, which investigates the county's business. The civil grand jury voted to investigate my complaint.
@NAMIAdvocacy 3/ The Santa Clara Civil Grand Jury voted to investigate my complaint. I testified before them. (I'm forbidden by law from disclosing my testimony or what the civil grand jury members said.)
@NAMIAdvocacy 4/ The Santa Clara Civil Grand Jury interviewed stake holders throughout the county, at medical clinics, other places. Issued subpoenas.
@hardlynormal@DHCS_CA@tam_tweeets@GavinNewsom I'm 59. Former paralegal. Epilepsy since age 6, diagnosed & treated at Stanford. I lost decades of a productive life because it was legal, until the passage of the Affordable Care Act, to not insure epileptics. I had co-occuring probs, no medical help. -Michaela cc: @EpilepsyFdn
@zakwilliams Hi Zak, Condolences to your family on the anniversary of your dad's death. Thanks for your honesty. I'm 59, have had epilepsy since age 6. I lost decades of a fully productive life because it was legal to not sell health insurance to epileptics. -Michaela /1
2/ @zakwilliams With the advanced in science, I learned that my crushing depression and anxiety were part of the epileptic brain, and that it's not just seizures. When I watch drs and researchers on YT vida discuss epilepsy, co-occuring problems, I've tears on my face.-Michaela
So I took an action step today and emailed @MayorJerryDyer about getting a motel room for me in north Fresno, CA. I heard back from a city assistant: no motel vouchers. I'm 59, with epilepsy, 3rd yr in car. No drugs, drinking, crimes. -Michaela cc: @Jason_Elliott@SecFudge
2/ The woman from the @CityofFresno emailed me that I could stay in Fresno's shelters, a hell on earth which I've already done, and I will NOT be returning to those unaudited hell holes. -Michaela
3/ @SecFudge@Jason_Elliott@MayorJerryDyer@Esmeralda_Soria I've epilepsy. 59. Since age 6. Complications from epilepsy. I've ALREADY been in the hospital! I don't have a broken moral compass! I don't need hand holding and told what to do. I need a safe place to live! -Michaela
Friends: I am down to 3 bars of gas in my small car. No coffee $. No food $. I'm homeless, age 59, due to life-long epilepsy and other neurological conditions from it. The government takes YRS to grant benefits! Could anyone PayPal me $ for basic needs for the day? Thank you.
2/ Me: No drugs, alcohol, or crimes. Just epilepsy since age 6, and other neurological problems from it, which are quite serious. Our government decides to take yrs and play games with peoples' health. It takes YRS to get benefits, housing. Outrageous.
Thanks @danielbowmanjr for enough $ to get coffee, some food, and some gas until tomorrow. I just saw a mentally ill homeless man sifting thru a dumpster looking for food. He is young. Black clothes. Very hot here. I will try to find him. Feed. I want to cry at what gov does.
@LovesMercy I suggest that you file a written complaint with the Fresno County Civil Grand Jury. I'd be happy to testify before them. Even the liberal places like Dakota Eco Village are a culturally toxic mess, abusive, dangerous, arrogant Board members.
@LovesMercy Far from being decent, the @UUFresno Unitarians who run Dakota Eco Village in Fresno support the sexual harasment of women clients upon arrival by men clients. It was disgusting! Sick women being subjected to that crap! Cc: @DYSONJANZEN /1
@LovesMercy 2/ According to the sexist old Unitarian white man/Dakota Eco Village Board member Gerry B, I had to change one thing about myself & he got to choose. He said I was too strong. I'm 1/2 Russian, paralegal, worked for top Bay Area attorneys, and changed CA law for crime victims. 😂
@Auras_Journey@AFR365 4/ A friend suggested that I join Debtors' Anonymous (also Underearners' Anonymous). She thought they could teach me self-care concepts, after my family that was deficient in such skills. I did. I learned how to save for my birthday, things I wanted (earrings), flowers, foods.
@Auras_Journey@AFR365 5/ I learned how to do all of those things, met with two other people for Pressure Relief Groups to take Action Steps. I ultimately did not stay with DA because I'm not a shopper. I had an Anxiety Disorder. Being around the crowds & noise & lights & all that stuff was misery.
@Auras_Journey@AFR365 6/ As an epileptic with photosensitive epilepsy (the color red, stripes, certain patterns, office lights, concert lights, and movies)...they make me very sick, very fast. They cause too much electricity in my brain. ⚡🧠
@DanPriceSeattle@dtripp4801@FDRLST I'm in CA. We've other examples of outrageous spending behavior. Yrs ago voters approved high-speed train construction. $10 bil dollars. Now, $85 bil over budget, not done. I'm unemployed paralegal, 59, with epilepsy since age 6. Sleep in my Civic 3 yrs. No disability. No apt.
@DanPriceSeattle@dtripp4801@FDRLST 2/ I earned A's in college. Worked for Silicon Vly law firms. Moved to Fresno, CA (1.5 hrs S of Yosemite). Plans derailed by sick, hospital. Spent savings. Most relatives dead. Few survivors taking care of disabled relatives.
@DanPriceSeattle@dtripp4801@FDRLST 3/ I've been thru Fresno, CA's frightening, abusive shelter systems. Unicorn in it. No smoking, drinking, drugs, or crimes. Just epilepsy and photo sensitive epilepsy.
@Coldrain76 I've learned from the bizarre, unethical, lying, abusive Unitarians @UUFresno to watch out for their advertised code words like "love". The Unitarians aren't loving at all. They're arrogant, tryannical, abusive. Cc: @fresnoland@DYSONJANZEN
3/ @Coldrain76@fresnoland@FresnoBee@DYSONJANZEN So apparently the Unitarians @UUFresno subscribe to the conspiracy radio & meth client's beliefs that when a woman on the sts flicks her hair, she is really an agent of the gov stalking you, signaling another agent. 🤨
@Coldrain76@UUFresno The woman client listening to conspiracy radio refused to put on her earbuds because they "hurt", refused to do something quiet in the designated quiet room, or go to another location to listen to conspiracy/staking radio. The Unitarians were *hurt* 😂.
2/ @Coldrain76 According to the bizarre Unitarians @UUFresno my enforcing the boundaries was scary, violent. 😂. Those Unitarians are a piece of work. Perhaps a large order of Thorazine for the Unitarians AND conspiracy radio client. You ain't ruining my morning coffee, babe. 😂
3/ @Coldrain76 Local architect Art Dyson @DYSONJANZEN in Fresno, CA, has designed some libraries and other buildings in the area. He has designed a few small dwellings at Dakota Eco Village, the urban failure run by @UUFresno Unitarians.
@SenatorBorgeas@KMPHFOX26@MarieEdinger I agree that my native state CA should rescind skyrocketing gas tax. I was Silicon Vly paralegal, A's college, priced out of rent there ($3500 mo for 1 bedroom). Moved to Fresno for cheaper rent, Social Work degree @fresnostate. Plans derailed by sick, hospital. -Michaela /1
@kevinmnye1@HowTheWestWS I just went to Sbux n Fresno, CA. Got their largest ice water, free. My eye glasses broke, and I saw a blurry figure sitting in front of the gas station. I ordered 2 ice waters, delivered to the seated man. -Michaela /1 @MayorJerryDyer@BalderramaPaco
2/ @MayorJerryDyer@SoniaMDLR I suggest that we attend to homeless peoples' needs: places for rest, food, drink, bathrooms, medical care, storage of belongings. If we do NOT attend to their needs, they will not get vaxxed, in my opinion. Do not place them at Poverello/Rescue Msn.
