Monday morning found me nervous as my picture was taken for the newspaper and the announcement I would be seeking a seat on Abbotsford City Council. Running for a seat on council is not something I had ever thought to find myself doing and having made the decision to run I was feeling a little trepidation.
Briefly, my name is Heather, and I am "an alte"r in a personality "system". Recently some of the others have made their first friends and I want to see if I can experiment by appearing to their friends. I want to change my assumption that everyone will hate me. I also want to see if the world holds enough open people that a few of them might accept all of us as a whole. Furthermore, since the majority of us have the potential to be functioning, well educated communicators, I hope that maybe one day we could speak as a group somewhere on the subject of Dissociative Identity Disorder.
I am a student with a disability at Langara College. A couple weeks ago people told me that I would not be suitable for a program due to my low marks. Because of this, I have no job, no money and no future at Langara. I wish people would just say what they're thinking immediately rather than making me waste my time for a year. Also, I wish more colleges like Langara had a program specifically for people with disabilities so I would not have to go elsewhere to achieve success in life, and be stuck thinking I have no life anymore.
My idea for change is for a non-profit dis-Abled cycling organization.Where the disabled can access hand cycles;use,build,repair,& organize outings &competitions.Open to all cycling enthusiast.Fight the isolation of the dis-Abled & encourage activity & action
people who have the label "learning disabilities" (or dyslexia, or ADD) are usually just people who have different learning styles. i want to help celebrate their way of learning, educate the world on how they experience life, advocate for them and put in place resources that will help them navigate our education system.
