…speaking through art, poetry and humour…oh and politics too!

Lose the ‘Us and Them’ Attitude.

us and them

I’ve just realised that I’ve drifted away from campaigning for M.E.

I think it’s because we have a much bigger fight on our hands and that is the attack upon all disabled and vulnerable people in this country by our own Government.

It’s part of the ‘losing the Us and Them’ attitude I am proud to feel.

I stand up for myself with M.E….a friend with Cerebral Palsy…many friends with mental illness…a friend with Aspergers…a husband with paraplegia…a stranger with anything that limits their life, makes them feel less worthy or makes them so damned ill they can’t fight and speak out themselves.

We all need to pull together now.

We are all fighting for our rights, our sanity and our financial security.

We are fighting against a thought process that is so deeply embedded now that it’s going to be a struggle to make them lose that attitude that disability means ‘lesser being’ or ‘liar’ or ‘scrounger’

I’m willing to fight that attitude and take on that struggle for my own survival and those and I love and those I don’t even know…because we are all ONE!

Forget the ‘Us and Them’ and remember we are in this beautiful life together. 🙂

This blog is my story about a life forever changed by chronic illness. I hope you'll laugh and cry with me as I try to make sense of it all. Oh, and nothing I say should ever be construed as offering medical or legal advice.
