I appreciate all the offers of help, both personal help and also offers to help with the overall situation affecting lots of people. I appreciate it and am more aware of it and grateful than you may know.
I am able to write exactly what I write, when I write it, where I write it. Sometimes it looks like I should be able to respond. If I can I will. I’m operating at top capacity. I can’t do more. I have reasons for every way things end up. But I don’t usually have lots of choice how things end up. So I can’t always respond even when I want. And most things I want to write for any reason go totally unwritten. Or written wrong.
So here is what I have.
Please contact my DPOA (Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare) Laura Tisoncik. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Also the Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN). Or possibly Anne Corwin who is my other DPOA.
I’m putting all my effort into communication right now. What you get is my best. My brain works how it works. Not always to my own wishes or benefit let alone someone else’s. I can’t do more. I wish I could.
So please contact these other people if you want to help me and others. I am sorry I can’t always reply more directly, individually, quickly, or effectively. All these things are part of having developmental disabilities. Some of them are other things too. They’re part of why people like me have trouble getting help when we’re in trouble. Everything is designed like the obstacles we need removed don’t even exist. Then people expect us to function in ways we can’t.
Anyway I’m exhausted and want to write more but need to post this. Thank you.
