We’re broke.

I might explain later, but I just have to get this posted and out of the way or I’ll get bogged down in explaining and never make the post. Suffice to say my budgeting skills suck and my budgeting assistance vanished a long time ago, as did my assistance with the physical actions involved in paying bills, rent, etc. So I’ve been in the hole a lot more than I ought to be. And that’s besides changes in the economy and the fact we’re poor and can’t work and etc. all adding into it of course.)

I don’t usually announce this kind of thing or ask for help but it’s been a bad year.

Anyway, I’ve started a specific Amazon wishlist that should send to my current mailing address (different from my usual one) that’s specifically for assistive tech, access mods, medical supplies, and other things related to medical and/or disability access.

Right now that includes a lot of blind access stuff and Braille-learning tools, because I’m just discovering all the ways my life can be made better by actually acknowledging I’m low vision and using the huge amount of tools available to make my life run more smoothly in that regard. It’s actually exciting, even just having the cane a few days has opened up huge things for me.

But anyway, so.

More things, more useful things, may exist later, but this is itself useful, then it’s good enough for now.

Also please do NOT send more drainage bags — I got a huge shipment and I don’t actually use them much anymore now that I have the GOMCO pump. I am extremely grateful for the ones I got, and may need them again, but right now there’s a zillion of them kicking around pretty much everywhere.

Hufflepuff. Came from the redwoods, which tell me who I am and where I belong in the world. I relate to objects as if they are alive, but as things with identities and properties all of their own, not as something human-like. Culturally I'm from a California Okie background. Crochet or otherwise create constantly, write poetry and paint when I can. Proud member of the developmental disability self-advocacy movement. I care a lot more about being a human being than I care about what categories I fit into.
