So today I thought I’d give you some context for HellOnWheels, and why I blog.
After being part of a self-advocacy group for over 8 years, it would seem as different faces come and go, I still needed to explain to people who I am and what I’m on about.
And basically, why I deserve to have opinions so it would seem.
I asked and offered a blog post to contribute to a newsletter that has been rebooted by a lovely volunteer. So, I was surprised to find my blog contribution still not being included.
I had to ask numerous times. I do have a tendency to follow up and not let things go until I get answers. I think with kids it would be considered ‘pester power!’, but I am not a child nor do I want any.
I was told after someone read one of my posts that “Oh she’s got strong opinions.”
And that was why.
So, this is my explaining why I deserve to have the opinions I have.
