The accident was the right in the middle of a very turbulent time.
Blogging is my therapy. It’s hard not to share details with you my friends.
We’ve been living in a pressure cooker for well over a year now. While I try hard not to let my deafness create any type of “victim” label, I am exhausted by the emotional toll of someone using my disability to bully me.
There, I said it.
And legally it can’t be considered slander or unfair criticism because it’s true.
I thought bullying was a school-age problem. Not something I’d face as an adult from someone in authority. And not in a way that targets the fact that I cannot hear.
I’m the first person to champion the rights of someone who has a disability. The first to try to work it out with communication. And the last to give up.
Except that I’m spent. I’ve never been on the receiving end of this kind of long-term attack.
Sorry, I’m having trouble finding the funny today.
So I thought I’d link you up with some things that make me smile:
Happy Coming Home Day Kona!
(Yes, that’s what you call it when you don’t know your horse’s birthday :)
This girl has a will to live that is beyond amazing.
It’s been three years – and much fattening up from that first day we got her.
We love you sweet girl!

So I followed the link over, and found a little gem at The 4th Frog Blog. Hope it makes you smile too:
I couldn’t help but grin right around the 2:50 mark…
