A Spoonful Of…

Not a lot of energy for writing much today, which is just as well…if you even have a passing interest in understanding multiple sclerosis and disability in general a little better, you ought to be reading some of Christine Miserandino’s writing anyway at some point.

I have been remiss here in not including earlier the marvelous essay by Ms. Miserandino, ‘The Spoon Theory.’ It’s an explanation of one of the most difficult concepts to communicate that I know of: the practical effects of disabilities including factors like chronic pain or fatigue for healthier people who have no experience with them, and she does it brilliantly. In fact, I’m going to link to it so it’s always available to anyone for viewing without their having to look for it.

Give it a read, or just watch the video presentation below. I bet it’ll help you understand where I’m coming from, or at the very least give you something to consider.

About Glenn Horowitz

I'm a 20 year civil courier pilot, retired by multiple sclerosis. From summer of 2011 until December 2013 my efforts went mostly to my first blog, Get Glenn Mobile, to raise the funds needed to convert my Honda Element for wheelchair access and end my virtual housebound confinement. This was realized just after Christmas 2013 when I was able to acquire a superb X-WAV Element, already modified for my use. Though the original goal wasn't met, what was raised, plus my Honda, plus the proceeds of the sale from my mother's car were enough to make it happen. It's an amazing story in itself! Now, after my release from homebound prison, I can augment the journalistic work I'm doing for the American Daily Herald by getting out in public, talking with people, perhaps even getting some media attention to explain why someone as disabled as I am knows these unfunded entitlement programs like Social Security and its 'disability insurance' are bogus and do more harm than good, and in fact why the whole welfare/warfare state is contrived to keep the gravy train rolling for those who benefit while they drain our resources and eat out our substance. Why 'public education' is really public INDOCTRINATION that's become a meat grinder destroying our youth and our future. Why the fiat currency foisted on us by the Federal Reserve for a hundred years has destroyed the dollar and will without doubt cause its collapse. On and on the list goes, and I want to talk with the world about these vital matters.
