Will likely come back to elaborate more here in the intro, but for now..
This latest blog of mine will serve first and foremost as a cyber cache of the best of the hundreds of emails that hit my inbox each day..
Those items featured here will not be of the personal nature, so fear not there just in case anyone felt a huge "WHOA" welling up in his or her throat because of any one-on-one correspondence we may have had.. As a certified peer supporter (of all disabilities), I take my oath of privacy, confidentiality VERY seriously.. Those forwards featured here will instead be all of an advocacy and/or announcement type nature coming most often from resources of note..
As to this particular cyber stash's content and with considerations towards my being so public about being a consumer survivor, nope, this blog will not be one or another disability-specific.. It will instead encompass, again, the many, MANY broader topics that hit my inbox each day..
My particular way of advocacy is by thinking of disability advocacy as this humongous tree.. There are any number of events, experiences that are quite relevant to almost, if not, all of us.. Those are the foundation of the tree I build on for what I share.. The more detailed, disability-specific information is best left most frequently shared on those resources that focus on, that daily live, eat, breathe the same.. (BTW, where applicable, those will shared here, too, 'pon occasion..)
Right from the git-go, you will immediately notice credits are openly provided to the originating information that will appear here.. Soo.. The only thing I will ask of others is that if you heard it here first, please consider linking, referring back to the related post..
Choosing a very resource-rich, open method of operation comes from my own first experiences of trying to find information out there on the Net, back when "psychiatric survivor" first became a part of my own vocabulary, back when I was desperately, very desperately trying to find something resembling immediate help, assistance of any kind.. More often than not, some info could be found, but, man, oh, man, were sources the best of well-kept secrets.. A very silly, very selfish, possibly even occasionally very Life-affecting practice..
'Nuff rambling.. Let's get down to the business of change, involvement, full community inclusion for people of all disabilities.. :WINK:
PS.. Whoops.... Almost forgot.. This blog is now officially considered the primary spinoff of Six. Almost Seven.. with the to-be included posts one day finding their way home to the same.. Mountain Splash will still remain active but will be receiving much more local advocacy information along with personal meanderings and pics..
