1:05 pm - New Community Invitation

zandrea
Cross posted everywhere

Hello everyone. My name is Andrea. I am a mother to a Deaf child, sister to someone who has Cerebral Palsy and is a FIERCE disability right activist, and I myself have ADHD. I am also a Student at Antioch University Seattle in a BA completion program with a class assignment that I would love for you to be a part of. My class is centered around how individuals can use their personal stories to create social change.

For my project, I would like to gather stories of experiences of medical care from people in the disabilities community. I plan on creating a booklet or zine of related art, photography, and primarily your stories to then pass on to the University of Washington's department of disability studies ( http://depts.washington.edu/chdd/ ). It is my hope that by offering your experiences, future medical care providers will have a better understanding of their impact when working with future patients.

Because of the often sensitive nature of these stories, anonymous contributions would be more than welcome. I have set up an account for those who would like to add their stories anonymously. Please see the community for more information. Please also let me know if you have any additional ideas for the direction of this project.

This community is part of a six week project. It is my hope that well after the project itself is completed, the community will continue to be a place of support and sharing



Image Description: Banner with text that reads "A story for change. What is your story?" With the image of the disabled parking logo in yellow on black pavement with the word "Change" writen underneath. Beside the symbol is an open book with the text over it that reads "A community project for positive medical care."

11:36 am - Press Release: RICHARD HANNEMANN DEBUTS ALBUM "THE MUSICIAN"

randomeep
     Richard Hannemann, singer/songwriter, guitarist/composer, is pleased to announce the availability of his debut album, "The Musician", on his website www.HannemannMusic.com

     There are several elements to the unique listening experience of the album. It is not of a single genre throughout: there are 8 song tracks of a folk/country/standards blend and 4 solo guitar tracks of a classical/light jazz/blues nature. Mr. Hannemann's principle instrument is the classical guitar, which gives a warmer, richer tone than the more standard steel string guitar. His finger-style technique, itself a classical/folk blend, allows for straight-up to intricate accompaniments which create an internal rhythm for the songs and allows for solo instrumental bridges within the songs. The lyric songs add a 12 string guitar for foundation, and mandolin, melodica, and bass (as needed) as color polyphony to the vocal line. Mr. Hannemann plays all instruments. Then there are the narrative segues placed between the principle song tracks. Each narrative is accompanied by either the classical guitar, the 12 string, or the mandolin and, combined, we hear the story of a semi - retired musician advising a youngster just starting out on a life in music.

     Many guitarists in the internet community may remember Mr. Hannemann from the old AOL GTRSIG as amadeus555, where he authored a series of guitar lessons. Those Lessons are also available in book form.

     To audition and/or order The Musician, please visit Mr. Hannemann's site, www.HannemannMusic.com .

11:46 am - Hi, I just joined.
silent_cries_4 This community seems really neato. I'm always joining the SI groups and stuff. But, I never saw anything for the fallen. It just seems so perfect! ^_^
I'll introduce myself now. I'm 16 years old. I am bisexual. Also, I am a self-injurer. I have social anxiety. And, I'm now in homeschool because of it. A lot of people don't understand me, so they cast me aside because I'm weird, stupid, nasty, etc... It's very hurtful. I've been betrayed, lied to, molested, and hurt deeply. I am afraid to trust people now. There are very few who have my trust. And, I hope to atleast find people here who know what this is like...people who understand, someone I can relate to and talk to. I'm very hopefull that I will. ^_^

current mood: hopeful

burningveil Hello,

My name is Belinda.. I just got to this place.. and yea.

I'm not sure what I'm supposed to say..

Um, all I can say is I'm not preppy, I have my posh and hyper moments
We all do.. but I wouldn't refer myself as "goth", "punk", "emo". or anything like that.. Though I am labeled under those categories by fags.

I consider my self a tomboy. I was a tomboy when younger, I'm a tomboy now, and I will always be a tomboy. Though I do have my girly moments. Fucking hormones.

Well, I bid thee a farewell and hope that I'm accepted. -bows-

Well seeing as no one has posted much I guess I will. So last weekend I gave a wonderful boy my number, and although my Magic Eight Ball said he would be calling sometime soon, alas, he has not and he pretty much made me feel like crap.

11:41 pm - Pain And Hate

lostone_xyla
Pain is hate, and hate is pain.
So if we choose not to hate, we still will have pain bc othrs will hate.
But, it will never work, fore we can never stop hating. For one thing, we hate the pain.

Well, this is just a great fun week for me isn't it? My good friend whom I have pretty much been in love with since 6th grade loves my friend Amie. He confuses me so much, he used to always tell me how much he likes me and how pretty I am but now I was just told this. I know I shouldn't care, but I do. High school is great.

Hello, I doubt this will be posted, but it's worth a try.  My name is Shannon and I'm 16 years old.  I suffer from depression and am currently taking medication which is working pretty well.  However, I still feel dissaticefied with my life.  I feel as if I have no true talent.  I used to be good at sports, but last year I was anorexic and lost all my muscle mass, leaving me weak and uncapable of playing the game.  I just tried out for a play.  Guess what!  I didn't make it, but conviently enough, my 3 close friends (actually I really only like 1) all made it.  Now they have another "in" discluding me.  One of the girls is Rachel.  We used to be best friends (in 2nd grade) but now I can't stand her.  She beats me at everything it seems and she knows it and flaunts it.  She has all the beauty, all the talent, and the support of the people.  We've been competing forever, but now I think I've lost or maybe just given up.  Why is being the best so important to me.  What other people think controls me and makes me unhappy, so why do I let it get to me so much.  I guess that's what these teen years are for.  Well, that's all for now.  I'll try to post a pic, but I doubt it will work.  Feel free to comment!

Hi, I'm new. My name is Amber, I'm 14, single and hating it. All of my friends have a boyfriend and I'm the one that is left out and the one person who I thought actually liked me just told me he doesn't. So at the moment I'm pretty depressed. But otherwise, in school I'm either the person no one notices or the person everyone feels like they have to pick apart everything that person does. I usually don't have a partner for my classes when groups are created and I usually sit alone or with 1 other person at lunch. I do have friends but they are all in the same lunch period so it kinda sucks. True, I'm not the most social person but I'm pretty fun to be around. I just don't understand how the majority of everyone in your high school could dislike you.

9:46 pm - KILL!

lostone_xyla
Right now, I want to kill some one, not something, some ONE!
I just want to take a little tiny object. Like a spoon, and shove it into there heart and watch them die OHHHH!
I just want to, it is not that bad, now…when I do it, that is another issue, or is it haha.
I just want death, death around me, so beautiful and full of innocence, EXCPET that you cannot find innocence anywhere anymore.
The ones that you Can kill are too UN pure, I want to kill MANY of those.
So many thoughts and ideas and DREAMS! WHY? Why must they live and surround me with their stupid ness? I ask this for an answer that I shall NEVER receive, AHHH
I want death and destruction, the falling of the tower, the brim stone grave, the pain to be more, the glass to be sharper, and the nails to be beaten in harder.
WHY?????????????
Why all of this now?
I just want to kill!
I want to drive in the nails on the cross, I want to drive the stakes on through, I want to pull the switch, to pull the trigger, to make the mark with my knife, to cut, to slaughter, to massacre, just to kill, that is all.
WHY can I not do so? OH the pain in having to wait, or not, or try but be caught. But what if I am not caught? Then I shall be fine, and then, no, I don’t know, I just want death and that is all.
So sore, so sore of this sorrow of pain that people bring with them, that they try to confront me with.
Do they not see that I do NOT care at all? I just want it to stop, and if the only way to have them stop is for them to die, then YES! I want that, completely.
Oh…
“Suffer for your mortal causes and drink from your chalices of gold, hear the whispers of the young, and the truths of all the olds. Break the night with screams of terror, tell your story on your stone, let your life unravel your hatred, take your life to leave me ALONE!”
Death be Always the way!

1:56 am - Pictures

lostone_xyla
WOW, old pictures really do something to me.
Every time that I look at old pics I get nauseated and that is bc of the soul in that pic. NO pics don’t capture your soul, hehe, BUT they do have a part of that person on them, the feel of them, ESPECIALLY if they are dead.
And in a lot of these photos a lot of the people were so…. AND some were objects that they had touched, like one was a letter so...
Anyways, I can just get that feeling from pictures obviously.
While I was looking through the pictures I realized that I had spirits when I was young as well as now, the same ones? Probably a couple, but still 
In some pictures they were EVERYWHERE, some they were not in, and some they were. I also know that I was picked out to be Pagan A LONG time ago, hehehe.
I work in a photo lab and I love going through pics and saying, “Yep, that kid has a spirit guarding them.” So I see it and know what it is where other people would say that it is messed up and all so…
But anyways, pictures. The souls that follow them and the people that KNOW what they REALLY are

8:27 pm - When Was It Welcomed?

lostone_xyla
So here I am again, the exact spot that it all went down.
To where my heart was opened, stuffed with false beliefs, and then abandoned.
I came back to this spot, to see if I can close it up.
I don’t care who stays that it is better to have an opened heart, and wait for love. Because, by far, it is better not to.
I come back here to close the door that was opened. The door that was never supposed to be opened.
I look back and see just how good it was when it was black and I was cold.
And when it was cracked, it was okay. Not what I wanted, but okay.
Now the door has been opened, for some gods’ unforeseen reason. And this semester, this fucking semester, the people, the feelings, the weakness, I have been tainted.
After Christopher I was fine. I had some experiments. Most sour, but that was okay, I dealt with it. None ate me up inside or outside.
And now, here, this time, with these people, I have been tainted.
I have no sanctuary.
Each time that I try to freeze back that door, they tell me “No! Don’t do that. You need it.” Like hell I do.
I don’t, sure they might, but not me.
I have never needed it, I was fine the way that I was, with no emotions.
I liked that life, I welcomed that life, and I have remorse for it being gone.
For what, oh what did I do to deserve this? To make my purely happy life leave.
I wasn’t meant for emotions, I have no heart. The little that I have left I’m trying to drain. And I do mean little.
I have no heart, no lungs, no soul, nothing to be called human.
Fore I am not, I am a walking protector, fore that is all I am, or was supposed to be.
Who dared open that door? Who dared go inside? Who dares to see me be something else?
Fore that is what I am not! I just am not, I never was. Check my past lives, I never have been.
I was never supposed to.
I sit here and I rethink all that happened here, I don’t feel anything. It was nice, but that was all.
Fore it was not love, but a fling.
I have never loved, not even my family. I have just protected them.
That is what I do, my job, my journey.
The only reason that I am here.
