    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    One thing that has helped me with this lockdown as tick-tock I tried the Post helpful videos about people with disabilities and maybe some General Life hacks along the way. I feel better because I am putting it out positive energy, as well as giving myself a project. I do have a YouTube channel called Yvonne Knight. However, those videos are a little more involved because of the editing process. Tick tock already has special effects and editing features built into the app. The features are pretty straightforward, even if you have no editing experience once so ever. I feel like making videos is its more comfortable way to express myself. Sometimes making videos is more relaxed than writing an article. YouTube, in particular, I can decide how long the video is going to be and how extensive the video edited Will be. When you write an article, you are writing to fit somebody else’s criteria. I like that YouTube and tick-tock give me more creative control over my work. I think in these times of separation, we need to find a creative outlet to express ourselves outward. We need to feel we are connecting to one another in some way, even though some of us cannot be with the one we physically want to be near.. If you are going to put forth a video on either platform, please consider doing a positive video, because there is too much negativity in the world right now. Please remember it takes a lot of courage to turn on the camera and pour out your creativity to the world. Some people Will is not tick-tock beautiful, but then again, the persons that are calling them ugly do not look much better than they do.

    The Home Healthcare System is Broken

    The Home Healthcare System is Broken

    The personal care Health system is so broken, and sometimes I wonder if it can be fixed. These people coming to your house, and they act like they are doing you a favor, but what caregivers fail to realize it Is they are gaining paid to perform a service. These people are coming whenever they feel like it and leave whatever they want to. It's they did that a typical job they would be fired immediately. As a client, I have to turn everyday people into personal care assistants. Most of the time, I have to direct my care to a stranger I have never met before; we have to learn to each other on the fly. There is this added worry if their personality Will meshes well with mine. I am an avid believer that you know necessarily have don't like the person you are working with if it Is a temporary situation. For example, if somebody is picking up a shift to fill in, then you can put aside the differences to get done with needs to be done. If you are spending a lot of days and hours with one person, then you have to find a personality that can gel with yours. You don't want a staff that treats you like you work for them. Like they can Control everything you do. You don't want somebody that's going to tried to Control your Financial well-being. There are so many things to consider when assessing a personal care aide. There are so many pitfalls to this whole system. You don't want to get too close, because most PCA's don't stick around very long. As you are ready to put down your guard with some of them, it seems those are the ones who are prepared to steal from you.

    We need to keep our distances

    We need to keep our distances

    I am 38 years old with cerebral palsy, and my lungs are underdeveloped, so with the threat of the Coronavirus in the air, the proposition of going outside is a scary one. I am very grateful for the extra food stamps doing this pandemic, but it is tough to use them doing this crisis because you cannot use food stamps online. The fact that food stamps spending has to be in person puts me in the people that worked for me and love me eh higher risk send me home it's a tough position to be in because I have a tiny freezer in the refrigerator, so that means I have to make weekly trips to the store. I feel like every time I step outside doing this pandemic; I am putting my very life have to risk when the answer is to let people use their food stamps online so they can maintain social distancing.

    Child or Not?

    Child or Not?

    I'm sure you have seen the news about Natalia and how there is a big debate about whether she is a teenager or a grown woman. Before I saw The Dr. Phil Show I kept flipping over in my mind; she's a child, not an adult. After watching Dr. Phil, I still keep arguing with myself. I don't understand how a 16-year-old girl could say she's never had a period; that seems a little odd to me. Could any conditions delay puberty by that much? It seemed to me when doctor Phil asked about her previous families, Natalia was maybe willfully holding back specific details. Like when her former foster mother said she couldn't do it anymore after Natalia broke her siblings' arm. It would seem to me that maybe she does have past of aggression, and perhaps that's why she could not make it work with other families. I felt that Natalia looked older than 16 in presenting herself older than 16. Now I know that some teenagers appear to be older than they are because of life experiences. Still, there's usually a personality flaw that tells their age. And I did not see that in Natalia's case, but I am no expert by any means. I think perhaps Natalia's appearance may have hurt her in the long run on The Dr. Phil Show.

    Born to Lose

    Born to Lose

    I was born to lose, No matter what I do, I just can't seem to break loose, From the stupid things I do, Life seems to work against me, Never for me, I feel like I'm dying on the inside, I can’t disguise, How I despise, My life, Feelings like a knife, Feeling cut deep inside, my inadequacy I can’t hide, Is my suffering beautiful to you? Why must I always lose? Is my pain payment for being born? Scorn because still I live? Sworn never to love me? No one does, Love me, I am cold, And alone.
