Hey @Tiny_leaf I'm sorry to hear that you've had such a tough night, it's unfair that your brother was rude to you about your art.
Maybe you could share your piece on the forum? I'm sure the community would love to see your work! And it might be nice to hear some positive feedback from people who support you 😊
So um.. pretty big trigger warning here for medical neglect and ableism...
But recently in the US a hospital refused to treat or even feed a disabled guy because they said he wasn't worth the effort. They let him die because he was disabled.
And like.. it made me wonder if that would ever happen to me.
And then I remembered my recent hospital trip where no one cared when I said my life was at risk, everyone gave up taking my vital signs when they did everyone else's, they decided not to do the apparently required tests that they must do for everyone who comes in, and discharged me without a safety or treatment plan.
They focused more on my disabilities than what I was in there for.
And now I can't stop wondering if they were happy to let me die because of it.
