On Stigma (Ode to the Secretly Neuroqueer) by E.J. (Ibby) Grace

It is a very serious problem that for many people, the heavy and unfair stigma attached to their disabilities forces them to live "in the closet" in order to be safe.

I was just thinking about definitions, and for me, my being neuroqueer means I'm both neurodivergent and deliberately fierce and fabulous about it.  But this way of living was not always within reach for me.

You can be secretly neuroqueer. You can be secretly fierce and fabulous while keeping yourself safe. Be who you are with people you can trust. We are rebuilding the world so that we can all reach a point where we don't have to keep worrying about the very real repercussions of our labels.

If I'm talking to you, and you see yourself in this, love and solidarity. I have your back, and there are many others like me who feel the same way. Please pass this on to others who may be wondering if anyone could ever understand.

  2. Great Mother is Real... I am Aisha Kun and i want to testify about Great Mother how she cured me of hiv aids. I was diagnosed of this disease some time ago and i was worried. when i was searching the internet looking for a cure, i came across some testimonies of Great Mother how she has helped a lot of people and i decided to contact her on her info and explained to her. She laughed and told me that she will help me and i was surprised. She sent me the cure and it was a spiritual holy oil and water which is more than a medicine. She directed me on how to take it and i did. I took the cure for 3 weeks and i went to the doctor for check up and to my greatest surprise the disease was no longer in my system. I am so glad and i want to thank Great Mother for helping me. Contact her now on her website ourgreatmother1.com   and her email is Greatmotherofsolutiontemple1@yahoo.com  you can also reach her on her whatsapp number  +17025514367.
