I have now set up two separate blogs for my two personal campaigns. Once I start getting more money from this blog I can look at upgrading the blog accounts so that they can hopefully make some money on their own.
I know it is a big task maintaining 3 blogs but you know what, I am up for the challenge. I hope you all follow my other two blogs which you can get the links off of my various pages.
I am planning to extend my campaigns and get some more ideas of what people would like to see. If you would like to see more on disability awareness or my Thank You campaign including the weekly newsletter I will be sending out please sign up on the below link.

Obviously, we all know the biggest outfit in Uniform is the Armed Forces. This is why I have written a letter to the Acting Secretary for Defense in the US to ask for his help and guidance in what I am doing. I need help to know how and where to send my letters to. People who serve in Uniform deserve our respect and admiration for what they do and this is my way of sharing that.
Being Autistic is something I am still learning about. I have triggers and sometimes I know how to deal with them and sometimes I don’t. My biggest one at the moment is one particular tube station in London. It is HUGE for me. There are so many different escalators just to get off the platform that I get overwhelmed and get lost. I have had to use this station 3 times in the last few weeks and every time I get lost in a new way :S
But my thank you goes out to the Metropolitan Police and the City of London Police as I don’t know which police officers I met or which one they were from. Every time I have gotten overwhelmed and lost I always seem to manage to find me a Police officer with a service dog. The two-legged officer gives me directions that I can understand and the four-legged officer gives me love and affection in a lick of letting me pet them that I feel able to get off of the ledge of full meltdown and find my way to where I need to go.
So to all of the two legged and four legged officers in the Metropolitan Police and City of London Police #ThankYouForYourService and thank you for helping this Autistic Woman out. Your officers won’t of known I was Autistic, but it made a BIG impression on me and I am super thankful for that as it helped me avoid a meltdown which would have made me feel very embarrassed when it passed.
Thank You is only two words that dont take much effort to say and yet, those who wear a uniform rarely hear it from people. Why is that?
These are people who put their lives on the line for us on a regular basis and yet we can not say thank you to them for doing so. This to me is something that is unacceptable.
So to all those in uniform I say #ThankYou as well as #ThankYouForYourService
There are some people out there who believe this, I am not one of them. They believe that just because a man or woman signs up to serve their country, city or community in uniform that they should be accepting the fact that they may get abused or attacked in the course of their duties. This is something that is not the case. This is something that I firmly disagree with strongly. The only exception I find to this is when a military person who goes into war. Death and danger is something that is part of what you see.
If you see a paramedic and get punched in the face when you are trying to help someone that you have not signed up for. The same goes for every other member of the uniformed services. Show some respect the next time you see someone in uniform and say #Thankyouforyourservice.
Today I am going to talk about hopelessness. This is something that I am feeling at the moment. I live in an abusive household and the thing that is holding me back honestly is the lack of cash. I have tried raising money through gofundme to help me get what I need to continue with my Thank You Campaign as well as finding somewhere to live but never get anywhere. I am now at a stage where I have just given up. I just have to accept that I am not going to be the person who gets out of their bad situation. I just have a sheer sense of hopelessness and apathy now.
Unless I get a HUGE random act of kindness in the form of money or win the lottery I am resigned to my lot in life..
