As most of you know, I'm a very introverted person. I don't like being in big groups, I really do t like speaking in big groups. Back in October I signed up to be a part of a focus group with the Government of B.C. as they were looking for input on new accessibility legislation they're wanting to bring forth. Accessibility has to do with how well the province is doing in terms log looking after those with disabilities. As my journey into Chronic Illness has led me on, I've come to meet many fellow warriors who are way worse off than I am and yet because of the nature of chronic illness, they can't access any help for those with disabilities and yet they're more disabled than some who are in the program.
I wasn't going to go, After my blood tests I was going to just drive home, but decided I should just suck it up and go. I was late because I couldn't find parking and then when I almost found a spot, I had to dial the police because some guy was riding his bike with 2 gas cans and walking amongst the vehicles parked on a dark street. Dealt with that, found other parking and got to the meeting as opening ceremonies began. Afterwards the kind lady at the door took me in and around a corner into a little room with about 10 people around a table. Sitting at the table was a doctor who specializes in helping those with disabilities find out where their limits are, how much they can do and how much they can't do. After an hour of discussions, I needed to head out and she slipped me a note saying she'd like to see me and do an assessment, I'd just need a referral. Call it fate, luck, or as I prefer, divine appointments, but I was meant to go to that focus group and meet this doctor. The referral was sent in last week, so hopefully hear something soon!
About the image: the entire Orion complex. Data I took back in October. I dedicated to try and rework it in preparation of a shot I have planned and can hopefully get on Thursday. I should get way more detail if I get to do this again, but I am impressed with this shot too.
