How to help millions of disabled Americans
The SSI Restoration Act of 2021 is currently proposed to congress. We have until 2023 to get it passed (this post is dated March 30, 2022). SSI is a type of disability payment for disabled Americans. The bill will increase the SSI payment to the poverty level. Right now the maximum payment is 9528$ a year. It will allow disabled people on SSI to marry and not lose their income which they cannot do currently. Disabled Americans do not have marriage equality currently. It will increase the asset and income caps for SSI among other improvements.
Friends and I made a website that has all of this info plus a really easy way to send an email to your state reps. If you click the link below, you can send a letter of support for the SSI Restoration Act to your state reps. It鈥檚 already written and takes only a few minutes. Seriously it is ridiculously easy. These emails have more pull to reps than resistbot so please fill out if you can!
With our letter campaign, people have sent over 5,000 letters to representatives! We've decided to make a new campaign with updated information to send to reps. So if you have already sent one through fixssi.com, you can send another! And if you haven't please take the time to do so!
We also have a Facebook called "Campaign to Fix SSI" that you can follow for regular updates as well.
And if you are able to call state reps (which has the most influence) our website has a call script and lists of your reps phone numbers. Please follow the link below for that.
Please send a letter to your reps and boost! It could change the lives of millions of disabled Americans.

Yesterday my boyfriend told me "you're not any less of a person just because you can do less things" and I wanted to pass that reminder on to other physically and mentally ill/disabled people who might need to hear it.

you are not the exception to your rules and reasonings. no baseless buts or iffy ifs, okay? you are equally deserving of all your leniency and patience and love and kindness as the people you give them to on a daily basis. you're not unique in that sense; in your humanity and inherent worth and value. treat others the way you want to be treated, yes, but in turn treat yourself the way you treat others

What's the point? Why bother?
Because it sets your soul on fire
Because you love the topic/subject
Because you enjoy it
Because it makes you feel something
Because it gives you a goal
Because it gives you a purpose
Because you dream of it
Because you hope for it
Because you think of it a lot
Because you want to
Because maybe, maybe you can make a difference
Because why not?
Because it matters to you

Even if you are exhausted, try talking to a friend. Tell them you are struggling, talk about something light and funny, maybe a favorite movie, series, or talk about the good times you had together. They might lift your mood, and even make you feel more energetic. Friends are relationships you should invest on as much as your romantic ones. Even if just for a few minutes, reach out to a friend. Laugh a little. You should feel loved not only romantically but as a friend too.

Don't self-isolate because you feel too awkward, anxious or afraid that you will bother others. You deserve to have friends and to be loved. Don't give up on being social, no matter how nerve wrecking it might get, with practice it will get easier to socialize.

Your best is what you can do without harming your mental and physical health, not what you can accomplish when you disregard it.

shout out to everyone who鈥檚 disabled or chronically/mentally i鈥檒l and has to do stuff even if you鈥檙e out of spoons. as much as i wish we could say no when we鈥檙e asked to do tasks that will take too much out of us, sadly our society doesn鈥檛 work that way. if you鈥檙e running on low/no spoons and still working, you鈥檙e an absolute badass. even if you鈥檙e doing something people find 鈥渆asy鈥 like the dishwasher. any amount of strength you put in makes you a badass. i wish you rest and more spoons soon!

your bare minimum isn鈥檛 actually that bare or minimum. my dad once told me that there鈥檚 nothing in this world that鈥檚 easy and that鈥檚 true tbh. everything we do takes energy, time, and effort. even the little things. if you feel like you鈥檙e not doing enough please try to think about your circumstances and what鈥檚 currently available to you: chances are, there鈥檚 something that鈥檚 diverting or otherwise draining you. and to pull away from that and get something done regardless? well, i think that鈥檚 really admirable! please try to take pride in the things you do accomplish in a day, no matter how small or trifling you perceive them to be. you can鈥檛 be proud of your growth if you don鈥檛 notice where you already are!

Simple but when you lift people up in their joy and success you are also uplifted. When I say I鈥檓 happy for you it鈥檚 not dead weight鈥 I鈥檓 really feeling your happiness and my own and it鈥檚 expanding because joy is meant to be shared! Joy is a large energy and the more it鈥檚 fed the more it reaches, you know!

If I do something good because it makes me feel like a good person, is that technically selfish?
no, only if you鈥檙e choosing to make others suffer to make yourself feel good
enjoying making other people happy is a great thing
