I am on SSI and Disability, for those who knows what that means. I was looking for any feedback that might be had on the topic of advocating for disability rights. I know some of my posts m'y seem a little strange, but this one I right(write) in fairly short order.

Another thing I want to clarify. You can backslide easily. All the way back to your infant self. Eckhart Tolle seems to stress this point.

That's it's own thing.
