I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Those with Developmental/Intellectual Disabilities have Human Rights Too

I got news about a training seminar that sounds great. Hopefully I will be able to make it to a session. The sessions are offered in many places in GA-go here to find out if there's one near you.

The Division of Developmental Disabilities and the Delmarva Georgia Quality Management System is pleased to announce a special training session dedicated to individuals, guardians and their families as well as direct support staff. The session is titled "Understanding and Protecting Your Human Rights" and the purpose of the training is to learn about human rights for all people in a fun and interactive atmosphere.

Participants will also learn about specific rights for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities who are receiving waiver and state funded services. The intent is for participants to not only learn more about human rights and responsibilities but also learn how to make a complaint if a person’s rights are not being respected.

This is a perfect opportunity for direct support staff and individuals to enjoy a 3 hour training together having FUN while learning!

Please visit the GQMS website for additional details:
