Textling #90

“The demise of my ability to read extensively is one of my greatest losses. I try, but pages petrify. A few paragraphs must do me now; some days a couple of lines. It’s an issue many #pwme wrestle with, and contributes to our sense of separation.”

So begins a short article I wrote for #MEAction last week. I produced an audio-version as well and have decided to start recording my textlings to make them more accessible. I write as much for the ear as the eye, and have longed to make my scribbling useful. Advocacy (with a small ‘a’), and good practice for my voice (when able) as I don’t have much occasion for speech.

READING MATTERS. LET’S HEAR IT!

  1. Thank you! Can manage as my textlings are only ever a couple of paragraphs long. Quite enjoyed recording actually, esp. as I’ve got my speaking voice back (on better days) after two really bad years. Will update my blog slowly (did the last five).
