to figure this out...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Satirical Blog

*(utilizing articles discussing facts)*

By:  Susan MeeLing

After the head injury caused a coma while I learned how to deal with the headaches, migraines, cognitive disorders, memory problems, and other medical conditions I went from College Algebra with Trigonometry & Calculus down to 2nd grade math.  Here is how logic works for someone like me::

~  It took awhile for the doctor's recommendation to use sticky notes, to help remember.

~  It took several months to realize sticky notes moved, let alone to remember to speak with the doctor.

~  After I finally remembered to ask the doctor about the note problem, notebooks were recommended.

~  When I could remember to pick up a notebook, it took a long time to learn similar to sticky notes, notebooks are not always where they were placed.

~  After I was able to organize the notebooks over several months I still had not learned notebooks are not always readily available, at the necessary time.

~  When I remembered to speak with the doctor about the notebook problem the doctor had few other suggestions, to assist memories better.

~  After several events and adding up sticky note and notebook location problems, I realized my skin goes everywhere I do.

~  Wanting my tattoos to only be for me and not for public consumption I started the ink on my legs, able to hide easier.

~  It would not be until many tattoos and several years later I would realize my memory problems were usually not as bad when wearing shorts, capri pants, or a skirt.

~  Between 3-5 years after my first tattoo I had the first tattoo completed on my arms, and my memory has slowly progressed towards an easier memory jolt.

 

 

When I say "it should not take a head injury to figure this out" it is partially in humor from personal experiences, towards understanding.

 

If I can laugh at my mistakes after recognizing and dealing with them, so can you.

 

You have the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I lack in order to put everything together to fix the problems seen with abilities I do not have. 

 

Utilize the information within the blog to find genuine repairs and instead of complaining of the "hurtful" commentary, prevent the issues from reoccurring.

 

Then again, it should not take a head injury to figure that one out.

A Patriotic Halloween in 2020

Today was an interesting day to put such mildly with much which was enjoyable, though because of the fact of driving near the location I took my daughter to after to after the incident in 2010 at the #FortWorthZoo because McCoy Elementary School of #CFBISD refused to complete the necessary requirements for my daughter to be in Special Needs Education in the proper amount of time; it was a bittersweet time, though enjoyable with the many Trump supporters today 31 October 2020.


My daughter should have been put into Tier I Special Needs Education no later than the third time her kindergarten teacher and I both individually and together had made requests throughout the 2008-2009 school year, to the Guidance Counselor Angela Reiter who continued denying my daughter was being bullied as well as denied my daughter needed Special Needs Education. As the Guidance Counselor Angela Reiter ignored my and the kindergarten teachers multiple requests, I then went to speak with the Principal of the school Dawn Rink. She told me 'kids will be kids' though when I asked her about the volunteer adults in the class as well as the Guidance Counselor, the Principal had nothing to say about such. Again I was ignored, as the kindergarten teach was ignored; both doing what was possible to get my daughter the help, she needed. When my daughter was in first grade in Ms. Tamara Hatcher's class the same aspects continued in reference to the denial of my daughter getting the Special Needs Education necessary for the 2009-2010 school year; and again the Guidance Counselor Angela Reiter refused, just as the Principal Dawn Rink refused.


The excuses given to me by both the Guidance Counselor and the Principal over that time had been:

* If my hairstyle was not as it is, my daughter would not be treated as she was.

* If my daughter's father biologically had not been involved with the military for the United States of America and died during the time of, they would treat my daughter and I better.

* If I did not have my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury and the after effects from when I had been involved with the Army branch of the United States of America's Armed Forces, my daughter would be treated better.

* If my tattoos were not visible, then my daughter would be treated better.

* If my daughter did not want to have a similar style haircut to mine, she would be treated better.

* Though the list continues on for the excuses I was given in reference to such, I am certain the list above gives enough of the examples for what the biases were in reference to those individuals. Since the adult volunteers had urged the students in my daughter's class to follow suit as the saying goes monkey see monkey do, the children followed the student's mom who had been involved with the classroom activities; as well as whomever else was involved, in the other kindergarten classes. As I have said many times before putting into writing of any kind, I knew my daughter and I were not the only ones who had ever experienced anything as such; including in reference to the Special Needs Education.


In October 2009, my daughter was put into the Carrollton Farmers Branch Independent School district's therapy sessions; held at the actual CFBISD location, of which by then my daughter should have been put into Tier II for Special Needs Education according to the #TEA #TexasEducationAgency. However when my daughter was first hospitalized because of the continuous bullying against her from the students and adult volunteers, the staff at McCoy Elementary School should have put my daughter into Tier III the highest form of Special Needs Education for such. However she was not evaluated until several months later, even though the Principal Dawn Rink as well as the first grade teacher Tamara Hatcher along with the Guidance Counselor Angela Reiter had went to the Behavioral School the Red Lions or some similar name for at the time; which I paid out of pocket for my daughter to be taken care of, since obviously the staff members at McCoy Elementary School of Carrollton Farmers Branch Independent School District seemingly could not do their job responsibly nor correctly. By the time shortly before the Fort Worth Zoo field trip in April 2010, my daughter was still not evaluated. However there was a meeting which I was informed of the day I was supposed to be in the office for, which I did not know about until the phone call from the Principal Dawn Rink occurred; which had coincided with my neurology appointment which had taken months to be able to get seen for at the end of March 2010; of which by then my daughter had a minimum of 3 acute care hospitalizations at #DentonBehaviouralHealth, because of the bullying occurring at McCoy Elementary School in #Carrollton #Texas.


After the Fort Worth Zoo incident my daughter was re-hospitalized in the #DBH before being sent to #MerridellAchievementCenter in #LibertyHill #Texas, for the maximum amount of time the healthcare had covered at the time of 6 months. After such she was not out of the hospital for longer than 5 weeks of which later she was in #PinnaclePointe in #LittleRock #Arkansas because of none in Texas being able to handle the situation, to then go back and forth to the acute care centers before the hospitalization in #LaurelRidge in #SanAntonio Texas; after a situation at #ThousandOaksElementarySchool and then another situation at Brooke Army Medical Center which lead to Laurel Ridge, of which each of the residential hospitalizations were for the maximum amount of time of 6 months before the healthcare insurance dropped her from my healthcare coverage. Though I asked Tricare if the ability to use her dead father's insurance if I started it up was possible, the healthcare insurance people I spoke with said it was not possible for me to do so as it would be considered to Tricare as insurance fraud for me to to do that if I had. Since I did not there was no that situation, though there still was the situation which keeping both my son and my daughter safe was needed as any good parent would do; whether a Mom and/or Dad, if having both and depending of the housing marital or non-marital situation. In my situation as a single Mom though technically a widow because of not being able to legalize the divorce before the death of my dead-ex-husband, it was only up to me to take care of.


My biological parents had not assisted with the aspects of despite the portions in reference to their claim to move to Texas to help my son, my daughter, and I; though the realistic aspects had been to try to outrun my biological sister's reputation which she could not do refusing to change her own attitude and patterns of behaviour. As my biological mother had been a substitute teacher in multiple schools in New Jersey, Illinois, and Texas over the years; she should have had some idea of a recommendation for who I could speak with about the situations, or at minimum be supportive of through asking people she knew. My biological sister had married into a family from Texas which since to her and my biological mother I was considered an eye-sore and a problem to them, thus my biological sister refused to acknowledge anything which inconvenienced her pretend perceptions she told others of. As some college student I knew in #Austin Texas which I had gotten along with found out in reference to such, they quickly learned what I had told them of how I was treated by my biological family was mild compared to what they found out themselves in 2010; thus my biological family was out of the question by their own choices, in reference to the assistance for my son and my daughter after what occurred to my daughter.


My ex-in-laws were in a different situation, though a similar aspect as the portions of which having been the ex-in-laws there were certain situations which were not agreed upon. As I was told by my ex-sister-in-law Susie Marie Nichols-Lopez 'if that happened to James, then we would be more likely to help since he carries on the family last name'; which infuriated me, as my daughter is just as important. Since my ex-sister-in-law hyphenated her maiden and married last name together in Nichols-Lopez, I was confused how she could say such about my daughter Lidia.


I knew when writing about such earlier when dealing with such back in 2010 through 2013 my son, my daughter, and I were not the only ones who had certain experiences; which hopefully at minimum my son and my daughter know and understand I did everything I could to the best as I could, while also getting information to other parents and guardians to assist in better ways to stop the cycle of such. Hopefully schools and districts saw what occurred and understood while seeing better ways to improve the school system, as well as finding hope. Hopefully military, law enforcement, fire department, and EMS individuals were also able to find more constructive ways to handle the various situations for the betterment as well as to prevent their children/grandchildren from having to go through what my son, my daughter, and I had; admittedly, especially military individuals as that had been a large aspect of the situation as told to me by the staff of McCoy Elementary School of Carrollton Texas. Whereas #Leander and #CeadarPark independent School district had assisted and helped where they could as the San Antonio Independent School District, again I knew my son and my daughter and I were not the only ones who had gone through such. Hopefully those who had dealt with such before, were able to find a calm and aspects to change for the better as well.


Nonetheless in such remembering while going with the group, I still truly enjoyed myself despite the amount of memories flooding back during the drive. Spending time before and after the event was a lot of fun, and in some ways possibly even a bit informative to one particular mom and son. The son wanted to join the costume contest for the patriotic look, which I had also been a part of. However he was upset and almost in tears because of the inability to join because he did not have time to grab his mask, for the costume contest. I told him the others who won had very patriotic outfits which supported the cause, and to look at different aspects for the future from the lessons of. As he had dressed up in some Star something or another costume, I discussed briefly the portions in reference to the aspects of another point to look at in reference not only to the Presidential election which the #TrumpTrain was in regards of, though also a few additional points so he could learn and research more for himself about the United States of America.


First I showed him the nails I had put onto my fingers which are white with blood stains and as earlier in the day when at the earlier rally for the local and state official election banking, I had discussed certain portions in reference to the church I grew up attending which was used as a hospital during the Revolutionary War which still had the blood stains on the pew benches. Though I had not discussed that point with the boy, that was a point for in reference to my nail choice additionally to the fact of the amount of blood along with sweat and tears which bled for the Constitutional Rights and the United States of America. Explaining the portions of which not only military Armed Forces for the country has shed blood for, though also law enforcement, fire department, and EMS individuals; including civilians who took a stand for the right side of justice, for the country. As I had worn a white shirt in my costume outfit resembling the portions not only in reference to the church building itself, though also to the American Flag; while additionally brining up the point of each person has whites in their eyes near and around the color portion whatever color such may be, also referring to the earlier discussion as Old Tennent Presbyterian Church had been painted white for the majority of the exterior and interior during the years I had gone to the church.


To point out the aspect of the blue ocean surrounding the United States of America admittedly, I had forgotten to mention that particular part in reference to the American Flag and my costume; though the oceanic waters are not the only waters within different areas of the land area, of the United States of America as there are many lakes and rivers as well as creeks and quarries most forming from different underground springs. However I did bring up the point in reference to the blue color of blood which flows within each person's veins, just as a river and spring flows through the land or the body in the reference I had pointed out. Getting him to focus to look to see other points and learn from including paying a bit more attention to time as well as details to be prepared always as best as possible, had pretty much been the ending portion before driving off later with the #TrumpTrain in and throughout Liberty Hill. Also in reference to my wings and makeup, there had been several additional points; though admittedly, I did not go into all of the details as there are certain aspects which the particular meanings are easy to understand and know though some a bit more subtle.


There were many individuals in the many cars and trucks, decorated with multiple flags and decorations quite lovely; along with local, state, and federal candidates up for election and/or reelection in the area for the 3 November 2020 election date. If you are registered and have not voted yet in the early voting, make sure to get to the polls as soon as you can and look at what each stands for in their platforms as well as the different bills and proposals for this upcoming election and the future ones if you choose to partake for a knowledgeable and informed decision. I look forward to the meetings tomorrow as well as Monday in reference to federal state officials, including the ability to meet with a few more soon hopefully.


Listening to Congressman Chip Roy explain the amount of money the DNC is putting in ads against him saying "You know when they spend millions of dollars to go against you, you must be doing something right." Of which I can giggle to myself about a few ironies in different aspects, in quite a few ways in reference to my Medal of Honor Art Project which I was able to show some of the work to Congressman Michael McCaul for the ones for Texas and some of his staff members briefly; of which I had dressed up in a suit for the event as it is #Halloween which the costume outfit idea had been for a lawyer proponent for the Constitutional Rights in favor of the United States of America.




The ultimate measure of an individual is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at the time of challenge and controversy.

We must reject the idea that everytime a law is broken society is guity, rather than the law breaker. 

Freedom is never-more than one generation away, from exinction.  We do not pass freedom on through our blood stream because freedom must be fought for, protected, and handed on for the next generation to do the same.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

It should not take a head injury to figure this out, because you are smarter.
