If you are the blog of a DID system or system member and could like or reblog this, I would greatly appreciate it.


I would like to follow more blogs and Alec believes doing this will make it easier to do so.

Tonight I co-taught and ASL class for work with a certified interpreter. It was AMAZING. Goodness I had so much fun.  My hands cooperated and Hadley was able to be co-con with me for the majority of the class.  I have two more nights of teaching and I am going to enjoy them.  I love educating people about the Deaf community, especially the Deafblind sub-culture right here in NJ.

PSA for TV’s ‘Graceland’ on USA


Just a warning to those who watch ‘Graceland’ on USA. It is a fantastic show and it’s now well into the second season. If you have sensitivities or are triggered by human trafficking, physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse and assault be careful watching this season.  The most recent episodes are especially graphic and potentially triggering.

Stay safe <3
