I am a survivor.
The tribe rejected me soon after I was born and I was put into St. Nicholas Hospital , an institution for people with severe disabilities. I lived there until I was eighteen. Then I won a court case and was able to leave.
Within our lifetime, children were starved to death in a building a short walk from Parliament House.
I have worked all my life trying to remember what happened in St. Nicholas in sufficient detail to convince others of its truth, and trying to ensure that it never happens to anybody else.

Terrible Triple C, another one of
the ways in which professionals bastardize people with disability.

use it as often as you can, and the hell with repetition.
