Detox

Reason for detox is I ended up with a multiple of bacterial infections in my body after major surgery. I fear getting sick repeatedly and hospital visits. People say, “Have faith” or “You will get through this.” I have been through misery for 6 months now and it doesn’t seem to end with that said I will be doing an Oxy cleans. The cleanse will kill all Candida and anaerobic bacteria from surgery. It can keep resurfacing inside my body and become resistant to antibiotics.I mentally having to prep my mind around a major detox I am doing.  I keep telling myself if I can make it through the major surgery and everything I have been through I can do this.

First day on detox. Take on empty stomach, then wait three hours no food at all after three hours. Take a liquid Oxy and wait 30 minutes to eat. Repeats process three hours later around dinnertime or, before bed on empty stomach.

  • Finished Pilates Machine workout and had a yummy kale, grapefruit and pine nut salad.

Trying to get well

August 28, 2015

I have to thank all my friends and family for support.

It has been about six months now and with out getting technical I have had third complications from major surgery. Several bacterial infections at this time.  The hardest months have been through June to present. Not blogging, praying has been hard to do because of my health. What I do know to be true is God is with me. Not being able to workout all of these things have tried my soul.

My Chloe has been a breath of sunshine and stays close to my side while I recover.

If I can be honest the infection frightens me so…..I have nightmares.

Please pray for my healing and that God can use me as a vessel again and not a patient…..Chloe love

Now It Is Stated Regarding Service Animals.

January 19, 2015

Martin Luther King day!

Many people living with hidden disabilities are being discriminated against daily.

“Hiddendisabilities” last post on wordpress.com was a reaction to the first “Dog Walking Area” I shared how all my rights are being denied under Fair Housing. The second message arrived on my door January 15, 2015.  ANIMALS This is not okay under any fair housing where disabled people live. The other concern is under HUD can pets be taken away from seniors?

Discrimination and Denied My Civil Rights!

December 18, 2014

Service dog

I am Chloe and I have an important job!

What would you do if you lost your civil rights?

AAAAA Management Company,

To Whom It May Concern:

CC:  Memo of December 2, 2014

Occupants received a notice on our doors Dec 2nd 2014. Included is a section concerning dogs and their acceptable walking areas?  It states we are NOT ALLOWED to walk our dogs or let them urinate or defecate in any areas accessible to the rest of the tenants. We will be written up if they do so. We must leave the building and curb our dogs on the street to obey the notice, even though there are appropriate areas on the grounds for them to relieve themselves.  Of course tenants should be given warnings if they do not pick up after their dogs.

My service dog and I are allowed equal access under Unrah Act, ADA, and Fair Housing. If I am not allowed access, it means that I am being discriminated against under all three rules that protect people with disabilities and the use of a service dog.

  • The closest exit is the lobby door. When I am unable to walk due to multiple disabilities and getting my service dog outside the lobby door is most accessible.
  • When in serious pain or illness, I am in PJ’s and because of this memo; I would be exposed to public view and thus be humiliated. I comply with going out the front of building when I feel healthy and safe.
  • I have lived in HUD housing for 8 years give or take. The letter states that past managers and management did not allow dogs around the property. TTTTT management and all managers have allowed me the enjoyment of the property with my service dog by my side whether for enjoyment or if I needed to get to closest exit for my service dog.
  • After signs, NO PETS had been put up I was still able to enjoy the back sitting area’s on the bench’s, because my service dog is not a pet. No pets are allowed in rec room and, yet I am allowed with my service dog. What is the difference between sitting in the back of building 1 and the rec room?
  • If I couldn’t walk for one day due to my disability, management accommodated me by letting my service dog out quickly in the courtyard so that my service dog could go potty.
  • This means all other tenants can go in back of building 1 and I cannot with my service dog.

I am grateful for where I live and do everything I can to follow rules.

The following:

                                          ADA AND UNRUH ACT

The Unruh Act was made up to protect our civil rights by limiting discrimination due to age, color, sex or being disabled. Access in areas of public places, education, employment, public transportation, housing and much more.  The ADA is defined as The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and gives federal civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities similar to those provided to individuals based on race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.  It guarantees equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment, transportation, housing and state and local government services and telecommunications.

FEDERAL LAW

The ADA prohibits discrimination against disable people.

No individual shall be discriminated against on the basis of disability in the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, or accommodations of anyplace of public accommodation by any person who own… or operates a place of public accommodation.

HUD ISSUES NOTICE ON ASSISTANCE ANIMALS AND REASONABLE ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today issued a Notice reaffirming that housing providers must provide reasonable accommodations to persons with disabilities who require assistance animals.  The “Notice on Service Animals and Assistance Animals for People with Disabilities in Housing and HUD-Funded Programs” discusses how the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) intersect regarding the use of service or assistance animals by persons with disabilities.

The Fair Housing Act prohibits landlords from discriminating based on disability, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, and familial status. The ADA prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications, and state and local government activities.  Both laws contain provisions which address the use of service or assistance animals by people with disabilities.  While the Fair Housing Act covers nearly all types of housing, some types of housing, such as public housing, are covered by both laws.

“The vital importance of assistance animals in reducing barriers, promoting independence, and improving the quality of life for people with disabilities should not be underestimated, particularly in the home,” said John Trasviña, HUD Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity.  “Disability-related complaints, including those that involve assistance animals, are the most common discrimination complaint we receive. This notice will help housing providers better understand and meet their obligation to grant reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities that require assistance animals to fully use and enjoy their housing.”

HUD’s new notice explains housing providers’ obligations under the Fair Housing Act, including the requirement to provide reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities who require assistance animals.  Pet restrictions cannot be used to deny or limit housing to people with disabilities who require the use of an assistance animal because of their disability.  Housing providers must grant reasonable accommodations in such instances, in accordance with the law.    The guidance also describes the Department of Justice’s revised definition of “service animal” under the ADA, as well as housing providers’ obligations when multiple nondiscrimination laws apply.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires equal access for people with disabilities using trained service dogs in public accommodations and government facilities.  Under the Fair Housing Act, housing providers have a further obligation to accommodate people with disabilities who, because of their disability, require trained service dogs or other types of assistance animals to perform tasks, provide emotional support, or alleviate the effects of their disabilities.

HUD’s and the Department of Justice’s Joint Statement on Reasonable Accommodations provides additional information regarding housing providers’ obligations to provide reasonable accommodations.  The Department of Justice has also published a fact sheet on service animals and the ADA.

Persons who believe they have been denied a reasonable accommodation request may file a complaint by contacting HUD’s Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity at (800) 669-9777 (voice) or (800) 927-9275 (TTY). Housing discrimination complaints may also be filed by going to www.hud.gov/fairhousing, or by downloading HUD’s free housing discrimination mobile application, which can be accessed through Apple devices, such as the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Severe Pain suffering

February 18, 2014

I am frustrated when people offer opinions about not agreeing with the use of pain medications and they don’t suffer in pain.  My pain is off the charts. If it wasn’t for my belief in God and pain medication, and the use of service dog I wouldn’t be able to tolerate my life.

 

I am frustrated that people mention holistic health and healers. Please!

 

I still do holist measures in terms of minerals and herbs and chiropractic and have done extreme alternative holistic health care and it left me broke. Some things help.

    

I used to feel guilty about taking pain medication due to those haunting voices I used to say to myself “They could be bad for me” or the voices of others saying “I don’t agree with medications and what they can do to you.” I had no choice when I couldn’t walk for three months at a time. It was death or pain medications. I had to find a way to cope and accept. I realized that God gave us biochemist to design medications to help give us humans comfort to make it through challenging diseases. Most of us on medications wished we didn’t have to take them, but the alternative isn’t pretty.

 

I pray and meditate throughout my day. I hang onto God every second just to get through. When people claim healing through spiritual measures, it just left me feeling more depressed. God made us human and some of us will have to “Endure” health issues. The key is to find acceptance. Finding a way to walk through the suffering by being a blessing to others. Handling it with grace just enough to stand in dignity and tolerance of one’s own reflection.  

 

I hope this makes sense as I am beyond pain.

The best way to help those in chronic pain is to ask “What can I do for you.” Pray for the person to make it through their time in need and give lots of empathy. I have a friend I call when the disease gets this bad and in her matter of fact tone she say “You are powerless just accept it!”
