Yesterday a dear friend made a comment "it's been two years, you're gonna have to stop mentioning it soon". Then laughed and I quickly reminded her it's been 2.5 years since my #brain #surgery & I still struggle daily with #invisibledisabilities to just appear "normal" and keep up. I still spend at least 1 day a week on machines for infusions. I still take naps in my car because I don't have enough brain power to drive at times. I still get confused at times in board meetings when more than one person starts to speak. I still have #panicattacks from just daily activities like walking down a flight of stairs or driving over a bridge, things I never experienced before my surgery. I still get dizzy out of nowhere and never know when it is coming or for how long. I still write words backwards and mispronounce things, which often causes me to limit my vocabulary as I work on my speech. Oh so excuse me as I remind people daily of those impacted in our unbothered society by invisible disabilities. - Ms. V #mayisbraintumorawarenessmonth #mayisbraincancerawarenessmonth #recovery #rehabilitation #mentalhealth #massincarceration #reentry #reentrycoach #servingmypurpose #socialjusticeactivist #communityorganizer #disabled #nyulangone #visionaryv #bksamirah #dontpolicemyspeech #minister #reikipractitioner #wellness #lifecoach #wellnesscoach

I didn't come this far in my #recovery to ever allow any comrade, colleague, friend nor foe to stress me out. People will abuse and use you if you let them. I have decided to no longer put others first, my health, mindset and sanity matters. - Ms. V #graymatters #brainsurgerysurvivor #consultant #coach #socialjusticeactivist #glowup #mentalhealth #ididnotsurvivebrainsurgerytoliveamediocrelife #visionaryv

Stop hiding behind organized #religion and teaching our youth that cowardly bs of turn the other cheek. Now ask yourselves why #slaves would be slaughtered for teaching others anything outside of Christianity and their idea of being Christian was being “a good slave” a servant who never questioned “GOD” and accepted their #oppression as “God’s will”. #whotaughtyoutohateyourselves not support or protect yourselves? #whitesupremacy that’s who. Who taught you to ignore the teachings of our #ancestors and to allow their warrior spirits to die? I’m not saying throw your choice of discipline over your life away but I highly suggest that you never allow organized religious books be your only book nor historical reference. Rise up great #nation are we going to defend our ancestors legacy’s or just fake it? #educateandorganize - Ms. V #minister #reikipractitioner #brainsurgerysurvivor #spiritual #visionary #goddess #visionaryv #spirituality
