New bloggy things!

Hey all,

I would like to direct your attention to a brand new blog project cooked up by me and my friend Kyle.  No worries, I'll still be posting on Butterfly Dreams, but I'll ALSO be posting over there on Palsy Snark.  It's similar to this blog, except each post deals with a specific issue and has both of us awesome palsy people commenting on it.  Sometimes we agree, sometimes we don't, but it's always interesting.  So go over to and follow us!  We have a lot to say.

Also, I'm going to insert a shameless plug for a friend here.  My friend Dani has been the best friend I've made in college, and she has a collection of diagnoses that even took ME aback for a bit.  She recently started a blog at my urging and so far she's doing great!  So go on over to Defying Disabilities and check her out!  Follow her!  She has a lot of opinions, some of which clash with mine, but hey, debate makes life interesting!

Watch this space for the theme for the June Disability Blog Carnival, hosted by yours truly!

Love the idea of Palsy Snark.

I remember that Erika had her personal blog, and also a general mental health blog which answered questions from the general populace and others interested. It had a catchy title like "Palsy Snark".

Glad you found your "twin".

I never thought about the struggles that a student who has a physical disability and is in college faced with self-care. I guess I never thought about it, because, well, I don't have a physical disability. You reallytaught me a few things!

I do have to say that with my reproductive health disorder and vision impairment I, as well, face challenges in self-care which as "Will I have enought money to pay for my GYN appt and my medicine?" and "Uggg...I have to go downtown to get things from the dollar store/ CVS and I have to use my cane. How am I gonna get all of this back to campus?" I guess, the moral of the story is, is that students with all types of disabilities face self-care issues when they go to college.
