I traveled to Milwaukee for a weekend for a friend’s bachelorette/girls’ night. I stayed for a night and went back to Chicago the next day. On the way back, I took an Uber to the Amtrak station in Milwaukee and learned that my driver has at least two grandchildren with autism and the others, his family is not sure if they’re on the spectrum. 250 more words

Where's the Support for the Supporters?!?!

There’s an old friend from school who I follow on Facebook. Back in high school I used to listen to him bemoan how a certain girl didn’t think of him as more than a friend while he put up with me whining about how the young man of my dreams was gay (so, basically the same thing). 643 more words


I'm f.i.n.e.

Every day at least one person asks me “How are you feeling?” I try to be honest but eventually it’s tiring. It sucks a piece of my soul to not be able to give the generic answer of “I’m fine.” I don’t even remember what “fine” feels like anymore. 610 more words

Unity in Community
