FB Vent: Running Ragged, Now A Fucking Meltdown, Have To Work Hard To Balance & NOT Burnout | Eve Reiland


I’m just going to vent here. I have been a self-activist for years without being involved with autistic people working together. I’ve done this alone . for years. Taken the hits. For years. Recieved real and actual death threats from very scary fuckingpeople for doing what I do — and had to stay home until I got the story to break national or fucking die in obscurity.

So when people say something about me not including this or thatm, or needing to do this or that in activism: SHUT UP and go do it your fucking self – and then link me. Get up and do something besides complain and nit pick and boohoo shit. I didn’t see you pull of any of the campaigns I’ve run – until you do — your judgement of my work, meh. It’s an opinion. I’m on the front lines taking the hits. Working to bring organizations together to widen already existing avenues for lifetime supports.

I’ve put in weeks and weeks of learning to be an advocate, how to share my mental illness and living as an autistic story to over 1000 police officers in the last two years, met with senators and representatives and told them abouy Autistics and the intesection of mental illness, I’ve gone to bat in my community in big personal efforts to fight inhumanity – and have faced off over 500 people in an auditorium who hated my existence for wanting help in hospital form for mental illness in their town. I have withstood being spit on and called a crazy bitch be strangers for sitting on a bus bench, being myself. Yes, very much ill with ptsd at the time.

I’ve surived abandonment, survived abuse, survived rape and so much fucking more while in this activism. I have gone from walking to needing a wheelchair in the last six months.

I have about 3 seizures a day.

I need help wiping my ass and taking a shower.

Don’t fucking tell me I need to do more, I’m not doing it right, or bitch about the particulars and how you think it might be better — or you don’t “think is should be this way” – take that and shove it.

And then get off your ass and do some activism work and take on the risks. u ntil then, go read a fyucking book
