In process is a directory-diary of health-medical & related DK groups, giving diary-list links, meeting schedules, and descriptions quoting the profile of each group listed. The purpose is to help kosaks in these groups find each other, help kosaks who don't know our groups to find the ones they need, and for interaction among our groups for mutual benefit. The safe-place groups have been sent kosmails asking their leaderships' permission (one admin or 2 editors) for inclusion in the directory. When replies have come in, the diary will then be scheduled for publication at KosAbility, and all groups contacted will be kosmailed the date. Groups can be very difficult to search/find by particular interest --such as health/medical-related-- so groups of that kind that want to be more widely known please coordinate with your administrators and ask them to get in touch with mettle fatigue. The directory will be continually maintained after publication, so existing groups not listed and groups formed later can be added, and corrections/clarifications made, based on information by kosmail to mettle fatigue.
Kosmail to Postmodernista if you're working on a diary you'd like added to the schedule. Diaries can be one paragraph, or two, or twenty. Whatever matters to you matters to all of us.
|KosAbility is a Sunday 4pm(Pacific time) community series by volunteer diarists, as a gathering for people living with disabilities, who love someone with a disability, or who want to know more about the issues. Our use of "disability" includes temporary as well as permanent conditions, from small, gnawing problems to major, life-threatening health/medical problems. Our use of "love someone" extends to beloved members of other species.
Our discussions are open threads in the context of this community. Feel free to comment on the diary topic, ask questions of the diarist or generally to everyone, share something you've learned, tell bad jokes, post photos, or rage about your situation. Our only rule is to be kind; trolls will be spayed or neutered. If you are interested in contributing a diary, contact series coordinator postmodernista.
