Lately I have been under some excruciating pain with my leg I had surgery two weeks ago and some days are good and some days are just unbearable. I was able to get some writing done and priorities for my documentary secured. I met a few survivors online that are open for on camera interviews and my best contact was fellow filmmaker, Aishah Shahidah Simmons. I was rented her film online through Vimeo and watched No The Rape Documentary. I was impressed with her scholarly approach to the subject, my documentary differs from hers dramatically but similar with content. I am so excited again about my project it wasn't like I was loosing interest but I got discouraged. Fell into that depression of why am I telling my story again? Finally I am feeling some relief with alternating form cold pack to the heating pad.
The pain has effected my appearance and made my eyes dark like a raccoon. I have to put on make up because it looks so bad. As the nerve in my lower back is taking some time to heal it has been a real test to stay focused. I missed my deadline to upload my application to UB so my application will be uploaded during the holidays.
May the blessingsz from the universe come and assist me in this service to other survivors.
