Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and being an "Adult Baby"...#248

It is New Year's Eve.
For myself and my younger non-disabled brother it is a quiet one.
I will stay up until 1:00 AM.
On my old 27" analog television, I am watching the last 6 episodes of Season #1 of the Japanese Anime Series, "Full Metal Alchemist".
Earlier in the day, I did a couple of important house chores, washing dishes and cleaning out my pet guinea pig friend Ernie's cage.
I also washed a bunch of my re-usable hospital bed pads for incontinence.
I certainly can not be a baby all the time with all my responsibilities.
Not much else to report.
But, I am worried about a new friend of mine in the local area Cerebral Palsy disability community. She is "not free", and lives in a Nursing Home in South Boston, MA.
She ended up in a nursing home after becoming homeless.
She lost her apartment, due to her rent being jacked-up beyond her ability to pay by her former landlord.
All her personal belongings are in storage, which sucks.
Cruel nasty bastard who hated disabled people.
Yes, she uses a power wheelchair for mobility.
Yes, she wears diapers 24/7, along with a plastic bag for making poo-poo into.
I met her through my Aspie friend, DL, who lives in Boston.
Like it or not, there is a lot of discrimination perpetrated against us persons with disabilities.
The only way we can fight it is by banding together to push back against it.
