Seeking Help: For the past 2.5 months, my family has been fighting our school district against its discrimination of my son. He’s autistic with combined ADHD and they’ve failed him and punished him for things beyond his control. He’s currently on home instruction because they refuse to allow him to attend school in-person.

We’re working with a special education advocate who is filing an emergent petition on Monday to get my son the help he needs, but his costs have grown due to the growing mountain of evidence he keeps uncovering. We’re already out $14,000 with another $5,000 due at the end of all this.

If you have $3 and want to help, I’d greatly appreciate it if you bought one of my books (or spend $6 and get both):

If you can’t afford that right now, please boost this message any way you can. I’m @hcmarks@dotgr.id over on Mastodon and I have a similar post over there you can boost as well.

And I have a ko-fi (ko-fi.com/hcmarks) where you can donate a few dollars toward the cause if you so choose.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and thank you for your support. Hoping to put this whole thing behind us soon and get my son back in school with the supports he needs.

Dove into time blocking whole hog last night. Set up a daily schedule from 4am-11am every morning to try and maximize my output early in the day so I can take care of other things later on. First day went ok - a little behind schedule, but not terrible.

My big mistake was in setting aside a half an hour for exercise. I am not a person who exercises. I felt as though Death’s icy grip was clutching my heart for about an hour after I’d finished my kettlebell workout.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
