Eveybody is entitled to rights. It doesn't matter whether you're straight or you're gay. Black or white, male or female. It doesn't matter if you're old or you're young. It shouldn't matter if you're disabled or not. But it does In my opinion (not that that counts for very much either) you're discriminated against if you're disabled. I was banned from eating toast. I wouldn't mind but I'd been eating it for 3 years at the time so i thought "hey, this is wrong" and decided to appeal the verdict. I won, so the result was that it was overturned. The same thing happened with baked beans.....and toasties....and pastry....and cheesecake.....and wotsits. I am so fed up with the bans that I have decided to take legal action to try and win back my rights. They (SALT) should first prove i can't eat something before banning it. That's all i'm asking for.
i'm still waiting for the case to happen. If i win i won't do things a lot differently. There are certain foods i won't attempt to eat, but there are certain foods i will. I'm not a risk take I know i've missed out on a lot of foods because of the decisions of SALT. They are a terrible organisation who thrive on affecting people's lives. A bit like the SS did in nazi Germany. I'm a grown man and they have made me ill many times. I hate to admit it,. The only reason i'm still here is because of Mandy and Jonny. If i was on my own i wouldn't have cared either way what happened to me.
I know that SALT have a job to do. They don't do it properly is what i'm saying. Enough is enough. it's just a matter of time before they push me too far.
Writing this blog and reading other peoples' blogs has helped me keep my sanity so far, but i feel like it's not enough. Everyday feels like Groundhog Day for me. Nothing has changed and everyday seems exactly like the one before it.
I now know what it's like to be a black man living in America. You'll either be in death row in prison or you'll have a cop using you for target practise. That's if six of them haven't strangled you already. I'm being punished as it is. The last thing i need is a bunch of smart arses telling me what they THINK i should be eating. Do you know what i think? Maybe you should try a few days in MY shoes! That's if you have what it takes.. i very much doubt that you do.
