How I Started Volunteering with Resources For Autism
On this day 5 years ago Mervelee Ratty Nembhard is remembering those who are no longer with us.
Daily Express Page 7: Cleese tribute to ‘wonderful’ Sachs – Mr Sachs is said to have died in a London Care Home of Vascular dementia after four years. Now this for me is to go do more Research about the different types of Dementia. It is stated that John Sachs said his father used Manuel’s moustache to hide behind because he did not want to be recognised.
Then I noticed another thing about me, and it is that my spellings are not as good as I once thought it was? For the first time, I noticed how to spell moustache. It is not spelt the way I pronounce it as “mouthstash”. It took me all this time to realise.
I done Dyslexia training for the first time a couple months ago. But I have been aware of the different types of Dyslexia Centers from I was working at King’s College Hospital. So now I am of the opinion after the training that I have more than #1formsofDyslexia namely Dyscalculia, Disorientations & a little Dyspraxia UK thrown in for good measures. As proof of my Dyslexia, I am still to remember where I use the wrong hand to put the Training Certificate.
I guess it will show itself once I am through with the main purpose for my Fight4justice campaign?
I have an interest in this story because of my #Mother and an area of concerns I have re Multigenerational Working Partnerships. Meeting this Elderly Lady in East Street Market have given me much food for thoughts. I must have experience Dementia Friends without knowing from a young age. However, with knowledge comes power and I have to give thanks for the opportunities I have had since living in the UK. I studied with The Open University, and is a force to be reckon with. That’s why I refuse to give LEYF Nurseries & the Establishment the satisfactions of destroying my life. The life that my Mother worked like a Man to see her children make something of our lives.
Mama had Dementia which I diagnosed. I lived her dementia with her even when I was not home, because my Family made sure I had a telephone conversation every weekend without fails with her. But the most poignant memories I have is the time I spent with her during the time I was in Jamaica for my 1 Son Mr Valdin Legister & Naheel Julene Brown Legister wedding.
I helped Mama rediscovered the life she once knew, even if she didn’t remember and recognise her 1 Daughter. Then I went back to bury Mama, came back, got transferred to BIB, LEYF Nurseries, where my life was turned into a living hell.
Therefore LEYF Nurseries & the Establishments must be heal accountable with my Fight4justice campaign. Some are pretending that they were not informed, or that I did not seek their support to stop the Discriminations. But time is the master in all we do?

Let the world be aware of my situation. I don’t need to embellished my Fight4justice campaign against LEYF Nurseries. Since I join Facebook in the Summer of 2009, I have adhere to the Rules of Law and British Ethical Guidelines in every Contract and using my Moral Judgement to make decisions. I have my Defensive Practice to back up my stories. Yet the #EmploymentTribunals affirm the Discrimination and presided over another miscarriage of justice. Do they really believe I’m going to keep quiet or commit suicide to give them ammunition to fuel the RACIST Terrorism by the COWARDLY BIGOTS who are THUGS of the #ModernDaySlaveMasters_Mistresses. No way I will be writing…

For those of U whose BD I’ve missed- Happy belated! & 4 those whom I will surely be missing take a bow on my b1/2 on the day? I am 1 Tired Wreck, but I am still Soldiering on. Have 2 work right up until my travels, but if my Ghana Sis Madonna can do it, so will I, even if I am about 2 Drop? Yesterday was 1 Interesting & Productive day & I got the opportunity 2 be Challenged from I left my home until I got back indoors… So BTU 2 all my colleagues at LEYF-LS – Suzanne, Michelle Hoofong, et al who supported me all the way! With Ur help I was empowered to brighten 1 Little Elderly Lady on the day she celebrated her 83rd BD.
I am sure my CEO who is an advocate of Multi-Intergenerational would be more than pleased about the work WE continue to do at LS to make this a Reality? Let’s hope Eileen Parker whom I sometimes escorted home when I see her at the BS at Alscot Rd really appreciated the card the children made 4 her? Next time I see her am sure she will tell me even if when I talk, she says “I CAN’T HEAR U, I AM DEAF…” So, it was from 1 end of the MIG process of the ELDERLY to the very YOUNG! Changes of any kinds do have an IMPACT on the Very Old as well as the Very Young, so these groups just don’t do things differently because they want to make OUR life a Living Nightmare? The morale of the story WE are never too OLD to LEARN?

I am taking a different approach to how I interact on Facebook as of now. I will not therefore be sticking to anyone format, but whatever happens to take my fancy daily. Today I will start with reviewing the Daily Express to see if I have anything in common with #FeaturedStories?
Page 1&3: Please Don’t Go LEN – Meeting up with a former colleague when I was coming from the East Street market led me to realise the significance of this story. I worked with briefly this African Lady at #PeckhamSettlement from January – July 2009. We greeted each other and stopped to chat as is the norms with people of our generations with similar cultural backgrounds. She could not believe anything that I was telling her about what happened to me at #BIB, #HOC and #NewCross LEYF Nurseries with the #Establishment and the #System conspiring and colluding to making my life a living hell.
The lady stopping to chat, sharing of her experiences that are similar to mine and reassuring me… help with restoring my faith in the human beings that continue to let me down when I needed their support the most.
Telling me it was a good thing I left when I did, she related how she had to stand her grounds and demands her rights not to be discriminated against. She eventually left with her #RundantPay that they did not want to give her.
The #Moral of the story is “some will support you, but some wont”. Take it from someone who has been in a few scrapes where I believed that no matter the outcome, I am going to stick to my principles. I have had to face some consequences over the years. I would advise you all never to depend on anyone, no matter who to come to your defence when you reach rock bottom. You can make your marker and knows who will be at your side when the time comes?
When one is a celebrity and living in the public eye, then that is a totally different experience all together. Some of my experiences in the UK since 2004 have not left me with much faith in the Establishments, Systems or even the #HumanSpecies. So good on all those who are rallying around and saying, ‘Please Don’t Go LEN’!

Mervelee Ratty Nembhard-Myers-Tomlinson was Born for a Purpose
I was in my early teens when dad took sick and over the years I watched as the burdens of life took their tolls on MUM, but she never once shirked her responsibilities to her family. It breaks my heart each time I called to speak to her and sometimes she has retreated to a world of her own where even I her only daughter cannot intrude. And then when she has some clarity and says things like you are so far away and don’t have money to come and look for me…? It makes matters even worse. But I must deal with the realities of life and know that I must continue working hard in the UK despite whatever may befall me to afford to give MUM a better quality of life. So, it is with a heavy heart I sit here and write this tribute to my MOTHER for the years of dedicated services she has provided. I know I have inherited all Mama’s traits and there is no escaping, but I hope I’ll be able to conduct myself with as much Dignity dealing with what life throws at me.
My Sister-In-Law Denese Clarke-Nembhard had an operation for a tumour and ended up with a stroke last year. When I heard the anguish when speaking to my brother, I sat at the computer and learned to pray aloud for the first time.
In honour of MUM
When I was born over ½ of a century ago my mum and gran were the 2 most dominant females in my life as I was blessed with only brothers, so I was always surrounded by males. This continued to be the norm as I was blessed with 2 younger siblings who turned out to be boys, and not the longed-for sister I had wanted all my life. However, I was later compensated for my lack of female siblings by the kind of long-lasting relationships I forged along life’s journeys. These relationships have led to my having so many role models, some older, my age and even younger in a support network that span the different communities in which I am privileged to have lived. Because of growing up in a household of mostly males it is no surprise that I grew up to be a typical Tom Boy until I hit puberty when mum tried to put a stop to my Tom foolery ways without an explanation. However, after many reflections I can understand mum’s rationale for trying to rope in the stubborn child whom I had become. I must confess that over the years I have morphed so much into my mum and granny that it is very much uncanny. I keep reminding myself at times…, but that’s exactly what mum and gran would do in the same circumstances. Reminds me of some of the sayings like chip doan fly fur from block, kettle a cuss pot black, pig did ask sow wat mek your mouth long suh and sow sey bambye you will see…
