Ignorance towards disabled people

social-modelWhen uneducated people, people who just talk for the sake of it, seem to think if you are not in a wheelchair or have a limb missing, you are not disabled. This more than annoys me, it upsets me. When I can, I take my partner and my 2 daughters who are toddlers to the shops, and when parking in a disabled bay, you get “That Look” because you are not in a wheelchair

I study the human mind in my free time, I need to keep my mind active, and it does help with the pain. Keeping ones pain to a manageable level is hard, sometimes sitting comfy and writing about your feelings does two things, it takes your focus of the pain and allows you an outlet to talk about all the bad things

I am a very tolerant forgiving person, but sometimes when others make fun of ANY disabled person, no matter the disability. That disability to any person can ruin that person’s life. I would  say I am a very tolerant forgiving person, but sometimes when others make fun of ANY disabled person, no matter the disability. That disability to any person can ruin that person’s life. I would not say I am a very tolerant forgiving person, but sometimes when others make fun of ANY disabled person, no matter the disability. That disability to any person can ruin that person’s life. I would not say my disability ruins my life, but all I ask for every morning is one day, just one day with no pain

This blog has no anger in it, no hatred, nothing of that nature; I just want people sometimes to educate themselves on the matter. I would not say the subject is taboo, but it certainly is still mocked and is not known about. Again, no wheelchair, people doubt.

Pain is pain, and my pain kills my mind also. Some days are worse than others, I do not get 1 day where I can say 100%, but I get the odd day where I am maybe 20% ok. I worry; I suffer from depression and have contemplated suicide in the past. The hardest time of my day is early, when I wake up. It can take me anywhere from 1 hour to all day and all in-between for my body to get moving. Even when it does, it hurts.

Next time you see a disabled person, think of what other things get in the way of this person’s life. As trust me, it is more than the disability. We live and learn. And I do these blogs to reach out in the hope someone reaches back. If I help one person, then it is worth it.

Be Blessed
