The question for today...
What would you like the general public to know about your disabilities, disability in general, or any other relevant subject?
Hmm, not to bad of a question. I'm fairly opinionated about the public reaction when faced with me.
- In general people with disabilities do not need your pity.
- They may need your help from time to time though. Either offer or wait to be asked.
- Assume nothing. You know what they say about assume.
If you open doors all the time for others, then go ahead and open it for me. If you don't- don't do it because you assume I need you to. I have been disabled by my stroke for close to three years now, I'm perfectly able to door it myself. If not, I'll ask for help.
In a nut shell that's it.
