  1. The Wheelchair Teen – I am a black, disabled teenager and my blog shares my personal experiences, some of the struggles and triumphs I’ve been through, as well as posts that educate people about disabilities to help end discrimination against disabled people.

    This post was so interesting to me – I’m a disabled teenager but because of the community that I live in, and because I go to an able-bodied school: I’ve hardly ever met any disabled people. Therefore, all of my friends have to be able-bodied since I don’t know any disabled people. I’d never even considered a situation like yours before. What you said about able-bodied friends finding it hard to comfort you really made me think. I guess because I only have able-bodied friends, I’m used to keeping everything about my disability to myself and hardly talk about it with anyone other than my family. That’s why I’m so happy to connect with disabled people online like you. I love your blog!

      Some disabled people have a really good experience with abled friends and have no issues with abled-bodied friends I just happened to run into a couple of bad apples so it never worked out. Yes, your right having disabled friends is something every disabled person needs because there are some things your abled friends won’t understand about disability and you will want to talk to another disabled person about. I am glad you are liking my blog!
