My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I struggle more than most people because of a condition I have called Spina Bifida. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for many years which makes disabled people face all kinds of discrimination. My hope is to help you better understand what it means to be disabled and what it is not.

    I’ve never liked the phrase “confined to a wheelchair” because it treats wheelchairs like a cage instead of a tool for freedom. People need to get around somehow!

      I’ve never liked it either and actually, the correct term is wheelchair user! I agree “confined to a wheelchair” sounds negative as if we are chained to our chairs so you’ll never hear me talking like that.

        “Wheelchair user” is much more factual. I like that better.
