    I can’t even imagine someone thinking let alone saying it out aloud that being disabled is like being on vacation.

    I’m sorry that you have to have these tough conversations on an almost daily basis. But I think society in general is moving towards the better in terms of how they view disabled people although the moving is happening at a very slow space. I hope us future generations do better.

      Yeah people can be rude but I don’t think it’s always out of bad intentions and sometimes I think it’s because people don’t understand what it’s like to be disabled and legitimately think that way. That is why advocacy is important because we can make people more aware of their ableism so they can at least try to do better!

My blog - http://clear-air-turbulence.com - provides questionable life advice. You should come and question me.

    Thank you for spreading greater awareness around disability. I believe if one can give meaning to their pain/difficulties – it can make a big difference. I can’t contemplate why anyone would tell a disabled person they’re so lucky to get a disability cheque? How extraordinarily short sighted some people must be. Alas, I suspect such people will always exist. I sincerity hope things improve – in terms of accessibility and awareness going forward. I, for one, will be mindful as a result of your words so thank you. I wish you well
