Is Being Stuck At Home Because Of A Disability Anything Like Being On Vacation?

My Rockin Disabled Life

Hi friends, my name is Sarah and I live with a disability called Spina Bifida and have more physical challenges than most people. The media has wrongly portrayed the disabled community for as long as I can remember and makes us all seem inspirational or depressed. I am on a mission to break all the stigma surrounding disability to help you learn the truth.

    I don’t have a fraction of the issues many disabled people do, and yet I find days taken up with “stuff” constantly, with little to no time for myself. I can’t even describe what the “stuff” is, but there’s a lot of medical stuff and then just a majority of the time lost to being unwell. “…they think we do nothing all day but what you don’t see is how much time I spend dealing with a stoma issue” – I think the fear of judgement, of other people thinking I’m lazy and doing nothing, is what really, really gets me. I had a strong work ethic, I worked damn hard for my degree and in my jobs; losing this is horrible to come to terms with. The judgement and stigma has a lot to answer for because it must make the lives of many of those with chronic illness, pain and disability that much harder than it already is. Fab post lovely.

      Yeah, there is so much medical stuff that disabled and chronically ill people struggle with every single day that you wouldn’t see or even know about unless you had our conditions. I spend most of my time dealing with challenges and there are still a lot of things I don’t think I could explain. I have been working on my design for over a year and finally had to bite the dust and go self-hosted before I was able to find something that I was happy with but I am glad you like it!
