Health Advice That Is Often Said To Disabled People That Is Not Helpful

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 think people love to imagine that things like disability are under our control. If you just do the right thing, you are safe and free from problems. It’s a comforting little lie people tell themselves. So then, if they see a disabled person, they assume the person must be disabled because they are doing something wrong.

      Yeah I agree that people sometimes think disability is caused because someone is doing something wrong which is why it’s so important we educate and hopefully people will come around eventually!

        Yes, sometimes people just don’t know better! I think some people hesitate to face the truth that bad things can happen to good people who aren’t doing anything wrong. Not everything that happens to us is in our control. Sometimes, all we can do is accept the facts and find the best way to move forward.
