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. I am on a mission to help break disability stigma and help you unlearn all the poor disability representation in the media.

    🤔 For starters, lying is unacceptable.

    Regarding views, a blogger is better off telling the truth to their viewing audience.

    I agree that lying online is a bad idea.

    I conceal some info about “Red,” an autistic person in my family. That’s because I want to write about autism while respecting their privacy. (Red is OK with this.) But instead of lying, I’m upfront about this fact. I wish more family members blogging about their disabled family members thought about privacy.

    I think some writers, mostly family members, sensationalize disability for clicks. They may exaggerate the worst parts of it. Some do this at the expense of their family member. I wish they thought more carefully. Pushing a “woe is me” narrative is neither true nor good for their disabled loved one.

    I know this is a bit of a tangent, but I wish people talked about it more!
