About Me

Welcome to my blog. I started this blog in part to raise awareness of issues related to life with a physical disability and in part to create an avenue for myself to vent. I’m a twenty-something year old woman living in the United States. I’m struggling with the dreams I’ve held forever and the restrictions imposed by society. I’m not giving up though – I’m a fighter. I’ve worked too hard to let my life be dictated by others. I just have to keep telling myself that it’ll be worth the fight. I will not be defined by my disability.

I apologize in advance if I offend anyone. I try to be honest and straightforward while maintaining my anonymity for personal and professional reasons. Please feel free to comment and ask questions. I also ask that you share this blog with anyone who might be interested. We can’t create change in society’s response to a disability without educating others and pushing for what is right.

Thanks for checking out my blog :)

A human being is only interesting if he’s in contact with himself…You have to trust yourself, be what you are, and do what you ought to do the way you should do it. You have got to discover you, what you do, and trust it.

    That’s what I did. I had 14 days of vacation and used them breofe my short term disability kicked in. It was good because I was able to receive my full pay for the first couple of weeks. The short term disability was only 60% of my salary.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my search for something relating to this.

Is love possible?

When you are physically disabled and constantly labeled by society as physically flawed, you tend to internalize that and mentally accept it as the truth. Is love possible for someone like me? Will I ever be wanted, desired, or craved? I met someone online in early February. We chatted through e-mail and eventually texts until …

I was offered a promotion the week before Christmas 2012 and I’m still stoked about it. I have spent so many years applying for jobs and going on countless interviews only …
