Sometimes you’re damned if you do you’re damned if you don’t – that’s what I keep learning
It’s 7: 24 PM on day 664 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself All Bran Flakes for breakfast, spend some time outside, go visit people, feed myself brown rice and vegetables for lunch, prepare and publish my Disability of the Day feature, prepare and publish my Kid of the Week feature, feed myself rice and vegetables for dinner and brush my teeth once more.
This morning we had a few visitors one of whom walked up to me, squeezed my cheeks and started making the sort of sounds that people make when they’re around babies if I was curt and said please stop talking to me like that people would not only say what’s wrong with her they would add her parents didn’t raise her right on the other hand if I didn’t say anything – which was what I eventually decided to do - people would continue to treat me like I was two sometimes I wish my wheelchair was invisible so that people had no choice but to treat me like any another twenty-one-year-old. Do you sometimes feel like you’re in a loss-loss situation no matter what you decide to do?
