The trouble with being disabled

Is that nobody tells you anything. If you thought you could rely on somebody: Forget it. You're on your own. If you can't talk: too bad. Relying on anybody for support is futile. It's an age-old problem; you've found a brick wall. Now. How hard do you bang your head against it? What you should realise is that you're disabled and no-one cares if you have a problem. If it's your problem, then it's YOUR problem. Nobody wants to talk to you about it. I don't know how long it's been like this. Always i'd say. It never used to bother you because you weren't disabled.

I got banned from using my chair outside. I wanted to know how long the ban was for. Indefinite, i was told. Even murders get told how long they'd serve. Nobody gets told "indefinite".
They take away my rights and don't tell me about it. I've got no rights at all! What's fair about that?


  1. Who stops you from going outside with your chair? Can't you get Mandy or another family member to intervene on your behalf?

  2. If it wasn't for Mandy taking me out I would be stuck indoors permanently. The outdoor chairs whey want us to go out in are really uncomfortable. It's like wearing shoes that are two sizes too small. 😢

  3. There is nothing fair about that. Something as simple and as pleasurable as going outside should be easy.

  4. They sure seem to have a lot of rules at that home. Why do you have to use a certain chair to go outside? Is there a flat path or just grass? It's dehumanizing to tell someone they can't go out on a nice day.

  5. It's a punishment. I made a mistake. We all make mistakes, but we don't get punished indefinitely for it. Prisoners get better rights.

    1. Yes, they do. I hope the punishment is over soon.
