Not Disabled Enough…?

I haven’t actually written about my disabilities and how they impact my day to day life for a while.  This isn’t because they haven’t been affecting me, but simply because when I’ve passed comments I’ve found that certain areas of the disabled community (and society…. I’ll get there) seem to think it’s a competition of some sort and that some people just aren’t “disabled enough”;  for what exactly I’m not 100% sure.

What I am sure about is that just because I don’t “look disabled” doesn’t mean my disability can be written off or ignored & invalidated and when I say the words “I am disabled”, I shouldn’t have to prove it to anyone.

Wheelchair…?

The time has come…. And I hate that so much.  I at least out did the doctor’s original estimate which was wheelchair before 30.

I’ve now got to the point where walking into town or going to Peterborough is almost out the question because I’m in constant pain.

Fibromyalgia Crisis

Euch…. I’ve had to mentally psych myself up for this blog because I have no clue where to even start.

Since being diagnosed in 2010 and learning I’d probably had my fibro since I was a child, I have only ever had two fibromyalgia crises. The first was in 2013 and I was at a gig (30 Seconds to Mars) with my ex. We had to leave early and I was wheeled to the tube after I refused to go to the hospital.
