Hi, 

I live with my disability all of the time and it surely limits what I can do.  I try not to feel sorry for myself, since that will take me right down "the rabbit hole."  I try to focus on what I can do rather than what I cannot do.  I miss my old abilities though.  

 

I have learned a lot about the reality of living with a disability.  One thing I learned firsthand is how a person with a disability is marginalized.  I especially felt that when I was using a wheelchair.  I was ignored, eyes averted away from me. or people would talk to my husband like I could not communicate or listen.  Every person should be treated in a respectful way and not judged.  (After all, who gives anyone the right to judge?)

 

I now have 2 1/2 "disability" paintings completed.  

 

 

 

I Was Invited to the Party  is about the barriers faced everyday by the people who use a wheelchair, walker, canes or crutches.  We need to remove as many barriers as possible.  

 

Words Hurt  is about the words people use for a person with a disability.  There also are 4" x 9" rack cards that promote "people first" language and inform that a person is NOT their disability. they HAVE a disability.  

 

I hope to get these painting out there and am working on another painting.  

 

Please advocate for people with disabilities and be kind to them and everyone else, too.
