    Adapting to Life Outside Our Home With SMA

    I once heard a joke that a woman’s mind is like an Internet browser that has 1000 tabs open and running at once. I laughed at the time, but came to realize that if I didn’t actually feel like this before hearing the short acronym “SMA,” I most certainly do now.

    I spend much of my time pre-planning and thinking of possible problems that we may run into because of the kids’ diagnoses. I think many other SMA parents do this as well. Prior to our lives with SMA, we didn’t realize just how inaccessible the world is to those who are differently-abled.

        Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I thought I’d share one of my recent blog posts in celebration of Avengers coming out this weekend. I’m not a die-hard superhero fan, but Arrow is the one show I keep up with. My favorite character, Felicity Smoak, is leaving at the end of this season, so I wanted to write a little dedication to her.

        The character Felicity is based on, Overwatch, is in a wheelchair. There was a several-episode arc in season four where Felicity was in a wheelchair, and the disability representation, while imperfect, meant a lot to me as a college student who had never really seen herself in media. I will always remember those episodes fondly.

        Do you have a favorite example of disability representation?

        I love Arrow too.  I actually liked Felicity, but I got burned out in season 6. The “Olicity” thing got so old.
