      July is Disability Pride Month, and in my latest column, I discuss how my journey with disability pride isn’t linear. Yes, I am proud of the person I am and that includes my disability, but some days are still challenging. Some days, my disability pride is overshadowed by the seemingly endless feat that everything about my body is out of my control.

      In spite of this, I choose pride. For I’ve worked really hard to become who I am today and continue to strive to be better. What are your feelings towards Disability Pride Month? Are you someone who participates in the movement?

      Yeah I totally feel this. Sometimes I feel really isolated and/or defeated but other times I feel proud of what I have managed to accomplish. I use the term “accomplish” loosely—an accomplishment to me is anything you are proud of and it need not fit into anyone else’s definition of “accomplishment.”

      Agreed. That’s how I think of the word “success,” too.
