The Disability Concept
At a glance it’s pretty obvious I’m disabled. Although disability is a part of me it doesn’t define me. That’s what I like about Katie Napiwocki’s latest column, Finding My Voice Within the Disabled Community. Having SMA is part of who she is, but it’s not all of who she is. It does allow her to make connections and even advocate for the disabled community. Sometimes though it’s nice to just be as she puts it, ” a gloriously ordinary human.”
What are your views on the concept of disability? Can you compartmentalize it in your lives?
