    For me personally, I prefer not to compartmentalize my disability (I could if I wanted to – I’m very good at compartmentalizing lol). Sure, my disability isn’t the only thing about me, but it also affects everything I do. I’ve found solace in fully embracing my disabled identity and immersing myself in the disabled community. I love being disabled. It’s who I am. And if I don’t love who I am, then what’s the point? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    i agree with ariana. i have an identity and a culture that Is unique to those around me. its also made me pay more attention to social issues and i feel like i’m a better person because of it.
