My body: clicker clack, your chronic pain is back." Image 5: a Tumblr text post by @ fleekfreak saying, "What healthy people take for granted is just the feeling of being alive and well. When you're chronically ill, a good day to you is still a bad day for a healthy person. These good days though - they are so sweet and precious that when a spoonie experiences it, they never want it to end."

WOW STEVEN! I had no idea that disabled women such as myself were considered second-rate bargain bin! 🤣 Thanks for the notification!
•
🤔 Funnily enough, I have met veterans like @fredlewistp who were disabled in the line of duty, avid fitness junkies who are disabled AF (just look at the @shieldmaiden.socal), and country boys? I’m certain there are a million disabled ones out there. 🤠

Ah, If only you can see how much we are like you, Steven, you’d be quick to differentiate from us with your #AbleistLanguage. 😉

About 30% of the LGBT+ community is afflicted with some kind of disability. While it is not often talked about, it is important to recognize and to acknowledge the double marginalization these people face. — 
While same-sex marriage has been legalized in all fifty states, disabled people (despite their sexual orientation) can and will lose their benefits and rights to themselves if they get married. This is the next step to focus on in the fight for marriage equality. The war isn't over yet. —
Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people are more likely than their heterosexual peers to have a disability. It is speculated that this is caused by the poor mental and physical health conditions being compiled with the social problems they face. Disabled LGBT people tend to develop or get diagnosed with disabilities at a much younger age than heterosexual people. -

⚠️TW: mention of eating disorders, description of animal abuse
*sigh* I don't understand stuff like this. Both the post and the commenter, it's like they thought to themselves "How could I tick off/upset a whole group of people who haven't done anything to me for absolutely no reason?"
Let's get something straight:
Veganism isn't doable for everyone, and that's okay. However, VEGANISM IS GOOD. It's good for the environment, it stands up to animal abusing corporations, and as far as I know it's one of the only diets with any kind of evidence that it's good for you. Personally, I'm not against eating animals, I think it's a natural part of life. I AM against animals being kept in disgustingly miserable conditions for their entire lives (examples: being in cages so small they can't move or grow properly, cows standing still in pools of their own feces, male chicks being thrown alive into blenders, etc). Corporations do this kind of stuff because it's cheaper, and by reducing our consumption of animal products in protest, they would eventually be forced to change their tactics. Plus, if everyone consumed less animal products, corporations wouldn't have to produce such ridiculous amounts. This would also benefit the environment which tbh is the biggest reason to reduce meat consumption in my opinion. I don't believe that everyone should be vegan because not everyone can be (I was a vegetarian for 2 years, but being in recovery from an eating disorder, I can't put any limits on my diet or it can trigger a relapse), but I DO think that people who can REDUCE their animal product consumption SHOULD. Anyway this is getting too long lmao and I'll probably make other posts about veganism, but in the meantime, don't shit on vegans, they're doing their best and what they're doing is amazing.

Having a disability is not something to be ashamed about, so it shouldn’t be a compliment to tell someone they’re not really disabled!

Do you have anyone who is a mentor to you or someone you know? Do you or someone else know someone who shows leadership? Please share!  I also like to reflect on this inspirational poem from Laura Hershey: Remember, you weren’t the one
Who made you ashamed,
But you are the one
Who can make you proud.
Just practice,
Practice until you get proud, and once you are proud,
Keep practicing so you won’t forget.
You get proud
By practicing. #disabilityawareness #disability #leadership #mentorship #mentor #ilrc_trico #yodisabledandproud #ableism #diversity #advocate #advocacy #socialjustice #humanrights #cfilc #wearehereforyou #disabledandproud

No discussions or talk about #race/#racism, #Trump, #nazis, #ableism, #Brexit, #femenism and #trans issues. Not here for that. Not yours to demand I "shut up and listen". I don't have the mental energy or time to deal with your online slacktivism.
SUPPORT BISEXUALS!!! Also, lately I’ve been feeling like I might be bisexual or homoflexible because pansexual a don’t care about gender and I’d rather be with a girl than a different gender (all other genders are still valid though!) ~

This was said to me in a discussion about straws. People sometimes need them for accessibility. But, ol’ Robert McChodepants here is having a tough time grasping that concept. He also doesn’t understand that ableism includes asking me if he needs to “write it out in Braille” so I could understand him since, apparently, I’m “stupid.” Nah, bro. There’s more, but honestly I just laughed through it all because I’m unbothered by petty fools ... but not above putting them on blast. 😂

Seriously, don’t be like Robert. 😘

You can f*** off.
Not so friendly reminder to people I don’t know: you don’t have the right to know “what’s wrong with me,” no matter how holy or well-meaning you think you are being. You can’t just start a conversation with, “Ma’am, why do you have a cane?” And expect me to tell you my whole life story right then and there. I don’t owe you anything  that has to do with my body, and you most definitely do not deserve any of my kindness.

I know it's been a while. But I really needed to focus on what was in front of me. And to do that I had to step away from social media. But I'm in a really good place now and I want you all to know I haven't forgotten about you! I'm happy to be back.
•
For the past year and a half the Ripple has been a community for me. I was excited to find content and share it with you all. And that's what I want to get back to.
•
Thank you for being my community. Tag your community and let them know how much you love them ❤️ -Diane

My dysautonomia has been really bad today, and so I decided to take a quick trip to cvs to grab some of the natural Gatorade I drink(I can’t tolerate dyes in the regular kind). It took almost everything in me to leave the house, and then I stood in line for 10 minutes. By the time I checked out, I felt my heart rate climbing and knew I needed to sit down soon so I didn’t pass out. So I briskly walked out of the store to make it to my car before that happened.
-
-I walk over to my car, which is parked handicap because I have a permanent placard, and a lady in the space next to mine is standing by her car, and she goes “Look at you strutting to your car, you’re lucky.” And mind you I’m trying not to pass out and just trying to get home, and I say “uh, excuse me?” And she tells me that I have “a privilege, being young and all”, and that I should “take advantage” of it.
-
-Luckily I was feeling too poorly to stand there and argue so I kept my mouth shut, rolled my eyes and got in my car so I didn’t pass our, but how fucking DARE you? Just because I walked fast to my car or look young, that means I have a “privilege”? Thanks lady, I’ll tell my 10, mostly genetic diseases that they should feel “privileged”. 🙄
-
-You have NO idea what’s going on in someone else’s body and you have NO RIGHT to judge them just because they “look okay”. Little did she know I had 3 brain surgeries in the last 2 years, that I have a partially dislocated shoulder, 3 dislocated ribs, and can’t be upright for more than 20 minutes without passing out because I work so hard to help others that I’m stuck in my room most of the time. She doesn’t see me needing to chug Gatorade or rotate ice packs every hour just so I don’t overheat and pass out. She doesn’t see me crying in severe pain, stuck in my room, in pain so severe she probably couldn’t even fathom it.
-
-Next time, think before you speak. You never know whose day you’re ruining by saying the things you do. Next time, keep your fucking mouth shut, and mind your own damn business.

This is extremely satisfying and much needed after submitting my Response to a NOID (Notice of Intent to Dismiss [certain personal respondents]) to the Human Right Tribunal of Ontario. 
I had to dig back into the pain, trauma and anger from the degradation by 2 specific people. Having to explain that yes, using harmful stereotypes to make false allegations is in fact #ableism. And why their on going behaviour constituted harassment. [Video of a snake shedding it's skin with help from a person]

Yesterday, a person stared at me for “man spreading” on the train (because little did she know that my left leg was locked up, and I was experiencing horrible #endometriosis cramps) and her eyes said, “DOES YOUR DICK NEED THAT MUCH SPACE?” And, my eyes said, “No, but my *pussy* does, and I’m taking him to the *vet* today if you catch the drift of my still active menstrual cycle.”
.
.

More importantly, just look at my pussy. Doesn’t he have his daddy’s eyes?

"There will always be a rich and full life to live whether its the one you wanted or not. Just because its hard doesn't mean it's not worth it." A beautiful message that Claire wrote on the white board when being discharged from the hospital one day. Written for "the (next) precious patient in room P240". It's a message that reaches far beyond the #cysticfibrosis community and touches everyone who has ever said "why me"? I cherish the pictures I have of moments when Claire blew me away with her depth, her true understanding of suffering and beauty existing in harmony and her innate understanding of what it means to be human. Thank you Claire for all the wonderful words of inspiration you have left in this world. Your message still reads loud and clear ❤💪🙏 #clairewineland #CureCF #inspiration #livefromthehospital

ABLEISM from #lovebarkley Why am I not surprised? This is Love, Barkley’s comment in response to me using the “defected” instead of “defective” in my message to a customer who said they were scammed by Love, Barkley. Ableism from someone who makes service dog harnesses, yikes!

The world is not made for people with disabilities. There have been huge steps in the right direction over the past few decades, but generally speaking, the world isn’t made for us. The education system is based on the ability to hear, see, and comprehend material, then recall that information to determine if you are learning it. Stores and restaurants are designed for ambulatory individuals, often without room for mobility aids or medical devices. And society as a whole still stigmatizes and discriminates against people with disabilities
As I’ve relied on my wheelchair in public more often, I’ve noticed that society’s stigmas on people with disabilities has created internalized ableism within myself. I put unrealistic and unreasonable expectations on myself to interact (socially and physically) in the conventional ways that society says I should. I apologize for my wheelchair or service dog taking up more space. I apologize for dropping things or bumping into clothing racks. I apologize for needing accommodations at school and work. But, I’m not shameful or worth any less, simply because I need more help or I take up a bit more space than the average person
I’m un-learning that my needs are less valid. I’m un-learning that my body is shameful just because it works or looks differently. I’m learning that I don’t have to conform to society’s expectations just because my abilities are different. I’m learning to live unapologetically in my body

I had a huge caption wrote out, but IG didn’t post it. I know I’ve posted my placard before, because I was so happy to receive it. I don’t want to be sick especially young so this helps so much. But, some ableist piece of shit (I assume) saw me and was like she’s not disabled because, she looks health and snatched my shit out. My placard was stolen for whatever reason. Maybe some idiot really did take it to use even though my picture is on it. I don’t believe so though.

What do you wish you knew your freshman year of college? Here’s Gabby, one of our new Peer Mental Health Advocates, on how her perspective has changed these past few years. PMHAs are individuals with lived experience who mentor and advocate for others. To learn more about the program, visit letserasethestigma.com!

“I wish I knew that happiness is not a place, a person, an object, an A in a tough class, a fun party, or a good conversation. Happiness comes from within. Everything else is constantly changing. There is no magic wand to make negative feelings or mental illness immediately go away. It is work and it is tiring and it is unfair but it is worth putting work into and making space for yourself. Others can support you, but it is always worth investing in your own healing and growth.” — Gabby, @brownu
