Just a quick post today, I have a lot of new posts due up the next few days so look out for them!
I had a lovely time away and saw Family that I ALWAYS love to see although saying goodbye is the hardest part.
Whilst there we went to Paignton Zoo – which will be the topic of a post soon as was VERY impressed with there access maps etc.
I used marina whilst going round the Zoo- nothing new – I’ve used Marina before.
HOWEVER, this was the first time that I had taken ‘proper’ pictures whilst IN Marina.
It had mixed reactions via social media I have to admit.
A lot of people messaged and said it shocked them because it reminded them that actually I’m really poorly.
For some of you – it was a realisation.
I actually ‘look disabled’ in this picture – which might have something to do with the fact THAT I AM DISABLED YOU IDIOTS.
I’ve taken almost a week to reply to these messages – because in all honesty, I wasnt sure what to say.
I know you don’t mean to be rude and you dont mean to upset me.
The reason why I ‘look ill’ is because I AM ILL.
You think its hard for you to see me like that- imagine how I feel to be LIVING ‘that’.
I didnt choose this. ANY of this.
Its not a choice to be disabled.
Its not my choice to need to use my wheelchair.
I’m sorry if my pictures upset you- but at the end of the day- if my selfies are fine…
Why is it different when I sit in my wheelchair?
Food for thought for some of you I think.
Lifes too short for crap.
I love you all
