LOVING this series!
Last night they talked about disability, and like the girl said everyone is different. So how i feel about a situation could be completely different.
I really did understand how she felt shopping. I used to love shopping, and i still do to an extent, but its so hard!
- I cant use my electric chair as isles are to narrow, or theres a lip an electric chair cant get over.
- Its impossible to try things on.
- Theres no customer lift.
- As your body has changed sooo much i get really down, clothes dont sit right. My mum dreads helping me dress. Its so important to me i dress well as it helps me feel "normal" Almost 5yrs on & im still trying to get used to my body.
I did find Cherrys awkwardness funny. I really dont mind people asking if i need a hand, i dont like if someone just grabs my chair, mostly because it just normally makes things harder.
I have had people talk to me like i have mental incapability's, which is immensely frustrating, but its not as much as i think i expect it. I have a preconception that others will judge me, which is wrong of me. People can walk on eggshells sometimes. They try not to offend me, and are very wary of asking questions. I really dont mind questions, how else do you get to know someone.
It did sadden me when she said she felt she had ruined her life.
I of course have days when i break down & think why me?! But i dont feel i have ruined my life, its taken a bit longer then i planned, but i finished college, im off to uni, i still want to get married, have babies.
I could debate this forever... but i hope my lil 2 cents has given you an insight to my thoughts/life.
