The Disability Diaries in The Guardian

What a great read the Disability Diaries are! I find myself amazed that there were so many experiences that were exactly the same as mine, and disappointed that so many of us have the same experiences, at the same time.

Sasha’s post from September 9th made me laugh! What is it with people offering advice that you never asked for and is highly inappropriate?!? I too have had a complete stranger tell me that stopping eating whole grains would lead to me leaving my wheelchair behind and walking again – and I also bite down on “oh bugger off”, and instead offer a withering “thanks”!

This had been on my reading list for far too long, and now I’ll be looking for more entries.
