    Thanks for posting this list of links. I’m ashamed to say that I was almost completely unaware of disability issues until I got sick in 1990. By 2000 I was too sick to work and had to file for long term disability benefits (I’m in the USA). And after all these years I still struggle daily with eradicating all the ablist messages that are stuck in my head.

    Disability issues are complex and are often overlooked — thanks for blogging about it!

    That’s a great list Mindy, appreciate your efforts to bring to light issues faced by those who deal with any form of disability. Everyday I see my grandma struggle with her neural disorder and know how difficult it can be to get through each day. It can be so inspiring to read about people who fight it out with courage, slowly inching towards their goals and don’t let their disability become the focus of who they are.
