Finding peace in a field

For most of us, day to day life with a disability is one of ‘routine’. Not that it is usually possible to keep a routine, by using the word ‘routine’ I mean that day to day the same things tend to happen; you wake up tired or in pain, you have a shower and feel exhausted, you get dressed and need a rest, and so on.

PLEASE sign and share our petition

One of our members, Sheila, shared her upsetting experience with our group members today, and we wanted to share it with you too.

Dating, disabilities and a woman

‪#‎dating‬ perspectives from a ‪#‎woman‬ who knows what she wants…

The person who rejects you wasn’t in your life in the first place, so you aren’t losing anything, plus they must suck anyway.

It’s all about perspective.”
