I am telling you now because I want you to stop telling girls and women with disabilities that we’re broken, that we need prayers, that we’re burdens, that it’s okay if someone hurts us because “they’re probably just stressed” from having to “deal” with us, or that we’re pretty “for a girl in a wheelchair.”

Stop Telling Me That I’m Pretty for a Girl in a Wheelchair: How Your Words Contribute to Violence Against Women with Disabilities

This is such an aspie response at the end! For those that’ll miss it, Will doesn’t realize “tall” is the euphemism they’re all using since they don’t want to say “white.”

Sorry this is late. April was not a good month for me.

After a lifetime of failing to be normal, I finally realized I excel at being an Aspie.

This is what my diagnosis at 25 felt like.

Sorry… this one is a bit of a downer…

When I was a kid, I wanted nothing more than to use the seesaw on the playground. The problem was, I never had a friend for the other side. This crap still haunts me to this day when I see one. Batman, here, reminded me of what it felt like. I remember sitting like this throughout recess hoping someone would see me and want to  come over and join in. No one ever did.

(Depression and anxiety)

Wake up: Trouble finding the energy and motivation to drag yourself out of bed. This could take a while.

Shower: Low motivation and energy makes this extra difficult. Maybe I can go another day without a shower.

Get Dressed: Really don’t want to. Really don’t want to. So much effort. Shit, I have to leave the house. Oh, hello anxiety attack.

Breakfast: No motivation or energy to cook anything, guess it’ll be cereal. Again.

Work/School: You will have good and bad days. Some days are full of non-stop anxiety. Some require ‘dragging’ through.

A great visual explanation of Spoons Theory.

It’s important not to suddenly change plans on us. We really can’t handle it, as Michael here demonstrates perfectly.

Comedian and journalist Stella Young is tired of people telling her she’s an “inspiration” just for getting up in the morning. In a hilarious, hard-hitting, and thought-provoking talk at TEDxSydney, she explains why.
