I’ve witnessed some pretty interesting social blunders since my mom began using a wheelchair. I generally let them slide because most people really do mean well. They may feel uncomfortable and unsure of how to act.
Pity fosters negativity. The truth is, alot of us with a disability have great potential. Please try to focus on our strengths and gifts, not our limitations. Don’t exclude us because you are afraid we will not be able to keep up or participate in what you are doing.
