I will never understand why people do that but I will share a story with you because it tickles me. I have a physical disability. Because of this I do not have the ability to drive which has always made finding what people consider to be a "normal 40 a week job" a struggle. Then when the economy tanked I had even less luck because there were so many people without said limitations looking too. My dad told me once given the cards I was dealt that I would likely have to find my own niche. Because even though I am very capable many people will not look past my mobility issue even today. That being said I started 2 business. They are small and sometimes its a struggle but I do what I can and I am mostly content. Recently I was at the store and I stopped to drop a few extra items I bought into the food bank box. Another shopper practically tackled me. Like came from across the store yelling at me not to do that. She then explained that the food bank was there to help people like me and I should not give to it but go an apply since I was "poor and handicapped" After I picked up my jaw off the floor I told her I was quite aware what a food bank did and knew exactly what I was doing and would she please get out of my way? Clearly she thought I misunderstood because she kept trying to put set items back in my bag. At which point I lost my cool and yelled at her. She stalked off mumbling something about rude youngsters. It never crossed her mind that she was making judgements about my finances based solely on my mobility divice and that it wasn't any of her ****** business. She had made such a scene that that manager and was so worried about poor deluded me had to calm her down. I am glad to see you didn't loose your cool! Enjoy your new ride!!

Dan I respect your honesty about your journey and your willingness to share it. None of this easy. But I believe that in the end it will be worth it!!! Hang in there and hold on to what is your most important for you in this moment. Go moment to moment until you can got a little bit longer. It will get better. It's just sometimes at the beginning of any journey that can be hard to see!

It's so sad to me that any us who are different then what society says is "normal" or "right" seem to travel the same path My disability was the thing I hated most about myself in my teens and early 20's and I too stood in front of mirror but in my case holding a handful of pills. Trying to make the decision to live or die. I want to say I decided life was worth living. But since you are being so honest so will I, the truth is I was afraid, that I'd screw up and become more disabled then I already was. At that point I was feeling so badly that I was sure I couldn't even get suicide right. !9 years later, I'm glad I chickened out. Because I'd have missed everything. My take on it has always been that those of us who are feeling as though it's coming from all sides MUST STAND TOGETHER because to throw stones at one is to throw stones at as all, hate does not discriminate. It's only together that we can make this better. Thank you for being so honest. I wish peace happiness and love in your continuing journey and hope you feel comfortable enough to keep sharing some of it with us.
