Shout-out to all the disabled and chronically ill people who were misdiagnosed, refused diagnosis and generally treated like crap by so-called medical “professionals”

(via spookyspoonie)

"If you’re not disabled now, then one day you might be. When that happens you’ll want to go to the pub or get on public transport. You’ll want to be seen as a person, not as a disability. Purely out of selfishness you should be fighting for disabled rights. If you don’t, you are prejudiced against your future self. And your future self hates you and thinks you’re a dick."

Richard Herring

Disability is an issue that confuses and embarrasses.”

Having a Chronic Illness is like being a white person in an informercial for the rest of your life.

When I think I’m making progress in health only to be slammed with a major flare up…

fibromyalgiasucks:

things like this make it harder and harder on people with REAL chronic pain to manage it and make it less likely for doctors to prescribe medicine that works to control it. When I have to go in once a month to get a new prescription for something I am taking away that time with the doctor from you. So even if you don’t have chronic pain- this makes it harder for you to see your doctor since I am going to be taking up 5 additional appointments for ever 1 I was going to originally.

"All disabled people experience disability as social restriction, whether those restrictions occur as a consequence of inaccessible built environments, questionable notions of intelligence and social competence, the inability of the general population to use sign language, the lack of reading material in Braille, or hostile public attitudes to people with non-visible disabilities."
