Recently, a friend linked me to thisarticle on
Facebook, and asked me for my thoughts. As you can see by the headline, the
article concerns the decision of the United States Supreme Court to hear the
case of Ehlena Fry, a girl with cerebral palsy prohibited from utilizing her
service dog at school. As I will begin training a service dog for myself
shortly, and have a degree in special education, my friend stated that my reactions
to this article were of particular interest for her.
I will be honest and say that this is very difficult
for me to write, as I understand both points of view at war in the case, that
of a disabled individual in need of accommodation, and that of a school
district who feels the chosen accommodation is an undue burden on them. I will
try to be as thorough and clear in my summation of my thoughts as I can, and I
sincerely apologize for what I know will in fact be quite a lengthy read.
Got this pencil case last year and I just wanted to say that I’m forever in love with it! I used to have a real hard time with my pens, pencils,etc because they would get lost inside a regular pencil case and drive me mad while searching for them with so many things messily displayed in it.
As a consequence of this, I would waste time and sometimes get overwhelmed by the situation…
Clearly the best thing of my stationery!
Actually speaking of disabilities and dragons, I’ve had this children’s story in mind for a while that features a princess and a dragon with a wonderful twist. I just *clenches fist* need to find someone who can illustrate it without sacrificing my rent.
“Do I have time to have a shower before I go out? If I have a shower will I have the energy to go out? If I DON’T have a shower will I have a panic attack about being a disgusting filth monster while I’m out? If I just stay in bed & read comics instead of going out will I hate myself forever?”
It’s a fun guessing game!
I can’t wait until we move & I have a shower I can put a shower chair in. I hate being a disgusting filth monster.
Just a friendly reminder: if you’re gonna fucking stare at me because I’m using a cane or because I’m in a wheelchair, at least smile. If not, you will get a dirty look from me and I might even say “don’t fucking stare at me”. I get that I may be interesting to look at, but I’m not a fucking spectacle. Show me some god damn respect.
I drop my charger cords a lot, and I have trouble leaning down to get them. It’s pretty much a daily issue and I’ve always had to wait to get them until I could ask somebody or help. Well, I just discovered how to do it myself.
So I was glaring down at the computer charger that I just dropped when my eye caught my iphone headphones. And an idea came to me. Flash forward 30 seconds and I’m successfully hooking my charger with the earbud of my headphones!! Finally I figured out how to get that done.
I mean idk what I’m going to do when it’s my headphones that I drop, but we’ll figure that out later.
