Do you ever have people get angry at you for using the lift? 

At my college, you have to have permission in the form of a special key to use the lift. You don’t even need to use the key as they’re always open and functioning but it’s more like a symbol I suppose. 

But ALL THE TIME people are accusing me of not needing to use it or ‘discretely’ asking me if I should really be in it. It gets on my bloody nerves!

Eventually, I got one of my support workers to send round an email to the entire department with a picture of me and told them that they were to stop questioning me. It seems to have worked but it’s so frustrating that I even needed to do that. People are so quick to jump to conclusions, it felt like I was constantly having to prove myself and I have to do that enough with my doctors alone thank you very much.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else had any similar stories they wanted to rant about.

I hope you’re all well(ish) and I wish you many spoons- Meg
