Then There Was Me

“What Did You Say. . .”

Leave a comment

We are all judged every single minute of every single day . . .We are profiled based on monikers of society.  By marketing campaigns, home loan officers, job interviewers, or  the person approaching us on the street.  What do they see, and how much do they understand.  When I say the word “disabled,” there is a brief moment where you want to explain, to reason it out with the sound.  The moment passes, as “we are all judged every single minute of every single day.” 

. . .there is never a moment where you can explain or add a thought to further explain its sound/ the very nature of your disability.

I take ownership of having Parkinson’s and dealing with it, with facing it.  However, YOU DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT to use the meaning of it against me.  You do not have the right to minimize who I am, because I am not like you.
