The Sunshine Blogger Award. I’ve seen this award going around on Twitter, especially during April and May. To have been nominated for three blogger awards within six months of blogging is startling! As I have stated, none of what I have been doing is for my own recognition. It is all to help further break down the discrimination and stigma surrounding the chronic illness, mental health, and disability communities. Continue reading

The Plastic Straw Debate

Did you know that plastic straws are being banned all across the world? That sounds like an amazing thing for the environment and wildlife. Don’t get me wrong, it is, but in the process, this straw ban is harming millions of disabled people. Most people are able to drink a beverage with or without a straw.

The food, live shows, games, and shops are all exciting to go to. However, the best part for me was the rides. Any type of ride I loved, yet I lost a big amount of love for these parks today. While I cannot go to these amusement parks anymore due to my disabilities, many other people with disabilities can go. Yet more and more of these people are being turned away and banned from going on these rides just because they are disabled. Continue reading

Did you know that adults and children alike all over the United States are being denied eligibility for organ transplants? Was it because they couldn’t pay for it, insurance didn’t cover it, or they didn’t meet the requirements? No, these beautiful people are being denied because they have disabilities.
