Disability isn’t always a walk in Mary Poppin’s park of life. It’s not always filled with sunshine, gumdrops and rainbows. There are things that are hard about living with a disability, trying to figure out the puzzle that disability can be, working through prejudice, misconceptions or what-have-you. Or maybe it’s just a pain in the butt when you need your wheelchair fixed and the fix-it person is ALWAYS ON VACATION! Or it’s a challenge getting the right hearing aid, tools to help you access the world.

Whatever it is, write. Just write. This is a safe space.

The writing prompts are optional:

If you’d rather just post the link to another post you’ve written, that’s fine. You do not need to follow the prompt!
