How do you address your disability? Let’s say you’re in the grocery store and you notice someone staring, do you confront them or do you shy away? Growing up with a disability, I never really understood why people stood and stared and whispered about me behind my back. For Pete’s sake I’m standing right there, acknowledge that I exist and we can have a conversation about it. It wasn’t until I was older that I started acknowledging that someone had questions about me. I would politely answer the question which started a conversation. By the end, that person felt more comfortable talking to someone with a disability. I was no longer a strange commodity but a person with really cool talents.
