So Just What is Anita's Disability?
Just thought before we go on any further, especially, regarding the recent topic addressing the legalization of Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in general, that perhaps it would be best if I shared just what it is, that causes me to use a power wheelchair full time. If you are anything like me, usually when I seek advice or information, it wouldn't be from those who have no idea what they are talking about. You know, those certain "never" married, Priests who give pre-marital counsel to young couples. Or Occupational Therapists who assist others with rehabilitation and yet have never once experienced any form of disability or physical issues. Sure, I realize that sometimes that is just the way it goes and we have to receive support and advice from those who have been trained in a certain area of expertise. Doctors are perfect examples of those who may have never undergone any physical health issues, yet we must go to them to receive diagnosis and advice. But, I think you know what I am trying to say.
That's me way back!
For the same reasons above, even though "Walking. Way Overrated," hasn't covered all of the following areas, yet, I thought it would help to share a condensed version of the specific topics that God has blessed me with experience in and this will help you to know where I am coming from: the meaning of life, general knowledge of various disabilities, neuromuscular disorders, spinal muscular atrophy, children and disabilties, growing up in an institution, facing a death sentence at a young age, scoliosis, wheelchair accessibility, advocating for vulnerable persons, designing wheelchair accessible homes and environments, adaptive living, jewellerymaking, fine art painting, visual arts, life as a Christian (about twenty-three years), singleness, alcohol and drug abuse, marriage (been joyfully married for ten years! Praise God!)...and a bunch of other experiences... I
am still on this earth, able to produce this blog/vlog by the precious grace of God and nothing at all to do with me.
