Its happened yet again at my local Sainsbury's," you dont look disabled to me" was the question posed by an 70+ person always seems to be the elderly who make the most noise (nothing agains't the elderly). Sorry i said i seem to have forgotten my plackard today (bemused look by said fellow) yes my plackard that fits around my neck that tells you( not that it has anything to do with you that) i am disabled and i need the space because it hurts my legs, ankles, toes, knee's to walk all the way from the bottom of the car park. By this time a few people had gathered to see if this young person (me) was inflicting any verbal abuse on this elderly person. I pointed out to the elderly fellow that i was a complete ignoramus when it came to disabled people before i became disabled my self. I guess what i am trying to say is that because of the hidden disabilities we have regarding RA people will always assume that we are normal people.
Thats better off my chest now, the anger that is, not the plackard.
