I have a disabled badge and yesterday I was having a rare day of feeling fairly ok. So I drove a short distance ( the only distance I feel comfortable with these days). Anyway, I parked my car in a disabled bay and as I got out and started to walk to the shop a man walking past said to me why have you got a badge you don't look disabled. He then said to his wife that they give them to anyone these days. I said I was entitled to one and that I was not about to explain my medical condition to him. He then saw someone in a wheelchair and said to me now there is someone who deserves one. I went into the shop and could feel him watching me. I just got what I needed and got out as fast as I could. I got in my car and burst into tears. There are some ignorant people around. Wished I could have thought of something clever to say back to him. Unfortunately, this is not the first time it has happened.
