I think it might be good if you asked for contributions from people who have lived or who are living with disabilities and/or mental health conditions. Hope you don't mind the suggestion. I think we can all help to educate each other. πŸ™‚πŸŒΈ

Very good idea Marnie. From the way hb worded the post I thought she was saying she could educate us about various issues. Not being ageist but wasn't sure how much a 17 year old could teach me about mental health!

No apology needed my love. We have only the written word to communicate and it is easy to misinterpret this. Go girl! :)

Hello Marnie22

I figured out years ago that due to media pleas for donations, that 100% of the worlds population has some adverse health condition. We tend to look at other who seemly healthy and compare ourselves unfavorably to others. I attended a retreat several years ago and one of the retreat class leaders asked everyone to write down one thing that they would change about themselves, very telling. I was only attendee that did not have something I would like to change, but rather I am happy with myself, warts and all. Your suggestion is great as we all have to have coping methods. Blessings.

Thank you. I have a bit of an unusual view on this, as almost five years ago I suffered a brain injury in hospital that stopped me from working and caused many disabilities. The most difficult part, however, has been that it has changed my personality. I am aware of how I used to be but I am so very different now. It's a weird situation to be in. I am still learning how to evaluate all the changes. πŸ™‚πŸŒΈ

An excellent post Hiba and I think Marnie22 has a very good suggestion. πŸ’œ xx

Okay, we can start with that. Are you talking about dyslexia?

As a trainer, I prefer to call this learning differences and not disabilities as everyone is different and all people have the potential to learn things in many different ways

Hello Hiba I used to volunteer for young adults with Autismn. There are a lot of different types of this. I do not know how to describe it, some of them seemed highly intelligent. They were taught how to cook and ran the kitchen with supervision. A few could be aggressive, I was punched by a young lad at one time, his father made him aware he had done wrong. A couple of the boys did not talk, then again a few of them never stopped. I enjoyed my time with them, I did it for six years. I left after I had a fall and decided enough was enough. I still volunteer for older people, on the phone at the moment.

We should think of people as people - not in therm of their disability.

We should think of people as people, but take into consideration that all people are unique! xx

I do think of them as people, as I do the ones I now phone. I thought you wanted a description of what we know, some of those young people got married and are very happy.

I have experience as a mother of a 12yr old son with a type of eating disorder that's not very common or well known- inability to eat/chew textured foods. This has led to high stress/anxiety for the entire family..it'd be great if you could help spread the word of this type of disability through your wonderful idea of sharing living with disabilities!
