"Stop telling me I'm inspirational. I'm not here to inspire you." [follow this link to find a short video and analysis of how discourses on disability are being disrupted but don't go nearly far enough: http://www.thesociologicalcinema.com/1/post/2014/01/building-manichean-bodies-the-problem-with-those-disabled-mannequins.html]
injustice is not only alive and well but thriving here in the United States. Just as with people from other minority groups, people with disabilities face discrimination every day, even in a "progressive" city like Chicago. Discrimination in terms of housing, employment and medical care. Discrimination in terms of marriage equality and the right to bear and raise children. Discrimination in terms of the right to control or even have a say in matters regarding their own bodies.
Pain caused by RSD is a pain that's unexplainable! If you don't know about it, don't judge me!! I get so sick of people saying "its all in your head" or "if you change your thinking you will get better". Seriously?!?! Maybe YOU should attempt to go through this!!
