#AbleismExists because…

  • Because I shouldn’t be all too familiar with the confusion people face when they resize someone can have a visual difference and be intelligent.
  • Because the fact that I have a decent job and apartment isn’t extraordinary.
  • Because, for the love of god, ASK before you touch the service dog!
  • Because there’s nothing heroic about living my life.
  • Because many people still equate speech impairments with intellectual disabilities.
  • Because… so much more. But I need to get ready for work, because yes I can and do.
