      Cool For those who did not know...

      This week is the last week of July, and it is also the last week of Disability Pride Month 2021.

      Not all disabilities are visible at a glance, or even a good look. Instead of focusing on a persons' disabilities as something that makes them stand out or makes them different or hinders them, learn to focus on all the incredible things people with disabilities do on a daily basis that YOU take for granted.

      I am disabled both mentally and physically, and I could use the handicap marker to park closer to the store, but I choose not to. There are others who need that spot more than I do. I am open and honest about what I can and can't do, and will always work to do more. Giving up and feeling sorry for myself is not an option and having others feel sorry for me is not an option either.

      Instead of feeling sorry for yourself or others, take the time to make a difference and help those who want and need the help. Join and support the many programs that help ALL members of the community and make not only your voice, but your actions be heard.

      Iím glad that you brought this up. I didnít know that itís Disability Pride Month.

      I also try always not to use my handicapped placard. I feel the same way about it that you do. And many disabilities are NOT visible from the outside. Many people take for granted how easily they can move through the world.

      If you see someone struggling either physically or mentally, please be kind. Although my friends know what I struggle with, most strangers do not.

      Thank you so very much. Your reply alone made it worth it for me to start the thread.

      Re: For those who did not know...

      I am vicariously, unabashedly, and very much autistic.

      I carry around plushies almost everywhere I go for sensory stimulation (COME ON @Sparck tell marketing and whoever's in charge of products we need them!). Most of them are Pokemon, some of them are named.

      There are some textures I CANNOT stand, lots of food ones especially.

      I samefood with macaroni and cheese a lot.

      My work and gaming routine is nearly the same, even in specific games I have a specific routine.

      I'm a caffeine hound because it helps me focus.

      I can talk on and on about linguistics.

      I have synethesia, which turns music into phenomenons of "music videos" where none existed.

      I think Wizard101 plushies would just be super nice to have in general if they're well made

      I don't like it when people call things impossible, because it usually isn't.

      Someone already made a thread asking about this, and Sparck liked the idea. I'm assuming it's in the works, I'm just impatient. lol

      Yes! I almost forgot about that. @Sparck, any updates on this possibility?

      Thank you for starting this thread. I am so grateful for the progress our country has made towards accommodating disabled people. College accommodations have been especially useful. The hard part is dealing with people who think of us as "lesser" humans.

      Re: For those who did not know...

      I didn't even know it was disability pride month! I'm happy to hear that's a thing, and as a person who struggles with mental illness and who cares about everyone, I also appreciate you posting this thread. You're right, not ALL disabilities are visible and that doesn't make them "trivial." And being disabled doesn't make anyone "less of a person"--you should still treat them with kindness and respect. But to end this post off, I too urge anyone who reads this thread to help those who are disabled physically and emotionally and to make a difference in their local community and world. It really doesn't have to be a major action to make a major difference.
