Re: Interlectual disabilty - July 15th 2009, 08:34 PM

Hey there, Feebee.

I'm sorry to hear people are so closed-minded towards you. It sounds like they are judging you based on labels and before actually getting to know you, which is really unfair.

I is such a shame your school kicked you out. Is there any way you can disputed that decision, in order to go back? There may be an appeals board or some other avenue which you can use. You would probably have to write a letter disputing the decision and attend a meeting to voice your side of things. If that is something you want to do, you should definitely check into it.

I can definitely understanding both hating and loving your disability. I am terrified of losing my hearing, but at the very same time being hard of hearing is part of my identity--there is an entire community of people I know and can relate to because of it that I may not know, otherwise.

In the end, Feebee, it is what you think of yourself that matter. And it is what you believe of yourself that determines how far you will go in life, because when you believe in yourself nothing is impossible. Try to look at it this way: you are differently abled not disabled. You are still very able and capable of success and happiness, you just may have to take another road to get there, right?

Take care of yourself and let me know if you need anything. I'm just a PM away. =)



Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
