What we go though as Disabled People

The hardest part about having a disability is that no one really take us seriously.  It is like pulling teeth to be heard as we wish to be heard, and taken into consideration and regarded like the rest of the world. Too many times, we as “disabled individuals” are payed no attention too, ignored, over-looked, and “be programmed” to being nice little individuals, which turn into Convenient robots. This being, because they fear we will loose control and embarrass them.  Thus, we who have Cerebral Palsy, a learning disability of Dyslexia, and or any other type of disability are; tossed a bone to keep us pacified, and are patronized, and are regarded as a problem, rather than a asset to our world and our community.

We too often are looked down upon rather than regarded as someone with importance, worth, or value and worthy of attention.  We are plighted beyond words because it is easier to ignore our abilities to focus on  details.  Time and time again I have been aware of others viewing me as a helpless, victim, and not the intelligent, confident person, that I am.  We find acceptance from the public and professionals when we are cute little children, and are not a threat to society.  But we grow up, have a mind of our own, and desires to fill, that acceptance immediately fades away into nothingness!
