how come when someone decides to eat only fruits and vegetables people commend them for their “willpower” and “diligence” but when i decide to eat a diet composed entirely of mozzarella sticks and vodka suddenly i’m “out of control” and “putting myself in danger”

The nerve!….This goes out to all the spoonies.
a handicapped spot, placed the sticker in my mirror and continued into the store. Upon returning to my car I found a note written by someone, it said “Shame on you, you are NOT handicapped. You have taken a space that could have been used by an actually handicapped person. You are a selfish young lady.” I was LIVID. How can someone be so ignorant and cowardly? They clearly saw me walk out of my car, why not approach me? Not all handicaps are visible. I would love for you to share this story. It would help spread awareness for CF, but it would help open people’s minds to what handicapped really is.
Thank you for your time”
A friend of mine fell over 20 feet and basically broke half his ribs, punctured his lung, broke his arm in three places that required many surgeries to fix and messed up a nerve in his leg. He had to walk with a cane for a long time after it and some lady in a restaurant thought he was just walking with a cane for the hell of it and she ripped it from his hands and grabbed his messed up arm and shook him and told him he was an awful human being for pretending to be handicapped. What the fuck people?
This is what real ableism looks like.
I have ulcerative colitis, an autoimmune disorder which causes my body to attack my colon, and I qualify for one of those stickers. I’m scared to get one, though, because I look healthy and whole.
A mutual friend of mine’s mother has severe fibromyalgia (that gives her a handicapped pass) and as she was walking to her car after buying her groceries, a man actually lunged at her and started yelling at her about her “not looking handicapped”. It left her mother shaking and crying, of course, and it just makes me so angry how awful and ignorant some people can be.
Not all handicaps are visible
Can I just pin this sentence on every lamppost all over the planet please
This is so upsetting :(
My cousin, Jake, got in a farming accident back in 2001 and lost his left leg just above the knee. He was sitting in his truck, as he can still drive okay, waiting for his son to pick up a few things from the store. He had his window down when a man pulled up beside him and started yelling at him for ‘taking advantage’ of the handicapped parking. HE IS LITERALLY MISSING A LEG HERE and has troubles with his arm from where is got caught up in equipment that took his leg. The man was still yelling, then grabbed him by his shirt and TRIED TO PULL HIM OUT OF HIS TRUCK through his window. Now at this point my cousin, Jake, was yelling back and trying to tell this crazy man that HE IS LITERALLY DISABLED. Eventually the guy looked down or something when he stopped shouting at him, said ‘Oh sorry’ and left. He just LEFT. Stupid people these days, I tell ya..
Smith and Wesson hideaways or “Belly Guns”
I’m just gonna let the world figure this out
