Brush up on your disability facts this ... According to the 50% of the world's disabled people can't access treatment. 😤 The pandemic is making that worse. Change is needed - now.

When I was young I focused on a career that I enjoyed, hoping I'd change things by being there. I got older & went into making change my career. I'm wondering if I actually made more of an impact when I was young? It was more fun for sure!

I've been rudely accosted by so many people demanding "why are you outside? You're meant to be shielding" as if me being outside will hurt them. If I was "vulnerable" it'd be them who might hurt me ffs! This whole period has taught me society has a long long way to go to equality

Being asked far too often "but why would disabled people want to... (fill in list of normal day to day activities)?" Then being challenged when you try to explain why they obviously would. Usually by people who talk about reasonable expense of making the activity is accessible

If it happens can we become refugees? Be an honour to live, work & contribute with the North & it's amazing people. ❤️ So many in the south think your treatment by Westminster has been appalling for too long.

What are the greatest accessibility fails you've experienced when lockdown eased? Hand sanitizer stations that aren't accessible? Narrow wheelchair-unfriendly one way systems?

No. Its because they have been poorly designed, terribly communicated & rolled out as a fete accompli. With a little effort the whole public could have been brought on board with the concept, helped shape & locate best solutions & been made to feel they were helping the future.

Hmm. Best bet is to use a speech to text phone app. Speak into your phone, let the phone translate to text so it can be read by the Deaf person. It's the best adjustment for both of you.

Jeez. Some doctors really shouldn't be practicing medicine. They shouldn't be allowed near animals let alone people.

Watching a TV series to review for this Friday. The Sister. Gripping stuff. To know more tune in from 7pm. Didn't know TV shows were made with ad breaks already cut. Just minutes of silence. Hmm? Makes me wonder about the times ad breaks crash in.

Just signed up for this course. Time I learned to sign & at this price you'd be silly not to.
