*Please rt* I'm looking to speak to Deaf and hard of hearing students and teachers about barriers that we face due to masks limiting lip-reading for an article I'm pre-reporting.

Hi if you're too fatigued to care for yourself and your doctor has suggested that you exercise, reduce your stress, or improve your sleep hygiene instead of suggesting that you get formally evaluated for a chronic illness, please know that your doctor is bad at their job.

Replying to @JoannaNoBanana
We need more ramps, more proper representation in films (by actual disabled folks), less fragrances, more accessibility to healthcare, less forced poverty, less abelism, more education about disability and chronic illness, and so much more

Hey ableds, Instead of calling disabled folks “inspirations” for simply living our lives and using our struggles to justify why you’re grateful for your life, utilize that energy into making the world more accessible for us.

Stranger:”Here, let me help” (starts pushing my wheelchair.) Me:”I’ve got it. Thanks.” Stranger:”I insist.” (keeps pushing my chair) Me:”You need to stop now.” Stranger:”You could be nicer.” A wheelchair is not a pushcart. Don’t push it without permission.

Medical staff:”Have you always had special needs?” Me:”I don’t believe I have special needs. Like everyone else, I need access.” Staff:”Well, our exam table is elevated so you’ll need a lift. That’s a special need.” Inaccessibility does not create a special need.

Stranger to me, a wheelchair user:”If I were you, I’d kill myself.” Do you still think ableism is harmless?

A non-disabled person just told me that people in the UK 'are generally looked after exceptionally'. Disabled people, do agree with this statement? Overall do you think our society is a supportive/inclusive/accessible place for us?

Seriously, please stop using the clapping hands emoji between every fucking word though! It's inaccessible to screen readers, and there's an equivalent that people have been using since forum chat rooms existed. It's. Called. Periods. At. The. End. Of. Every. Word. Like. This.

People shouldn’t have to tell you they’re immunocompromised for you to take their covid concerns seriously.

I don’t think people realise that when you have chronic illness(es) your ‘good’ or ‘better’ days are on par with an able person’s sick day, but we are expected to just have to get on with it instead

Chronically ill people trying to access treatment or a diagnosis should not have to learn The Exact Right Words to unlock actual medical care instead of dismissal or fat-shaming Me: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A Dr: ok you're right we should run that test

"Y'know, not everything can be made accessible." I mean, sure, if we're talking about flipping fucking tractor tires and not, like, a store or a degree or a job...?
