    Used To Hate It

    It's The Worst Thing In My Life

    It is difficult to know where to start on the topic of disability. It casts it shadow over the whole of my existence. Being disabled is awful. Truly awful. The disabled of this world are rejected, forgotten, and pitied as second class citizens. Think: when was the last time you...

    I enjoy being alone. I am able to entertain myself in ways I can't when I'm around others. But I hate being lonely and left or forgotten. That causes a person to be lonely.
