    My sister is in a relationship

    and I'm not. I always get the "pretty disabled girl" title. Why can't it just be pretty girl? I don't know. It's bothering me lately.

    I have Spina Bifida and therefore I use a

    wheelchair to get around. I am very independent and ambitious and always doing things which is why I say I have a disability but I am not disabled. I don't let the chair stop me from living the life I want to live.
