London: What would bleating entail for you?

Its important for me to be heard, if I can! That I am not complaining about being disabled. I am GLAD I have CP. I believe it has brought me a lot of insight to the human condition and beauty and norms and deepened my empathy and thinking in a way that MAY not have been possible had I been abled.

My "chip on my shoulder" hasn't come from just complaining about the way people treat me but having to actually fight for a lot of rights - particularly in the teaching job market, and I guess it's my calling to fight for the rights of other disabled people too. Or just tell my story. If you look around people are very resistant to hearing a story about disability.
