Navigating the Space Between Visible and Invisible Disability

Here is another article for you.

I recently started using a rollator (outdoor walker). Before getting this mobility aid I had completely stopped leaving the house by myself, only leaving the house with the assistance of my partner or my parents less than once a week. Since getting my walker, I have been going out at least once a week by myself, and between three to four times a week with the assistance of someone else.

Although my partner and I are often using my walker as more of a wheelchair, this device has given me back a lot of the freedom that had been taken from me. I use the word “taken” because in theory having an illness or impairment should not restrict a person from taking part in society to the extent it does now. We live in a world with the resources, money and technology to create accessible societies, however accessibility is not viewed as a priority by many. People with the privilege of an abled body, particularly those in positions of power choose to ignore issues of accessibili… Read More

Man’s Eyes Turn Blue After 15 Years on Antibiotic for Arthritis

source from: https://themighty.com/2018/04/prolonged-use-antibiotic-arthritis-turned-this-mans-eyes-blue-minocycline/

Here is another wonderful article for you.

Medications can help us function and prevent some illnesses from getting worse. But medications are complicated, and even when they work for you, they may come with side effects that you have to either live with or cause you to go searching for a new medication. Side effects don’t always happen right away, either. Some take months or years to develop.

The whites of a 70-year-old man’s eyes began to turn blue after taking minocycline for over 15 years. The man, who was not named in the case study in The New England Journal of Medicine, was taking the antibiotic to treat his inflammatory arthritis.

The man also had a blue tint on his ears. He did not have any related issues with his vision or eyes, but the blue tint appears to be permanent as his eyes are still blue a year after being diagnosed with minocycline-induced pigmentation.

There are three types of pigmentation caused by long-term antibiotic use. The first, and most common, is blue discolora… Read More

Finding the Perfect Accessible Vehicle

Bet you didn’t know!

Roy Gordon is the type of buyer who does his homework. He researched every wheelchair van manufacturer, store, and checked Craigslist regularly. Recently, his wife Kelly’s mobility has become restricted, and Roy wanted to make sure they found the best vehicle for their needs. Last month, they found the right wheelchair accessible solution at MobilityWorks in Saginaw, Michigan.

Throughout his search process, Roy had been in touch with Dale Bills, General Manager of MobilityWorks, on a regular basis. Roy wanted to make sure that he had done all of the necessary research to ensure he was going to find a safe and reliable vehicle at the right price. One of the conditions he had, was that the van had to be a Dodge or Chrysler, due to the fact that Roy’s brother worked there for many years.

Disabled couple. Is/should this be normal?

Here is another touching article for you.

I'm getting married in three months and right now I'm starting to question everything. We're both disabled and are expecting our support needs to change massively once we get hitched. He literally has a team of support workers. As in, at least four people including live-in overnight carer. My family and I have been screaming for support for decades. The only way I'm getting any support at all is by marrying into it. He can't drive and thinks he never will. I'm finally working towards my restricted license at 28. The only way he's getting transport is to marry into it. I'm physically disabled with a vertical driveway and two flights of stairs to my front door. He owns his own house. The only way I can get disability accessible housing, let alone own one in my lifetime is to marry into it. Sometimes I'm convinced this is an arranged marriage of convenience.

His team were surprised I've never heard of some of the supports he has…. Read More
