    there ARE those that go through life with a STICK UP THEIR BUTT. These are the folks that dis or not, are never happy.

    you know yr disabled when.....

    *you rely on a ssdi ck to pay your bills (sorry- that one kinda sucked)

    *AB people come up to you and tell you to be careful and stay out of the street LOL

    * everything you seem to want in the store is on the TOP shelf.
    If the Army & the Navy ever look on heavens scenes, they will see the streets are guarded by United States Marines!

    you can't travel without your leg pillow
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    You get separation anxiety when you're transfering into an aisle chair for a flight at the airport, and they start wheeling you or your chair away.
