Invisible Disabilities Week

Invisible-Disabilities-Week-2017-October-15-thru-21-2017-1024x1024

Wear themed jewelry?  I don’t know if I want to loose compete control over who knows and who doesn’t know. On some days dealing with the stigmas are very hard to keep civil, like days I’m falling and someone saying I shouldn’t drink during the day…
