It’s an interesting and provocative question.
One that author Erica Mones brings up in her new article: “I Refer to Myself as Disabled, Because My Disability Is Central to Who I Am.”
I think each of us will react differently and defend our decision in a unique and personal way.
Hence, the reason for this article.
Does your disability define you or are you defined by your disability?
One of my favorite quotes which I came across years ago (I can’t remember where) is:
Disabled = Dis+abled.
And that is where I stand.
