Hey, I was the cosplayer almost a year ago with the cane-compatible cosplay. I thought you guys would like to see this picture of another costume I did with that in mind. I cosplayed a character from My Little Pony and took it all the way to BronyCon. It ended up getting 2nd in Best Villians category at the costume contest!

I thought you’d like to see this. This was my cosplay for BronyCon 2013. A lot of people complimented the staff, not realizing I actually needed it to walk fully. This costume won second place in my category in the costume contest. So, I guess what I want to say is- I’m going to continue making my cosplays cane-compatible while still being awesome, and that others can do it as well and I highly encourage that they do so

Haven’t taken a decent selfie in ages. I handwrapped the cording of my cane, which I thankfully don’t use as much as I used to. My main disability is my bipolar disorder, though for a while it was a toss-up whether that or my lousy hips and knees were the bigger issue.

Submission to TheLameDame from snouted

Me and my best friend the first time I needed to use a scooter to enjoy the zoo (pain/fatigue).  I don’t always think of myself as Having A Disability and then I remember, that’s called ‘stigma’ and having my best friend with me helps me with THAT too :)

Good friends often make navigating the world easier for me, it’s nice to have someone to create a bubble of fun and happiness with, not to mention someone to help be sassy with strangers when they’re jerks (or maybe that’s just me). You both are adorable and that hat is GREAT, Thanks for the submission!

What is an Invisible Disability?

i-need-that-seat:

I don’t agree with everything in this article (e.g. “just because a person has a disability, does not mean they are disabled”) but a LOT of the info here is informative and easily digestible. (e.g. “Often people think the term, disability, only refers to people using a wheelchair or walker. On the contrary […] 74% of Americans who live with a severe disability do not use such devices.”)


Also I’ve started reading the articles on the Invisible Disabilities Association website and zomg I’m probably gonna start posting them on this blog pretty much nonstop. :)

Haven’t submitted in ages….life’s been kicking my ass.
So my once local pain is now radiating through my whole body.  It sucks.  With the pain I’ve got in my wrists, elbows, and shoulders now, it’s almost impossible to get a bra on at all, and it is always extremely painful.
So, I’ve decided to give bralessness a try!  I’m trying to break out of the internalized misogyny that tells me I need to wear a bra all the time, especially since I’m busty.  I’m layering tanks under my shirts so there are no nip-throughs, but I know there’s this gross idea that it’s “unfeminine” or “brazen” or just not “classy” to go without a bra.  But I don’t give a shit about those things, I give a shit about lessening my pain.
Anybody else had to do this?  Or just do it because of preference?  Bra-removal always was a great part of my day, so I’m feeling pretty satisfied with the decision, at least for now.  Dunno if I’ll be comfortable keeping it up during our 100F-degree summers though….
I only wear a bra when I absolutely have to. I’m usually in layered outfits or wearing a scarf to sortof mask the wobble, and it hasn’t been a problem for me 
Rest Out with your Chest Out ;)

AMEN!

Fantastic!
Same goes for so many other illnesses, and even other forms of cancer…

Raise awareness! Ask questions, look it up, and don’t let any kind of “stigma” keep you from learning and teaching.
