10 Advantages to Being Disabled

1) I always have a seat
I am in a powered wheelchair so I always have somewhere to sit

2) I never have to go to the bar or buy a round
Getting near the bar in a wheelchair is near impossible

3) I never feel pressured to go to the gym
The only sixpack that I have contains tablets

4) I don’t feel pressured to wear the latest fashions
Mind you I don’t think I ever had

5) I never have to talk to people if don’t want too
They assume I can’t speak or I am having a bad day

6) I can always have a beer as I never have to be the one to drive home

7) I never have to cook, wash the dishes or make a brew
Being paralysed from the neck down means the above is impossible.

8) I never get hassled by street vendor’s
many assume that I am can’t communicate or I am skint

9) I don’t have to use public toilets
Mind you disabled toilets are quite often left in a mess with dirty nappies et cetera by irresponsible parents

10) if I feel mischievous I can shout what I want and no one will say a word



The above are my opinions on my own disability and the way people interact with me

  • Don’t forget the best one of all – handicapped parking spaces.

    • They are a blessing and also a curse. When I first became disabled it wasn’t obvious by looking at me. Consequently I was frequently verbally lashed by OAPs. They seem to have the opinion that they are reserved for retired people.
