This is my post for "Blogging Against Disablism Day 2011"
As promised here I would make an entry about how the internet is one of the greatest advances for the disabled community. The internet has many benefits for the disabled community.
-Easy it is to access and share information about your disability. I'm a member of support groups for my disability and I get a wealth of information on how to manage my disability from there.
-Easier means for scientists and researchers to contact people to make medical advances. I've met several researchers working on curing my disease and I've donated some of my removed tumors to science.
-Social aspects, I get to talk to people when I'm normally too weak or in too much pain to leave the house.
-DISTRACTIONS, when I'm in pain there's no better cure than some LOLcats and a stupid YouTube video.
-The internet brings the world to my fingertips when I would not normally be able to excess it.
Here's an article on how the internet impacts people with disabilities.
Crippie's Tippie- "Charlie The Unicorn" is the best video on YouTube... ever. I know this isn't much of a tip, but people need to know these things.
Crippie's Actual Tippie- To all of my fellow cripples, we cannot and we will not let our disabilities get the best of us. Sure, our lives will be more challenging but there is no way in hell that I am going to let my disability stop me from doing what I have to do.
