Disability is not an excuse

Being classed as disabled does not give you a pass on being an asswhole!
Being disabled does not give you a reason to be a mooch.
I am very qualified to say this because I am disabled. I have Autism, Asthma, Spinal Problems, Dyslexia, Depression and PTSD. Yet, despite the fact I deal with these issues I still work.
For those in the disabled community who can work with adjustments, but decide not to, then you are perpetuating the image that disabled people can't work. You are perpetuating the idea that we should never be able to work or be part of mainstream society.
Do not get me wrong, there are people in the disability community who legitimatly can't work and these people should be protected. For those who can work and choose not to then you are making things worse for those of us who do work.
I want to see more people embracing their disabilitys, whilst also showing people that we can still work as well.
The only way we will break the sterotype that disabled people can not do anything is by proving that we are just as good as those who are not disabled.
