#disabilityawareness

It's world polio day today! As a survivor of polio and one who sadly live with its devastating effect, I join other survivor to celebrate today and to also create awareness on the disease.
Polio a potentially infectious and crippling disease. It still doesn't have a cure unfortunately but there are safe and effective vaccines.
Please protect your child. .... every child as a matter of fact by immunizing every child until transmission stops and the world is polio FREE.
Currently, Nigeria does not have any record of polio case which is a good thing. I hope we continue to fight this deadly and fatal disease.
Join us to continue to educate women, men, young, old, friends, neighbours and everyone that polio can be prevented through immunization.

دنیای کودکان دارای مشکل اوتیسم.
این داستان پسری است که برای مدت طولانی شروع به صحبت نکرد، این پسر دوست دارد همیشه، همه چیز به یک صورت ثابت بماند و هر تغییر غیر منتظره میتواند این پسر را بترساند و ناراحت کند. مکانهای ناشناخته برایش مکانهای دوستانه نیست، این پسر خیلی به صدا ها و نورها حساس است و سعی میکند مکان مخفی را بدون انها برای خود بسازد و در ان مکان مخفی شود. این پسر دوست ندارد به چشمان کسی نگاه کند و این به این معنی نیست که این پسر بی ادب است، فقط از نگاه کردن به چشمان کسی احساس راحتی نمیکند. و شاید بعضی وقتها دلش بخواهد دستانش را تکان دهد و بالا و پایین ببرد. فهمیدن این نشانه ها و اقدامات زود رس ممکن است باعث یک عمر تغییر در این کودکان بشود.

I’ve realised a lot of people seem to be confused about why I’m sometimes in a wheelchair and sometimes not so here is a very brief (and as un-medical as I can make it) explanation: I have two disabilities, one affects my soft tissues and the other my nerves. The soft tissue part means I often dislocate my limbs and I’m so floppy if I fall over I’ll tear my muscles rather than break my bones. The nerve part of my disability means that when I do get an injury the nerves in that part of my body will paralyse and cause great pain. BUT they do generally always get better 😊 Last week I slipped over on a wet pavement because I’m also hideously stubborn and kept holding the dog lead when I should have given it to Claudia. Genius idea. I tore some muscles in my legs and bum as I fell and now don’t have full range of motion in them. They’ll probably be a bit floppy for a few more days and in the meantime I’m loving having my wheelchair to easily glide around in ♥️ So, sometimes I’m in a wheelchair, sometimes I’m on crutches, sometimes I have wrist splints but I’m still chirpy, happy me regardless. Don’t panic if you see me in my chair, it’s an amazing piece of equipment that I love and couldn’t be without so I’m generally pretty pleased to have it as an option!

Today was the first day since the surgery that I woke up feeling a little bit better! I am in bed in a lot of pain now but it was really nice to have a few hours of relief. I put some makeup on and went and caught up with some friends, it was really really nice. Hopefully there will be a lot more days like this :)

Survival of the fittest. --- Gosh, I never realized how damaging that phrase could be. In undergrad, science profs preach it to the masses like some kind of darwinian prophecy. From a biological perspective, the concept of "fitness" basically states that individuals with traits that allow them to thrive in their current environment will have the most reproductive success. But from a social perspective, one might argue that in the 21st century, survival of the fittest warrants capitalistic ideologies and promotes economic competition. So basically, it comes down to survival of the financially fittest. People with disabilities don't win either way.

I am always taken aback by how awkwardly able-bodied folk approach disability. Especially with "invisible illnesses" like marfans and scoliosis. Vulnerabilities are seen as weaknesses that may potentially be exploited, rather than strengths thru adversity that increase our diversity. I can't even begin to count how many times I've heard, "you don't look sick/disabled". Even in medicine, a field made up of individuals who make a profession out of compassion, there is this toxic culture of perfection. Screw perfection. We need to do better. Adversity opens doors. It connects us on the greater stream of a collective consciousness. I might not be the MVP in darwinian evolutionary fitness scales because of my disability. But my disability makes me a better person. So take that darwin 🖖

It’s already our last day of #SpoonieYogaTribe 😭😭😭
I have loved getting to connect with all of you! Thank you for sharing your stories with us! And thank you to my #spooniesisters @theycallmegumby @life.with.kimberli and @weall_floaton for co-creating such a beautiful yoga challenge! 💖🥄

For our final day we have one of my favorites: Supta Baddha Konasana, reclining bound angle pose. I do this pose allllll the time! I especially love to do it in bed to help recirculate stagnant energy if I’ve been stationery for a long time. Feel free to prop yourself up with whatever support feels good. For those of you who joined our challenge late, not to worry. Take all the time you need catching up. We will be announcing winners this Saturday 🤗

🔸 QOTD: WHAT POSITIVE CHANGES WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE IN THE IG YOGA COMMUNITY? 🔸I would definitely like to see more diversity! But not at the expense of edging others out. I feel like there is a tendency for us in the yoga community to divide ourselves into “us” and “them.” We like to call our own style of yoga “real yoga,” and everybody who is doing something different is wrong. Funny how a practice of diminishing the ego has become so egotistical 😅 And I’ve seen disabled yogis do this too. Those of us with chronic illnesses and disabilities have been marginalized for so long, and it is easy to become resentful and turn around and do the same thing to others. I encourage you to stay soft my friends. It’s ALL yoga. We are all REAL yogis. Let’s celebrate that together. There is space for all of us in this community. We can all lift each other up without losing our footing.🔸

Polio merupakan penyakit infeksi yang disebabkan oleh virus yang dapat menyebabkan kelumpuhan. Bila tidak dicegah dengan vaksin, penyakit ini dapat mengancam nyawa. Virus polio adalah virus RNA kecil yang terdiri atas tiga galur berbeda dan amat menular. Virus akan menyerang sistem saraf dan kelumpuhan dapat terjadi dalam hitungan jam. Polio menyerang tanpa mengenal usia, namun 50 % kasus terjadi pada anak berusia antara 3 hingga 5 tahun. Masa inkubasi polio dari gejala pertama berkisar dari 3 hingga 35 hari. Polio adalah penyakit menular yang dikategorikan sebagai penyakit peradaban. Polio menular melalui kontak antarmanusia. Seperti banyak penyakit menular lainnya, polio menyerang ibu muda, ibu hamil, dan orang-orang dengan sistem kekebalan tubuh lemah. Mereka yang belum diberikan vaksin polio juga bisa terkena penyakit ini.

Penyandang disabilitas karena polio tetap bisa hidup layaknya manusia pada umumnya. Mereka berhak dihormati dan dihargai serta berhak mendapatkan akses dan kesempatan yang setara dalam segala bidang kehidupan, termasuk dalam bidang pendidikan dan kesempatan kerja. Mari kita tidak hanya mewujudkan dunia bebas polio, namun juga dunia yang bebas diskriminasi bagi penyandang disabilitas karena polio!

Down Syndrome Awareness Month
Day 23

October 23

Despite the gains of disability awareness, people still use the R-WORD.
To support disabilities and Down Syndrome awareness, if you have not yet, make the pledge to stop using the R-word.

Yes to dessert for lunch. Six salads worth of greens🥗 and superfoods to help me get my life together. It's been a very rough morning! Leo is having a very hard day. His progress review was a shit show of tantrums lol. Luckily I learned some techniques that should be helpful for my sanity as well as his. Autism was never something I thought would be a part of my journey as a mother. I am glad however that I get to learn along with him. I too am a work in progress. Today is hard.
#Autismmoms and #autismdads talk about your struggles as well as your truimphs! It helps tremendously just to voice it or write it down. Works better than a glass of wine.😂🍷
