The constant abuse and harassment from non-disabled people isn’t changing – in fact it’s getting even worse

When I was younger, I didn’t hide away, and would shout back at this public repudiation of my body. But I am tired now, and don’t have as much energy to continue to fight. I don’t work in public any more, or in an office. I rarely swim in a public pool. I limit my public activity and have to brace myself for the comments that come when I do go out.
