A glimpse into the lives of disabled people from all over the world, via Twitter. With added fascinating biogs.

Just seen AWFUL bumper sticker: 'Men are like parking spaces: the good one's [sic] are taken & the rest are handicapped or too small.'

One of my Uni friends said recently that I have too many disabled friends... Um no, but I'm thinking that one less Uni friend will be fine.

A coworker with an ear infection just came up to me and said that now she understands what it's like to be deaf. Uhh, I have no words!
