Some Summer Ideas For Staying Social

Keeping social can be a challenge especially for people with a visible disability.  Activities for likeminded people, be it disabled or not, can create a source for friendship and that is one of the biggest things I have seen both online and off is the loneliness faced by persons with disabilities.

This post follows a post I wrote about finding activities, that posts speaks from a general tone; this one hopes to speak of the warmer summer months.


The first that comes to mind is swimming, swimming is great exercise and from what I read on other blogs that use this as a regular form of exercise that this becomes a very social time

Horseback Riding

Horseback riding is another thing I enjoyed in the summer I haven’t done this for a number of years as it proved to physically painful from the perspective of my hips.

What do you enjoying doing in the summer?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Often in the summer there will be outdoor concerts and festivals.

    New friends can be made there.

    Yes: swimming can be as social as you want it to be.

    And I found two new bloggy friends/acquaintances:

    Jen who is 17 years old

    Ashley who comes from Newfoundland and is interested in Narrative Therapy

    It would be really great to find summery ideas, especially ones that involve being active or not buying tons of stuff.
