Harry potter fans are all too familiar with the invisibility cloak and frankly, so am I, thanks to the visibility of my cerebral palsy I am left with the feelings of social invisibility that rears its ugly head when lack of time and understanding creates a social divide. The sad but very real reality is that that as visible as my wheelchair makes my disability it is also the gap that can separate me from meaningful social interaction with my peers.
As I have gotten older, this has seemed to improve adults seem to have more patience and although they may not immediately understand something, they have a willinthat thatgness to learn that the younger folks simply don’t have the time for. I recognize is a gross generalization on my part, but the point still remains the same, often understanding comes with age.
Do you find your disability makes you invisible and how do you think we can help others over come this?
