Invisible Man? Invisible Cloak no Invisible Disabilities
ITV have launched an Invisible Disabilities campaign and about time too. So sorry it is not about the Invisible Man, I use to love that show.
There was a great TV programme on ITV to back the campaign. Showing how people struggle with the lack of understanding and the rude comments you get.
I've had some classics.... here some to name a few....
"The trouble with you... is you are not deaf... you just don't listen."
"You don't look deaf!" "You have eyes don't you"
It is often just a lack of understanding with a sprinkling of stupidity and rudeness.. One of these comments was actually from a trained disability advisor. Rolls eyes and shakes head. I've found that after having counselling, I have to deal with these with humour, explanation, patience... and just move on.
Hopefully, people will learn to understand and we can all be kind in the world.
I am going to continue to nag, so watch out guys..... I am on a mission and help me spread the word.
I realised this is quite a serious blog today, not up to my usual humour so I will leave you with a bit of Pooh Bear....
