Here are some of the invisible aspects of my visible disability.
This was inspired by Robyn Lambird, who did a similar video a few weeks ago.
(Also, video content takes so long to make – so if you find this useful, please like, share, comment and save!)
Video: a woman with a red face, short dark curly hair talking to a camera at a table. She’s wearing a hot pink gumnut babies print top under a neon leopard print jacket, and gumnut babies and yellow lillipilli brooches. There are captions on the video. The transcript is: “I have a visible disability.
But here’s what you’re not seeing:
The inability to regulate my body’s temperature, the iItching, the pain, the shame of the skin I leave behind, the exhaustion from other people’s ableism, curiosity and discrimination. Not all disabilities are visible. But not all aspects of visible disabilities are visible either.”
