Bloggers against disablism

I'm not convinced that "diablism" is a word, but Her Royal Bloggi-highness, Zoe suggested that I may want to place a post on how I coped with, then overcame my disability. So hear goes.

I'm afraid this wont be too serious, because that is half the secret, I found.

1: Get yourself a mindset that, OK, it's happened, life moves on. PRIORITY No. 1!!

2: Laugh, there's always someone worse off than you. Even able bodied people, (or the normals), as I call you lot.

3: Don't be afraid of morons staring at you, there will be plenty!

4: Get a computer so you can contact various mad, intelligent(some), witty, and LOVELY people in the blogosphere!

5: Chin up, you could be unlucky.......and not be here!

That is the secret of my success. Oh, and don't drive under big dead trees in high winds!!
If this helps anyone, it will have made my day. Good luck.

John you help me just by being you. Please don't throw up. Yesterday I panicked a bit when I got a stiff neck and wondered how i would cope with the house and garden and I thought of you and put a sock in it.
I would sing 'You raise me up.' but I think that would be a step too far.xox

".. the secret of my success ..". Pffft!

Zoe, don't pander to him. He gets plenty of drinks bought for him at t'pub. Takes advantage of poor old pensioners like me!
