It’s been a tough few days for my daughter.
Wren has to wear braces due to her cerebral palsy and they have been giving her sores, so she hasn’t been wearing them since Friday.
Yesterday she was crying at the playground out of frustration because she was unable keep up with her siblings who were running and climbing, and was sad that she is only one that had to wear braces.
It’s been a tough few days for me.
Today I cried at the ketamine clinic because I was frustrated that I need a weekly infusion to mentally keep up with everyone else. I need medicine due to my depression or my brain turns to suicidal ideation + self harm, and I start to shut down.
Both disabilities are valid and need to be talked about.
Be well, be kind, end the stigma.
