Disability Blog

This millennial disability blog was recommended to me–it’s good writing with a fresh perspective. Check it out!

From the author: I’m twenty-one years old and my name is Leah. I grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado until I was eighteen. Currently, I am living with my family and going to school to become an English high school teacher. I was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis at age eight.

Thoughts on summer: “During the summer, my constant state of tired can no longer be hidden as well as I would like. In the summer, people find it weird to stay in bed instead of run around outside in the heat…which sounds like my personal hell. As much as I love things that go with summer (smoothies, lemonade, shorts, flip flops, the pool, etc) I loathe the heat purely because I can’t cool down enough with my long locks pinned to my head and my poodle hair becoming more obvious. I’d much rather snuggle my lovely pillows until the sun goes down and feel my burst of energy late in the evening.”

  1. Thank you for your words, Leah. I am having a difficult summer with my RA, and your essay gave me pause. Perhaps we try so hard to match up and fit in that the summer’s balmy breezes remind us to lie down and just be. I’ll keep you in my thoughts.
