Hello, so sorry you had to go thru that, I never had understood people idea of what they should know or even how to go about asking questions, without the judgement.
I do not look disabled from the outside, I use a cane, but other than that, people would have to see through me to find the problem. I take public transportation, more than once someone has been made to get up so I can sit down, as in our transit system, a medicare card is all you need to get a discount or be able to sit in the very few seats in the front. More than once, someone has mumbled (loud enough for me to hear, but not directly to me) she doesnt look like anything is wrong with her, lose some weight, thats her problem.
First, although I am overweight, I am by no means large enough for that comment, as a matter of fact no one should have to listen to that comment. Like I dont know I could lose a few pounds, secondly, walk in my shoes for one day, and you would be screamin with pain, so shut up. People can be so mean sometimes. But the other side of that is the people every day help me when I am out and about. So I guess it evens out. Those who make the negative comments should beware, Karma is a beast.
Take care of yourself, and congradulation on your upcoming wedding. My youngest is getting married next June 2012, and we have already started the dance of the perfect wedding.
