Gratitude Journal, Day 304

1. I am grateful for how well my spoon theory talk went today in honor of my school’s disability awareness week. I got amazing feedback and I worked really hard!

2. I am grateful for the mental illness awareness project that went on at my school today.

3. I am grateful for the support of my friends and sorority sisters throughout everything I do at school (and in life).

4. I am grateful for my mom, who wins the best mom ever award for being so wonderful and supportive of me in this crazy time with my case (and in life).

5. I am grateful for naps, massages, and all other things I’m doing to take care of myself.


You are the author of your own book. Don’t let others define who you are. It’s important to be yourself and be the best self you can be. Don’t depend on the happiness of others.

Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people.
