Redefining Disability Challenge Takes a Sick Day

Each Wednesday, I post my response to a question from the Redefining Disability Challenge. But today I have nothing to share.

For the past five days, I have been home sick with a bad cold which morphed into a sinus and ear infection. I have spent the days being miserable, sitting wrapped in blankets, trying to sleep (which is REALLY difficult when you have congestion and rely on a BiPap).

I am a terrible patient when I am sick. But I took advice from other advocates and did what I had to do to feel better. I’m working on my self-care routines this year and never expected I’d have a reason to practice right away.

The next question in the challenge deals with disability and the media, and requires more attention and energy than I have had this past week. So, I will publish my response next Wednesday.

I am feeling better and might actually leave my house today!
