People are clueless about disabled people. We are paid subpar wages and are not allowed to make a decent income in order to remain eligible to receive care. This is a stupid rule! People shouldn’t accept it. A person’s care shouldn’t be tied to employment and income. Society wants the disabled to have fulfilled lives. A job gives a disabled person self-confidence. No one gave me a job! But I have built a career through the years. I persevered with the help of my dear friends. There were times that I wanted to quit. Isn’t that what the American dream about?
