Last fall I bought a used scooter. It was a really big step for me accepting my disability. The past two weeks our weather has warmed up and so I’ve been getting a lot of use out of the scooter. It’s been such a freeing thing to be able to say “let’s go for a bike ride!” I might be exhausted but getting onto the scooter and following after my kids is possible and I love it. I still struggle with identity but I will always remind myself that this is a gift I can’t take forgranted. I don’t want to spend my motherhood indoors afraid of trying to go out with my kids because of how much pain and exhaustion it causes. This year I’m ready to get out.

Tell me how you’ve adapted life for parenting with a disability. #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #RheumatoidArthritis #MarfanSyndrome #TarlovCysts #SpinalCSFLeak #pseudomeningocele
