January 20th is The International Day of Acceptance

I am letting you know about The International Day of Acceptance early in case people would like to blog or tweet about it.  I will also blog about it on that day.

As people with disabilities we have rights, opinions, interests and lives.  We can make a difference in the world and have a voice.

If you are a family member or friend with someone in your life who is disabled, you can help too by telling the world that you accept us, and you can make an impact in our lives by demonstrating your acceptance to others.  You can write, blog or tweet about your loved one too, talk about misconceptions about disabled people and the challenges that we face.

I really love this website’s attitude.  Some of their slogans are:

Wheelchairs are sexy!

I don’t live disabled.  I live.

Love Life.

I hope you can join me.  Participation in any small way will make a difference.

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
