For anyone unfamiliar with The Mighty, it’s a great website where individuals affected (whether directly or indirectly) by disability, disease, chronic illness or mental illness share their stories of triumph as well as difficulties. It’s also a great website to dispel stereotypes and educate the public about your disability/disease/mental illness. It’s a great community and whether or not you are affected by disability, I recommend checking it out! I love being able to read other’s stories that, although they may not relate to my life, they help me better understand the daily life of another.
Below are links to a couple of my articles, although I have also written others.
