Those Who are Challenged

Dear Ariel,
It is good that you speak up on the issues of those who are physically, mentally, or emotionally challenged, and very good that you "take up the slack" in support of your husband. I see a lot of dysfunctional families, so it pleases my heart well to see good spousal support. =)
grace & peace to you,
dave

[my apologies to Richard; i did overwrite yesterday, but our host is most gracious,
and cut me more slack than i deserve. => ]

I have sort of the same dynamic writing about my husband and High Functioning Autism. When things are easy and good, there's nothing to write about it. When things aren't, I feel like it's none of anyone's business.

That said, the issues around it in a mroe general way are really interesting. I probably should write about them more.

Since my child is relatedly low functioning and autistic, this are issues near and dear to my heart.

It never hurts to have more people try to look at issues from someone else's perspective.

When my child was younger and it was not so apparent that she was autistic, I got lots of disapproving stares when she would throw a tantrum. Someone even once said something about my inability to control my child.

Thanks much. You're right that there are some amazing bloggers of disability issues on my blogroll. My current faves are ballastexistenz on autism, mostly, and Wheelchair Dancer, often on, heh, wheelchairs and dancing, but also very thoughtful generally.

Hi,
Very inspiring post for me.To be mentally challenged, or to have a developmental disability, is to be confronted with a cognitive, emotional or physical impairment, especially one related to abnormal sensory or motor development.

Wow, a really simple and effective tutorial! I'm just getting started with GIMP so I had to find out how to do some things but overall a great tutorial!
