I am joining the disability march because my narcolepsy, epilepsy, and chronic pain make it unsafe for my body to join those in D.C. I march for my disabled sons to not only teach them to value their own neurology, but more importantly to fight for those who do not hold the many privileges they were born with.
I am 35, live in Atlanta, and started developing neurological disorders in college. I graduated from Antioch College with a degree in communications. I worked many years at a community PBS station as an editor and producer, but had to chose to stay home with my children as I must carefully allocate my limited energy.
