What was the Point of Darwin Post?

We Do What We Gots to Do

The message that I tried to share was: if you are disabled, you had best adapt. Not sure of the alternatives, but I can say with authority that it includes a less than full life.

I have faced a couple challenges as I descended into disability. Some were pretty ugly, they knocked me down hard, in some cases. Not sure, I may well still be belly up on some of them.

That was never my plan. Nonetheless, it may have taken a decade or more of denial before I came to terms with the idea that I could use some help.

Though, I am a bit clever. Some of my adaptations are simple, getting a disabled parking placard, for example. Some take a bit more effort and/or money. I have gone both ways, as appropriate.

I am planning to post some examples of things that I have done to help me to live my best life. This first one cost nothing- simple, ordinary spare parts as you might find in any house. I needed help getting my wheel chair back after my shower. This is what I did.

I am just a guy with a disease called adrenomyeloneuropathy. I want other guys with the disease to see the good parts of disability. Not the gloom. Not the doom. Make sense?
