Disability Etiquette?

Disability Etiquette? Tagged with:

If a person has a visible disability like a spinal cord injury or maybe Cerebral Palsy, the world seems to always be watching and asking questions about their disability.  A good friend of mine lives with a spinal cord injury, and I can’t count the number of times that he has gone somewhere or was trying to eat a meal and a stranger stopped to ask him “How did you get hurt?”  In the course of my friendship with him, I have been more than amazed at the number of people who think that it is their right to know how my friend got hurt.  It is as though my friend wears a sign that reads, “Ask me why I am in a wheelchair?”
