hope your all as well as you can be.
i just wanted to say about somthing that happened to me last wednesday whilst out on my twiuce yearly shopping trip with my carer.
i went to shop mobility (great servive they provide i think) and whilst travelling in the mobility scooter on way up to highstreet an older lady around 60’s or 70’s literally was really angry i said sorry as thought maybe im in her way and then whilst i was on scooter still she shoved me and punched me very hard in the arm , my carer and me were stunned as i was all day. the lady didnt have mobilty problems as she had no stick or anything and then marched off. as a young person at 34 now i feel i get this kind of thing alot from older people only if im honest. thought they would be the ones with patience and compassion.
ive never had a pysical assult and i was glad she didnt have a stick which i said to my carer laughing at lunch to try and lighten it a bit but still i feel really delicate now and worried that through no fault of my own because im disabled because of MS and now am registred as sight impared too i am going to keep being treated this way.
i know this sodding unelected gov have been pivitol in changing the publics opinions of those with disability as well as the media shouldnt maybe the ms society and other disability groups be trying to help change the publics perseption for the better?? just an idea.
