Do you know what the secret ingredient to a delicious meal is? SATISFACTION! And we reckon that comes from playing a part in the meal prep itself (also the sound of that carrot being peeled!) Here Leeann, who we work alongside in Supported Independent Living (SIL) in Murray Bridge, is working with our Possible Person Emma to prep veggies for a slow cooker. ThisIsActiveSupport Emma uses a fork so that Leeann can safely peel right to the top of the carrot! They are totally living the Cara values WeAreCareful and WeDiscoverAndCreate. We love it!

National Parks are meant for everyone, and nobody should be deprived of their beauty and grandeur because of limited mobility. Many National Parks in the USA had steep trails that made them nearly impossible for those in wheelchairs. But this all changed in 1990 with the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Parks started to build wheelchair-accessible trails, more accessible campgrounds, and opened exhibits and accommodations that are wheelchair-friendly. . . . . . #accessibility   #disability   #disabilityawareness   #wheelchairlife   #wheelchairuser   #wheelchair   #wheelchairaccessible   #wheelchairlifestyle   #disabilityrights   #wheelchairtravel   #limitedmobility   #accessibility   #accessibilitymatters   #accessibilityforall   #wheelchairlifestyle   #winnebagolife   #wheelchairuser   #accessiblenature   #winnebago   #winnebagolife   #USA   #ADA   #nationalparks   #USNationalParks   #accessibleparks  

Abraham spent two years on the Rebuild Upstate waiting list before volunteers came to replace the back decking, build new stairs and a landing to the kitchen, and repair floor in the kitchen. The repairs by Rebuild Upstate volunteers have changed his life profoundly. “I can get up in the morning and don’t even put shoes or socks on so I can feel the floor. I can bring groceries right into the kitchen instead of through the back door.”

It's the little details that make the big things possible. Take our LED lighted ramps, for example. Navigation into and out of your vehicle never felt so safe and simple any time of day or night. . . . #prioritymobility   #mobility   #wheelchair   #wheelchairvan   #wheelchairvehicle   #wheelchairaccessible   #wheelchairlife   #accessibility   #driveforinclusion   #disability   #abilitynotdisability   #wheelchairuser   #wheelchairtravel   #inclusion   #inclusionmatters   #elderly   #elderlycare   #seniorcare   #assistedliving   #LED   #LightedRamp  

A few snaps from on our recent trip out to Montana with @accessunltd , a not for profit org that creates outdoor rec opportunities for those living with SCI and/or TBI. Ri and I have been humbled to be in the presence of all of the people who volunteer their time, energy, and good karma to make these trips happen. And when I look at these pictures and reflect on the impact these moments have had in my/our life over the last few years, I can say definitively that they have shifted pretty much everything in alllll the good ways. I’ve mentioned this before, but if you’re new here this is a bit of our background. Ri and I met 6 years ago, when I showed up at his house to give him an acupuncture treatment. I didn’t know exactly what I was walking into and as it turns out, I walked in and met the love of my life. And because Riley is quadriplegic, I also walked into an education about what living with a spinal cord injury is really like. At the time Ri and met, he was consumed by physical pain and was simultaneously working long hours to keep his roof over his head. He was also managing his full time care team. You could say Ri was surviving, but so very far from thriving. And he most definitely was not thinking about his next fly fishing trip, let alone any outdoor excursion, though given his background, that is exactly the kind of therapy he desperately needed because my acupuncture needles don’t have the power to heal a heart that is broken due to a lost a connection to the outdoors. And then somewhere in there, right around the time when Ri’s pain was easing up a bit and there was a sliver of space to consider such a thing, Ri was invited along on a fly fishing trip. Despite his hesitations, he couldn’t help but say yes. We went, and pretty much as soon as Ri got back out on the river he remembered how to be the fisherman that he always been. And I learned how to be the fisherwoman that I always knew I would be! And everything started to shift as the wheels in our brains began to turn…

Last week I posted about our trip to the zoo, which turned sour at the carousel. Once I was put in touch with the appropriate people to speak with, this was the response! * All I asked for was to have the carousel attendant trained in the proper way to board and unboard a wheelchair. I didn't imagine having new protocols put in place (already in the handbook according to the follow up email) or a wheelchair entrance added. * Hogle Zoo went above and beyond my expectations to make their zoo even more accessible. Huge kudos to them for taking my experience and really using it to better the zoo. #wheelchair   #wheelchairuser   #wheelchairlife   #wheelchairaccessible   #accessible   #accessibility   #wheelchairmom   #capable   #spoonie   #spoonielife   #tarlovcystdisease   #tarlovcyst   #cyster   #dysautonomia   #POTS   #POTSlife   #potsie   #hoglezoo   #dysabilityfriendly

Did I REALLY go somewhere if I didn’t take a mirror selfie? The answer is absolutely not. This one was taken in @3arenadublin for a Walking On Cars concert a little while ago. The accessibility team in 3Arena deserve a lot of praise. They’ve always been so friendly and accommodating. Hats off to them, they make the experience so easy.

One in four people in this country (61 million) have some type of disability. That means that we are all responsible for this community because quite simply it’s made up of the people we love and interact with daily. Disability does not discriminate or put up icons to show progress. In the past I have found myself in the position of and now know that I am NOT a Poster Boy. Being fortunate enough to be called forward every time the diversity conversation is bold enough to include disability is not the only progress this community needs. Being a Poster Boy implies that my image and identity epitomize or represents a specific cause or quality. When that cause or quality is disability it’s impossible for anyone to represent the entire population and spectrum. I do not epitomize disability the same way you don’t epitomize the human race. We are each our own advocate and responsibility and incredibly lucky if we find support beyond that. My ask is that you just simply keep an open mind and an open heart when you go out of your way to be there for someone in need. Someday it might just be you! My point is… As Andrea often reminds me we are all more alike than we are different, this is the acknowledgement that I believe will pull our collective efforts together in this social awakening. @lumis_memorie 📸 #areyouwithus   #disabilityvisability   #equality   #paralysis   #sci   #paralyzed   #disabilityvisability   #disabilityawareness   #inclusion   #seeus   #disabledpeoplearehot   #wheelchairlife   #quadriplegia   #thefutureisaccessible   #wheelchairdontcare   #tetraplegia   #paraplegia   #loveislove   #weareallunique   #accessibility   #wheelchair   #disabilitypride   #socialchange  

Today I got kicked out of a store for not having registration papers for my fully trained service dog. Registration papers that aren’t even real, papers that people buy online and papers that the ADA law state are illegal to ask for. I tried explaining to the store that those were not real and that it was illegal to require them but they just talked over me and refused to listen. Told me I wasn’t allowed in the store until I brought registration paperwork. McGee was perfectly behaved and does multiple tasks for me daily that allow me to live my life better. I shouldn’t be harassed by businesses when all I want to do is buy a drink. I shouldn’t have to worry about being triggered into an episode because a business thinks harassing me and demanding fake paperwork is legal to do. Something needs to change. Too many people with their registered fake service dogs are making it impossibly hard for disabled handlers with their legal service animals to be allowed the access they deserve. This is too much and it’s disgusting we have to go through this.

Trying is progress.

Me? Neutrals? I suppose it happens now and then, usually with a little hint of blue 😂 I wanted to make sure my panthatpalette2019 doesn’t get ignored while I’m playing with my new palettes. I’m not crazy about this shadow look, but I am quite happy with my skin and lip products have been looking lately. I’ve been playing around with different techniques and products, and I’m loving the result! It’s been an interesting journey figuring out how to pan products that aren’t my favorites, without my face looking like a hot mess every day. 😂 I’m getting there! . . . Do you Project Pan?

Thanks to Penguin Canada for this review copy! Wicked Fox has taken its place as one of my favourite books of all time since reading it last month. This is a story about nine-tailed fox demon Miyoung who has to go on a mission to reunite herself with her misplaced soul bead, with a lazy yet warm-hearted classmate, Jihoon. The writing is rich, the characterization is dynamic, and the plot is fast-paced and exciting!

STORY TIME!! So I was at the OC fair, already bought tickets, was in line and transferring out of my wheelchair to go up a few steps to get on a ride only for a guy to stop me and ask where my “wristband” is. We stopped at numerous people before even getting to the ride and none of them told me I would need an extra wristband because I am in a wheelchair. So I was stopped from going on a ride by the workers who I specifically said “so basically I am not allowed to go on because I have a disability” and she goes “yes”.... thats just sad. So I left to go somewhere where I will have ADA accessibility and not spending my money there anymore. Even after I got kicked off of the ride, they sent me to about 5-7 different people just to figure out what this wristband was... I understand that they do not want to be responsible for injuries etc. but at least treat your costumers with respect. @oc_fair please treat people with disabilities better 🙄

panthatfacepalette | June Update . . . So this is going surprisingly well! 😂 💋 I’m a face powder junkie, so my @bennyemakeup powder is going super fast. It’s only 3 grams, so it’s pretty easy to get through! When I finish it, I’ll probably put another one in from a different project, just to keep everything in the same palette 😊 💋 my @tartecosmetics bronzer has started to flatten out at the top. I’m hoping I’ll hit a little baby Pan this month 😁 💋 as mentioned in my first post, I decided to switch out the blush(es). I was finishing a different blush for the first month, and after seeing how quick my powder was going, I decided to switch two of these Ben nye blushes in. Now I have a warm and cool toned option, and I’m hoping I can start decreasing the number of blushes I have in my collection. These both have some good use on them already, so I think I can hit pan on one or both of these this month for sure. 😊 💋 The Tarte highlighter got a surprisingly big dip in it this month! Highlighter is SO hard for me to get through, but having it in this palette makes it much easier to use everyday. Jury’s out if I can hit pan this month or not 🤷🏼‍♀️ we’ll see! 😁 (Edit - if you saw my stories yesterday you’re probably confused 😅 I took these photos last week and haven’t had a chance to post them yet 😬 so some good progress has been made! But I decided to post these anyway, hope you don’t mind. 😊)

Hi, this is Pink Donut talking 🍩😂! Seriously tho, this is really useful. Power wheelchairs aren’t waterproof, so if I get caught by rain, lots of rain, that’s not really the best thing. My BiPAP can’t get wet either, so for a long time I was wondering what can I do to protect all of the electricity. I came across this very pink raincoat and I was actually impressed. It covered my whole wheelchair, which no thing before did. I always carry it with me in my backpack - you never know when it starts raining with this weather. Anyway, this was just a quick tip 😅.

As strong as I am in my pride as a disabled person, there is an shame that comes and goes. What's helped me is learning the medical and social models of disability. They've completely changed the way I looked at myself and my own disability. The Medical Model labels the disability as a problem that needs to be cured, caused by the disabled person. Any act of accommodation is a charity given to the disabled person. The medical model teaches me that I am broken, need to be fixed, and should be grateful whenever I am included. The Social Model labels society’s barriers as the problem. It sees disability as just another normal condition in life, and that the true disability comes from lack of accessibility in society. It recognizes that it is society’s responsibility to organize, accommodate, and include. It does not want to fix me, it wants to fix my world. Medical Model: leaves me feeling broken and useless, like I wasn’t trying hard enough to get better, and guilty for asking for help. All that matters are my diagnoses and making me as “normal” as I can be. Social Model: I can ask for accommodations because they aren’t any different than anyone else’s needs. Labels don’t matter as much as the things I can do, and the things that will help me. “Trying harder” isn’t even a factor: this is who I am and how I best live. Medical model, society is slower to adapt and accommodate. Disability is a defining negative trait, and one that must be conquered by any means necessary. If the disabled person can’t become “less disabled”, then accommodating for that in any way is going above and beyond, giving charity to someone who may not even deserve it. Social model, society adapts faster because society is the disability. When society accommodates, disability is no longer a factor. I don’t need to focus on getting out of this wheelchair and walking again. I can focus on my strengths and talents, on what’s important. There is no "normal"; we are all just human. I don’t need to feel guilty about asking for accommodations; everyone requires them in some form. Being disabled doesn’t mean my needs suddenly are a burden. Society is what needs to catch up. I’m just me.

Son and mum time. Family is so important

Live and make mistakes they sometimes teach you the greatest lessons.

According to the 2012 U.S. Census Bureau report there are roughly 15.2 million people in the USA that use wheelchairs, canes, crutches, or walkers for mobility. This is precisely why we created our new Accessibility Enhanced RVs. We want everyone to be able to travel and see the world in comfort and style no matter their physical ability. Our Accessibility Enhanced RVs are fitted with powerful wheelchair lifts, roll-in showers, wider hallways, remote-controlled roof vents, and many other accessible features. . . . . . #accessibility   #disability   #disabilityawareness   #wheelchairlife   #wheelchairuser   #wheelchair   #wheelchairaccessible   #wheelchairlifestyle   #disabilityrights   #wheelchairtravel   #limitedmobility   #accessibility   #accessibilitymatters   #accessibilityforall   #wheelchairlifestyle   #winnebagolife   #wheelchairuser   #accessiblenature   #winnebago   #winnebagolife   #seetheworld   #traveltheworld   #traveler  

Remember when Lucy created a slide show for me to send to @apple asking them to improve the accessibility functions on the iPad so she could use it with her @gonumotion @permobilpower power chair joystick?!? Well, they responded so quickly and we went back and forth with questions, answers and videos, etc. for a couple of weeks and today we got this email! {swipe}. Lucy giggled as I read it to her and she can’t even wait for the iOS 13 update to be released. Thank you, @apple !! #goodjoblucy   #accessibility   #techgirl
