I’m so behind on my mommyblogging… but things are lovely, Moomin is cute and obsessed with comic books and Godzilla and stories even more so than last I checked, and I’m about to take off tomorrow for BlogHer.
I wanted to leave a quick note in case anyone didn’t notice already to say,
I use a wheelchair, please try to control your surprise or dismay or pity or curiosity! It is very boring to talk about it endlessly at a conference where I’d rather talk about blogging and tech and feminism! Sooooo if you are madly curious, look on my other blogs and find out what is up, I’m fine, I’m okay, I have been disabled before for long periods of time. I am happy to play poster child and pop a wheelie for your camera or even let you play in my chair a little bit if I am settled somewhere comfortable.
I just want to avoid the barrage of questions and intrusion and hijacking of my brain! I am used to the chair… I use a cane sometimes too… I do not want to know about your acupuncturist, your chiropractor, your back surgery really… REALLY… nor how “brave” i am… and usually I do not want a push, or a door opened, or anything…. I will ask if I need things.
JUST DEAL WITH IT
LET IT GO
WE HAVE OTHER THINGS TO TALK ABOUT
Unless you are in bed with me you just dont need to know my medical history!
And you can find it all out on teh Internetz if you stalk me properly, anyway!
That is all!
Disability poster child blogger mom signing out!
