If you feel like giving up, talk to someone! You are more loved than you know. ♥️ It’s really hard living with a chronic illness, chronic pain, mental illness. But you have to keep fighting, because one day there will be a cure. And the more we RAISE AWARENESS for our conditions, like #EhlersDanlosSyndrome or #depression, the more people we will inspire to FIGHT for our cause, FIGHT against chronic illness, and FIGHT for a cure. So never, ever, ever give up. Raise awareness instead. ♥️🎗🦓🥄

Friends...Thalid & Mide
... Just trying to raise awareness....
Today Thalid & Mide want to talk about driving.
Another challenge for both Thalid & Mide,
Thalid & Mide both don’t drive a car, even though they would love too.
When Thalid was young and eager to go and learn to drive, it never happened. When she went to apply for her learners permit she was told “People like you don’t drive”. She argued her case then they came up with the idea that if she could prove to them that she could drive then they would give her a learner’s permit, that is impossible, as you can’t get into a car to learn to drive if you don’t have a learner’s permit. She argued some more but in the end, gave up with their stupidity and lack of vision. In saying that Thalid’s wonderful hubby taught her to drive on a property, which she thoroughly enjoyed doing and managed quite well.
Mide on the other hand, did get her license when she was young, but she doesn’t drive anymore as it is too hard for her now due to pain and failing eyesight. So now when travelling she has to sit down the back of the van where it is not comfortable and hard to have a conversation with anyone unless she yells.
Thalidomide survivors struggle with - everyday things.
love Trish 👣
there are 601 of you. I started this account because my illnesses made me feel isolated. the things that I go through on a daily basis make it hard to relate to my friends, as bad as that sounds. I love them and they all do a spectacular job of supporting me and being there for me. but, I wanted some connection with other young people who face similar battles. I reluctantly made this account and posted updates, rants, and just my writing. I poured my heart out and met some of the kindest people. most importantly, this community has given me hope for my own future. I look forward to getting on here when I have wifi and the fact that so many people have joined me on this adventure. 601 isn’t that many, but it means the world to me. welcome! 💖☺️

Even if they can’t hear or talk. Accept them and give them your time because you’ll see the universal language everyone can speak - is love! So thankful ♥️ Remember: your amazing!

Как часто вы видите людей, передвигающихся в инвалидной коляске, на улицах Москвы?⠀
Не видите? Не потому что их нет, а потому что они из дома выйти не могут без посторонней помощи.⠀
К сожалению, подъезды домов не приспособлены для их передвижения. Но, вы замечаете, что в городе стало больше пандусов, специальных лифтов в ТЦ, опускающихся подножек в транспорте.
Но все равно этого мало😔.⠀
Как вы считаете?⠀
Спасибо за фото и тему @vlad_senkovich⠀
