Out and About, and In My Head

When I visit the rehab hospital for treatment of my spastic left arm, I often limp past people in wheelchairs who are more severely disabled. I imagine they watch me walking with an abnormal gait carrying a cane in my one functional arm, struggling to control my left arm that seems to have a mind of its own. I think their minds may work like mine does when I see those who don’t seem to have any physical limitations. Disabilities fall on a continuum, and mine is towards the high functioning end.
