I am often reminded that being physically challenged is not the worst way to be disabled. I have lived with a severe movement disorder caused by a stroke 19 years ago. I limp, carry a cane, and have very limited use of my left arm. I live a full life in spite of it. I’m sure I have asked for help every day for 19 years for things such as opening jars, holding doors open, carrying various items, cooking, tying shoelaces, and sundry physical tasks I struggle with on a daily basis.
