The story of my dis-ability: Three poems.

A road accident had me bedridden for a whole month. During my recovery, I reached a new level of empathy for children with multiple disabilities and chronic illnesses. Traumatic events offer opportunities to reflect, ruminate, and transform selves. Undeniably, there is pain, discomfort, anxiety, irritability, and anger, but there is a deeper, inner growth happening too. Through the poems presented here, I illustrate how I experienced the ableistic world, my struggles, triumphs, and aches and pains. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
