Fallen and Can't Get Up!

Hey guys,

The weekend is almost here!!! YAY!!!!  Although what I'm writing about today may seem like it came out of left field to some of you, it is actually important to me.  I currently have (and have had) a lot of family members who are disabled in some way.  Unfortunately, when you do not have health insurance, you're not left with many options for help.  For this reason, I wanted to post some offers for medical equipment.  I don't think we really take enough time to be thankful for our health.  I know life isn't perfect many times, but things could always be worse. 

We should take some time to remember people who have/had disabilities.

Any type of disability or handicap is a sensitive subject and should be treated with respect. 

Just so that everyone is aware of what the differences are...


· … the loss or reduced function of a particular body part or organ (e.g., a missing limb).


· … when an impairment limits the ability to perform certain tasks' (e.g., to walk, to see, to add a row of numbers) in the same way that most persons do.


· …if the disability leads to educational, personal, social, vocational, or other problems.
