I'm disabled, and have spent many years in a wheelchair. I am currently able to walk and function independently, but realize that can change at any time. I don't expect the entire world to adapt to me. I am realistic and recognize there are places I can't go and things can't do because of my disabilities. I expect reasonable accommodations, like curb cuts on public streets, ramps to access the courthouse, store aisles not blocked by signs and displays. I don't expect every building to have an elevator, but if it does, I expect it to be available for use (my kids school had elevators, but kept them locked at all times, requiring a trip to the office to wait for an escort with a key). I live in an isolated, rural area, with family members who,I can count on for help I need. My isolated community also has its own fire station. I,will live here as long as I can, but if someday I find myself without family to rely on, and if the fire station should close, I would move to a place more accessible to services. It younare disabled, it foolish to put yourself in the middle of nowhere and then expect others to rescue you.
