For ideas about possible posts on this blog or just to continue to learn as much as I can about Meniere’s disease I do a search on Google news on a regular basis. Lots of times there isn’t a lot of new issues about this disorder or stories about it but the other day I found a post on the OregonLive.com site about a man who struggles with not only Meniere’s but also back problems as well as osteoarthritis.
He makes a good point about how most disabilities are easily seen by other people…
When someone sees another person in a wheelchair, motorized cart, using a walker or even with a cast on their leg and using crutches, they know right away that person is disabled. However, not all disabilities are quite so obvious.
I think that most of us who have dealt with Meniere’s over the years can definitely understand what he means. It is unfortunate that some people (a lot of people) can understand what we are going through without seeing a big Meniere’s attack. What can be particularly bad is when even people close to you have a hard time understanding the full impact on one’s life that Meniere’s brings.
Changing the subject just a bit but last week’s blog post was number 300!! It took 3 years to reach that milestone and I want to thank everybody for supporting “My life and Meniere’s disease”
