Definitive Disclosure

I’ve come to the conclusion that you might as well wear your disability out on your sleeve. Meaning just live it. Don’t try to hide it just put it out there. People are going to react to you anyway. No matter what you do people are going to reject and run if they are handicapped by their lack of emotional intelligence. You might as well disclose you disability all the time. Don’t hide it. Its too much work.

I’ve talked about disclosure a lot. I’ve talked about it in the context of dating and finding a job. I still disclose my disability at the first interview when I’m searching for a job. Its obvious when I walk in the door anyway since I’m traveling with a white cane. However when I’m looking for a date I just put my disability right there in my profile.

So carry your cane use your devices adapt adjust and live. Deal with the people who are willing to accept you and see you for the special person you are. It is working much better for me.
