    I know I'm coming off as angry, but this matters a great deal to me.

    Just sick of having so little control over what happens to me... being disabled is like being slapped in the face. And then society reaches out and slaps you again, just to make sure you get the message that you are a second-class citizen.

    Your education doesn't matter, the amount of work you've put in during your lifetime doesn't matter, the help you've given others... your heart, your soul, your character....

    All washed away in a heartbeat because all people see is "poor".

    And somehow that translates to "lazy, uneducated, undeserving, stupid, ignorant...."

    It does hurt. I just wish people understood without having to go through it themselves.
