  • Wow, guess ignorance is more universal than I thought. One, caring for a disabled person can drain income so much that "middle class" becomes "poor", because the cost of the care is extreme. Two, for the nutcase who thought that those who are so disabled that they require economic assistance, get paid enough, see above; disability care isn't cheap.

    But it's people like that, and like the psycho who didn't want her kids mixing with other kids, who perpetuate this sort of stupidity, make it impossible for the economically challenged AND disabled to get ahead, and give humans a bad name overall.

  • I have been an advocate with people with different abilities and yes that was the view of many ignorant people in the past. This is why it is important for people to be educated on such things.

  • Really? Because my husband has diabetes and he is skinny, fit, an executive, and educated. All the things you assume with the "boy next door" and not "low class" (although I am not even sure how you would define "low class", so I guess his description could fit there too).

    So, I think that may just be your perception. You should try to change it.

  • writeon thank you I'm sorry If I sounded sarcastic but this was the "thought" in the old days. I was hoping to get the message with this post. I'm sorry that I feel that people only pay attention to these kind of comments. OP
