Working with a disability

Writing this blog has to be the hardest one I’ve ever written because it hits close to home since I have cerebral palsy It was something I never would admit to my employers because it was something that I personally was ashamed about.

Being the son of a restaurant owner I always took pride in the fact that I was working, which is another reason why I would never say anything because when I did people talk to me like I was a child like I didn’t understand what they were saying that’s not something I wanted, I wanted to feel normal however as I’ve been reminded several times over the years there is no such thing as normal.

I lack the strength, balance, and speed so I am limited to somethings like riding a bicycle, lifting heavy objects, push-ups and fighting so the fact that I’m a security guard By night and postmates delivery guy by day is unbelievable.

Despite my limitations I always aspired to move up and I never felt sorry for myself until I was denied the opportunity to move up after training three people that moved up before I did and this is where it got hard to the point I became severely depressed that I felt so useless that entertained the idea of taking my own life Because of it.

I’ve learned to accept who I am and realize that there are people who are worst off than me and they are doing great things Which means although limited there are no limits Heck there was a guy named John Quinn who had cerebral palsy was in the military he even wrote a book about it may be impossible for some but I realize we get through if he did it anyone could.
