Disabilities can be invisible

Shame on the man in the white truck at the Amherstburg Ribfest who went out of his way to berate me because I did not look like I had a disability as I pulled into a handicap spot at the Libro Centre. He commented twice, quite sarcastically, that he could help me get my wheelchair out of our car as he shook his head in disgust. Just because I'm not a senior citizen does not mean that I don't have a need for a handicap permit. I do my best to still enjoy life despite 17 years of chronic and increasing pain. Your ignorance, disapproval, cockiness, and chastisement was uncalled for and based solely on the fact that we were both under 50 and healthy looking as we sat in our car. Shame on you. You've been spotted.
