It’s interesting to have a sometimes unnoticeable disability, as people’s true colours are often revealed. I have sat at meetings where visibly able-bodied people would make jokes and pejorative assumptions about people with disabilities while assuming that I was able-bodied. At times, I can’t resist countering their assumptions or their joking, but I quite like the technique when I begin talking and add my hands to communicate often on some other subject. One of my hands is withered and atrophied. I make sure the comments participants see that, as I pleasantly look at each of them and watch them want to eat their words and hide.
