Apart from your disability, do you feel handicapped or do you feel normal? What do you like at your life? What do you hate at your life? What do you want to change? Whould you think your life can be better in a different country?

Life is always beautiful! *smile*

Intressting question. I feel as "normal" as anyone can be. sometimes there are situations that drive me mad (barriers) but mostly im fine. everyone in my town knows me, most of the shops i use are adapted and the people here overcame their prejugdes of disabled people. i feel like i can give them a lot with my disability. god teaches us to be humble. seeing me they learned what i means to be humble and thank god for every day in their life.

i dont know what i would be if i was a poor child in india e.g. Dead I guess... icon_frown.gif

And you? Im sure, being disabled in perfect Germany isnt a big deal at all!

Hi benji,

my wheelchair give me the facility of my life to feel normal. With my disability my life don't change to mutch. I can go out with friends how ever I want and so far away I want. I go (wheelchair)hiking, (hand)cycling or swimming when ever I want. The town where I live is one of the towns with low barriers. I don't need a car there. I have no licence. The most stopping places are barrier-free and the most trams, busses and trains are low-floor vehicles. I do the same things as bevor. Rolling but not walking.

Disabled in germany can be a big deal, when you want. Not everthing is perfect. We have a lot of barrieres too. Sometimes we have to fight for our adjuvant, like wheelchairs etc. and not everybody like to fight. They feel unprivileged. But I see it like you. I dont know what I would be if I was born poor in india. I think this so many times and when I think it, I'm thankfull to be born in good old Germany.
