Ask before helping


It is a habit for everybody, if you see somebody who needs help you want to help them. But to someone who is disabled it might not come across the way you would think.  As a person who needs help for everything; I can tell you that sometimes I will not take the help not because I don’t appreciate the offer.  But I would like to try before you think I need help.  Yes it may seem like it would be easier to just help a differently abled  person but maybe they would like to try to be more independent and find a way to do it. For some of us who use power wheelchairs to get around;  sometimes we will meet people who do not know that we are the only ones who can move it easily and if we need help we will ask, we can do everything just in a different way.   Having a disability comes needing help with daily life things that would be easy to someone who is  ”abled body”.  It doesn’t mean that we can’t do things if someone is differently abled it just means we have to do things in a different way.   So to you who are abled body the next time you see a person who is differently ask if you can help them before you do.
