Physically Disabled

The physically disabled individuals are people too, and should also be treated with respect. Some physically disabled people were not always physically challenged their whole lives, but some are. Many people that are physically disabled have become disabled in different ways. There are disabled individuals who have been hit with an unexpected disability, such as: ♦ ♦ strokes, type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, through car accidents, other physical accidents, by gun-shot womb damage, through drug abuse, physical abuse, physical attack, weight gain, old age, cancer, and other reasons. ♦ ♦ These unexpected disabilities may have not always been a part of that individuals life. With many of physical disabilities, some of them are temporary with the help of a Physical Therapist. Disabilities that require rehabilitation and physical therapy can possibly have the individual back to being non-disabled.

The things that can cause a stroke: high blood pressure, very high temperature heat, and numbness and paralysis on one side of a person's body. There are things that can cause a stroke, like: eating pork for many years, high blood pressure, eating fast foods often, drinking alcohol often, and high levels of stress. And then there's type 2 diabetes, this disease can come about by NOT eating healthy foods more than unhealthy foods, including the lack of regular exercise. With diabetes, individuals have to exercise regularly, have a healthy diet, and have proper doctor checkups and examinations.

Interacting with the Physically Disabled

Orthopedic Disabilities

Another cause of a physical disability is rheumatoid arthritis; I know this one quite well. This illness affected my grandmother when she was about 75-88 years of age. She was referred to a specialist orthopedic doctor, appointments that I would take her to nearly every month. Her orthopedic doctor would aspirate her swollen joints with a syringe needle to get the inflammation out of her aching joints. She had arthritis off and on, which means the arthritis came and went frequently. On some days she would feel extreme pain in her knees, hands, and shoulders. And on other days she wouldn't feel any arthritis pain at all. She would visit her bone doctor once or twice a month. And her doctor would use a syringe to drain the fluid from her knees, so that she could walk better with less pain. At that time my grandmother walked with a walker or a cane. By her later years she would want to ride in her wheel-chair, from time to time, being that the arthritis was not affecting her every day. The arthritis wasn't hurting her on some days, and then it would come back again on other days. But eventually she was bound to a wheel-chair permanently. And I personally wanted her to feel comfortable in her golden years. And I did as much as I could for her, to the best of my ability. When I would visit my grandmother, I would ask God to "give me strength." I needed mental strength, yes I did. I had to cook, clean, lift her and sat her on the potty, bathe her, groom her hair and clothes, take her to many of her appointments, and any other things she would have me to do. I just wanted to make sure she was comfortable. My grandmother had all the fruits of the spirit, and I admire her for that. She took good care of me emotionally, when I needed her through the years of my growing up. So to me this was give and take, sowing and reaping.
