Have you ever had someone that wanted to be your friend but you did not want to be friends with them? I want to warn you now, just in case you have not experienced this yet. When you become disabled, you lose friends. I’m not sure why, maybe because they are afraid they might have to take care of you. It could be because they just do not know how to talk to you, they are afraid they will say something wrong. Again, there are many stereotypes and prejudices. Remember that your true friends will stay with you. When especially when you are first disabled you need to try to keep a positive attitude. Do not worry about people who are not coming around or calling.
