Things to NOT say to disabled people

that-eds-life:

“You’re too young/pretty to be disabled!”

“Are you sure you need that? ://”

“Have you tried (yoga, eating healthier, excercise)?”

“Oh, I get like that too sometimes!”

“I know someone who (mentions the only other disabled person you know)”

“You really shouldn’t fake that”

“___ is over diagnosed these days anyways”

(Feel free to add more. If you’ve said these things that’s ok, just try to avoid them. It makes us uncomfortable at best)
