An absolutely amazing piece on love & disability.
My girlfriend has been asked if she was my nurse. Once, a person blankly asked if she was "the one who takes care of him." We've gotten used to this bizarre, recurring question, and often find ways to poke fun at their ignorance....

I can be your knight in shining armor. As soon as I can find a wheelchair-accessible horse.
