Finally, one of these
This week, I finally went and got one of these.
Which means I can park in a 'disabled' specific car park when I have Ryley in the car with me.
I can't tell you how many people shook their heads in disbelief when I told them I got one.
Not because they thought I didn't deserve one.
But for the fact it has taken me so long to get it.
For some stupid reason, having this is like telling the whole world that someone in our household has a disability.
Which is true, obviously.
But I don't see Ryley as being 'disabled'.
He is just Ryley.
I know that the parking permit is only another aid designed to offer more support.
And I should be grateful that it is there.
I think the reason I have taken so long to get one is because I just feel like now we are advertising the fact that disability is so significant in our lives that we need special parking spots.
Stupid, I know.
Funny isn't it. No matter how far along the journey we are, there are still things that pop up that are challenging.
