#100hardtruths

Our oral stories are our truth

my stories in my life is disabled
because I lost my hearings and low vision
not able to see
but I could see very hard.

I felt some way
I do my family treat right
I got older in 90s to 2000s
many people do not treat me bad
I told Jesus that help bad people's pain.

I identify myself to be proud
I do things and try real and have kids of my own.
I wish has cure to fix me and other disabled people
it the truth.
also I don't like people to hurt my feelings.
