when i get irate i WILL stab people

My friend Julia is traveling with me. Julia Roberts.

I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in.

Julia has shaved my armpits. She has gotten me through airport security. She loaded and unloaded my wheelchair countless times. She’s had to navigate bathrooms and restaurants for handicap accessibility. She’s made umpteen phone calls for me because customer service was being difficult.

Those are just a few of the ways she helps me.

Julia is my friend.

Julia goes beyond what most friends do.

So when people ignore her and treat her like an extension of my wheelchair it hurts me that people hurt HER.

It makes me unbelievably stabtastic.

You have been warned.

These “pushers” are special people who work hard to treat me with dignity and respect.

DO THE SAME.

    How could anyone ignore the awesomeness that is Julia? Ample cleavage: check. Fashion forward prints: yep, got that. Take no bullshit ‘tude: oh, there’s that too. Amazingly genuine: they missed out.

    Not to mention, if you ignore Julia you are missing out on meeting an amazing person. Anissa always has the best pushers.

    [...] friend Anissa, who is in a wheelchair, and it is always great to hang out with her and it’s always extremely eye-opening. She is one of the funniest people I know and is a rock star among the social media crowd, so [...]
