The Secret Life of Hidden Disabilities

March 5, 2017

book-official

My book gives a voice to those of us who are living with hidden disabilities, and the discrimination we face whether with, or without the use of a service dog. It seems to have been an unspoken subject. Have you ever gotten out of your car because you parked in a handicap space and you don’t look disabled? Maybe even chased down while someone is yelling at you because they assume you are abusing the handicap space? Have you ever gone to ER to find an ER nurse is hunting you down because you don’t look disabled enough to have a service dog by your side? Some places ask for papers regarding the service dog, and my city doesn’t issue papers. Have you ever gone out to a restaurant only to be harassed by the people sitting near because you don’t look disabled enough to have a service dog. Maybe denied service because they don’t think you are disabled enough to have a service dog. Have patrons ever chased you down in a store because they would like know why you have the dog? Only to be told, “You are not disabled.” This book may open your eyes and hearts for those living with hidden disabilities. My hope is to educate those people around us; so that people living with hidden disabilities don’t have to endure discrimination and can live in peace among-st a sometimes tough world.

Handicap Parking Spaces

June 14, 2016

How come so many people are violating tenant parking spaces and Handicap Parking spaces in HUD buildings?

 

Tonight I witnessed a car receive a parking ticket because the car was parked in a Handicap space illegally. I decided to sit, watch, and wait. I was intrigued to see what the person would do when they arrived to their ticketed car. Well, I see a lady with her family walking to her car she buckles up her kids, and away she goes….I literally followed her by chance because it just so happened she was traveling in my direction.

 

What is the fine for parking illegally in a Handicap space in San Diego California and what is the fine when you drive off and may loose a ticket you don’t see on your window?
