29 August 2012 There I was listened on the radio to the build-up to the games. Tonight's opening events and tomorrow's beginnings.... and I thought would it ever be accepted for someone with our condition to compete as a paralympian or even as a disabled athlete? I wonder where the most negativity would originate - other patients or the public at large? It's 'odd' isn't it our own perception about our own disability, as well as what we consider to be other people's perception of us. Why shouldn't someone with ME compete? If exercise doesn't equal cure - why shouldn't people with ME consider themselves disabled athletes? It's an interesting notion, no?
