ABLEISM Abled as standard 2018-01-09

Three people are talking in an office canteen. A balding man with a mustache, wearing a blue sportcoat and khaki trousers, is seated and assumes an air of superiority with hands behind head, saying, “Well I don’t have a problem.” A white Little Person woman who has bright-red hair, wearing a black dress and red shoes, is standing by a coffee table and says, “So it shouldn’t be a problem for anyone else?” A black woman wearing a purple leather jacket and colourful top, is seating on a bench, spreading her arms wide as she says, “Who made YOU the standard by which all others are judged?”

HYPERMOBILITY CARTOON: In which I come unhinged — again

I have severe Joint Hypermobility Disorder.

I dislocated my jaw chewing on a piece of baguette.
I walked a couple blocks to the dentist, did the new patient registration, and they advised me to go to A&E [Accident & Emergency]. So my husband picked me up, and four hours later my jaw had been clicked back into place, and I had a photograph of my x-ray, and some codeine.

Yeup, another datum for an Ehlers-Danlos diagnosis; pretty sure this takes me over the tipping point. Awaiting echocardiogram and visit with a geneticist.

HMS-EDS_Revenge is Sweet and Spiced-15

Cartoon title: I WAS CHEWING ON A PIECE OF BAGUETTE AND MY JAW DISLOCATED The doctor (a Black man with a beard and dreads, wearing a white coat and stethescope) is showing me my temporal-mandibular joint x-rays. (I’m a white woman with short dark hair and glasses, wearing a navy hoodie.) The doctor says to me, “That shows where the mandibular condyle of the jaw came out of the temporal bone of the skull.” I’m thinking to myself, (I’m going to turn that baguette into a nice, soft bread pudding. Revenge is sweet — and spiced!)

CAPD CARTOON: Thai Food

CAPD Central Auditory Processing Disorder

Despite excellent hearing, I misunderstand what people say all day long.

 

CAPD CARTOON_Typhoo Thai food-20

I’m standing in the kitchen next to a bulletin board full of take-away menus, waiting for the kettle to boil to make some more tea. My husband (off-panel) asks, “Is it ‘Typhoo Time’?” Experiencing yet another decoding error, I ask back, “Thai food?”

 

FACEBLIND CARTOON: Oops, Staring

FACEBLIND CARTOON_Oops-Staring-27

Cartoon of myself (a middle-aged white woman wearing glasses, a fedora and trenchcoat) and a man riding on a bus. The man has a very pronounced nose, chin, and jowls; he is wearing a coat, scarf, and cap. The caption reads: Prosopagnosia (Faceblindness) is the inability to recognise people by their faces. Sometimes having an unusual feature helps me eventually learn to identify a person. But it also means that I unintentionally tend to stare at some people.
