There’s a great site I recently discovered that shares inspiring stories about facing life with illness or disability. The Mighty features essays written from personal experience. When I read these stories, sometimes I smile, sometimes I cry. I wanted to be a part of this, so I’ve submitted a few posts (I’ve linked them below).
When I Didn’t Recognize the Woman Next to My Son with Autism (published July 15, 2015)
The Moment in the Produce Aisle That Proved the Autism Specialists Wrong (published June 30, 2015)
I Don’t Need a College Degree to Understand This About My Son With Autism (published June 3, 2015)
Why Overhearing a Mother’s 3 Words to Her Son Made Me Flinch (published April 21, 2015)
You know that advice, “Never read the comments”? So far, I’ve found that hasn’t been a problem at The Mighty. The site has attracted a community of readers who want to support contributors and to learn from their stories. I invite you to stop by The Mighty today.
