Yeah, bitchfornoreason? WhattheFUCK is this then? Casting aspersions on my character much?
I think the question is whether the parking placards should be confined to people who have mobility limitations or whether they should also be available to people with exertional limitations.
The Chicago area has had some pretty big abuses. There are on-street parking spaces which are free for people with handicap stickers. Meter parking for the rest of us is astronomical. People use relatives stickers. People without stickers at all park there.
A few years back there was an expose abut doctors who would write the note for a placard for anyone who asked. I knew, first hand, one guy who got one because he carried a diagnosis of paranoia- nothing else. Personally, I don't think the system was meant for that sort of thing. The question is where do you draw a line?
I applaud your initiative and tenacity to travel the places you have been. I wish I could go some of those places. I am truly envious. Others I have been to.
I am also familiar with the diseases on your list. You have been dealt a rotten hand, no doubt about it.How do you cope when you have a flare up someplace like Nepal or Morocco?
