Last night during our Story-Telling Sunday, Michelle Seitzer shared an interesting insight about caring for her daughter, who has cerebral palsy. Michelle finds herself explaining to everyone, including strangers, about her daughter’s disorder.
I found that really interesting. I wonder if we feel we must explain what makes us different.
So, I’m curious: Do you explain your caree’s disability or disease to others? Do you find yourself explaining in certain situations or to everyone? Can you tell when you’re explaining to educate and when you’re explaining out of nerves? Please share your experiences in our comments section, below.
