Recently, I learned the true value of assistive technology and the extent of my own internalized ableism. One Monday morning, my laptop started overheating to the point where it actually started to hurt my fingers.

Before anyone starts worrying, I am not still using it! It’s been sent off to be repaired but that means I’m having to go without it for about a week and a half. (Note: Scope has found me a suitable laptop with everything I need in a couple of days.

I cannot fault them in any way.) I have been much less active over the past 18 months. When you have a muscle-wasting condition, this means a quick loss of whatever strength you do have.
