For and About the Dwellers: Those Living with Physical Challenges
These pages illustrate lives of those whose live in unending storms. Many of these are people living with invisible disabilities and other chronic conditions. For some broad characteristics of dwellers, see the posts about what invisible disabilities are and how to recognize them. Due to each person being a unique individual with differing limitations and to the variety of diseases, it is impossible to completely categorize dwellers. Here, you can get glimpses into how the lives of dwellers might look like.
There will be ideas and tips about
- activities we dwellers can do
- practical ideas about living in general,
- how relationships can be handled
- the area of coping and acceptance of what now exists in our lives
- handling emotional issues and
- examples of people who re-purposed their lives
and real-life stories of dwellers who’ve been there and done that.
Maybe you live in continual storms, or—like me—your storms come and go with days of sunshine in-between. Either way, storms of physical difficulties keep you from a life of independence.
If you're a dweller, we hope you will find encouragement to keep on keeping on. Living with invisible disabilities can be quite challenging. We hope these ideas and tips about what you can do, how you can cope, and ways to accept what now is in your life will enrich your life. If you’re an observer, we trust you’ll enjoy getting to know more about dwellers and their lives.
We will add to these pages as you send in ideas via contact and as I come across more ideas.
