Re: What counts as 'disabled'?
You have me _every_ sympathy. Offered sincerely and genuinely - from experience.
I apologise to those for whom what follows is TMI. Feel free not to read further. But my own wife has Primary Progressive MS. She is fully wheelchair bound, has a colostomy for solid waste and an indwelling catheter for liquid waste, one _I_ have to maintain and replace as a result of cuts to care funding. She is losing the use of her hands and her voice volume is dropping. I still work full time and I'm also her sole carer. I'm in tech, and tech should be a savior for someone whose computer is her sole window on the world. Does it help? Sure. Has the available help changed much in the past ten years she's been chair bound? Not so much. And lord knows I've tried most of what's available. Head mice? Yes. Dragon? Yes. Crossed fingers and hope I don;t come home to find she's finally given up and OD-d? So yes I can't say it loud enough.
AC, whoever you are, you have my every sympathy - and my hope that, gamer though I am, the tech world takes a little of its eye off a gazillion core cpu with graphics to show the atoms in a hair on the Bad Guy's face - and opens the world to those who have no window to look through but a computer screen.
