A2. Lack of accessibility creates the concept of disability as a lesser than status in a social construct, rather than a neutral medical fact. #LupusChat
A2. The world would not see us as abnormal if it was normalized so that everyone could access everything. #LupusChat
A2. In constructing the world for the abled and able-bodied, it's deconstructing the world for disabled people and people with chronic illness.

A3. We have to have each other's backs. A sense of community is wonderful, regardless of how it is found.

Intersectional awareness is key as well. If you're out supportive of people like you, you're not supportive. #LupusChat
Support also comes in many forms. It's listening when you're in a position of privilege and not being centered. It's showing remorse and making appropriate amends if you misstep. #LupusChat
It's also tricky, balancing the recognition that everyone is not at the same stage of "wokeness" with not being responsible for other's wanton ignorance.

A3. From home I observed #ACR18 featuring patient interviews like the one with @DawnMGibson.

It gave me so much hope & vidation about #painsomnia. #CreakyChats
A3. Iearned about patient posters & through community representatives who attended, that researchers and doctors were observing and listening. #CreakyChats
A3. That meant so much to me. I'm still thinking about it and browsing and observing material from the #LupusChat attendees, @CreakyJoints and @DawnMGibson.

What a well timed moment to be be newly diagnosed with Arthritis & Fibro.

@AllisonR has educated me that I should use Sentence Case for #Accessibility. Graphic reads: # symbol followed by the word Hashtag in white lettering on a blue background.
I have #brainfog so I know I missed someone. Please add your favorite resources as a reply.
