A Little Change

Posted by Chelsey on February 5, 2009

Hi guys,

If anyone’s still reading this from its first incarnation I thought I’d let you know that until the end of May (at least) this is gonna serve mostly as my travel blog, about traveling with a disability. So feel free to read or not based on that!

Let’s Get It Started

Posted by Chelsey on November 1, 2007

Welcome to Sense and Disability! This is a blog co-written my myself and my best friend Carly. Aside from being teenagers who love various and sundry things such as Grey’s Anatomy, books, purses and cell phones we both have disabilities.

So this blog is about us, and our adventures! 😀

This blog has been created for multiple reasons. First of all, it’s a place for us to share our experiences, cooky as they may be. Second of all, it’s a place that will be used for details on a project that we’ve been working on, more details later.

But before any of that you should know who we are! I’m Chelsey. I’m eighteen, a sophomore at Oglethorpe University, and I have a disability. It’s called Dermatosparaxis, which is a form of Ehlers-Danlos that causes easy brusing and tearing of the skin. It also causes other lovely side-effects such as short stature, (I’m a whooping 4″6′), low vision, joint infections and other fun things.

I’m also a writer, I speak French, I’m obssessed with London and Shakespeare, I knit (check my knitting blog) And I’m best friends with my co-blogger, the wacky Carly. So, that’s our world. Welcome to it!
