Do you struggle with navigating space with a disability or chronic pain? If so, I want to hear from you. I’m trying rilly rilly hard to get out into the world, but I’m finding that garden-variety space bullies make it unsafe for me to do so. I just had another incident of blatant disregard for my space, through which I was left feeling humiliated and powerless.

Here’s a collection of blog posts I’ve written on the topic. I’d love to hear your thoughts, and I’d love to know about your own experiences and strategies for getting through a crowd in one piece.
