WHAT DO THE DISABLED FEEL LIKE LIVING IN A WORLD BUILT AROUND AND FOR AVERAGE “ABLED” BODY PEOPLE?

I PRAISE YOU, FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE. WONDERFUL ARE YOUR WORKS; MY SOUL KNOWS IT VERY WELL

QUOTE BY: MARTINA NAVRATILOVA “Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone.”

Hi all it’s me, so I guess you can tell what this article is going to be about LOL, DISABILITIES AND THE WORLD OF DISABLED PEOPLE… I know all my regular readers/followers are probably a little confused and are probably like what the heck, why have two headers? Why have the inspirational quote below the scripture verse? How could you change the look of the beginning of your articles. The scripture verse as your main headline on every article was the-book-of-roo’s statement piece, that’s what made you stand out from all the other blogs out there. If your saying that let me just say I know! You are so right, and I promise after this article I’ll never change it again🙏 The thing is, with this particular article I just felt it needed that inspirational quote even more than it needed the scripture, I almost wasn’t even going to put a scripture verse but after I started actually writing the article I than realized it still needed a scripture too so that’s when I decided ok I’ll just give it 2 headers LOL. I don’t know why it needed both but I just felt that’s where the lord was leading me and as I always tell you all, I always want to do what he’s guiding me to and not just what I think will get me the most hits on this blog or what I think will get me the most popularity points. I want to continually do what I feel his heart (the lords) is telling me, and what I felt his heart was saying today was to make that quote by Martina Navratilova the focus of this article, why? Because I felt this articles focus had to be centered around disabilities and disability awareness.

First off before I get deep into this article and it’s purpose, let me give a little update on me. I think the last time I wrote an article for this blog was around my birthday (august), so let’s start there. My summer was great, except for that minor hiccup at the end of July, I been doing really well. I havent been to active cause of Covid-19 but I’m doing what I feel I can do safely without putting me or my family in harms way. I did get vaccinated and so did most of my family, but we do have my niece to think about, she is only 10 years old so she is unable to get the vaccine right now so because of that I’m also limited on my activities because now when I do things I mostly do things with her and so I not only have to worry about my health but I also worry about hers too, and I never want to do anything that’s going to put my life and health or hers in harms way, so I haven’t done much this past year. How am I doing otherwise you ask? I am doing great, I haven’t been in the hospital since July, thank you JESUS🙏That guy named Jesus is just awesome isn’t he? LOL 🤪 don’t get me wrong, my health hasn’t been perfect but it also hasn’t been awful, let’s say it’s been manageable and at times I’ll even go as far as to say it’s been good. Other than my health not much new to report just been trying to enjoy my family and my life with my family LOL. Covid-19 hasn’t made that easy but we’re getting by and making the best of things. Book is great, should be out around New Years (for real this time).

What have I been up to you ask? Well for one writing and finalizing my book, secondly I been working hard to get my YouTube channel off the ground, and also my podcast, and speaking of my podcast it is really why I’m here, well partly why LOL. I recorded a episode a few months ago during ADA Anniversary (American with Disabilities act) it was their 30th anniversary, and so I recorded a episode with a fellow disabled friend his name is Tim Randles. we called the episode: what do the disabled feel like living in a world built around and for average “abled” body people? We discussed how we both felt in our younger years especially and we talked about different things that we both went through, and struggles that we both dealt with. After we recorded this I went to upload it but I had issues getting the podcast episode uploaded. I worked on it for weeks but still nothing seemed to be getting me any closer, I still could not get this thing to upload and so I ended up scratching the whole episode. I said: well it’s way to late to upload it now this was supposed to be for ADA 30th anniversary but it’s now a month past the anniversary so oh well I guess it wasn’t meant to be heard, but deep down I was heart broken that I couldn’t fix this because deep down I knew how important it was that this episode was heard but after weeks of trying I said: oh well I give up and I moved on with my life LOL. Well all of a sudden at the beginning of October my friend (the same friend who I recorded the episode with) he said: hey you know it’s dwarfism awareness month and he ended up writing this whole article on his own blog about dwarfism and when he wrote what he wrote I immediately said to myself, oh my gosh! This is my second chance to upload that podcast episode. I immediately got working on it and finally after doing some digging around I not only figured out why I originally could not get this thing to upload, but also figured out how to get it uploaded, and by October 4th, I think it was the 4th, I had the episode uploaded for all to hear, THANK YOU JESUS🙏 so if you all want to go listen to that you can by clicking the link👇 or by going to whatever application you listen to your favorite podcast shows and search THE-BOOK-OF-ROO, or you can just type in Roo and it should pop up by just typing that too, and once you search you should see not only our name but also our logo.

As some of you know besides writing/blogging/vlogging and doing all the more serious things I do on social media I also have a tiktok page where I do more funny/quirky/silly things, things to just have fun and try to have something more childlike where I could focus on having a little fun and not be so serious. I also started the page because I wanted a outlet to show people they can be silly around people like me, and it’s ok to even mention our disability and maybe even acknowledge it😱

So when I made the page I purposely made every video title start with “the 2FT crippled lady” Now when I did that yes I purposely did it because I knew it be something that would catch people’s eye and catch them off guard a little, but never in a billion years did I think it would become the big deal that it’s becoming. About 2 months after I made the page a friend/family member came up to me and said: I like your videos but I’m not to happy that your calling yourself the “crippled” lady. I gave them my reasons for why I did that and also explained my views on that word and explained to them that the word was not a bad word. Well fast forward about 3 weeks and all of a sudden I started getting contacted by several people who follow me on tiktok and other social media pages, when I say several, I mean several, especially by DM (direct message) and all these people were saying the same thing, one woman even said to me, why do you have to use crippled why can’t you say unique lady, which like I said in my YouTube video👆 I find it is a little comical that people do not have a issue with 2FT lady, 2FT lady is not a issue at all, the only issue is crippled lady. I decided the only way to solve this problem was to face it head on, and so I made the YouTube video that is listed at the top of the page and I explain my views on this word “crippled”. Like I stated in the video, crippled is not a “bad” word, if you look up the word crippled it almost means the exact same thing as the word disabled, actually if you google the word crippled their explanation of that word is actually nicer sounding than the word disabled. The problem isn’t the word, or “words” it’s our outlook on the word and so I will continue to use the word “crippled” until people feel more comfortable about it. Like I said in the video, being disabled is not a terrible thing, yes there are aspects to it that are terrible but it in it self isn’t. I have still been able to live a very fulfilling life and my disability has not stopped me from doing anything I’ve wanted to do. Yes some things I’ve had to work harder than the average person but I’ve still been able to accomplish everything I’ve ever dreamed up.

No matter if your disabled or not I can almost guarantee that you all have had struggles, you all have had an ability that didn’t come perfectly, you have all been crippled in one way shape or form in your lives, you may not realize it but you have. Maybe your scared to ride a bike, maybe you have panic attacks, maybe you have financial issues, marriage issues, issues with your children, those are all forms of being crippled, just because my crippled-ness is more visible doesn’t mean it’s any different, the word isn’t the problem, the problem is us for giving that word so much power! Me being crippled is just a small piece of who I am. I am strong, courageous, and wonderfully made. That’s really all I have for today but after your done reading this reach out to me in the comments on this blog or on YouTube or in any of my various other social media pages and let me know your outlook on the word “crippled and let me know if you learned something from this article, as always thank you for reading this and for supporting me, I truly do appreciate it and am grateful for each and every one of you🙏 I love you all God bless and remember keep shining everyone! 😘

ROO YOUR 2FT CRIPPLED LADY WAS RUSHED TO THE ER AND ADMITTED INTO THE HOSPITAL!

August 1, 2021

PSALMS 46:5

GOD IS WITHIN HER, SHE WILL NOT FALL; GOD WILL HELP HER AT BREAK OF DAY.

Hi all I know it’s been a few weeks since I have posted, I have a good excuse though lol. I am not going to write a huge blog because the VLOG is over an hour long so that should keep you occupied 😂 this week life kinda changed in the blink of an eye for me, but that’s pretty typical when fighting two life threatening diseases and being categorized as “terminal”. Over the weekend (July 24th) I woke up extremely sick, so sick that I had to be rushed to the ER and was than admitted into the hospital. They were telling me some pretty scary things when I first got there, but through it all, all I kept hearing was the Lord saying: I got you, don’t worry I got you, and even though I felt like crap, I still had this overwhelming peaceful feeling and all the Lord kept telling me is, Jackie don’t buy into the fear, I’m telling you I got you . I trusted in him from the second I got sick and still do now, so anyways watch the VLOG to find out all the gory details. Am I still in hospital? Am I home? Am I still sick? Am I healed? Do I need brain surgery? Did I have brain surgery? 😱 find out all those answers and more in this VLOG. As Always, thank you for the love and continued support and you will be hearing from me again very soon 😘
