Frustrated and overwhelmed by physical disability

In the last five years I have cared for three wheelchair users on a medium term basis and many other wheelchair bound clients.

One of my main struggles is feeling really angry when I get prevented from doing something or carrying out a plan or goal which is important to me.

Whilst this picture shows a working person as a part of group. When you lose your mobility such as the strength to stand independently, there are so many life limiting circumstances that occur.

I met some people who had cereal palsy, who used a chair for their entire lives, and others who had successful careers at Rolls Royce or even just average careers like in a casino.

Plenty of people with mobility problems have to face each day, knowing they need to reply on another pair of legs from a non disabled adult to help them with their daily lives.

And the frustration can become infuriating when someone deliberately or unintentionally prevents access.

I’ve been pretty angry in my life on many occasions and as a theme over recent years, and I have really appreciated hearing the stories of disabled individuals whom I supported when their goals were stopped or just the build up of small disappointments about things that were forgotten.

Before the pandemic was ever a thought in our News anchor’s list of headlines…there was a really surprisingly heated argument between two majorly influential investors; Bill Ackman of Pershing Square and Carl Ichan.

Bill Ackman was featured in a documentary about his attempt to publicly shame Herbalife for its multi-level marketing pyramid scheme.

Meanwhile Carl Icahn was incensed by this younger man’s insistence to damage a business he had multiple investments in. And also… they just don’t see eye to eye on anything…even a business deal they had … and Carl would swear on the Bible that Ackman had a verbal agreement with him that he then broke, when there was a complication in the shortfall of the anticipated gains on their joint venture.

Ackman and Icahn, a longtime friend of President Donald Trump, buried the hatchet in 2014. With a 26% stake, Carl Icahn remains Herbalife’s largest shareholder. According to TheStreet, Icahn has made almost $1 billion profit from his investment. Meanwhile, Ackman has lost close to $1 billion on Herbalife.

And it just gets worse….’they hate the day they ever met each other’.
