Camp on my mind

Being disabled is hard. You’re limited in what you can do. Sometimes you’ll almost live in pain. You can often get frustrated by your limitations.

And yet sometimes, it’s not the disabled person that really suffers most. Sometimes the disabled person isn’t truly aware of what’s going on. But oh the family knows. Care giving is something you have to do day in and day out. It’s not like you can leave your disabled person behind. Something as simple as going out to eat as a family becomes complicated or even impossible. Take a vacation? How does a family with a disabled person do that?

The people who run the camp I’ve gone to a few years now understands that. This camp is a place where families can relax and enjoy being together. The disabled person is well taken care of. I am going to get to go to the camp reunion next weekend, and I can hardly wait.
