Amelia Baggs, previously known as Amanda Baggs (I believe Amelia is her middle name) is a disability rights activist and blogger. She has a long list of physical, developmental, psychiatric, and cognitive disabilities, but the one she is best known for being severely autistic. She does not speak verbally, though as you can tell from the blog, she has a lot of eloquent, beautiful, and important words to say in writing.

Anyway, she has written quite a few interesting, informative, and sometimes horrifying articles from her experiences with home nursing. I think people who work in home care should read them.

Here are a few:
