Hi Hannah and welcome. Tell us more about yourself.
My oldest friend in the world has post-polio syndrome and is wheelchair dependent. That has never stopped her from doing ANY thing that she wanted to. She's literally a rocket scientist, analyst, world traveller etc. I really admire you for what you are doing. Let us hear more about your career as it progresses.

Thank you for your reply.
I could not agree with you more the main reason I am studying to be a nurse is firstly due to the fact that I love caring for people but secondly to prove to myself that I could do it
Even in the year 2005 you still continue to hear of not so possitive stories of disabled people.
If there is anything that I can do change perceptions of disabled people then I will certainly do my best
