Also, my year of injuries, surgeries (two hand, one knee), and pain made free-thinking bandwidth a rare commodity, and made me (finally) recognize those who do not have enough spoons to think, research or write. I dedicated myself to reading broadly in disability studies and I’m so very sorry it took my own experiences to bring me to this very important literature. I hope my work can grow there in the future.
