This is a GREAT quote from Alana Theriault about changes in the independent living philosophy:
The latest incarnation of Independent Living includes increased case management. Don’t ask me how many bureaucrats and health care “professionals” are involved in my bathing and dressing…who, how often, for how long…
Many people think my disability is the problem. The paternal “safety net” is my biggest problem; the rest is just the human condition.
Alana Theriault is a disability benefits advocate, trainer, and artist living in Berkeley with her sweetheart and two demanding cats.
