Navigating the world as a disabled person is often a frustrating, exhausting experience, with inaccessible venues, restaurants, and shops a constant barrier to our access and inclusion. But what’s even more frustrating, is that even when accessible areas are built for us, they can be so blatantly misused and appropriated without a thought for their true purpose, which is to give us equal access to public spaces — access which is a legal right.

All my nerves are hypersensitive. Which means bright lights, loud noises, high pitched noises, high bass/subwoofers, certain scents, and a myriad other things are all actively painful. And it's easy to become overwhelmed by too many voices speaking at once. At home, I have volume control and the ability to instantly get away if I need. And scents? Alcohol, tobacco, and perfume are high on the list. Even a trace of anything like that can feel like a spike up the nose. An open glass of wine at the far end of the table is enough. You can put on a dab of perfume in the morning, shower in the afternoon, walk across the room in the evening, and it'll still be painful to cross your footsteps several minutes later. (I'm not kidding. This has happened.)
