Some perceptions of disability and illness are too messed up and extreme for my liking. Persons living with these conditions are seen as really good or really bad, but there never seems to be a middle ground. This means that disability/illness status is used to judge our characters. Without further ado, here's the "good" and the "bad" of disability/illness perceptions.
Disclaimer: I have a chronic illness that is a disability, so I am lumping the two terms together, but they are not necessarily the same.
