Disabled Ableism

Having cerebral palsy makes my life difficult. Right now, I’m currently dealing with leg pain that’s annoying because my AFOs aren’t fitting like they did when I got them a little more than five years ago. Plus, my crutches are also old and worn—in need of replacing. Until this can happen, I’m trying to not push myself to do too much. When I want to be a help to my boyfriend, there are times I simply just push myself to do it.
I feel like I’m making him more depressed now. I know this month isn’t easy for him, but I feel like I’m letting him down if there’s nothing I can do to make him feel better. I’m in pain, too, due to my braces no longer fitting as they should. Just trying to walk each day hurts my body. Whenever the equipment can get fixed—however that works (I don’t remember how that got done because it’s already been so long since I’ve had to do this), is really exhausting and tough on my tiny frame. I’ll be relieved whenever this happens.
