Living while millennial is hard at the best of times – but imagine if you had an impairment that stopped you participating in ordinary life. This episode we speak to Sara Gingold, disability activist and consult, about the experience of young people living with a disability in a country that doesn’t cater for their needs and sometimes doesn’t even believe in their disability.
Sara describes her own experience of managing Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) sometimes known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). We talk about the systems that are set up to help people live the lives they want to live, like the NDIS and disability support pension, whether they work for young people, why everyone deserves a seat on the train and the terrible scourge on society that is staircases.
