Don’t judge a book by its cover
All my life I have been taught that you should not judge a book by its cover. Why doesn’t that go for the disabled?
All my life people have told me what I couldn’t do: I couldn’t finish school, live on my own or make something of my life. I have proved them wrong!
I graduated from high school, I am living on my own and I am currently one semester shy of getting my certificate in early childhood education.
I thought as I grew older people wouldn’t judge me so much but as I grew older people still judge me.
Just because I am different on the outside doesn’t mean I do not want to be treated like everyone else.
Beware of scams
Within the last month, I have received bills for products and services I did not request. The first was a billing for $59.95 for National Geographic Magazine. The return address was not National Geographic and the normal annual renewal is $39.95 or less. I contacted the magazine and was told the billing I received was not from National Geo. and I would be a victim of mail fraud if I paid it.
I sent the billing to our Weatherford postmaster with an explanation of what happened. That letter was returned to me unopened. I hand carried the unopened letter to the Weatherford Post Office, which offered no reason it had been returned to me.
Once before, years ago, I sent our postmaster an example of attempted mail fraud and it also was returned to me unopened. Again I hand carried it to the post office and was told I should mail it to some postal department dealing in mail fraud, but they could not produce the actual address for that department.
