Gina is on a Roll

Gina is on a Roll Disability related news, ADA information, and advocacy for everyBODY. I think it's important for people to be exposed to the world of disability to have a better understanding and more acceptance.

No pity parties here, just keggers.

YOOOOOOO LOOK AT THIS CUSTOM KNIFE COMING MY WAY thanks to Wheelchair Woodworker (Steve)!!!!!

Due to my limited hand function I struggle with using traditional knives. Unfortunately all of the adaptive knives on the market are made for five-year-olds and are cheap/dull. I finally have a tool in the kitchen I am proud of, something that will help me master my craft and cut off my pinky!!!

His IG is @wheelchairwoodworker

WHOOP! WHOOP! What quad needs a pinky anyway?

Inside Gina's Head

I have been pretty quiet and I have a reason why. I have been painting, a lot.

I’m keeping the page because my Arizona is Arizonans with Disabilities: Information, News, Events, Buy/Sell, & More group is attached and I think it’s a wonderful group that I would hate deleting.

That being said, as far as advocacy I will continue to be involved but I am taking a step back from social media advocacy to focus on my painting.

Thank you everyone for all of your support and fight over the years! If you’re interested in what I’ve been up to pop over to my website…

I had an amazing opportunity to sit down with the author of Fire Interview and Gilbert Fire Captain Brendon Trainer to participate in a Storytellers Podcast.

This is my story.

Be warned there are not many topics we do not touch on, including s*x and drugs. There may be a few times I even say the F-word. 🥴 Don’t tell me I didn’t warn you. 😈

WTF?! 🤯😭😖🤬

In today’s day and age it’s pretty shocking that people with disabilities are still dealing with this level of discrimination. This is actually illegal. This is a public business. A simple portable ramp would do the trick.

What’s even more disappointing is that who knows how many people saw this and said nothing because it does not impact them (now at least). Why is it permissible to discriminate against people with disabilities…in a world when we are being told that any type of discrimination is wrong. If this were making a reference to someone’s race, gender identity, size, or political affiliation people would be up in arms. You literally put up a post and might as well say “people who use wheelchairs are not allowed” and people say nothing.

It hurts. It’s sad. Social justice should not apply to a select few. 😔

This is the face of someone who has had 5 major surgeries. This is the face of someone who has suffered paralysis for nearly 18 years. This is the face of someone who has been divorced. This is the face of someone who has been denied access to businesses because of their wheelchair and only their wheelchair. This is the face of someone who understood personally the reason behind the #metoo movement. This is the face of someone who has a close relationship to physical pain. 

However…

This is the face of someone that refuses to be unhappy. This is the face of not giving up. This is the face of acceptance. 

Keep in mind no matter what the struggle, it’s OK to be happy. Find purpose, believe in yourself, and chase your dreams. ❤️

Question with boldness and PREVAIL!!!!

After today’s post there are a handful of people that have ordered hand controls and will now have independence they thought they could not have otherwise. 🔥🔥🔥

People with disabilities get taken advantage of so often and it is heartbreaking.

This is becoming more and more of a problem. Completely unacceptable! Imagine how angry you are when just your luggage is treated poorly, what if it was your legs?

DELTA DAMAGED MY WHEELCHAIR TODAY!!! ♿️✈️ I just arrived back in Atlanta & this (pictured) is how Delta Air Lines brought me my wheelchair post-flight. The right armrest & joystick, which I drive with, are dragging the ground and are broken (the arrow is pointing to where the joystick should be). The armrest will not even stay up for me to drive because the locks/screws have been damaged so badly. This is terrible, but not at all surprising, unfortunately. Airlines continuously damage wheelchairs… and they keep getting away with it. It’s sad & disheartening. Share this & tag Delta! EVERY SINGLE TIME that something like this happens, we need to make it go viral. The only way to make airlines realize how important of an issue this is is to hurt their bottom line, and negative publicity will do that. Airlines need to step up and train their crew on how to handle wheelchairs immediately!

DRIVING!!! I know this is going to p**s a few people off but I don’t care. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Did you know that third-party individuals charge approximately $150 an hour to train people with disabilities on how to use adaptive equipment for driving?

I have seen a few posts about driving and people responding that a certification is required by a third-party group for driving. That is not true. There is no requirement for you to have training, instead you are required to retake the test with the MVD should you have any adaptive equipment.

So what does that mean for people using simple hand controls? That means you can just teach yourself and take the test with the MVD. You can buy the hand controls online. Be sure to ask other people for recommendations. That being said if some of you are being held back from driving thinking that you have to pay $700 for training, that is not the case!

I recommend doing the training when you have a complicated system for driving, if you are using simple hand controls you should be able to teach yourself. I have taught every single able-bodied person in my life how to drive with hand controls and they get it in a matter of a couple of hours…max.

Best of luck and I hope all of you find the independence you’re searching for. ❤️

Story time (picture in association):

Yesterday was a rough day. In my frustration with life I exclaimed “what else have you got for me universe?” BIG MISTAKE. My car started making a noise literally less than 10 minutes later and then this happened...

So I go the Sprouts near me. Mind you, I didn’t really wanna get ready for the day so I put on little short spandex shorts with lace on the side, a black T-shirt, and I tossed on a hat. I always wear my hat backwards, I feel like I look goofy if I wear them any other way. So you get the picture, I’m not exactly glam. Whatever, it’s a grocery store.

As a wheelchair user there is absolutely no way in God’s green earth that you will live a life without hearing ”Don’t get a speeding ticket in that thing.” Yesterday was no exception. HOWEVER...plot twist.

As soon as I rolled in the door an older gentleman was standing there near the section of weakness, breads and pastries. His eyes locked on my chair. He HAD to interact with me. His brain spinning as he thinks to himself he’s got a good one and says to me, “don’t get a speeding ticket in that thing...YOUNG MAN.” My head whipped around faster than a spinning top. 

Young, man? Young...MAN?! YOUNG MAN?! Oooooooouch. 😂😂😂😂  I see you universe, and I raise you a glass. You win. I’m sorry. Flowers are on the way. 😘

Educational moment: Most wheelchair users do not want to hear you ask them if they want to race or that don’t get a speeding ticket. I’m just wanting to do my grocery shopping, sometimes it’s nice that I forget I’m different or disabled, but statements like that are a swift reminder. 

*read the hat.

Nick Springer Dies: Gold Medal-Winning Paralympic Athlete And Team USA Member Was 35

A lot of hearts are breaking with the news of Nick’s passing. For those of us that had the pleasure to spend any time with him, you knew immediately his personality was larger than life. Nick was accomplished, funny, talented, and bold.

My condolences go out to his friends and family. The world is a little less bright after losing one of our stars. ❤️

Nick Springer, a Paralympics medalist for Team USA and son of entertainment publicist Gary Springer, died at age 35 on Wednesday, April 14. No cause of death was given, but his demise was described…

I was asked by a doctor “were you ever suicidal?” I thought deeply...

No. I haven’t been. I know that is surprising for a lot of people, as I have been told numerous times by insensitive individuals that they would kill themselves should they be in my position. However it’s true, I’ve never wanted to kill myself.

That being said, this question triggers a lot of emotions. I could see the surprise in his face when I genuinely said no. I went on to explain that I have always had purpose after my injury. My body is broken, but my mind deserves to live life to the fullest.

Su***de is an all too common topic in the private spinal cord injury groups. My heart aches for those genuinely contemplating su***de. I can’t even imagine the sadness some of the people in these groups are feeling. We as a society have failed people with disabilities. We have failed to provide them with transportation, housing, and opportunities.

Having this conversation reminded me what a serious issue this is. I just wanted to take this moment to let those of you who are not in the best place know you are not alone and there are so many opportunities out there. It may not seem like it in the present, but the future can hold such wonderful happiness.

You deserve joy. You deserve happiness.

❤️

We can all help prevent su***de. The Lifeline provides 24/7, free and confidential support for people in distress, prevention and crisis resources for you or your loved ones, and best practices for professionals.

“So can you have s*x?” WELCOME TO ONLINE DATING. 🤣😂🤣

Happy Valentine’s Day my loves! I just want to give you guys my pretty honest assessment of dating with a disability. It’s not easy, you have to be extra awesome and try extra hard to catch people’s attention. It gets exhausting.

As a woman I can count on the usual gamut of questions like “can you have s*x and can you feel” after they have pretty much just said hello. Men are curious what it’s like to be with a wheelchair user because men are curious in general...but this is new territory.

That being said I love it. I FRACKING love it. I highly encourage online dating for anyone, especially people with disabilities. You’re able to put that out there on the forefront and you don’t have to deal with as much rejection directly.

That leads me to my next point. Then you meet someone. From past relationships and insecurities related to my disability I often put up walls. Those are times that I just have to remind myself it’s worth the risk and that heartache can build character.

Recently I started seeing someone. It seems like at the beginning of a relationship I am reminded more often of what my limitations are. I often would like to do things with my partner that I simply cannot do. Guess what? He’s cool with it! He accepts me as I am.

This is just a little reminder that if you are looking for someone, that someone is out there. Just remember that you have to take the risk and put yourself out there in the first place.

You can’t win if you don’t play.

Hey Gina seem this yet?
For anyone who thinks that parking abuse isn’t a problem for the disability community to address, I give you the Amazon fake parking pass... they look real enough and most law enforcement isn’t looking for accessible parking abuse... how are we supposed to get equal access when we are constantly competing with those who want to take advantage of the system?? Handicap Parking Permit
Perhaps a few minutes could be spent reading this mighty article.
This made me think of you...is he Parked in a handicap spot? And if he is why?
