Valid or Invalid?

Hello Jumblies,

I have just come back from the Transverse Myelitis conference. Regular readers will know that this is my particular Jumble.

You can find out more on http:www.myelitis.org.uk/the-tms-magazine.html

Anyway, there we were. About 150 of us from all over the UK. Some in motorised wheelchairs, some with walkers, some with sticks- one even had a beautiful service dog. So, a rather motley crew. All of us with some degree of disability- which really puts us all in the category of invalid.

Funny word, that. The Oxford dictionary has two definitions:   A person made weak or disabled by illness or injury;

Not valid

Well!!  150 of us, maybe not strong physically, but.. here is the definition of Valid   :based on truth or reason;

                                                                                                                                  able to be accepted

Can you see the steam coming out my ears? Jumblies – we are Valid!

Never, ever, ever let us think we are less than able to be accepted.

Proud to be a Jumblie. That’s all

This is a cute motivational sleeveless tee would be cute if ribbon attached the back ( maybe green!):)
