Gatekeeping Disability

Most all of the people who are now gone out of my life, had one thing in common.

They were gatekeeping disability!

I truly wonder how many of you have noticed that same behavior in your (old) associates?

It is now coming together for me, and they were all basically dismissive of any views I held—especially if my opinions differed from theirs!

Am I being paranoid, dumb, or am I correct (that their dismissiveness was out of line)… that they were being abusive?

Some of their attitudes were, how dare I have an opinion on the state of the world? And, how dare I even attempt to have a discussion on it?

I think that they think (boy, this is exhausting), that I have severe mental illness and must be capable of doing more, since I have a thought in my head.

To me, that makes no sense (given my disability and how it impacts my life from day to day).

Do any of you relate to this? And, do you feel that your (old) associates’ attitudes towards your viewpoints is/was abusive?

What I am reflecting on is this small town attitude (since many of my old friends are from small towns, and they have this mentality), which I feel is abusive.

What do you do?

I feel that they all basically told me to STFU!

Not that any of this matters anymore (well, it does a little bit), but that’s what happened!
