A Service Dog For Ali
This is Disabled Beauty Ali.
Ali is 19 and lives in Kentucky. She has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) - which causes severe anxiety and depressive symptoms, panic/anixety attacks, and dizziness. Ali was diagnosed with OCD at the age of 3 and it has progressively gotten worse. Her dizziness continues to get worse as well.
Ali is planning on training her own service dog with the assistance of PetSmart trainers and her psychiatrist. She has found a wonderful dog named Joni who she believes will be the perfect service dog to fit her needs. Although Ali can afford to take care of Joni, training and service dog supplies are expensive and hard to manage on a college student budget.
If you can’t help Ali with a small donation, please reblog!!

Hi, I’m Disabled Beauty Kayla. I am 26 years old, 4’6”, and I have Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele. I also have Hydrocephalus, Osteoarthritis, General Anxiety, Social Anxiety, & Depression. I use both forearm crutches and a wheelchair to help with mobility when I go out in public, depending on my activity/pain level. I have had 9 surgeries since the day I was born.
In the last 10 months, I have lost over 40 lbs simply by clean eating. I gave up meat, refined sugar, & white grains. I eat as healthy as possible because working out is really difficult with the chronic pain I have. As I have lost weight, I feel better, have more energy, and have been in a lot less pain. I still have a long way to go before my journey to good health is done, but I am off to a great start. I love to inspire others to start their own health journeys.
I am an at-home nanny. Taking care of kids is a passion of mine, and I would love to have kids of my own some day. I also love photography and writing.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions or want a new friend. :)
This is Disabled Beauty Elizabeth. Elizabeth was born with a neural tube defect called Spina Bifida. There are 166,000 people living in the USA with Spina Bifida. Living expenses due to medical bills for a person with Spina Bifida can be nearly 1 million dollars in one’s lifetime. The Spina Bifida Association of America helps to educate, advocate and support those living with Spina Bifida and their families. One way in which they do this is by hosting Walk N Rolls for Spina Bifida around the country. Elisabeth the team captain for team ROLLIN’ WITH THE HOMIES and our goal is to raise at least $1,500 for the SBAA!!! We have included our team poster with ways to donate, a picture of Yellow Spina Bifida awareness bracelets. Elizabeth is making and selling for $10.

This is Disabled Beauty Kate. Kate is 25 and is a happily married Navy wife. Kate used to be a dog trainer and the dog pictured with her was in 2 national commercials. Kate’s health has gotten worse and now she needs a mobility assistance dog. She is trying to fundraise to get a mobility dog from a program to help her regain some independence and let her husband go back on a submarine. Even if you can’t donate to help Kate, please reblog!
This is Disabled Stud Jon with his service dog Annabelle. Jon has has a severe mobility disability. He was diagnosed with severe psoriatic arthritis. His disease has eaten away at bone in his body and he has permanent bone and joint damage. It is very difficult for Jon to stand up from a sitting position, and balance properly when he walks. This is where the beautiful Annabelle comes in. Annabelle is a licensed and trained mobility service dog. As strong as she is, it takes a lot on her back and legs to properly brace for Jon to stand. Jon also has to take at home injections every 2 weeks for life and when he injects, it is very painful for him and that’s when Annabelle is needed the most. He cannot stand back up from an injection without her help. We are in dire need of a Bold Lead Designs mobility harness…and as many of our followers know, the cost is quite high. If there is anyone that would be willing to help Jon and Annabelle get to their goal, we are including a link to their Go Fund Me page. http://www.gofundme.com/Harness-4-AnnabelleJon We know times are tough, so maybe if you are not able to donate, we would appreciate you sharing the link to help them. Jon’s family is thankful to all of Beautifully Disabled’s followers for reading and sharing.
This is Disabled Beauty Kristen. Kristen is 18 and has PTSD and a seizure disorder
This photo was taken at prom, where she won prom queen. She has a service dog, Aaru. Kristen even featured in a local performance of Pride and Prejudice and the director was able to accommodate her and made Aaru a member of the cast.
I’m Disabled Beauty Kaitlyn from Texas. I have Autism (diagnosed as Aspergers just a few years ago, but I think Autism better describes me). I also have bad Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, problems with self-harm, ADD, I’ve been diagnosed with Bipolar but I don’t think I am (I was diagnosed at age 4 so…), Separation Anxiety to the extreme, and suspected Sensory Processing Disorder, among other possible things.
I’m trying very hard to get a job right now, not just because I need money and my family does too, but also because I need to provide equipment for the service dog I’m training, Branson. He’s a six-month-old Lab/Dalmatian/Pitbull mix.

I’m Disabled Beauty Amber, from Boston, and I have a learning disability called Dyscalculia, which, among other things, affects my ability to understand even basic mathematics, as well as impairing things like my perceptions of time, depth, and distance, and also causes me to have a very poor sense of direction. In a society where mathematical aptitude is absolutely necessary, I’ve always felt awkward and unintelligent.
It’s taken me awhile to accept that having a learning disability doesn’t mean I can’t be smart or do great things in life. And I intend to do great things. :)
I also run a blog where fellow dyscalculics can talk about their experiences and seek help getting a diagnosis.
I’m Disabled Beauty Ivy, 23 years old, and recently diagnosed! Officially, I have Fibromyalgia, Hypermobility Joint Syndrome, and some permanent bone and ligament damage from injures. We’re still awaiting some test results to see about other things, so to take my mind off it I attended this funny costume event today with a bunch of friends. Everyone was running around and playing with props, and since I couldn’t participate much one of my lovely friends started bringing absurd things (like the pink wand) to me and acting silly to get me to laugh for pictures.
buildyourlifeforyou asked: I find this blog more insulting than my words can describe. Do you have a disability even? I'm sorry my assumption but I'd bet just about anything that you do not.
Did you even read the first blog post? The point of this blog is to show that disabled people can be beautiful and that people are welcome to submit any picture that THEY think shows their true beauty. And for your information, I have Fibromyalgia, C-PTSD, Epilepsy, and Panic Disorder. So please read thoroughly next time before jumping to assumptions.
I find your words insulting. I also feel that you have insulted the brave people who have stood up and taken the chance to submit their pictures to this blog.
