Anonymous said: Is this a devotee blog?
What do you mean a devotee blog? I’ve never heard the phrase. This blog is for disabled people to show that they be just like anyone else!
Thanks to our first commenter!! This is NOT a devotee blog!! This blog is run by disabled people and for disabled people!! People may look at it for their own reasons but that is NOT the reason it was created!
I’ve noticed that we’ve gotten several incomplete submissions recently. Our submission guidelines are clearly posted at the top of the blog so please follow them. We will not chase you down for your details, that’s a big waste of spoons! Thank you!
While Lizzie has not submitted this to us to be a Disabled Beauty, I found this on the internet was incredibly moved by it!
I’m Disabled Beauty Lin, a 27 year old, I live in Croatia and my disability is Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
Living with a disability from my earliest age, but still have not accepted that I have a deformity because of scoliosis.
My wish is that I feel satisfied in my body, and because of that I follow blogs like this. :)
A Service Dog For Ali
This is Disabled Beauty Ali.
Ali is 19 and lives in Kentucky. She has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Panic Disorder and psychogenic dizziness.
Ali will be getting a service dog through K9 Lifeline’s AZ’s Kentucky Branch. This is going to cost Ali about $6000 which is actually on the low end of getting a service dog from a program. Ali is not asking for a hand out but for a hand out. Ali is making and selling things to help raise funds. She is also going to school. If you want to help Ali, check out Ali’s Fundraising Page to see the awesome things you can get and help Ali out on her way. If you can’t afford to help out Ali monetarily, 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.

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.
