Hi, my name is rachelcl!
I'm a 41-year-old stand-up comedian and writer who has had right-sided hemiplegia since birth. I find that people are so bloomin' ignorant and nasty about disabled folk who don't use wheelchairs. I've had people who know nothing about my medical history tell me that I've got nowt wrong with my right leg, and people telling me that I shouldn't be living an independent life, as well as people accusing me of being a disability hate criminal just for walking.
