Trolling People with Disabilities

I don’t care if people troll online, when they put their identity behind it.  However when people create sock puppet accounts and just spew crap frankly its just stupid.  I had a troll recently attack me saying, I “live off disability checks playing video games, smoking cigars, and sitting in the hot tub at a nice gym.”  Yes I have a disability, hell I’m pretty damn open about it seeing as I own a blog talking about it, and have done very public advocacy testifying in front of Michigan Senate and House Committees on issues related to disabilities while identifying I have a disability.

So yes, I live off disability checks.  I’ve tried to work in a normal work environment and it doesn’t go well.  I actually hate living off disability checks, there is nothing more to hurt your self value like getting a direct deposit every month from the Social Security Administration.  I’m actually working on starting my own business and hoping to soon be off the disability system.  Thanks for asking 🙂

I also do go to the gym, because my doctors tell me I need to go to the gym.  I’m overweight, I also have cholesterol that is a bit higher than normal.  On top of my Autism I have depression that has not been responsive to medications.  So my physical and mental health doctors have encouraged me to go to the gym.  Yes the gym I go to is nicer than the YMCA and I pay a few more dollars, but its also within a half mile of where I live which helps me get there more often, plus they gave me a really generous deal so I don’t pay anything near full price.

I also do sometimes smoke cigars on occasion.  That is not likely the best thing for me, but I am okay with it right now.  But to the anonymous troll who created an account just to belittle me – thanks for your concerns about my health.  I greatly appreciate your deep concern about my health, but I assure you my care providers are also monitoring it and encouraging me to go the gym as well, unlike you who apparently just wants me to eat Cheetos all day.

  1. If you are on Medicare, you should check into getting a medical plan which includes silver sneakers. I have silver sneakers and a wide variety of gyms I can go to for free. I personally like the Y, and that is where I go most often, but there are at least 30 gyms around here I can go to for free.
