Sara Corbett, New York Times Magazine - July 17, 2014
I don’t think everyone is fully on board with the idea that people with “mental illness” are also disabled people, subject to similar experiences and treated in some of the same ways as wheelchair users, deaf and blind people, and people with cognitive impairments. Without meaning to, I think comedian Maria Bamford proves that the connection is valid. Read the New York Times Magazine profile, watch some of her webisodes, and if you have disabilities, you’ll recognize a lot, especially her imitations of the weird and amusing ways family and friends sometimes treat us.
Disability life, ideas, identity, culture, commentary, and politics.
