Disability is intensely personal. It affects your bodily senses and functions and your thinking; it leaves its traces in self concept and social identity. It produces pain and shame as well as desire and achievement. It opens doors to new life-giving meaning and/or to stumbling down the stairs of self-abnegation. And if it is not your impairment but the journey of one you love, its personal impact is just as intense. Different but no less transforming. This paper explores the recently announced National Disability Insurance Scheme and some of the challenges around disability in society.
