Welcome to Paraabled.com. This website is dedicated to advocating for the disabled, and providing entertainment in the form of fictional stories.
I am Russ Thompson. I am a 60-year-old male with Cerebral Palsy. I started this site in October of 2016 to advocate in writing for the Para-Abled and to entertain people with my short stories.
So, why the name Para-abled? Glad you asked! We are familiar with the prefix ‘para’. A paramedic is not a full doctor, but has had some medical training. Same with a paralegal. I want to say something about paranormal, but that is flat weird. A para-abled person is one that is not quite able.
My van has no air conditioner (and If you are not in Texas, that is a BIG problem). My van is not disabled. It comes up short in the heat, but it gets me there. I too have problems, but I am not disabled. I am para-abled.
