    I was in the Newspaper recently in April

    In the last few months, I've been struggling a big issue that has happened to me. I'm posting the article for you all to read.
    http://www.thestar.com/news/transpor...trans#comments

    Neeedless to say, I do not have the the transportation anymore so I'm trapped at home and no where to go since I'm unable to do the public transportation.

    You may ask any questions to me. I thought I'd tell you guys since you are like family.






    To all my friends here..I love each and every one of you

    Wow that is crap that they cut you off. I really hope you can find a way to finish school. I'm surprised the TTC doesn't take doctors letters for appeals.

    Thanks so much Dave!!!!

    Yeah they don't. They don't even want my doctors calls or anything. It's really sad. I can't go out and meet my friends anymore at all. I'm stuck at home. I can't depend on my parents about taking me places.

    Oh, wow, Arti! I had no idea! That's outrageous that they did that! Have you made any progress on that front? How did you end up being in the newspaper? It's great that you're speaking out about it and I hope you can start being transported again. You'd think if it interfered with you going to school they'd be a little more understanding! Well, keep fighting for it, Arti!

    In other news, you look smokin' in that picture!

    Tiffany: Thanks, I hope so

    Mike: No, the progress has been very slow. My mom thinks some big hot shot is trying to prevent me from getting the rides anymore. We're going to court if they don't cooperative with our lawyers. I've had this since I was 5 and then we stopped getting the rides until I was 17. I had surgery on my legs to fix my leg problem which was great. Wheel Trans helped me get to school and go to appointments. It's crazy. It helped a lot and benefited me. My mom contacted the newspaper to get the word out. It was crazy tho. I've been really depressed and so on. This is the one of the reasons why.
    ha ha, I don't look attractive.

    Arti - I am so sad to hear you are going through this and dealing with all this drama! But I am glad they brought awareness to it, and I am so proud of you and your family for fighting for what is right. It is so beyond stupid that just because you weren't using a cane and had a big purse that they could come to this conclusion! That is beyond crap. And to have these people make a snap judgement based on that is insane, a doctor should be making the assesment, not these idiots. Ugh.

    Thanks steph! Yeah I know. It's just a sad situation because our society is basically saying that I have to look handicap to get this service. I rather look normal then look like a person that needs to look handicap
