Adonia Kyle: Black People Are Left Out


When it comes to the disability conversation, a ton of people are left out; a lot of those people are black people.

For a long time, I felt invisible to my health care providers. My brain misfires and I have episodes of shaking and stuttering and not being able to speak. Doctors told me “this is not real”. I finally got an accurate diagnosis when one of them insisted I get the right tests. It should not be such a struggle, but many people like me face it every day.
