My name’s Meaghan, and I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy (a form of Muscular Dystrophy). I’ve had it since I was 4, but could walk until I was about 6. I’m 24 now, and after 2 decades of being disabled I’ve mostly figured out how to navigate in a world built for people with feet, not wheels. My muscles are weak, but my sense of humor is strong enough to make up for it – usually.
I live in midcoast Maine, much to my chagrin, where I work as an office manager at a marina and get to spend my days making lists and talking on the phone. In my free time, I cuddle with my Chihuahua while I dream of tropical climates.
