Best Disability Article Read In Bed On My iPhone When I Couldn’t Get To Sleep

Caitlin Wood, The Hairpin - September 25, 2012

I didn’t even have my glasses on. Reading stuff on my iPhone, in bed, in the dark, is my last-resort move to combat insomnia. The problem here was that far from making my sleepy, this piece by Caitlin Wood energized me. None of what she says in the article is especially new to me, but her tone is fantastic … funny, assertive, and self-depricating all at the same time.

Then I had to follow the link to Where’s Lulu?, and it was all over. The only reason I slept at all was that my phone ran out of juice.
