I am firstly fed up of disability charities and activists continually portraying all disabled people as poor and therefore victims of society who should pay for nothing, because this is in the wider sense not the case. While people with high support needs is more costly, impairment itself has not only affect people on low incomes and therefore many of the disability benefits and perks are going to the risk who do not financially need them.
I am on a low income and that still does not make me poor since I have a good life, a great life as money is not everything. Life is what you make it and I have made an extremely rich life because I have the right attitude to seize the opportunities I have rather than always complaining I have nothing. Poor, in this country, is a state of mind not whether you live on benefits or not despite how much the charities wishes to convince you otherwise.
