Disabled and on Medicaid

It doesn't feel great to talk about this sometimes, because I'd like to be an in-charge progressive activist and not think about my disability or how I've been discriminated against. I was born with cerebral palsy and Medicaid(AHCCCS here) helps pay my attendants, currently my mother, so I can do many things able-bodied people take for granted. In-home supports like that keep people like me from being institutionalized.
