Women and NDIS difficulties
Dot last edited by
"Women are more likely to be diagnosed with disabilities that don’t fit as well within the medicalised model of disability that has taken over the NDIS. One analysis, for example, found “painful and socially disabling disorders” such as arthritis, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are more common in women – but it’s difficult to get support for these conditions."

Great article, thank for sharing @dot . I am already overwhelmed by it all. It took nearly a year for my old gp to just fill out her section of the form and it wasn’t very comprehensively done. I’m fully expecting it to be rejected once I submit it. The whole process is just monumentally difficult it seems, which is ironic considering it’s supposed to help people with disabilities.
