Invisible disabilities such as multiple sclerosis need more acceptance and attention in our society. Kira Dodillet is convinced of this. What else is very important to her and what she would probably shock her mother with, she tells us on REHACARE.com.
Name: Kira Lynn Dodillet Age: 27 City: Hamburg, Germany Occupation: Medical supply store clerk, trained nurse Impairment: Multiple Sclerosis, depression
Kira Dodillet: GIFs and Memes, but above all my boyfriend – at home there is always something to laugh about
What have you always been wanting to do and why have you never done this so far?
Kira Dodillet: A face tattoo. I think my mother would have a heart attack.
Which person has influenced you most? And why?
Kira Dodillet: My boyfriend, because he always puts me constructively back on the right track and has never judged or hurt me. The way he treats me, I try to treat other people in return.
You have the chance to become the Commissioner for the Disabled. What would you do first?
Kira Dodillet: I would definitely advocate that invisible disabilities – such as some neurological and especially psychiatric disabilities – receive more education in society and become less taboo.
What is especially near and dear to you?
Kira Dodillet: That even things that are not necessarily beneficial to the illness or disability can sometimes be completely ok. We just have a limited time here on our earth and should not constantly forbid ourselves something.
I would like to be...
Kira Dodillet: our dog Ingo: sleeping, going for a walk, eating and lots of cuddles.
Which question would you like answered the most?
Kira Dodillet: Why are so many people so unsatisfied?
What else I wanted to say...
Kira Dodillet: Take heart! Be loud! Stand up for what you're about to say and carry your head as high as you can.
