Gaslighting :(

Disabled people are also expressing frustration that accommodations we’ve been told were impossible are now becoming the norm. Karrie Higgins, a disabled activist and writer, tweeted their frustration about the situation: “Are you seeing a pattern here? When disabled people NEED an accommodation, we are denied & gaslit.  EVV doesn't work for many of us.  Consumer directed care was working.  DMAS apparently wants us isolated in nursing homes to die.
