    ...the hard part is going to a university in a basically redneck conservative area and try and get help because you are disabled, though not visibly so.  I can't tell you the number of times she has literally been chewed out because someone thought she was trying to take something from other "really" disabled people.  

    Though true, it wasn't at some of the more liberal universities.  But liberal anything in Houston is a rather comical concept.

      People dealing with the disabled should certainly know better!

      I wonder if having her medical records might help.

      Do think of contacting the U of Houston.  She could consider trying to talk to the women's studies program, which will be familiar with women being dismissed because they don't fit into the standard categores.
