This essay is an autobiographical exploration of the effects and consequences of disability in the life of a playwright. It is also, by implication rather than by design, an invitation to the able-bodied to reassess their natural responses in their encounters with the disabled. What are the real chances of integration? What might be meant by inclusion?

Keywords: disability; hierarchy; inclusion (of difference); integration; relationships; sex-drive
