About CWD (Couples With Disabilities)

Information about relationships and disabilities and/or chronic illness often assumes one member of the dyad is the "caregiver" and one needs care. Since most people will suffer from some sort of disability at some time in their lives, this seems presumptive. Carl Wilkerson & Pattie Thomas each face disabling chronic illnesses. Each strive to provide care to the other when flare-ups occur. While this dynamic colors everything in the relationship, you may find being disabled the least interesting thing about them. They share their experiences to help other couples with disabilities.
