I wear these socks daily. I know that compression helps my pain and dizziness and I also know I don't use them if I don't like the way they feel or look.

Hey there!

Welcome to Not Your Grandma's

Here at Not Your Grandma’s we are a. community first and foremost. When I was diagnosed no one told me I was disabled, no one told me how to use mobility aids and no one handed me a guide to handling it all. It was the disability community that saved me and taught me to be proud of my disability and I want that for you too.

LEARN MORE

WHEN YOU BECOME DISABLED NO ONE GIVES YOU A HANDBOOK, UNTIL NOW

Maybe your newly diagnosed and feeling a bit lost.

Maybe you're not but still as confused about how to actually handle all of this.

80% of disabled people aren’t born disabled but become disabled. 

I never knew this but once I heard it clicked with me. I wasn’t failing at being disabled, it’s just no one told me how to be disabled and there wasn’t any real representation of living a happy life with disability.

WELCOME TO THE COMMUNITY!
