The Area I want to expand into

A while ago on here I wrote that I wanted to  get back into psychology again, having taken it at A-level gut going no further. I was thinking about that again today: as a writer and film-maker, I mostly focus on my own experiences as a  guy with a physical disability. But it occurs to me that, in terms of disability and disabled people, physical disability is only part of the story. These days, the term ‘disability’ covers a hell of a lot more than conditions like  cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy or spina bifida. There are also many more people, marginalised by society for all kinds  of reasons, who  I could be writing about. Until now, my stories and scripts have attempted to convey what life is like for someone like  myself; but there’s another group, arguably even more marginalised than physically disabled people, whose stories need telling just as much.  That is an area I now want to expand into as an artist. It will take quite a bit of work, but I think it could be fascinating.
