By using strong word choices, Mairs comes to terms with the words used to describe “cripple,” by displaying her strength and admittance to her existence as a cripple.

She often referred to the poet, John Donne, throughout the film to relate her illness to what she loved and studied all of her life. It served as symbolism, representing her view the quality of her life and ultimate mortality. She reflected to the times when she was uncompassionate towards her own students and compared it to the feeling of inhumanity she was experiencing in the hospital.

Mairs tries to redeem herself by describing how this woman’s emotional weakness, for running back to her doctor/love interest, is inaccurate, but that is mostly a sexist representation of women and less a misrepresentation of the disabled.

She wraps up her essay

Abuelita had pulled me through the rages of scarlet fever by placing, removing and replacing potato slices on the temples of my forehead; she had seen me through several whippings, an arm broken by a dare-jump off Tio Enrique’s toolshed, puberty, and my first lie.” Therefore, Grandma Luna was there for her all the time growing up as a child even though any of them showed emotions towards the girl to thank her she was still willing take care of her sick and dying grandma. She grew up fast realizing that she didn’t have the emotions and love that a regular girl would have experienced at her age of fourteen.
