About Me

My name is Ryan Lythall and I’m a 35 year old guy living with a physical disability.

I was born in 1975 with a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy called Nemaline Myopathy. When people find out or see that I’m disabled, they usually react before I even get a chance to say anything.

Don’t feel sorry for me or treat me differently. I have a good life. I’m married and keep pretty busy.

I have many hobbies & interests, but you’ll find out about those in time.

This blog will mainly be about my daily life, current events and basically anything that I feel like writing about.

Please don’t hesitate to leave me comments or contact me. I like finding out who reads this and knowing if you enjoy my blog.

    Hey Ryan,

    I just visited your site! I’m part of the Canadian Disability Studies Association, and we’re coming to Ottawa this spring. Maybe we can network some? Lighten things up a bit among the Scholars?

    Best wishes, Marcy
