Interview excerpt: The delays in supplying the equipment Maeve needed left her feeling unsupported and reluctant to ask for help in the future.

Image representing Maeve© Disability NarrativesThey didn't provide me with a computer, so I was working on a small laptop. So I asked for a computer, and a desk, and an ergonomic chair, and a footrest. And that didn't go down very well [laughs]. And I think those are the basic things that you need to do your research job. But apparently that was sort of asking for too much. So I haven't asked for anything else since then.

Okay. So you didn't get those things?

I did, eventually.
