Gretability is a blog written by me- a 12 year old girl living in New York City. My name is Greta, and I have a disability called Nemaline Myopathy, which makes my muscles weaker than others. Gretability is a way to inspire people who might be similar to me, and teach people about what life is like when living with a disability.
