So what's an angashore, anyway?

Angashore is a Gaelic word. It can describe a weak, sickly or disabled person, with the implication that such a person is not good for much. Or it can mean an unlucky person, someone to be pitied either because they fit the first definition or through some other bad luck. And it is sometimes used to mean a lazy, idle or mischievous person. Or it is applied to a chronic complainer.

I am disabled, chronically ill and an abuse survivor. And mischievous as all heck, and prone to complaining about anything that bothers me. Oh, and I'm Highland Gaelic by descent. And I'm not dead yet. So welcome, from the Spirited Angashore.
