We don’t really realize how much the world is designed for the healthy until we become ill.
As my uncle liked to say, “you don’t see a lot of chronically ill politicians.”
The internet of course has changed things, many things in many good ways,
but the day to day living…even just having the mental energy to put together a’to-do’ list,
is energy not always there.
I’m over that I look healthy. There are many sick people out there who look healthy. You know who you are. I think of it more now as a privacy blanket. It’s really no one’s business, is it? Or a silver of a chance of normalcy…because when I do find the energy to ‘do something’, it’s nice to look normal. I can fit in for an hour or two.
I’m just grateful to still be here.
