We may have the same diagnosis, but no two people have the exact same battle. In addition some of us have more than one issue.
We all have good days and bad days. (I hope everyone has good days.) Some people push through the bad days, while many of us prefer to rest. I for one rest so I can enjoy the good days and even the so-so ones.
Someone recently said being disabled is an excuse. Let me make it very clear right now… having a disability is not something anyone asked for. Believe me we’d rather not have to stay home when our friends and family are working or doing activities. I know I do many fun things, but I also forego many things I would like to do. So no it’s not an excuse.
I rest before taking trips and when I get back. It’s a matter of self-preservation. I can’t work, because when I did I spent more money on gas than I made. Between migraines and vertigo, I didn’t work much. Stress, lights were big triggers for both. Throw in fibromyalgia and fatigue, I could barely move.
I am glad you can still work. Please don’t tell others that their disability is an excuse. You do not know what they’re going through or what they’ve been through.
Thank you for listening to me rant. Love, Peace and Light! Rita
