Today, I’m wishing that there were some outward indication of just how much I struggle, every single day, due to having multiple chronic illnesses. I’m not looking for pity, please understand that.
Yes, I know that it could always be much worse. I’m very thankful for all that I’m still capable of doing, don’t get me wrong. Still, it’s difficult to consistently have everyone assume that you can easily do the tasks that you truly do struggle to complete.
Everyday tasks are not easy for me to do, regardless of what they are. I struggle with debilitating fatigue, on a persistent basis. I’m currently dealing with a recurrence of my subglottic stenosis.
After even a brirf period of activity, I’m now gasping for air. No, you can’t tell, just by looking at me, that I’ve already been determined to be fully disabled. I guess I am just craving some type of external validation, for just how much more difficult everything is for me to complete now.
