For The Record…

What surprises me the most these days is the fact that very few people will take the opportunity to ask me, or someone in a similar position as me, what we might have learned from our struggles…

It’s almost like it’s not allowed to acknowledge that those who have illness might have gained some insights that others may never have. We may have an illness or disease but we are not morally weak, stupid and irrelevant merely because we had the misfortune of getting sick.

Yetpeople have asked me the most probing, intimate questions about my diet, my meds, my exercise regime, my toilet habits and so on… it seems ridiculous to me at times.

At some point some people seem to think I became my physical disability and illness rather than still being an intellectual and evolving being. I wonder how many others like me feel the same?
