Dear The Able-bodied (Especially friends and co-workers)

Dear Friends, co-workers, and customers and really anyone who needs to read this,

This is something that I’ve been thinking about for a while now. Since really, I got my disability aids at work. I can’t publicly claim where I work, but I’m thankful to my employer for following the law and willingly and even actively getting my aids for me. It took 10 months last year for me to get a chair and automatic doors that I control with a remote.

These. Are. Not. A. Luxury. I’ve been really struggling to not feel guilty for these new two things that I have because people I work with and even some customers act like this is a luxury. I know it’s not but fighting for people to understand has been very difficult.

I can’t tell you how much I want to be able bodied. How much I want to be able to not be in pain all the f-ing time. How much I want to be able to work full time. How much I want to do simple tasks like opening a heavy door example.

But I can’t and I’m trying my very hardest and my aids make it so it’s a little more even playing field. I still can’t work more than 12 hours a week but hopefully I can do more soon. Although, I have said that before and my Fibro disagrees with me usually.

I say this with kindness and only want people to gain understanding from this.

As always, thanks for reading!
