This may be the worst possible time for me to try and write about chronic illness. I'm feeling worse than usual. I'm tired and I am completely overwhelmed by everything "disability.” Where do I even begin is an understatement. First, let me be honest. This is not going to be one of my more typical positive pieces. At least not at the beginning. Knowing my nature, I'll find something good in all of this by the end, if you can make it that far. You may just want to bail out now.
