Confession time! Before the lesions in my brain appeared, I had a fear of being sick and disabled. I don’t even like to take Advil because it would mess up my liver. Now, I am fully experiencing pain and disability and the discomfort that it all brings. I’m taking medication for many symptoms, which old me never would’ve taken.
So,how does a “health nut” get sick and handicapped? I’ve learned that it can literally happen to ANYONE. In one night, my life dramatically changed, and that could happen to you as well. I want to challenge you to think about this. In one day, you’re unable to walk, talk or eat. Everything that used to be easy is now very hard. When we’re able to be compassionate to our peers in wheelchairs and walkers, we can grow into a less judgmental society. ❤️🙏
