Accepting myself, even the parts that hurt me, has been a struggle. But I'm trying.

As a disabled person, I'm telling you right now:
Act disabled.
Stop telling yourself you're acting more disabled than you are.
Crawl to clean your room, use a wheelchair when you're "only" at level 3 pain, wear all the wraps and ice packs
Allow yourself to act disabled and you'll see that it helps you a whole lot when you allow yourself to use any and all tools

this shouldn’t be a hot take but your life has exactly the same value whether you work 7 days a week or 5 days a week or 2 days a week or 0 days a week. 
your life is valuable because it’s your life, and you have a lot to offer the people around you. it doesn’t matter how much you’re able to work. 
the most important thing is that you are as happy and healthy as possible, whatever that means for you.

It's so weird to be disabled and have able-bodied people be jealous of you because "you don't have to work".
Like, homie. My body doesn't work. My brain barely works. You don't want this.

you know what i find infuriating? when you see a healthcare professional, you have to walk a very thin line as you talk about your symptoms and conditions
if i don't baby myself down and use smaller words or talk as if im unaware of parts of my condition (which i am very knowledgeable about) they will dismiss my concerns, assuming im a "google doctor" hypochondriac rather than an intelligent disabled person
i asked my intake nurse at an urgent care today (waited 3 and a half hours for a uti diagnosis btw) what specialist she would recommend for my joint dislocations because they were staying out longer and it hurts
she looked at me and said "Oh I don't know sweetie. I thought you were going to say arthritis, but there's a very long word for what your joints are doing."
ma'am....i know what a subluxation is i just wanted a provider recommendation
honestly as soon as you let them know you're disabled they assume you are just a dumb sweet little baby and the moment you demonstrate any medical understanding of a condition YOU HAVE they get combative and will actively work against your attempts to receive adequate care
and in this case, i apparently did not act "stupid" enough, because they failed to tell me a word i already knew, or that my lab results even confirmed my uti, much less that it was severe enough to be with hematuria- i had to ask for confirmation after she rattled off the prescriptions she was sending and read my discharge papers for my full diagnosis
tl;dr Healthcare providers: stop treating chronically ill and disabled patients like they are not smart enough to be engaged with like the adults that they are
(this includes people with mental and learning disabilities too)

The problem with being chronically ill is that when you become more sick, with more symptoms, people do not understand why its so upsetting.
"But weren't you in pain before?". Yes but this is a new pain that I haven't dealt with before.
"I thought you already had stomach problems?". Yes but this is a new symptom of it that scares me.
"Arent you used to this by now?". No, and I never will be.
Symptoms that have been had for months or years are hard enough to manage in the first place. Developing a new one is scary, and trying to find ways to cope while still juggling everything else is even more so. We are allowed to be upset at our symptoms progressing. It doesn't mean it wasn't bad before. It just means now its bad in another way we arent familiar with. And that sucks.

People who have symptoms but no official (or unofficial) diagnosis are just as welcomed into the Ouch Community as anyone else. I don't care if you're in the "tummy hurted for too long" or the "i have no arms or legs, my skin is made of paper, my bones are made of glass, and I have the most advanced Disease ever" category.
The community is "it hurt and is now my life"

friendly reminder that if you have a hard time eating due to nausea or other chronic illness ickies, just eat what you can eat. even if it’s not particularly “healthy,” getting calories in your body to help it function is more important.

You know what?? I have a really spicy take today guys
Normalize just, giving up, as a disabled person
If you have a bunch of physical conditions that can technically be treated, and maybe treatment over the course of ten years might make you 10% more capable of acting like an abled person
If you don't want to do it, just fucking don't
I am sick and tired to death of abled people's respect being conditional on whether or not I've "done everything I can"
If you would be more happy limiting physical activity and/or relying on a wheelchair for the rest of your life than constantly overexerting yourself to do physio and work out and use up all of your energy "treating" yourself, just fucking do that
We only get one fucking life and I would rather be physically limited and spend my free time doing things that bring me joy and fulfillment than constantly worrying about making myself as abled as possible.
If treatment isn't making a positive difference in your life, who are you really treating yourself for?
Disclaimer: I am not saying every disabled person should just stop treatment, but I am saying that you should decide whether certain treatments are right for you based on your own benefit and not on what's expected of you or what makes your family/friends/doctors happy
We deserve to be respected regardless of how much work we put into "fixing" ourselves. Some things just can't be fixed and sometimes the pain and suffering caused by treatment outweighs the benefits
