I Don’t Need Pity

November 9, 2018

That is the worst thing you can do to a disabled person. I put people who want to pity me on ignore. Yes I infuse, because I have no insulin, yes I take medication. What part of “I bust my butt to be positive,” do you people not understand? I’m positive so that everybody feels good. It isn’t hard anymore, unlike how hard it was in high school because I was mistreated when I wasn’t positive and I couldn’t help it. I’m trying to be positive now because I’m really good at deflecting curiosity. My insulin pump is obvious to people on the street.

I’m doing a great job keeping my head above water. But yes, the thing is, I fractured my tibia and dislocated my kneecap at the gym two years ago. Apparently, there is no record that this ever happened. The thing is, pity is useless to disabled and chronically ill people. It is such a useless exercise. This is only because disabled people don’t need it or want it unless genuinely ill. To not help a sick person feel better is something sociopaths do, not normal people. It is rude to expect sick people to come to work. Or to spread your germs at an office.
