As a Young Adult with Chronic Illness ...

As a young adult with chronic illness I want you to know, I don’t need pity. I don’t feel sorry for myself and neither should you.

As a young adult with chronic illness I want you to know, I’m still sick and disabled even though I’m young. I may look okay, but it doesn’t mean I don’t need mobility devices, handicap parking, or even that last seat on the bus.
