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 not a child and don’t want to be treated like one. I don’t want to be patronized because I’m sick. I’m still a fully capable adult. 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.

At the bottom line, as a young adult with chronic illness, I just want to be treated with kindness and respect, like any other person.
