“I am not my disability”

It’s taking a lot of work to be able to tell myself, never mind other people, that I face limits. As I get older they are becoming more and more challenging. I used to be able to push myself to walk long distances or stand for hours at a concert, but I’m learning these days to just say that I can’t do something. I wonder a lot what the future brings in that way.

I’m trying to be let myself experience the sadness about feeling left out of things instead of pretending that the sadness doesn’t exist.
