Stella Young: I’m not your inspiration, thank you very much | Talk

 
I don't want to be told I inspire you -- I just want you to come over and help with the chores I need help with because I simply cannot do them myself.
 
And I don't want to be compared to your friend who also has CFS, but never complains about the problems it causes ... because she has a husband and child who do all the things she can't do, therefore, it causes her far fewer problems than it causes me.  She's not trying to hold down a job with CFS -- she has a husband to do that.  She's not trying to do yardwork or housecleaning with CFS -- she has a family to do that.  If she were in my position of trying to juggle doing it all with a major disability, she wouldn't be so sunny about it ... she'd be complaining, too, that she needs help and can't get it.
 
Go up to the search box at the top of this page and put in SuperCrip.  Read what I've said in the past about that concept.
