Mm yep. Different illnesses, same shit.

Well, I do have endometriosis. And I’ve been homeless this entire past year. Because my credit sucks. Because I’ve been chronically ill since age 12. But it took its worst turn when I was in college. Yay for dropping out because they don’t understand chronic illness!

Yay for paramedics who always assume you’re an addict! Cops, too. Because they believe you’re on drugs rather than truly sick. Ironically, the drugs you actually need are much harder to come by.

Yay for losing jobs because your “productivity” is down. Because the stress of the job drains your spoons and leaves you out of commission for months.

Fuck healthcare. There’s no such thing as health for us and I’m damn sure no one actually cares.

Yay about choosing between quick and slow death, both painful.

Sigh.
