I’m not even mad or irritated at you I’m just upset. You honestly hurt my feelings and I know sometimes I just shut down and don’t talk but I’d rather do that then say something really mean. I’m sorry I got off of work a little late but you have to understand it’s work and I have to show my commitment, I’m a seasonal employee and I want to keep my job so I have to say yes when they need me.


I don’t talk about my illness so that you will feel sorry for me. I talk about it so you will know what I’m going through, why I am the way I am. I don’t want your pity. I want your understanding.

And sometimes, I talk about it because I had a bad day and just like you, talking about the bad thing makes me feel better. It just so happens I have a lot of bad days and my illness is usually at the core of it.
