As of late I've been feeling a little disparate and very much like a burden on the tax payer, in spite of knowing perfectly well that I can't change things and that it isn't my fault. This is a very timely reminder for me that - actually - I earn every penny of my disability payments simply by trying to live as normal a life as possible. Recovering from serious epilepsy-related injuries takes time and a good deal of effort on the part of my body's system and this often leaves me too weak to get out of bed, if I haven't broken something and am just unable to get out of bed anyway. I am no wimp, thank you very much, so if I say that I am incapacitated for any reason then it means that I am incapacitated!
And I work hard, every day, just at getting better and trying to shuffle about as normally and as safely as I can.
