I've been hesitant to share about my experience with myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.), especially professionally, because, I've worried people will doubt my abilities and strength. I am realizing, however, that people can just as well see my abilities and strength as incredible and perhaps even be inspired!
As a person with such a potentially debilitating condition as M.E., I am doing very well. Most people do not even know I have a chronic health condition. There is value in sharing about our difficulties. Being vulnerable in safe ways helps us relate to and learn from each other, manage and heal.
