This is something that just makes me so angry. And the jerk I just dated did it to me. And I've had other ignorant people do this to me. People start saying, I should do this or that. Oh, you can do your own hair, so why don't you get a job in a salon? Or, you're so good with computers, you should be making good money, go work for a company. UGH! First of all, if I could do those things, I'd be doing them, and I don't need some idiot suggesting what I should be doing with my life. Second of all, what part of not well enough, on disability because I'm too sick to work do these people not understand? I don't care how well I look to them. I am not well. I can pass for well for a certain amount of time, and then I crash very badly. Also, how I live my life and what I do is NOT up for discussion. It never has been. No one has the right to come into your life and tell you how to live your life. Do I butt into their lives and tell them what they should be doing? No, I don't. Seriously, this really makes me mad. I do what I can do. And I often still do surveys to make some money to supplement my income. I'm sorry these idiots don't consider that to be work, but it actually is a form of work. It might be low paying work, but it's still a form of work. And most the time, I'm so sick from the POTS lightheaded attacks or the pain I get and the crushing fatigue and the cognitive symptoms that all I can do in a day is feed my cat. But I shouldn't have to justify my life and how I live it to anyone. People should try having this before telling us how to live and work.
