Silent Witness is a crime drama on the BBC. The 2 part programme 'One Day' has a strong theme about disability and care. Not CFS/ME but still relevant. One of the main characters in Silent Witness, Clarissa, is disabled. She gets a lot of good lines in these episodes that make me feel proud but also got me crying. The episode is on iPlayer at the moment in the UK. I'm in and out of accepting I have CFS/ME, almost a year and a half in to being ill. I still have a lot to learn about the shift in my position in society now that I have a disability. CFS/ME is somewhat invisible so I'm sure I don't get treated as differently as people with visible disabilities. However I am still affected by the idea that people with disabilities are 'less valuable' to society. It would still really hurt me if someone made me feel less valuable because of my disability, probably because there's a part of me that believes that's true. I want to shed that part of me. I want to feel equal to everyone regardless of how ill I am. Seeing people like the actress playing Clarissa put up a fight for equality makes a difference to me.
