I have not experienced this too often, but enough that when it happens I feel shocked and disheartened. Is every person in this world so healthy that no accommodations need to be made? Surely I can’t be the only person in the world with a chronic illness of this magnitude. What do others with tenuous illnesses do? Who are the special medical professionals that they see? Or do they have to wait until an ER visit is required, or a serious dental ailment arises, that brings the care to the forefront?
I am not trying to be difficult; I just want my medication. I am not asking to be treated “special,” but the reality is I have an illness that fluctuates day to day. The irony is that the profession that has the issue with my health is the one that should be familiar with it.
