225. Standards of Health 2
This is a continuation of Standards of Health, comic 223.
Assuming I can do the same stuff from day to day is usually pretty aggravating and invalidating. Just ’cause I could do it last week or when I was 15, doesn’t mean I can do it now, you know? But there’s also this really annoying and weird scale that people do. Because you can do X, you must be able to do Y. I’ve seen you make an omelette, therefore you can remember to take your meds on time. No. It does not work like that. There is a culturally accepted standard of “easy” and “difficult”, and just because you fit that standard and can’t relate to my difficulties, that doesn’t mean I am lying or wrong about my own abilities.
