I have an invisible disability cause by my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) and Fibromyalgia. The post-exertion malaise from a long march and protest would be too much for my body to handle and could set off a dangerous flare up of symptoms. I’m participating virtually because I wish I could be there in person to fight for our right to heath care, equality, and environmental ideals. We need to fight daily in numerous ways so that we do not normalize this president nor his bigotry and hate.
I’m a 26-year-old progressive from Maine and am dealing with the difficulties of chronic invisible illness. Follow me on Instagram @mainelybeth.
