I had hoped to make it a march in person and hope to tolerate the crowds, I woke to cramps. Therefore, it feels more like a day of rest than protest.
I claim a psychiatric disability dealing with Depression or Mood disorder NOS (Not Otherwise Specified); PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and BPD (Borderline personality disorder). I am in recovery from NSSI (Non-suicidal self-injury). General Medical Conditions include hay fever; GERD; IC (condition of bladder. Sometimes, there are days one wants to avoid the crowds and stay home.
Overall, I managing conditions or disabilities well and trying to rise above. However, I still have barriers. I still have off days, including days that going out might be difficult.
