Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.

ableism with chronic pain
one thing i dont see in disability discussions often is how sometimes its hard to get a diagnosis of what you have causing you pain. like you literally cant afford additional testing. even with insurance, invasive tests can get RIDICULOUSLY expensive. hell at my HRT clinic alone they have a sign that says they can bill you additionally if you so much as DISCUSS a health concern unrelated to your visit.
i mean its fuuucked but i just wish people would stop acting surprised when i tell them, as im laying for several hours a day on the couch or in bed in pain, that i dont know what i have. even as its progressively getting worse. plus, working a 40 hour/week job you may not even have TIME to schedule an appointment for diagnosis, or further testing. our current system is fucked beyond belief and no its not an exaggeration.
in accommodating for disability, this cannot be dependent on a diagnosis. disability accommodations are accommodations for all, regardless of medical status.
