I don't know who needs to hear this today but:
Being disabled is a full time job.

@maloki I needed this. I am aware of it and always take it into account. Except for me. I try, often. But I forget. Because I feel guilty, because of social pressure.

Reading this helped me remember that the many hours I spend every day trying to manage my mental health to not hurt me and others, be able to do things, and try to both survive, live, and still thrive, and deal with ableism in a very violent society, are hours of work.

So yeah, I needed that, not for my consideration of others, but for myself. Thanks a lot, sincerely.
