A little late, but I wanted to give a shout out to all the chronically ill and medically disabled black people here! You’re valid and you’re important and I care about your struggle and your achievements, whether you conceal the evidence of your illness or show it off to everybody.
I’m learning more everyday on how to care for myself and love myself even when I fail and I hope you are too. It’s still very difficult to be proud… But I want us to remember: if you are still here, then you are still winning.
