I have a downer on myself when I’m having a bad day. I was angry growing up, desperate to know what was wrong with me; it was clear to me that I was not coping with my mental, emotional and physical problems.
I feel angry that my problems were ignored by those whose job it was to protect me, instead of leaving me continually exposed. Every now and again I find myself being brought back to this place.
If I didn’t struggle in other areas of my life, my anger issues around my disability wouldn’t continue to play such a big part in my emotions.
