Now we have all said that one of the problems with ME is that it does not show much on the outside and people get confused about how ill we can really be.
I was reminded of it this morning. Since I have been wearing a hand brace because of the problems with my right thumb base joint I have found that asking for help in a shop much easier. whether it is packing a bag or simply waiting patiently whilst I struggle with the coins to pay, I have noticed a more tolerant attitude than when I asked for help when 'seemingly' perfectly capable of doing it myself.
How sad, and what a shame that in general evidence of an illness or disability generates more tolerance and underatanding. If only we could all be more tolerant and helpful of our fellow man without a physical indication that it is 'needed'.
