In this 30 Days story, Andy Rusch writes about his disability becoming more visible and progressive. He lives with Becker MD, and he writes about his symptoms are becoming more apparent.
Here’s an excerpt: “Once I accepted my transition from a hidden disease to one that could no longer be concealed easily, I opened up about what I could handle and what actions I couldn’t do simply because I would become too fatigued. Instead of running from the fear, I leaned into the vulnerability and found a welcoming atmosphere of people only wanting the best for me. My fear of holding others back, then, became invisible.”
