Who am I?

I found this article really interesting. It really explained how I have been feeling and made me look at things from a different perspective. However, it still brought me back to the fact that there are things I can’t do but, no guidance as to what I possibly can do. I feel like I have lost my identity, as someone’s career is an integral part of who they are. Without it, what do they identify as? My disability has, unfortunately, become a large part of my identity and I have struggled to figure out where I belong in society. There are no answers out there for people in my position. You either work or you don’t. Nobody seems to understand that although Fibromyalgia is life-changing, those whose life it changes still want to be a part of society and earn their way. We are taught to be career driven but, what is there for those who are unable to follow that path. There is not one given day that is the same but, the condition is a lonely one as people do not understand.
