What if I said "yes"? The question is "can I do anything for you?" or "do you need anything?". My "friends" know me and know that my response is always "no, I am fine". I would never go out there and ask for assistance. I wouldn't because in the past, when I have actually taken the steps to get someone to help me, the answer is always the same, "I have (insert whatever) and (insert whatever else) to do and am really busy, but I might be able to fit you into my schedule next Thursday at 9pm". I get that everyone is busy but for a person to put themselves out there and ask for assistance (when you have volunteered), please don't try to fit me in at a time when you know that I won't be functioning or better yet, when the help is no longer needed.
I am not pointing the finger at anyone in particular, that is not the point of this post but you find out who your true friends are when you are disabled. I am not always able to drive to you and I am not always fun anymore or even the happy go lucky girl that I used to be. I KNOW that.....better than ANYONE, I KNOW that. Some days it is hard to even live with myself and yes, it is depressing. It is hard to see me like this.....I get that....I am depressing.....check check. But when you say to me "What can I do to help" or "Do you need anything?", what if I responded with "Yes, thank you, there is"? What would you say?
