“Why don’t you find another way to get out of bed?”


Well that is a novel idea, is it not? Why don’t I just find another way to do something.

Thank you for the great insight into my life. I did not even think about trying something different.

I am perfectly content wallowing in my self-pity of losing my abilities.

I am perfectly content to just let my auto-immune defeat me.


Am I happy just laying in bed until my body allows me to get up? Have I not considered other solutions to this dilemma?


Furthermore, I do not like the reminder that my body fails me.

I work very hard to keep my illness under wraps. I try very hard to remain able-bodied.

Sometimes, I cannot help it. Sometimes, I cannot get out of bed.

This is what I have to work with.


Part One shows why this is not ok to say.

There will be no third part. I find this comment extremely rude and cannot find any silver lining.


Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA.
