I don’t need you to feel sorry for me. I would love it if you tried to understand what I am going through, even if you ultimately don’t. I am up and down; I have good days and bad. If I have to cancel on you, it is not personal. I am forced to pay attention to my body and my brain, and this has nothing to do with you, though our appointments may be the casualties of this. Mainly, I want to be loved for what and who I am.
