    I like that she points out that it isn’t a contest to see who is the most sick. It amazes me that people make it into that. I don’t want to win that kind of contest nor do I see why anyone else would. We should be able to share our struggles without having our disabilities turned into some sort of twisted competition.

      That’s a good point. There are people who genuinely just need to vent and receive support, and being met with something like “I’m worse off than you and managed to do X Y and Z”, just pours gas on the fire.
