I am happy that my story brings others encouragement,

And I don't think any of this is a mistake.

I just wish people would stop telling me "I can't imagine how you do it"

And instead realize, "You're just like me."

Sometimes they say, "You don't look sick at all. You'd never know."

For now I know it's true.
