When I 'Play Favorites' With My Disabilities

Reading now: 734

It’s recently occurred to me that I play favorites with my chronic health conditions. What I mean is, I most often identify as someone with fibromyalgia and downplay my other conditions.

I decided I need to explore why I picked this “leader” among my collection that also includes osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic fatigue syndrome.

The most logical explanation is that my fibro is the one that most shapes my life and my restrictions. I suspect some deeper reasons, though.
