I’ve been diagnosed with a disability for almost 10 years now, but at first I didn’t consider myself disabled because my limitations at the time were minute and relatively inconsequential.

I continued living my life presenting entirely as an abled person, not even bothering to tell those closest to me about my new diagnosis.
