so, i deal with chronic pain.
it’s been going on and increasing for the last twenty years plus.
now that i am older, it really impacts my mobility.
i find myself having to sort of explain it to people.
it really is a disability and it’s not something that’s readily obvious to people other than the way that i squirm around when i have to stand for a while and i can’t really walk a long way.
even if i wanted to, i just really can’t.
my hat looks dumb because i had my hair up in a high sock bun and didn’t wanna mess with it but i needed the hat to protect my face from the sun. i already have way too much sun damage being fair-skinned and growing up in the central valley of cali, i.e., desert.
