To the exam supervisor

To the exam supervisor who said I was lucky to only do one paper a semester at uni…

I am not lucky.

I live with two chronic illnesses and their side effects- physical, mental, emotional and social.

I am 26 years old. I have not finished university. In fact, I have barely started. I cannot do more papers because I am not well enough to do them.

A simple comment, meant in (I am assuming) a positive way has resonated negatively with me. I am not lucky. I have never been lucky. Not in this life, at least. And probably not the next.

Sincerely,

mychronicpaindiaries.
