Thread that I hope you'll read: My GRE started at 1pm today. #GRExit
I really wasn't sure in the weeks coming up to this what I was going to do. I knew any time I spent trying to review for this for-profit standardized exam was time taken away from academic work that was actually valuable to my preparation for graduate work in #plantsci #GRExit
Both approaches were fraught - giving it my best and making my already shaky health worse from added stress, or taking it symbolically and turning in my 0 scores. Each had big risks for me. #DisabledAndSTEM #GRExit

I became disabled in my late 20s, but stayed in the workforce until my early 40s, sticking it out as long as I could.
When I’d run out of sick time, sometimes I’d just have to leave a job and recover, until I could work again. This was rough on my pocketbook & my resume.
When I finally applied for disability, it was because I was sick of this farce of being asked to perform exactly as if I did not have a disability WHEN I DID.
