Popular culture does not prepare us for the reality of #disability and illness. Here are 7 facts and personal observations from me (ie: not applicable to everyone): 🧵

1) Illness and disability are common human experiences. ie: Not rare, and not because someone is cursed or bad
2) #ChronicIllness is defined broadly as conditions that last 1 year or more and require ongoing medical attention or limit activities of daily living or both. Chronic illness is very common and effects an estimated 40% or more of the population. Again, not rare.
3) 'Most' disabilities and chronic illnesses can be improved in terms of symptoms and quality of life, but won’t be ‘cured’. ie: You will most likely have to live with it for a long time. This is true even though you're doing ‘the right things’. See: positive thinking, kale, etc
