you look great is not a challenge it is a compliment

A friend came over she very excitedly said this. You're walking you're getting around. I didn't even have the spoons to tell her about the 2 hours it took to get dressed rest put on make up rest. That I was counting down the minutes because my rib was dislocated. I felt this fear that she would see me as sick as worthless as worth less. Or that she would think my disability is not as serious as I had claimed.
