I was asked to write about myself – my hidden disability. Injured at work, determined to be permanent injuries by their own doctors, they called me a liar because they could not see my injuries. They bullied me. They threatened me. They pushed me within an inch of my life but I was strong. I knew the truth. I fight them to this day. I know I am permanently disabled. I do not have to prove it to anyone. I don’t care if you don’t believe me. Their cruelty has shone a light on how strong I really am. If there are others like me, shamed and in pain, you are not alone. I believe you.
