AM I LUCKY?

Here is another article about how young people with chronic illnesses are treated.  There is no understanding or respect.  This woman’s illness is not completely invisible.  I thing that I would notice if a twenty-three year old woman came into the ER with an oxygen tank connected to a tube that traveled up into two little prongs in her nose attempting to breathe to live a little longer.  How insensitive are we as a society that we can not understand that she may need help more than you at the moment?  I applaud this young lady for being strong and coming out to answer that woman, even if she didn’t have the strength in the beginning.
