When I was little, I wasn't very good at hide and seek. I could never be quiet long enough to NOT be found, and I was never patient enough to look for someone who could! (I know, go figure!)
Well, having Myasthenia Gravis has changed everything about the way I play hide and seek. Now it's not about being quiet, it's about being just loud enough to blend in.
It's not about finding a really good hiding spot where no one can find you, it's about being in the open, surrounded by people, hiding in plain sight.
I do my hair
I put on make-up
I try to find clothes that don't say, "Hi, I'm chronically ill and take 40 pills a day, can't ya tell??"
I talk and laugh and pretend.
And I hide.
In the wide open.
In plain sight.
