    Q1: Please introduce yourself in a way you’re comfortable sharing
    Hello! Sagan here. I’m intersex, poly, and with an invisible disability that is showing itself more and more everyday. On my rougher days you’ll see me in my powerchair. ON my bad days, you won’t see me at all. (Unless you are in my house, I’m which case can I get you anything worth my crawling for?”
    Q2: Do you have a support system, like good friends?
    I’m blessed with an embarrassment of riches.

    Q3: What is the hardest part of having an illness or disability when it comes to friendship?

    Their understanding (and my trusting their understanding) of the fact that I will be flaky in practice, but not in values.

    Q4: What are some of the best things friends have done or said for you?
    Keep. Showing. Up.
    Q5: What are some things you’d like for friends to know about your illness or disability?

    I’m not in the driver’s seat often. I’m much more reliable really. Getting to spend time with you means more to me than you can fathom. What it costs me to spend time with you “pretending to feel human” is far greater than I allow it to appear.

    Q6: What is your favorite thing about the week so far?

    The visit from 2 friends, and the memories of why most of this week was spent recumbent.
