This really is the proverbial double edged sword! I think to prevent my own embarrassment, pain and letting others assume what I am and am not capable of, I just do not say anything. I have been more open recently to tell others because if they are going to be around me for any length of time, they will figure it out, or think I am a total lazy slug. My biggest fear is now and always has been, that once they know, they will see me as weaker, and unable to participate in life fully….that is the only thing I want to do right now…participate in life to the fullest extent my body will allow, not what I or others perceive my heart and body can or cannot do! Trapped!
