Recently I was travelling by train to get to my physical rehab appointment, and the train was full and all the priority seats were taken. My disability is invisible, and I didn’t want to ask someone for their seat because
a) what if they’re disabled too
b) what if they then quizzed my on why I needed the seat
Either would have been fine but my anxious lil brain decided it was easier to use extra spoons to just stand for the whole trip
@overcome_with_emotion Thoroughly understandable; I'd almost certainly have done the same. Hopefully the journey wasn't too bad?
@porsupah it was okay, just meant I was a lot more tired at the end of the day! Will have to practice asking “do you need this seat?” Or something
