I remember once I was registering for my music course at college and I had taken codeine for the pain. I had to walk two kilometres to the campus. My sister was with me. I was tired and high as hell and I had to have a conversation with the secretary there to organise my signing on. The secretary scowled at me and was SO rude, she treated me like I was some fucked up drug addict. Even drug addicts deserve respect, God damn it! I think she took one look at what I was studying and assumed I was a no good dopehead. It’s like - no, I am suffering from an actual pain condition here! Worst thing was I had to give up the course due to the pain I was in. I’ve been on disability for eight years now because endo made it impossible for me to hold down a job or study.
