Why waiting in line is problematic

In the past, I have waited in long lines up to 6 hours for Star Wars tickets. I’ve waited in long line to get on my favorite ride at the amusement park.

Unfortunately, I can’t wait in line anymore. I need a chair with backs or a wall to lean on when I’m out anywhere because standing for too long hurts. I constantly leaning on things to support myself. I know it just looks lazy most of the time. I see the looks I get from strangers who judge me without knowing my story.

For the last 2 years, I’ve needed a wheelchair to attend Comiccon. Even by staying seated, I still cried from being in extreme physical pain and exhaustion after attending my favorite activity.

Even at home I am sitting constantly. I take breaks to rest while I’m doing things, and I can never be on my feet too long. I need to sit down while I cook or fold clothes because standing is too painful.
