There’s been a wave of health and exercise rhetoric at work. Many have started taking the stairs up and down, even if our office is several levels up because it’s healthier for you. They ask me why I don’t do the same knowing that I have multiple chronic illness and I struggle with pain. It can make one feel lazy or ashamed. Take the elevator if you need it.
Please don’t feel guilty about taking the elevator instead of the stairs. In this day and age when people are obsessed with counting steps, going the extra mile to keep in shape. It is totally okay for you to move at your own pace.
Do whatever you need to do to make your world more accessible.
