Scrolling through Twitter I came across this!
"Visual Symptoms"?? I don't have symptoms, it's a PART of me!
I understand it when it's used in the context of "things to watch out for", I accept that, that's for diagnosis and figuring out what's "going on". But when it's used as a negative (in my opinion) context of something you already know you have, it's degrading. Awww pity you have symptoms. NO! I DO have severe Myopia, they're not symptoms, they are my everyday life.
Same goes for my Deafness, symptoms are: I can't hear shit. That's part of me too!
So do you agree? Disagree? I'm curious to know...
