I have seen this challenge and thought I would try it myself. Mine might be a bit boring compared to some others, but I will do my best to answer the questions honestly so you can get to know me better.
Day 1: Introduce yourself. What illnesses do you have? How long have you had them?
Who am I?
Professionally, I am a math and physics professor. I have worked on a part-time basis between several colleges. I have been actively trying to find stable full-time work in a field that takes advantage of my skills. The stress of working part-time between several jobs is starting to get to me.
I also love astronomy and stargazing. I hope to get more in depth in this hobby in the future. Unfortunately, the equipment involved can get expensive.
I could spend hours on youtube watching videos of cats. I love them and their antics. Someday I hope to be financially stable enough to have a cat.
I am an introvert. I get exhausted after teaching 2 math classes. I don’t know how some people can do it for 8 hours straight in high school. I need my personal space. In the small amount of free time that I have, it is difficult for me to network with people when looking for jobs.
What illnesses do I have?
How long have I had it?
I was diagnosed when I was 17 and have been living with the condition for over 20 years. Being diagnosed with a chronic illness as a teenager is difficult. In my high school, you were not supposed to stand out and be different.
Over the years, I came to gradually accept the fact that it wasn’t going away. That process wasn’t an easy one and it didn’t happen overnight. Now I attempt to do the best I can to live a ‘normal’ life within my limitations.
