Better Drawn

Borrowed from Better Drawn, who says:
“From a hopeful, mostly-recovered-but-fluctuating ME/CFS sufferer who occasionally stumbles headlong back into ‘the pit’. ‘The pit’ is what some mild/moderate sufferers call ‘crashed’. Severe sufferers are always in ‘the pit’ and can’t climb out. ‘But you don’t look ill’ is the one of the main dismissive statements, along with ‘everyone gets tired’, that ME/CFS sufferers hear. This image reflects what some of my ME/CFS acquaintances have experienced at some time during their illness, especially when trying to claim welfare benefits.”
