Please don't judge me for the scars on my legs.
Don't look at me like the guy at the store did.
Or like the doctors.
They ask, what are these scars?
I should have asked what do they have to do with arthritis.
But I didn't, I was not bold enough, I told the truth.
They are self inflicted.
Then everything changed.
I was no longer sick, or even a patient,
I was now just a waste of his time.
A doctor should know better.
People should know better.
