I like kind strangers

I have chronic migraines and chronic fatigue. It sucks. The tricky thing about invisible illness is that people automatically assume that you are capable of what they are. Other times you get lucky, in a roundabout sort of a way.

Today I got on a crowded bus to come home from work, feeling like crap and wishing, not for the first time, that I was capable of teleportation. A woman gave me her seat, because I had more stuff to carry than she did. I was more grateful than she could possibly have realised. It's one of my favourite things in the world, when people are kind and generous to others (it most certainly doesn't have to be to me) when they don't have to be.
