Exceptions

There are always exceptions to every rule.

The human condition is no different.

Those with chronic illnesses make every attempt to not ask for exceptions. So why is it that those without chronic illness always ask for the exceptions?

If I asked those around me to not do things that irritated my Meniere’s I would be better off staying home in a dark room alone.

This is certainly coming off like I am complaining about something minor that I should let go of. And I will. But it begs the question why I try so hard to not let my Meniere’s affect others when others have no problem asking for exceptions?
