Caption from me, Kimberly: I have polycystic ovary syndrome and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. On high pain days, I take the elevator. I have to give myself a little talk about how that’s okay. I also give myself little talks about how it’s okay to work on my PhD slowly and to be a slow mom. I’m constantly reassuring myself that my illness is real and it’s okay to make accommodations for myself because of it.
