The me behind ME

Things aren't how they used to be,
But there's no need to pity me.
I'm still the same me underneath
Despite my disability.
Though you may not like what you see
And act like you're afraid of me,
This is my new normality
So please don't make sad eyes at me.

I don't view myself tragically.
I can't change myself magically.
If you're not part of my illness 
Then don't expect me
To make you a part 
Of my recovery.
If I have to be well to be friends
Then no deal, here's where it ends.
