For years, I thought about getting a handicapped parking placard and didn't. I felt ashamed, as if I'd be taking something away from someone who needed it more. Then, after a particularly painful shopping trip, I gave in and did it. Now, I can see that I should have done it years ago. Also, I shouldn't ever be ashamed of it, and neither should you. If you have fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, or any other debilitating chronic illness, those parking spots are there FOR YOU. Yes, the signs have a picture of a wheelchair, but that doesn't mean only people in chairs can park there."
