this was a great blog…I will state here and now…if ANYONE thinks its fun to be sick 90% of the time, they are welcome to a week of my life…yes, there r days I will force my body to do “Normal” things, like shop, or go to dinner, but then I will suffer 50% worse for 2 days after that in bed, barely able to move. Having a chronic illlness & being in chronic pain is no game…no one wpuild live this way if it weren’t necessary. Yes, I know it sounds nice to spend the week in bed when you’re working a 50 hr. week & raising kids…I used to have the privelegde of doing that…but trust me when I say, I would go back to those days at the snap of a finger! I WANT to work and make my own money! I WANT to get out & meet people! But until you really live in the bed of a chronic…you have no idea what this horrible “bed sentence” in like day in and day out.
One of the strange and paradoxical things about illness is how it can bring out jealousy and envy in others. It is more than I can wrap my mind around that there are those who appear to be jealous and envious of our illnesses.
Perhaps some people enjoy getting a lot of attention, or are starved for attention, and they see everything with that mindset. I would be happy to be rid of my illnesses and am willing to give them to anyone who wants them. I don’t need or want the attention.
Then there are those days when we are doing a bit better, perhaps our illness has not completely stopped us in our tracks…
