A journey

I can relate to this so much!

“We become the illness without even realizing it and lose the people we once were – I’m on a journey to try and find that person again – to LIVE in between the flares.” – Unknown

Spoon theory

Life with a chronic illness

The spoon theory is an analogy used by some people with a disability and people with chronic illness to describe their everyday living experience when their disability or illness presents in a reduced amount of energy available for productive tasks.

Limitless

I love this song. ❤

When I first heard this song I has a really difficult time dealing with my illness. I know I will never have the strength to handle my illness on my own. God will always be bigger than the struggle I am facing.

You say: “It’s impossible ” God says: All things are possible

You say: ” I am too tired ” God says: I will give you rest.

You say: ” I can’t go on” God says: My grace is sufficient

You say: ” I can’t do it” God says: You can do all things

You say: ” I am not able” God says: I am able

You say:” It’s not worth it” God says: It will be worth it
