Who I am

For the past few years my illness has taken over my whole life. I couldn’t escape the pain, and the exhaustion. I couldn’t think about anything but the pain or how to get rid of it. It wasn’t always this way. I tried living my life as normal as possible for a couple years, but as my illness became worse it gradually took over everything. Somewhere along the way I got lost in my illness.

I guess I didn’t really know who I was before I got sick. I was twelve when I first got sick, so who really are you when your only twelve years old? Being sick changed me. I mean, how could it not? I don’t know who I would be if I wouldn’t have gotten sick.

My illness is not me, and its not who I will become. I am ready to figure out who I am aside from my illness.

Sick

This past week I have been feeling terrible. I have been dealing with a cold, and now a bad cough. My pain, and fatigue have been a lot worse along with just an overall feeling of weakness.

The pain is real

Living with an chronic invisible illness can be hard to explain to others how much your pain you live with. Sometimes its easier to downplay how much pain your in.

Trying to have a conversation with someone while in a lot of pain:

“Why are you in so much pain?”

When the pain is at its worst:

“You seem fine”

“How can you be in so much pain, but still look fine?”

Having an Invisible Illness

Everything about having a invisible illness is hard. rsasdas

Just because you cant see someone’s else illness doesn’t lessen the how sick they are, or how much pain they are in.

Living with an invisible illness

invisible-illness

When my symptoms are at there worst and I am feeling horrible, I sometimes forget that most of the time my illness isn’t noticeable. I feel horrible so isn’t it noticeable how sick I am? How much pain I am in? How terrible I am feeling?

9999999999999

Usually when I tell people how sick I have been they are usually shocked because ‘I don’t look sick.’
