INVISIBLE ILLNESS 👻. 'JUST BECAUSE YOU DON'T SEE IT DOESN'T MEAN WE DON'T FEEL IT'. This can literally happen overnight.
A long term illness that usually cant be fixed, can't be cured.The only options we have are to try and ease our pain and symptoms.
Each and Every day is a fight.
This is our job, we're not lucky to be sat at home. Some days we admit defeat and abandon all hope, some days we battle on and faith prevails. Other days we just want to wave our hands and surrender but we can't be rid of this and people want us to stay strong & be brave. We don't get a break!
It is so hard being in pain all the time, suffering all the symptoms your body throws at you; it's torture.
We're usually too tired to care or passed out to figure out how our own body's go through so much and still survive.
How? "dying to live OR living to die"
Who knows we just wake up and do it all again.
It doesn't just affect us; it affects the people around us too.The people who love & care for us personally and (sometimes) professionally.
BUT don't ever be afraid of us whatever you do or don't see we are are human too..
♡Learn about us.
♡Try understand us.
♡Ask us your questions.
♡Don't pity us.
♡Smile (promise we'll smile back).
♡Give us a hug.
Just imagine it was you,
What would you want?
What would you do?
How would you feel?
Because illness does Not discriminate...
Choose your words carefully, your judgements, facial expressions and opinions do bother us; We have feelings too. THIS IS OUR LIFE!
We honestly try our best to handle and cope with all of this, ESPECIALLY those who just LOVE to give their opinions BUT...
