At some point in the not too distant future, I plan to divulge more information about my particular medical issues and what I’ve been through to get to where I am.
In the meantime, I will say that life is difficult for all of us and we should remember to have compassion for others. We can’t always see what the problem is, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not there. Invisible illness is a real thing and it’s hard to deal with sometimes, especially when the people around you are telling you “it’s all in your head” or that “you’re making stuff up just to get attention.”
Believe me, I’ve been there. I know how depressing and draining it can be. Some days all you can do is simply exist.
And that’s enough.
Because when those days have passed, you’ll still be there and I’ll still be here – rooting for all of us.
