When you are living with an invisible illness: sometimes it’s not the illness part that sucks, it’s the invisible part.
It’s actually the living part, in my opinion.
Sometimes it hits me that, as big of a word as it is and as hard of a concept as it is to grasp sometimes, I am literally going to be sick FOREVER. There will never be one moment of my life where I am not sick.
I have been sick for 10 years. I’m 21 now. If I live to be 80 I will be sick for 59 more years.
That’s such a daunting thing to think about. The idea is exhausting.
