Whether you are fighting a chronic illness or have known someone fighting chronic illness here are some things we wish everyone knew.
I am not a five-minute conversation that you have while pumping gas nor a passing, “hello, how are you?” in the grocery store. I am a two-hour car ride where you bear life’s burdens. I am an all-nighter on a weekend longing to hear your hopes, dreams, and fears.
This post is not in any way a means of seeking attention or complaining. If you really know me, you know that I hate both. This post is simply me extending an invitation for you to watch and perhaps help me process life.
My health is something that I am usually private about on social media but very open about in person. As much as I love everyone and would love to tell everyone in my life all of this in person, it is impossible...
There is freedom in knowing that my needs cannot be fulfilled on my own and that this does not rest on me. There is nothing I can do but rely on the daily bread.
