    Anyone else feel like this?

    It seems like I’ve always been sick.

    As a baby diagnosed with asthma. Then came the allergies and the years of shots.

    Menstrual issues; migraines; IBS; hypothyroidism; RA; fibromyalgia. Over the decades, it seems as the “newest” seems to be under control, another appears or I get a flare.

    Currently it’s a combination of the diagnosed acting up and a battery of tests to discover what’s causing the newest symptoms.

    Does anyone ever feel like it’s enough? Or actually, more than enough?

    How are you?

    When I’m asked that question, and I’m depressed, as I currently am, I say: “I’m taking air in, and letting it out.” So far the only response I’ve had is laughter. Probably because I use humor yo cope. But when I say that, that’s about the extent of what I can manage to do. And if I’m having an asthma flare, or an episode of congestive heart failure… it’s even more of a struggle…#takingairin
