I have to be strong and push myself because it’s not worth the debilitating pain, nausea and fatigue once I stop moving. When I’m asked if I’m okay, my immediate response is “I’m fine”. I don’t want to waste anyone’s time to describe it when I know others are sicker than I am. Since my diagnosis 16yrs ago, self care is one thing I can’t seem to grasp. I push towards the positive because I refuse to allow my illnesses from keeping me from living and loving my life.
We are all stronger than we think! 💕
