Hearing your friends stories #chronicilness

Last year my friends graduated high school (unfortunately I failed my exams). A year went by and we decided to meet up again. Last year was really hard for me because multiple chronic illnesses stood in the way of me living.

Don’t get me wrong, I loved to meet them, but it made me also realize how they have a life and I don’t. They have the energy to do things, they don’t have to cancel plans last minute, they are able to study and get a career and I’m just laying in bed thinking if I even will be able to take a shower.
I just sat there, listening. I felt like I shouldn’t have been there in the room because I haven’t experienced anything besides seeing a spider on the ceiling in my room (just kidding). It did really upset me, I was happy for them, but I would have loved to be able to do things I should be able to do as a young adult.
Did you ever experience something similar, if so, how did you deal with it? #chronicilness #reunion
