Showing off the big mug I bought myself as an early Christmas present from me to me 🥰

It’s 700ml / 25 oz and I find it useful on two accounts. First, it helps stretch each teabag a bit further (I am a huge tea fan) and second, it also means less trips to the kettle. Win-win!

I spoiled myself with one of my favourite teas from Fortnum & Mason—lemon curd green tea. This is me enjoying the last teabag and raising my mug to you my fellow spoonie warriors ❤️

Sending virtual Yuletide spoons,
Taryn x

#ChronicIllness Warriors have been fighting this forever

Those of us that live with chronic illnesses that keep us from being able to function like the average person have been fighting this fight for YEARS. Companies have refused to allow us to work remotely, even though it has been possible for decadeS now. We are in the year 2020. We had these capabilities in the year 2000 (may have been complicated, but we had them.) We've been able to do this since the 80's but yet many companies still don't allow people to work from home. We still have to struggle because we can't find enough remote work to make a livable income. With the exception of jobs that require physical labor or actually touching a person, just about everything else can be set up to where it can be done from home. Think about how many jobs that is.

Living with #ChronicIllness

I am one of those people that has a really hard time asking people for help. The more my conditions have progressed, the more I've had to "get over it," and ask for help. It still feels like chewing on glass every time I have to. For multiple reasons, but mostly because I can always tell when someone doesn't really WANT to help. That leads to me feeling badly about asking in the first place, making me want to just do whatever I can by myself, and go without whatever I can't do by myself. I know that's not really at all healthy, but this is one of those things I still struggle with daily, no matter how hard I try to feel differently about it. But that's okay. I am always a work in progress.
