About to lose my mind #Lupus #ChronicFatigue #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #RareDisease #Fibromyalgia #Anxiety #Depression

I am SO OVERWHELMED. 😭 If I see one more doctor that gives me bad(ish) news but no complete results and then sends me to ANOTHER specialist I am going to LOSE MY MIND.
I'm sure I'm not the only one...has anyone else experienced this?! I have a diagnosis but so many other things seem wrong, my body is giving out on me and it's so stressful, frustrating and disheartening! I'm behind on everything in life because I have been trying to figure out what's wrong for over a month now. I'm behind on my work, I haven't been on this app in months, the house is a disaster and I just want to feel better 😭😭send some positive vibes my way please 💕💕 And I'm sorry for all my fellow warriors who are dealing with this too!!!!

Today someone asked me “How is your dad doing?”. It may seem simplistic to most but it meant a great deal to me. No one outside of family members ever asks me about any personal aspect of my life with genuine concern or without selfish intentions or motives behind their “concern”. Thank you to that awesome person! I pray that blessings are gifted to you and your family are 100x greater than the blessing of temporary meaning you gifted me! 🙏🏾❤️

How are you dealing with people who don’t get your diseases?

I can’t avoid taking it personal when that person doesn’t seem to understand me in any way. Most of the time it seems like they’re not even trying to.
Is it my fault? Is it their fault, even if they’ve probably just never learned how to handle people with mental issues? Is there a fault? It’s just so difficult to stay in touch with them because my diseases take a lot of space in my life.

I hate when people try to do sympathy towards you. Such as when they say “you’ll get better!” Or “poor you”. I know my own body and disability issues. It’s permanent! No I won’t get better. Also when people ask “were you in a car accident” or “were you a smoker?” Just because I have a trach. Doesn’t automatically assume stuff. I was born with it due to health issues. I wasn’t supposed to be alive but here I am. Doctors kept saying I wouldn’t make it until 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 years of ages. I’m 24 now and I’m still here. So please next time you see me. Don’t say you’ll get better. Or poor you. You don’t know my story or struggles. I don’t want sympathy, I want to feel normal. But I can’t when you say things like this. There are right ways to approach me and there are wrong ways. Especially depending on if I’m having a good health day or a bad health day. #Sympathy #Disability #Trach
