How do you keep going when life gets a little too much ?
I’m a 19 college student and I have anlylosing spondylitis . Long story short , my bones get inflamed and hurt ( it is a chronic illness) .
I am always in a flare since my treatment doesn’t work , but lately , things have been getting really worse . My pain has become stronger than I can handle . I barely could keep my stuff anymore and have been on the verge of crying in class because I was hurting so bad . It’s been about 4-5 days that I have really poorly slept, my nights have been marked by insomnia .
I feel like I’m drowning in all the responsibilities that I have , which I don’t even have that much , all the medical things I have to do , and I should do , it’s too much to handle and I’m in a household that doesn’t understand my pain and my struggles
I know it’s probably the exhaustion of doing too much , with not enough energy but it feels like a lot, and I feel like I can’t handle it .
My midterms are also coming , and idk how I will cope with that
