When will it stop … #rheumatoid arthritis #sjogren syndrom # SV vasculitis

40 years + when will it stop
The pain, the flares, the helplessness,
When will it just stop
I cannot fight anymore
I’m becoming so weak

Job? I wish.

This is tough. I will be graduating in November 2021. I’ll have my associates in social work and everyone keeps asking what my plan is, what I want to do when I’m done. I come up with my dream plan and put on my fake smile but the truth is, I really don’t know.
I haven’t had a job since April 2020 because of the chronic pain lying in my chest and my gut, the fatigue from the depression makes the good days feel like one long night of sleep.
Can I even work in this field? Can I work at all? The boundaries my body puts up is like a knife to the heart. 10 years ago I was this naive young girl who would daydream of the perfect life she would aim for. The “perfect” life. I had such a strong opinion on doing good in school to better yourself for the future, never missing a class in high school, basically the literal definition of a teachers pet. I’m on the deans list now, and it feels so numbing. Like, what’s the point of being so strict on myself to succeed when my body is telling me I’ve already failed.
It’s 4:52 at this very moment, and right where I stand there is a roof over my head, food in my belly and clothes on my back. That should be enough, enough to say, “you know what, I’m so blessed and happy to be alive”
But right now, where I stand I feel more like a lost child than a grown adult about to graduate.
