This time around I found myself word-vomiting about how I'm better, but then again not really, because it's still an almost constant presence, but it's not inhibiting so I should just be complacent with it. But should I? Am I doomed to just be "complacent" with chronic pain, exhaustion, and occasional embarrassment? Somehow, lately, it's not enough to just be grateful that I'm no longer too sick to go to class or practice or hang out with my friends (though I am so grateful, of course).
It's been a less-than-stellar semester, so far, physically and emotionally and then physically again. It just got me thinking about people in general, and invisible illness in general. My sister wrote this great article about it, actually.
I'm not looking for pity. Just a space to write down my thoughts and express my gratitude to my Sophie. My heart swells when I think of the support system that I have in my friends, family, and boyfriend.
'til next time,
