Not having the energy to do things I love is frustrating, especially when I know the root cause is my disease.
I have been sad about my disease, I have been confused by my disease, I have lost a lot because of my disease, but I will never be angry about it – because I love the person it has made me today.
Figuring out who you are is hard enough on its own, let alone when you throw chronic illness into the mix.
Everyone wants to have a life of which they are in control, but sometimes, chronic illness is in charge.
What I have been through because of my disease has changed my personality and outlook on life entirely. I no longer worry about the little things in life, I don’t deal with drama, I don’t focus on things I cannot change because I realize there are way more important things I need to devote my limited energy to.
