You will not always understand. There will be times when I am going through something that you won’t even be able to fully comprehend, because my chronic illness is something you will (hopefully) never have to experience firsthand. You will feel frustrated when I retreat into myself.
It’s been a year since I found out I didn’t have cancer anymore. And in that year, there have been beautiful days and anxious days and everything in between. Right now, I’m just feeling lucky that I get to live them at all.
