Trying to figure out whether your chronic illness has gotten worse or if you’re just too worn down from it to be able to force function anymore

"I have been told
sometimes the most healing thing we can do
is remind ourselves
over and over and over
other people feel this too"

"There’s a couple of stages of having a chronic disease; there’s the being sick - like suddenly you’re sick and you don’t know what’s wrong. And that can be super terrifying depending on how severe your symptoms are. Then there’s the being diagnosed part which comes along with this word chronic, which inside of it hiding there is the word incurable - which no one says out loud but which is the worst word. It means, not only has your life changed, your life has changed irrevocably."
