Some days I am struggling with seeing so many people moaning about things that I have come to champion and cherish.
But seeing others disregard certain aspects of a life lived completely indoors is reminding me of our immense resilience as people with chronic illness; people who have been confined to our homes for far longer than those who are moaning the loudest.
Our ability to mould and reshape a life where happiness, peace, contentment and gratitude are still well within our reach is admirable.
I feel like, while the masses are struggling to survive, we have long since learnt to thrive (or at least try to) within the restrictions placed on us by our own bodies.
I am proud of us, always.
There is no doubt that the circumstances of the last year have been beyond hard. I do not wish to invalidate anyone else’s suffering. I just think we, as people with chronic illness, do incredibly well each and every day to make the best of he hand we’ve been dealt.
