To Those Who Say Chronically Ill People Are ‘So Lucky’ Not to Work Full-Time

For those who haven’t had the opportunity to read The Mighty blog site, I highly recommend it. They exist to shed light, break stigma, create awareness and build understanding about chronic physical and mental illnesses. They cover Endo, but also PCOS, IBS, IC, Anxiety and Depression which also come hand in hand with endo. Sometimes when our loved ones read something written by someone else (but it’s as if the person was mind-reading when they wrote it) it can have more impact on their understanding.

I’ve been able to write for them and it has also helped me process the struggle. I really recommend having a look, it’s extremely validating and encouraging!

Stop the Guilt

So, I woke up at 12:15pm. I don’t start work until 4pm. I am in pain.

Even though I could have gone back to sleep, my guilt got me out of bed. Now I’m up and in more pain. Too much pain to do any real work and to write any more in this blog. But will someone please take the guilt (of doing nothing) away?
