Top 5 Round Up
In my experience, most people do not know how to respond to someone that has a long term illness. They feel like nothing they do is going to help the situation. To compound this, the person who is sick is waiting on someone to help but doesn’t know how to ask. This is a vicious cycle that leads to the isolation most people with chronic illness experience and ends with broken relationships.
When you are sick with an illness like the flu, you recognize that you will get well within a short period of time. If you are diagnosed with a chronic illness, on the other hand, the reality is quite different. A chronic illness may never go away and the symptoms can make coping very difficult.
Your friends invite you for dinner and game night and you are so excited about it. You plan you day around it. You make sure to save your energy, so this time you won’t have to cancel like many times before. It is going to feel so good to get out of the house. It is going to feel amazing to be a part of something.
But then it all gets ripped away.
The spoken word is the most powerful weapon in the world. A childhood rhyme says that “words will never hurt me” but nothing could be further from the truth. Words, once said, cannot be unsaid therefore the results of those words can linger far longer than a bruise.
Over the past couple of years, my ability to walk long distances had decreased drastically. Very little activity will leave me exhausted and sweating profusely. I made a decision to get two different types of mobility devices so I can get out of the house for longer periods of time. There is just one problem, I am hesitant to use them.
One thing that I love about this list is that it is pretty eclectic. It shows that I write about Chronic Illness and Mental Health issues. I love that my niche is naturally expanding beyond Chronic Illness because it is stretching me as a writer. I also I have a lot of personal experience with mental health issues and I have plenty to say in that area. It is my feeling that these being My Top 5 Blog Posts in this Round Up shows me that I am on the right track as far as the goals for my blog are concerned.
