hello again! i sent an ask a while ago about dealing with chronic illness and have just had an update on the mystery illness. i got some extensive blood work done by a new doctor and it turns out that my adrenals and immune system are barely functioning. if i don't respond to treatment i'll have to get immunoglobulin transfusions which are crazy $$ yikes. i have to wear a face mask while i'm out now and people stare. idk how to not be embarrassed about wearing one, especially with my friends😷😕

I also had to wear a facemask at one point because of a chemotherapic treatment, which resulted in stares and aweful jokes, but the best mindset to have is to remind yourself the mask is there for your own well being and other people do not know your situation. Even if you feel like you are being stared at: Those people have no direct effect on your life and will forget about it comes tomorrow. ( 8% of social cues you think you see are actually legit. The rest is assumed by your brain.) If you get questions : be truthful, most people will then promptly apologies. Be confident, be proud that you are a warrior fighting something like this and having the courage and tolerance of 100 peeps.

I wish you the very best concerning your chronic illness and I sincerely hope everything will be as manageable as possible.

You are strong and awesome, keep on rocking ~
