I too struggled with a chronic illness for years. I just wanted to let you know, it really does get better. You will get so much stronger even though it doesn't feel like it right now. I know you feel like the pain and suffering will never end, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Things will get better. Your writings are so lovely! Keep at it !! Love and prayers always !!! :)
Thank you. I have been struggling for nearly a decade. My illness has progressed a lot in that time. I do believe I am getting stronger, unfortunately, so are my symptoms. That’s the thing about struggles and strength: it is relative to the individual, and what you see externally isn’t always the best indication of what someone is going through or what they are fighting to put on that sort of appearance. Things get better, they get worse, but we never stop fighting. Some will fight the rest of their lives only to have the illness win in the end. It doesn’t make them less strong. It doesn’t make us stronger. It just makes our fights different. I am always here to talk to people who struggle in anyway. Feel free to reach out. I appreciate this message and knowing that you care enough to send something like this.
