I’m The Unapologetically ill.
I don’t mean to sound negative by the title.
I created this originally to document my life w/ chronic Illness but soon realized that my name needed to change and my approach because the world is not all filled with kindhearted people. There are too many a-holes out there who choose to be mean, condescending and just ridiculous at times. The truth is, I’m tired of it. I will not put up w/ it any longer nor apologize for it. Let’s educate people and come together as a group.
This is a safe space where I will be free, create awareness, and post about chronic illness. On here I will post about the truth that many of us go through on this journey of self healing while battling an invisible illness that we did not choose, while reminding those beautiful people that there is nothing to apologize for. Those who cannot understand, judge or lack empathy do not deserve our time. You know exactly what I mean when I say these words. Everyone from medical practitioners, coworkers/work, friends and even some family. *Gasp* yes, you heard me. Until you are in our shoes, you will never know or understand the heartache and pain we go through each day.
Let’s support each other and lift one another when times are dark. If you do have great friends, family & coworkers, who are there for you, hug them and let them know you are thankful and appreciate everything they do -because having an illness is not easy. It’s hard on you and on our loved ones too.
