Feeling proud.

It’s been an interesting few months. I have finally accepted that regardless of my illnesses I am still me. If anything I have discovered a stronger me exists. I have become a fighter not just of Ankylosing Spondylitis and Fibromyalgia and all the pain these conditions bring but standing up to people who don’t understand what it’s like to live with chronic illnesses and constantly fighting for energy to get on with day to day life. People I thought were my friends have let me down and treated me like an invalid, like I’m their responsibility and have put the weight of all my problems on their shoulders. I am still me, I am not my illnesses, I fight alone like I always have and if you can’t handle it then get out of my life.
