Invisible Illness week sept 8-14

Tue Sep 9, 2014, 2:40 AM
So it is Invisible Illness Awareness week. Being a sufferer myself I thought I'd write a journal on it.

Before I was ill I didn't really understand chronic illnesses like I have. It wasn't that I didn't want to know or did t try. I truly was ignorant and, though I tried to understand, it was hard to picture. And you can't truly understand until you go through it yourself.

Being a sporty type I loved competing in team sports and running. But in my late teens I became unable to even run for a minute. I started to shake, grow exhausted and no matter how much I slept it didn't help. 

What frustrated me most was people saying "exercise!", " eat better" and "it's all in your head". Even I told myself these things and pushed and pushed myself. Even my doctor tried to get me signed off work but I refused, despite the shaking fits, collapsing at work, dizzy spells, falling over and nearly blacking out. Finding it hard to chew my food became a problem! Then it got to the point where I wasn't just putting myself in danger and that was it. No more working. I miss working. I love keeping busy. But now I struggle to do most anything. I can't hoover, I can't cook, I can't even go for a walk. Worst is drawing. I can only draw for a few minutes before my arm screams in agony and keeps me awake all night no matter what painkillers I take. And the worst pain episodes I get I can say is equal to or worse than giving birth.

So what I'm trying to say is, its not in the head. Exercise actually impedes on recovery and I eat plenty fine. It will be a long recovery and I will never be cured nor get back to how I once was. 

For those of you who suffer as well, keep fighting. Keep persevering, living each day, and find something that you've accomplished daily. Like you managed to draw for more than five minutes. Or you felt more awake today. You managed to watch a whole film. The little things that you are able to do are big things and be proud. 

And those who don't suffer but try to listen and understand us, thank you. Xxx

Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
Me: I really wonder why my favourite guys from animes/games are the results I get in quizzes. Do I love myself or something? Then again all the guys I favour in games etc are strong and reclusive and I'm like that mentally I suppose. *pensive look*

Current Residence: United Kingdom
Favourite genre of music: heavy metal
Favourite photographer: Don't have a favourite
Favourite artist: Quite a lot. I like Michael Perez too.
Favourite style of art: anime obviously! japanese/chinese subjects. real life. fantasy!!
Operating System: like anyone wants to know
Wallpaper of choice: final fantasy or any other amazing anime or art

Am I really like Squall? Hmm. Maybe. People think I'm timid/shy/moody when I'm quiet. But what's wrong with being quiet? I like peaceful silence sometimes. And I sure as heck hate being a leader in anything. I like leaving responsibility like that to someone else because I'd probably screw up.

I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, "why?"
The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world.
Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me.
I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard.

Hello ^^ I'm one of the co-founders for :iconfinalfantasydeviants: I was the one who accepted your invitation.

I'd just like you to know that now that you've joined us, you need to create a character for our group, mainly by following the guide of this template.

finalfantasydeviants.deviantar…

Once the character is done, we'll check it and if it's good to go, you can start doing missions and events ^^

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
