When the doctor keeps saying, “Well I’ll see you again in 3 months,” instead of dealing with any of my issues hoping I’ll go away...

sending love out tonight to everyone who is progressively losing their abilities, whether that's movement, ability to walk, eyesight, or hearing.
it's hard to come to terms with the fact that you can't do things that you used to be able to do. I'll be honest, it feels like you're losing control of your life. it can feel very isolating and hopeless. its scary and overwhelming, and it's so hard to deal with.
you are not less than just because you can do less. im proud of you for still being here, and i wish you ease with adjusting to new ways of life. please take care of yourself, i love you.

with great pain comes the great inability to form a coherent sentence
[ID: a 4-page comic in illuminated manuscript style of a person standing outside. /1: They look to the distance and say: "What is that dolorous cloud: that dreadful fright I see now on the dark horizon?" /2: They turn, upset, and say: "Alas! It is the brain fog approaching!" A purple cloud enters the panel. /3: They hold up their hands against the approaching cloud, saying: "A curse upon that fog that steals my eloquence. I...hate...it" /4: The cloud surrounds them and they say: "cloud"..."bad" /ID]

The problem with being chronically ill is that when you become more sick, with more symptoms, people do not understand why its so upsetting.
"But weren't you in pain before?". Yes but this is a new pain that I haven't dealt with before.
"I thought you already had stomach problems?". Yes but this is a new symptom of it that scares me.
"Arent you used to this by now?". No, and I never will be.
Symptoms that have been had for months or years are hard enough to manage in the first place. Developing a new one is scary, and trying to find ways to cope while still juggling everything else is even more so. We are allowed to be upset at our symptoms progressing. It doesn't mean it wasn't bad before. It just means now its bad in another way we arent familiar with. And that sucks.

something you may need to hear today:
if you’re young and you have a chronic illness, you are most likely in a different stage of life than your friends. Not a better or worse one, just a different one, and that is okay.

Shout out to disabled people who cant use reusable/waste free products.
You aren’t a bad person for needing one time use products.
I know people made disabled folks feel bad when the whole plastic straw thing was going on but those people are wrong. You aren’t the cause of the damage being done to the environment, you aren’t a bad person, your individual needs are completely understandable.
It’s billionaires and huge companies causing issues, not you needing to manage your disability.

every single one of you deserves a society that has dismantled and destroyed the ableism within it, even if we aren't there yet, and to take care of yourselves

haha, morning routines amiright
[ID: a 4-page comic in illuminated manuscript style of a medieval peasant. /1: Text: "6 o'clock: rise with the sun." Panel depicts them sitting up and stretching in bed. /2: Text: "7 o'clock: break the night's fast." They stand at a table, stirring a bowl of pottage. /3: Text: "8 o'clock: Acknowledge the pain." Close-up of their face, now crudely drawn with dizzy eyes, behind a wall of text repeating thoughts such as "shit ow ouch ow" "is this it am I dying" "fetch the physician" and "alas and alack." /4: Text: "9 o'clock: Begin the day's work." They've returned to normal and sit with a quill and inkpot at a desk. /ID]

Nondisabled people really don’t understand how much energy it takes to just sit up. Even to sit up and watch TV. To sit up and “do nothing” takes energy.

any other spoonies have that thing where you're in pain but you're so used to it you don't do anything to make it better? Like you could take ibuprofen or drink water or use the heating pad or whatever but it's just going to come back later and you're tired now anyway so you just meh can't be bothered

just a quick reminder to all my chronically ill friends out there:
Nobody prepared you for what was going to happen in your life. You didn’t get a warning that chronic illness was going to become a major part of your life. You have been able to figure this out with zero preparation, and for that I am proud of you. <3

Most of the time when people tell you you're being negative about your illness, you're actually being realistic. It's just that it makes them uncomfortable to admit to themselves and to you what you're going through. So instead, they try to convince you that you're making things out to be worse than they are. That way they can feel better about YOUR situation and don't have to lift a finger in terms of support.
(This includes medical professionals.)
