Hard Reality

The problem with chronic illness is that no matter how badly you need or want a break, there is no way for you to get one. You can’t take a vacation and leave it behind like a stressful job or annoying family. You carry it with you and have to accommodate it every day for the rest of your life. And it’s so debilitating and exhausting knowing that you will never, ever get a break from it. And most days I wish I could give up.. but you can’t, cause it’s not something you just say I’m done with this let’s move on it’s with you forever or until a cure is found. And I think that’s the thing that makes it a hard reality for me. You can’t quit not with a chronic illness you can only rest and that’s as good as it gets
