Pretenders

Standard

ANYONE can pretend to be sick, which is ridiculous & offensive to those of us who legitimately ARE sick. The REAL strength is found in those of us who pretend to be well even when our bodies feel like they are falling apart.

I pretend to be well ALL the time…until my body just can’t take it anymore & I have no choice in the matter.

Feeling cruddy all the time isn’t fun & it isn’t something I would wish on anyone, ever.

Most of the time, I feel like I’m not truly living, because this isn’t living. It’s making it through the day. It’s not exciting, glamorous, or a role I play. This is my life.
