Love this post Michelle. So grateful for your advocacy, my friend, my fellow warrior💪
Please read. For Sherri.
Chronic Illness peeps…the circus folk most docs don’t know how to treat. And the government wants to weasel their way in between our doc/patient relationship…cuz they know best. Chronic pain is not glamorous or exciting or short-lived. It’s nasty, it’s raw, it’s terribly boring and it brings friends like depression and anxiety.
It is a life Half Lived…of moments. Just moments.
Pain Warrior: A Tribute to Sherri Little
I feast on Guilt and bathe in Despair.
It will always be my fault: I wasn’t strong enough, I was too lazy, I didn’t try hard enough, I’m a bad person and not deserving of love. I can never be enough. I am wrong. I am bad. I am inferior. I am less than. I should be better, do better, work harder, overcome. Why shouldn’t I be a superhero? I’m too fat, I’m too weak, I’m not disciplined enough, it’s all in my head – not real.
