When people look at me they never see a person who is “sick”. I’m often told, “But you don’t look sick!”. Who suffering from an autoimmune disease hasn’t heard that statement a few hundred times. I try to prevent people from seeing how hard life with my body has been lately. It’s been so easy to hide how difficult the every day things are for me. Vacuuming, dusting, organizing…it’s so overwhelming b/c I know how tired that I get. My friends and family haven’t been to my home in 2 years. I just don’t have the energy to clean and organize. It’s time for a change. I’ve been hiding for too long. Now I’m looking for the energy to take control again. Baby steps. It’s time stop hiding and welcome people back into my life.
