To My Chronic Illness — We’ve Got To Make This Work

Frustration Chronic Illness


By Chrissy Asplin in The Mighty.


To my chronic illness,

Once in a while I get a little fed up of dealing with you, and a little too tired. But, then again, I’m a little too stubborn to give up. I’ve got annoyed with you, annoyed with myself, and annoyed with others around me – even though I know deep down, they only have my best interests at heart. I’ve got aggressive with you, and in the past, got to the point where I’m just damn-well fed up with you, but you’re always there, as stubborn as I am.

Don’t get me wrong. You’ve taught me so much. Then again, I look at what you’ve taken from me and wonder whether it’s a fair balance. Some days, I just want to walk away from it all: The constant pain, the frustration and the struggle, but I know you’re stuck with me. And, as much as I hate to say it – I’m stuck with you. So, somehow we’ve got to make this work.
