I’m talking to you, yes you. The person lying there in the dark. The person struggling with unbearable fatigue and pain. The person who feels like giving up.
I’m talking to you (actually I’m whispering because I know noise hurts your head). And I’m telling you: Don’t give up. Not just yet.
I know what it’s like to be you. To be so ill, you’re hardly aware of anything beyond the pain in your body. And to feel like there’s no point continuing to fight. Because, it’ll always be like this, right? Things will never get any better?
I know this because I’ve been there. And now I’m here. I’m not saying I’m better (far from it). And I’m not saying it’s been an easy journey this far. There’s no point in lying to you – you know this illness, you’d see straight through my falsehoods.
