I think sometimes it's just easier to think the worst of someone with a chronic illness. My Rheumatoid Arthritis kicks my ass and tires me out. Not a day goes by without pain, swelling and inflammation. I only wish more people understood.
Do not confuse my bad days as a sign of weakness. Those are actually the days I am fighting the hardest. This is for anyone in my family who is struggling through a chronic illness, dealing with a heartache or disappointment, or grieving.
