Chronically Ill People Do Not Blog

I am beating myself up for ever thinking that I could be consistent with blogging!

It is hard to express myself when I am so tired all of the time. It is hard to advocate for myself and others. I want so much to help people. I have friends, but I am not a very good one. I don’t have the energy. I have the love. The ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has been very persistent the past months. Not just dragging myself around, but sleeping no less than 12 hours per day. Laying around most the rest of the day. Fibromyalgia is flaring up. The migraines are under control, though.

I cry. I do. I want to be more for other people. I want to do more. My husband is the sweetest, most patient human being. He says that I am not the best human-doing anymore, but I am a wonderful human-being.

  1. Your husband’s a very wise man…. It’s so hard sometimes, especially when we live with a chronic illness, to separate what we can or can’t do from who we are. I know it’s easier said than done, but please try not to beat yourself up because you can’t do all the things you used to. You didn’t ask for this illness. As far as the consistency in blogging goes, be kind to yourself. You may find that over time you’re able to become more consistent, but for now, there’s no need to put pressure on yourself; just write when you feel up to writing and don’t worry about it the rest of the time. Blessings to you!

  2. WendyLynn……….my heart broke as i read your post as i just wanted to reach out and give you a gentle hug. i have been there, spending almost 2 years of my life in bed and it totally sucked. being ill is, as Terri so beautifully wrote, not a choice. you did not bring this on yourself nor are you being punished (as I heard several times from others). I am so thankful your husband expressed his love with such true words……..you are enough just the way you are and we are here whether or not you have the strength to write. sending healing, healthful, peaceful thoughts your way.
