In this issue: Life encompasses all ways of living; you don’t have to tie yourself down to a narrow frame of ‘strength’. Acceptance doesn’t mean giving up, but focussing on what you can rather than what you can’t do. How many spoonies would like for society to treat them – with less judgement and more understanding. Thoughts of suicide when you live with chronic pain isn’t uncommon, and thoughts of love keeps this spoonie going. The biggest struggle of people with invisible illnesses is the lack of belief in their pains. Feeling blessed and grateful for the kindness shown by loved ones while in pain. The surprising misconceptions about who can and cannot park at a disabled spot. Wise last words from grandma, “never let fear hold you back from becoming a mum”. Hating brain fog as a person with ME/CFS, because it’s that disruptive to life. Disability doesn’t only include the use of assistive technology or service dogs, but covers people with many other health problems, too.
