Issue #144: Your Small Efforts are Big Ones When You're in Pain & the Rarer the Disease is, the More Important it is to Talk About it | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 11 January 2019. Issue #144.

In this issue: No matter how small your effort may seem, it is still a 100% contribution when you’re in pain. The vicious cycle of guilt when you keep trying to get stuff done on bad days. Beware of emotional support dog! The rarer the disease is, the more important it is to talk about it. Resting is not a waste of time, and your needs are not valueless. The fixed image in abled people’s heads of what disability looks like, and the judgment that comes with it. You need to pace yourself, even if your goals may not even be seen as goals to healthy people. Establish a community through blogging. Embracing the fighter within you, as you muster the courage to face each new day. If only pain could be quantified and thus measured.
