Friday, 23 August 2019. Issue #175.

In this issue: Making it through to the next day counts for a lot. You may have all the motivation in the world, but be trapped in a body that isn’t able. The importance of ‘community’ and finding your tribe. The power of collective knowledge, with doctors and patients all working together. The reality of dating with chronic illness, when a cute guy finds out what’s beneath the cute girl they matched with. Having a good meal with a friend made whilst we were both hospitalised. The careful calculations and decisions people with chronic illnesses need to make, based on their energy levels every day. Able bodied people need to be educated on why disabled people need the space and facilities in toilets. The peace of mind that acceptance brings, and possibilities it opens up again. Laughing at ourselves and our pain can be difficult, but is a kind of humour many of us have developed to cope over the years.
