Happy Valentines’ Day to all!

In this issue: The happiness of breathing in fresh, cold air after being cooped up at home for days from pain. Healthcare costs add up quickly, and usually patients only manage to achieve a quality of life that’s manageable rather than good. My wine wands from Drink Pure Wine arrived, and I couldn’t be more excited! Live updates and credible information about the coronavirus, COVID-19, compiled in one place. The problem with letting bad emotions linger is that they also affect your physical health, making you more ill. Just because someone else’s pain is invisible doesn’t mean it’s exaggerated, and it has a mental impact, too. The problem with chronic illness is that it’s a daily loss and grieving, and not a one-time thing. Being mired in a situation where your family denies your pain, and cutting off those toxic ties. The confusion we face when we forget if we have already taken our medications or not, and how to organise them. The exhaustion from needing to re-explain your disability and need for a plastic straw, each time you go out to eat or drink.
