Issue 216: Even Basic Tasks Become a Challenge with Chronic Illness & Acceptance Isn’t Defeat but an Allowance of Grace

Friday, 05 June 2020. Issue #216.

In this issue: Even basic tasks are challenging with chronic illness, and you live each day in survival mode. Grief, like chronic pain, comes and goes, but sit with it and you will be okay. Our bodies are resilient powerhouses without you even realising it, especially when you’re healthy. Acceptance isn’t defeat, but an allowance of grace whilst still trying your best. Can you relate to these best and worst parts about being stuck at home with a chronic illness or disability, especially during this lockdown? The current COVID-19 pandemic exposes the ableism that is present in society, as it shows that workplaces can indeed provide accommodations but don’t want to on a normal day. Experience is the best form of credibility, and it’s a strange opportunity to be able to help others with chronic illness because of this. Learning that there’s nothing wrong with living life one day at a time, without having your whole future mapped out. Why consistency of care and caregivers are so important. The loneliness of struggling to communicate after a traumatic brain injury, and how a speech and language therapy can help.
