Issue #229: The Feeling of Exclusion in Society with the Lack of Accessibility & The Importance of Advocating for Yourself at the Doctor's | A Chronic Voice

Friday, 04 September 2020. Issue #229.

In this issue: Thinking outside of the box to find meaning, and realising that you can do and be whatever you want to be. The importance of verifying your tweet sources, and remaining respectful towards others’ opinions. I can only imagine how nice it must be to watch the seasons morph from summer to autumn during this month’s writing prompts. Experiences of being on Humira for IBD whilst pregnant twice. All the little pills and potions you bring along for minor and major ailments when you’re chronically ill whilst travelling. Magnesium can be helpful in reducing nerve and muscle pains. The feeling of exclusion in society when every day you bump into something inaccessible. To live with chronic illness is also to live with chronic grief, as seasons in health ebb and flow. Advocating for yourself – your doctor’s job is to help and try to find solutions to your health problems. ‘No’ is a complete sentence and you do not need to justify your illness to anyone.
