I am so tired, please see me through eyes of compassion.

You may not be able to see it, but I am suffering; Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a silent disease, that is gradually stealing my life from me.

Living In The Shadow of Myself

inside my walls

Life in general is very unpredictable and ever changing, not just for those of us that are sick. We need to face our lives in the most positive way we can, even with our medical obstacles. I’m not saying it will be easy, it will actually be very difficult. But we grow with our struggles. And there will come a point in each of our lives when we will look back, and realize that we are not defined by our illness, but by the person we have become to spite it. There is a good chance that many of us will never do what we thought we would do with our lives, that we might not become the person we thought we would become. But, this doesn’t have to be a tragedy. You may actually become someone you never dreamed you could be, and do things you never dreamed you could do. There are a lot of successful people that also suffer with chronic illness, and there is no reason why you can’t be one of them. Again, take your life one day at a time…it’s not a race.

One thing I will never do is give up hope. Not just that I get well someday, although I do hope and pray for that. What I refuse to give up hope about, is that I am here for a purpose. I will never give up hope that I will one day see the blessing, and see the purpose, in what I now can only see as suffering. I believe in my heart that we are all here for a very important reason, it’s just that many of us aren’t quite sure what that reason is, and that’s okay. We just can’t give up hope that one day we will see the light, and it will all make complete sense to us….on my dark and sad days, that is what I try to remember.
