Everyone has days when they just don’t want to deal with life. When one has a chronic illness there tend to be more of these days than the average bear. Well I’ve had a bunch of those days recently. I still make myself get up, go to class, pomping, sorority events, etc.. but still just feel like curling up in a ball and sleeping for a week. I finally did something about it today though, I decided to remve one of the larger stressors from my life, I dropped my composition 2 class and went from 15 hours to a manageable 12. While this may not seem like a drastic change I feel it will help slow my flares (which have been getting more frequent) and help reduce my stress in general. I’m working on the CISG and still trying to figure out what to do about the curriculum. My hands are giving me some problems and sense that winter is coming (I’m in denial) but I will survive.
On a side note I would like to say I am incredibly lucky: My sorority sisters are 100% behind me and my battle with RA, my G (my bigs, big) actually has RA herself (it’s always nice to have someone who understands). My friends here at college actually care about my well being and notice if I’m really down and out. My boyfriend doesn’t seem to mind that I’m sick so much and even takes care of me when I’m in really bad shape (we’ve been dating less than a month, now that’s above and beyond the call of duty).
