Chronic Illness: My New Normal

I don’t like my new normal

I now have to spend my days off resting

Just so I can continue the endless cycle

Of pain and fatigue 24 hours a day

I long for what my life used to be

When the pain wasn’t constant

When the fatigue was manageable

When I could achieve everything I wanted in a day

Despite my best efforts I am only worsening

I struggle through the day

With a smile on my face

Hiding my symptoms from the world

I’m nearly 25 but I feel 80

I barely have a social life

And when I do I suffer the consequences

I can be housebound for days

I try not to give in

Always carry on despite it

Attempt to ignore it all

But it’s impossible when my symptoms are constant

Trying to reduce what I do

Attempting to hold back my symptoms

It just doesnt seem to be working

I’m feeling worse and worse

I’m learning to be more thankful

For the things I can do

I now appreciate every achievement

No matter how small

But yes it is tough

Chronic illness is no walk in the park

It’s not going to go away

But I’m doing my best to stay positive

  1. Hello! I ust wanted to ask if youu ever have any issues with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do
    you have any methods to protect against hackers?
