Why I share my story

Why I share my story… As an introvert, I’m not one to overwhelm people or create drama for the sake of being sociable. I tend to keep to myself until someone asks me how I’m doing. Depending on who asks, my response will either be “I’m fine.” or I will actually tell my story “in pieces” whenever possible simply because it’s too long a complicated to give the full story. I adapt my story, always being truthful, but only giving what the person who ask can take. So I share my story, but only the pieces the person sitting in front of you needs to hear at that moment. After all, it’s about them, not you.

I know that explaining my path through chronic illnesses, mental illnesses, parenting, careers and life in general can be a lot to process. Not everyone is ready, truly interested or able to take it all in.

I understand living with constant pain, migraines, digestion issues, crippling exhaustion, struggling to survive each day. I am living it every single day. I will live it for the rest of my life. Each day is a fight, but it’s a fight worth having.

I share my story in blog for awareness, for understanding, to show people that they aren’t alone in this and to share ideas and tips about making life easier.
