Unfortunately, we live in a society that says if we can’t do what everyone else can do, we are somehow less. It is time to remind people that we are more than our bodies.
People who struggle with physical and mental issues would change their situations if they could. Illness doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care about age, race, etc. It can happen to anyone at anytime. When it does, everything changes.
If you are struggling with a physical or mental illness or both, you do not deserve to be rejected and isolated. Sometime it can feel like you do, but I promise you that no matter what you are going through, you deserve to be loved and respected.
Don’t lose hope in your journey for a diagnosis and acceptance and don’t lose yourself in your diagnosis. We are more than our bodies.
