Anyone who has been through illness (physical or/and mental) know that people tend to drift away. I’ve been living with multiple chronic illness and mental illness for a few years now. There has been many ups and downs. I am still walking along the journey, trying to figure it out, testing different treatment to see what works and was doesn’t. This post is to honour those who stay.
Life changes when you are dealing with illness. Friendship changes. You can’t force people to stay in your life. Staying is a choice. So if you are part of those who stayed. I am so very thankful and happy that you are still around.
There is no point in chasing people. Running after people will now prove to them that you matter.
Thank you to all who have stayed with me through thick and thin.
