    Life With A Chronic Illness

    Because everyone has some weird life quirk. Ours just come with a closet full of pills.

    1. When dealing with the side effects of medication.

    2. When doctors go into an in depth description of what is going on during your appointment.

    3. When taking prednisone feels awfully similar to a Jessie Spano-esque meltdown.

    4. When asked what you like to do on weekends.

    5. When people around you are sick, and you're like:

    6. Sometimes you have a bad day.

    7. Which makes you really appreciate the good days.

    8. When you have a great doctor who listens.

    9. When people assume you must be dying.

    10. When people ask how you're feeling, but they really don't want to know.

    11. When having to explain to someone you're dating.

    12. When people ask if you've heard about the latest diet that will apparently cure you.

    13. When people say "but you don't look sick".

    14. Having to take medication at a social function, or needing to use some visible medical device in public.

    15. Hoping your new doctor looks like this.

    16. Waiting in the waiting room for over an hour past your appointment time.

    17. When people say "you're brave" and they could "never handle a life like your's".

    18. Your life may not be normal, but that's ok.
