Sometimes the circumstances of my illness make my life feel very claustrophobic. It’s hard not to get stuck in thinking that I am only my body, only this pain, only a chronic illness patient. When the pain gets really bad and I’m taking lots of meds and can’t go anywhere, the cabin fever and boredom can make me feel crazy.
So I’m very grateful for everything that reminds me that I can always shift my vision and focus on something new, even while acknowledging the truth of how sick I am.
