I used to be so absolutely offended if a healthy person told me they were tired.
I, on the other hand, get given a diagnosis for something incurable and say 'okay, that's annoying' and carry on with my day. My plate is absolutely massive.
Then my entire face went numb.
I've been learning ways to let go, to take my mind off things, to be able to move forward and deal with any problems in a healthier way.
I have never been ashamed to admit that I've needed counselling before. To be honest, I'd think it was pretty strange if someone was diagnosed with incurable chronic pain and didn't feel depressed, or scared, or something along those lines.
I haven't actually wanted to sit down and write this blog post, because I have been busy reading. Properly reading. Not squinting at a page, whilst begging my eyes to focus. I am finally off amitriptyline and I can see.
