I don’t know what it is but lately, I have either been having Insomnia or nightmares. Either I sleep for maybe two hours then I am awake again unable to sleep, or I have horrible nightmares/Dreaming of a different life.
I know that if I did not have this illness, my life would be different. But at the same time, this illness has wierdly changed my life for the better besides the pain part. I have met some of the most amazing people ever on facebook with the same Chronic conditions that I suffer from.
I don’t know what I would have done if I had not met those wonderful people. When I first got sick, everyone left and no one understood me or my illnesses. Then one day searching Facebook, I found great groups that are made for Interstitial Cystitis, Fibro, Endometriosis Warriors. That has been a big help.
I encourage you to look around facebook for support groups for whatever you are suffering with. Depression. Chronic Illness. The loss of a loved one, anything. If you need help with anything, just reach out. It may turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to you. Just like it is for me.
Feel free to email for anything, no matter how small. I am here to help, even if it is just to listen. And if by chance you are in the area and would like to meet and talk, that can be arranged. Don’t ever think that your problems are small. They are big to you. They matter to you. It is time for people to understand that and help you any way that they can.
You are important. You matter. You are loved. You are not worthless. Whatever you are going through no matter what others say, is NOT ‘in your head’
Reach out. You will be surprised at the amount of love and support people have to offer.
