I had nearly a thousand comments and messages to my health update post yesterday. They were all amazing and lovely and I had a streak going with absolutely no douchey anons. These two kind of ruined it, but I still think two out of a thousand is pretty damn good. Thank you all very much for your kindness. It really meant a lot to me.
As for these two…let’s see.
I do wash myself, though it actually can be difficult. If I underestimate my energy, my legs can give out. I have collapsed several times in the shower. Perhaps you shouldn’t assume that “normal” activities are a cakewalk for people with chronic illness.
All in my head?
Well, my depression is mostly in my head area. The chemicals that are imbalanced like to live there.
My chronic fatigue syndrome is in every cell in my body. I leak energy from my cells and do not use it very efficiently. HOWEVER, my head is part of my body. So I guess that is in my head too.
My narcolepsy is a neurological disorder. My immune system attacks the “wakefulness” protein called hypocretin. The cells that produce these neurotransmitters are… in my head.
You may be on to something.
All of my illnesses are in my head.
Perhaps decapitation would be a viable treatment.
And just to correct an error in your statement…
Exactly how much more stuff do I have to do with my life to satisfy your requirements?
My parents are pretty much the best roommates ever. I’m proud to live with such amazing people and they like having me here.
It is also nice that my mom makes me cookies when I’m sad. I’m wondering, how many of your roommates have ever made cookies for you when you were sad?
