People should be just a bit afraid of those who have suffered from chronic illness for extended periods of time.
We KNOW things about life that they don’t; and perhaps will never learn.
We KNOW the value of small steps forward and appreciate them; most complain about all the difficulties of their life they miss out on the good stuff.
We KNOW many ways of taking care of ourselves and our bodies; many will go through life with Dorito’s as a life companion without a second thought (I can’t judge this lifestyle, though – I’d LOVE Dorito’s every day!!)
And these, dear LYMIES, are only a FEW of the many, many, MANY ways that we scare – nay, intimidate others. I only got the ball rolling, so to speak, on this issue; LYMIES of the world, unite to consider the other ways in which we intimidate others because of our illness!
(For added emphasis to this post, I added the green guy up top).
