So, a good friend of mine recently came to stay with me for a few days.
She has a chronic illness like me and so when she said she was coming I thought of all the things I could do to help her.
I did as much research as I could on her condition and was prepared to give her my speech when she got here.
She was diagnosed when she was 16 and since I was diagnosed at 7 months old so I wanted to talk to her about how its important to accept your limitations rather than rebel against them.
I wanted to tell her to take lots of vitamins, get lots of sleep and eat properly.
But in the meantime, I think she was the one who had a lot to teach me.
She lives her life one day at a time and doesn't let anything stop her. She doesn't focus on her disease and lives like to t the fullest when she isn't sick.
Lately, I've noticed that I've been a bit extreme in that I don't do a lot, I never stay up late and I'm always worrying about travelling and working and never doing the things that I want to do!
I think its important to take care of yourself but in the end I little fun never killed anyone!
