Being young and sick is sorta like being elderly, except we lack the reflection on all the great times and great things we did long ago. Instead, we watch our peers make the memories and strides they'll look back on fondly, bitterly observing and praying for our chance. Our time.
Many people suffering with a chronic illness don’t look sick. Yet, they struggle with even the simplest of tasks. Things that may not require any effort from most people, take all the energy they can muster. Sometimes people look at us like we are lazy because we don’t involve ourselves in many activities. When the truth is, our involvement might trigger a flare up which will then involve weeks of fatigue and illness.
