Taking a stand

I didn’t choose this.

I didn’t do anything wrong that made this happen to me.

I didn’t want to faint in a shop when I was 16 and having a day out with my friends.

I didn’t want to miss that great night out when everyone had an amazing time when I was 18.

I didn’t want to be exhausted and unable to concentrate when I was in Uni.

I didn’t want to be sober on my hen night because half a glass of wine makes me sick for days.

I didn’t want to have a reaction to medication in an airport and miss my holiday.

I didn’t want my legs to turn to jelly when I tried to dance at the Christmas party.

I didn’t want to keep needing to pee during my grandad’s funeral.

I don’t want all of the other health issues that come in hand with it.

I don’t want my family to worry anymore.

I hear the comments you make, I’m not just a bit tired, an early night won’t fix it and no there’s no miracle pill the Dr can give me.

I want to enjoy my time out of the house without hearing people’s opinions on what I should be doing.

I want to be believed.

I want people to take my illness at face value.

I want to be treated with common courtesy.

I want to have a Dr who understands.

I want to get my life back, even if it’s not quite the same.

I want to keep working.

I want to be stronger, in body and mind.

I want to try.

I’m never going to give up.

It’s not my fault.

I didn’t choose this, but I choose me.

The 'I am never going to give up' is the best, never give up. And I know its not worth a lot, but I believe you! Wish I was a doctor.
