A Short Story

Chronic illness, is no fun. Inflammation, is no fun. Getting sick every time I am unable to rest or when I overdo it, is no fun. When I am suffering from inflammation one little thing can push me over the edge. Yesterday I wasn't able to rest at all. My neck becomes painful on days like those, that combined with the inflammation always leads to a migraine, hence the reason I was up all night with a migraine. The give and take of chronic illness is the most painful especially when you watch other people take it all for granted. I know when I over do it I will pay it is all a part of the game. Days like yesterday make it all worth the pain and suffering. Today is no good, but yesterday was one of the best days ever! So I will keep going back to that memory file with every stabbing pain my head receives and remember the joy of watching my child achieve a huge milestone in his life. It makes the battle so much easier to remember the good when suffering the bad. The fight continues. It seems it never ends but you learn to take the good with the bad and vice versa. What other choice do I/we have? -The End

God Bless!
