I can’t wait until I can fully cope with the fact that I’m chronically ill. For some reason I’m constantly trying to hide it from people. When I’m asked if I’m okay I always say I’m fine. I don’t like asking for help because I don’t want to be a burden on anyone. I have an amazing husband and wonderful children who I know wouldn’t mind helping me.. but for some reason I always so “I got it” “I’m good” when really I want to burst out in tears.

      It’s ok we all fully understand that. I do it all the time and end up paying for it. It’s hard because you don’t want to like you said be a burden. I think because in reality we are a burden to ourselves.
