I urge you, as hard as it may be, not to lose sight of your needs and wants while suffering from chronic illness.
We may not be able to fulfill them presently for so many reasons. But don’t forget about the experiences and milestones you yearn to achieve.
Even with chronic illness, you are still you. You are a whole person and are allowed to have passions and aspirations. Even at times, or all the times, these are beyond what we are possible of accomplishing.
Still have them.
