I just shared this on my facebook and i think it is a good link to sgare what its like with theses illnesses that we are fighting to not consume us
I want everyone who knows me to see this!
This is literally my life. Please understand that some people with illnesses are not just living their lives like everyone else, they are trying to survive.
I did take this Monday off this week, I couldn't sleep for more than 3 hours a night sense Thursday night.
Monday I finally fell asleep at 7 am
I had 25 unread texts and 11 missed calls, so, I was woken up 25-36 times, and yes I ignored all of them. Why didn't I turn off my phone then you ask? Well, the last time I did the people closest to me exploded instead of trying to understand what this is doing to me, how much I as struggling.
I went to bed at 6am on Tuesday morning and went to work at 9am. I went to sleep at 11pm and woke up at 12:30am and I haven't slept yet. I can't afford 2 days off a week. This is how I sleep, this is how I am 'living'.
So please stop yelling at me and getting pissed off when I don't answer the phone I'm fighting for a basic human need.
I just want to sleep.
