Happy Valentines Day Lovelies! Who needs flowers & chocolate, when you get to start a new med trial and self-inject biologics? 💗 This is far from the traditional celebration but it’s just as important to care and love yourself! We live in a world filled with countless ideals trying to dictate how we feel, who we feel it with, and how we enjoy things in life...but what matters the most is that in sickness and health, you stay true to and love yourself.
Often times, when having chronic conditions it is easy to feel as if you are not worthy of the same kind of love because with us comes new ways of living and coping with the unknown for whomever we interact with, yet the truth is we couldn’t be more deserving of the same kind of love. You are not a burden for bringing something different to the table, everyone with a condition or not brings things with them, that is part of life as a human being. Our illnesses are only a mere fraction of us and there is more to lust for as whatever the label may be it is not who you are.
You are a unique soul with countless things to enlighten another! A breath of fresh air as you face the unknown each day, a confidant who genuinely understands what it is like to face an uphill battle, an advocate bringing passion to improve the lives of others, a friend who will be there through the best and darkest of times, and a sparkle of light bringing joy to the real moments in life. Whether through your own eyes or someone else’s, YOU deserve love in all forms the same as anybody because YOU ARE a luminary!
