I always wonder who will win this fight.
ME VS. INVISIBLE ILLNESSES.
I’m not going to lie – invisible illnesses seem to have the upper hand right now. But, this fight has been long and is hopefully nowhere near over!
I know I need to start a different treatment regimen. Sadly, as someone who suffers from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), every single time I place a pill in my mouth, I risk the unthinkable.
I’ve become desperate at this stage. I will try just about anything these days so that I can feel partially human again. I miss the days where I could afford to be picky regarding my medication.
My touch, vision, and hearing are now all so hypersensitive, I can hardly stand it. I have no sense of smell and virtually no sense of taste.
The fight isn’t over invisible illnesses. Not by a long shot. I have my eye on you, even if most of the world remains blind. I will FIGHT LIKE A GIRL.
Most of the population has at least one type of invisible illness. We do not have to suffer in silence!
