- Not complaining when in loads of pain
- Swallowing several pills at once
- Not sleeping at night
- Sleeping all day
- Waiting patiently in doctors’ offices
- Knowing more about my prescription medication than most pharmacists
- Knowing more about my illness(es) than most doctors
Not letting my brain go wonky while not leaving the house for days is a special skill I’ve developed over the last few years. I know it sounds great – so much tumblr! – but it can take a heavy emotional toll.
