Everyone who has a chronic illness has several things in common. We are all sick. We all hurt. We all have good days and bad days. But no matter what, the happiest thing we have in common is that we all have little victories that we love to celebrate, and here is where you can share them! I'm 19 years old and suffer from numerous chronic illness. Nothing will be deleted and everything will be published. Feel free to share please!

Meet Wrangler!
He is an 11 week old yellow lab who is my Service Dog in Training! He will be trained as a mobility aid to help support myself when I can’t! He already has such a big heart to help me, and I can’t wait to have him living with me all the time!

Right this minute, there is someone going through chemotherapy shopping at your grocery store, buying popsicles and ice cream to help their sore mouth, and worrying what the cashier is going to think.

There is someone on hemodialysis buying white bread instead of whole wheat, trying to keep their phosphorus levels reasonable between appointments and hoping for the best.

There is a person attending intensive outpatient treatment for their eating disorder who has been challenged by their therapist to buy a Frappuccino.

There are dietitians picking up a dozen different candy bars to eat with their clients, who feel ashamed and guilty about enjoying them.

There is someone who just doesn’t have it in them to cook right now, and this frozen pizza and canned soup will keep them going.

There are people recovering from chronic dieting and semi-starvation who are buying chocolate and chips at their deprived body’s insistence.

All around us are people listening to what their bodies need and attempting to make the best possible choice within a context of overwhelming food pressure. All of their choices are valid, and every single one of these foods is “real.”

If I reach for you, instead of the wall, when I’m about to collapse; I believe you will steady me.

If I ask you to open a bottle for me when my hands are weak, I believe you won’t mock me for not being able to.

If I take my medicine in front of you, I have faith that you won’t pity me for all…
