Hey. I am at peace with my disorder as well. After a lot of pain and a lot of praying I finally realized that what I have is an illness and doesn't make me an outcast (as some of my so called friends treated me as). It is an illness just like diabetes and other illnesses. It is manageable with medication and if I take it every day, I am alright. I still have bad days with symptoms of it but who doesn't as far as illnesses go. It is just a part of my life and treating it otherwise makes one miserable. That is how I feel. I have an illness and I am not any different than anyone else although others may disagree. But I refuse to see myself any different or handicapped or an alien. I am a survivor and choose to deal with it just like I would any other health issues or problems that occur in life.
That is my story. Hugs!
