Thank you unsightlycygnet,
My life kind of reminds me of the story of Job from the bible. He got a happy ending and I'm hoping for the same.
Right on, believe it. I hope we all get our happy ending sooner rather than later.
Nice to see this thread has turned around into what we miss doing lol. I miss hiking. My knees suck and I get such pain the day after. Last I tried I did a fairly easy one-mile hike in the woods. Regretted it the next day. Couldn't walk. I also wish I had the ability to play sports but my athletic skills/stamina have always been abysmal.
I miss eating what I want and not dealing with repercussions. Not having to make odd requests of the waiter to walk into the kitchen with a literal laundry list of all my random food allergies. Not worrying about the next day when all the inflammation and weight gain hits me in spite of watching everything I eat. Yeah I definitely miss those days.
Oh yeah and I miss drinking. I just like cocktails is all.
The normality is definitely something I miss. Just not having to worry about
having a body that's more dysfunctional than functional. It's like roulette, what symptoms are gonna get me today eh? Oh I forgot my wallet, oh I lost my keys oh I can't cope with the bright lights.
Some day. Normality will return. Some day.
