Chronic Illness


Happiness turned to me and said, “It is time. It is time to forgive yourself for all of the things you did not become. It is time to exonerate yourself for all the people you couldn’t save, for all the fragile hearts you fumbled with in the dark of your confusion. It is time, child, to accept that you don’t have to be who you were a year ago, that you don’t have to want the same things. Above all else, it is time to believe, with reckless abandon, that you are worthy of me, for I have been waiting for years”.  – Bianca Sparacino

    1. So you have pancreas divisum? Ours is a club no one wants to belong to, right? Thank you for stopping by my blog, and I’ll be holding you in my heart that your CP stays manageable.


      1. Yep. I’ve been educating local hospitals, doctors and nurses about all the bizarre and rare issues that go along with this defect so maybe that’s my purpose. The regulars who treat me just ask me what I need-everyone else tries to cure me! Or denies me pain meds because they know better than all the others I’ve seen. How long would it take to pull up my history on their computer and read what’s there?! I show the naysayers my pain pill bottles that are still full from 2007 on, but some still don’t believe I’m not there just for a fix. So frustrating. It helps to know I’m not alone in this so thank you. I’ll be thinking of you, also!
