If Someone You Love….

If someone you love tells you she doesn’t  feel good….believe her.

If someone you love tell you she is feeling weak….believe her.

If someone you love tells you she can’t go out to lunch with you because she is too tired….believe her.

If someone you love tells you that her legs and arms feel like lead, and she needs to stay in bed….believe her.

If someone you love tells you that her pain is really bad today…believe her.

If someone you love tells you that she can’t move because she is too dizzy….believe her.

If someone you love tells you that she has a headache of epic proportions…believe her.

If someone you love tells you that she has no energy….believe her.

If someone you love tells you that she hurts all over….believe her.

If you love someone who has made her life a little easier by:

Hiring  a cleaning Lady

Having groceries delivered

Hiring a dogwalker

Shopping online for clothes

Don’t judge her.

If someone you love has changed:

And has a messy house now

And won’t make plans with anyone

And doesn’t entertain anymore

Used to be fun but isn’t anymore

Love her anyway.

Don’t say:

But you don’t look sick!

What’s wrong with your doctor?

Do you take vitamins?

Do you eat right…exercise…take your medicine?

Don’t question her.

 

Being sick is a horrible way to live, so don’t criticise someone who suffers daily. I have Friends that have:  Menieres Disease, Fibromyalgia,  CFS Chronic MigrainesAnklosing SponylitisChiari MalformationRheumatoid arthritisAddison’s DiseaseCushing Disease,  Avascular NecrosisCrohn’s Disease, Depression, Hasimoto Thyroiditis  and others that I can’t even remember.

If you love someone…don’t question her life, she is doing the best that she can.
