You Might Be Wondering
You might be wondering why I'm up so late. It's almost ten! But, we almost forgot that I have to get my medicine, and now my dad has given me the medicine that prevents me from getting so nauseous, and then I have to wait half an hour before I take the shot. You might think it's impossible to forget, but.........I guess it's easier to think without it hacking your brain every single minute of the day. Six more days until I take it...Five more days until I take it. Well, I do feel like that sometimes, as if life was always going to be like this....a long trial, waiting and waiting....dreading and dreading....I sometimes imagine what it would be like if you didn't need to dread every single minute of the day. I mean, for me, when my mom announces some new trip we're going to take with the family, like a snow trip, and I feel the thrill of happiness and excitement and then a thrill of dread and sadness, because, for example, if I take the shot on Friday, and the trip is on Saturday, I don't feel any excitement at all. I just feel dread and sadness. Because......Well, I think of it as if I have to take this ticket before I do something, as if it's some sort of test. I wonder how it would be like, if you simply cannot wait for something that's coming two months later, all you have to do is wait and wait and wait. Nothing in the way, nothing to dread, everything is easy to go through. You should consider yourself extremely lucky. And you should keep it that way! Keep yourself healthy! If you keep on putting your health in danger than you'll probably get some awful disease (God forbid)and regret it your whole life. Don't let these things influence you. And always be thankful.
Of course, I'm thankful, my parents say that I have this disease in a mild way. And then I think if it's this hard for me, than how hard is it for others? I shudder just to think about it. But there's no easy way out of life. And you should just accept things, even if you know they're not fair. Just say, it's too bad. And always think of people who have something worse.

You know, there's nothing fun about any illness or pain or nausea.
But bad things can happen in life to nice people.. Only it's up to you to make the best of ANY bad situation.
I can see clearly how it is affecting you in a good way. It is making you think deeper about stuff, and it's obvious how stronger and wiser it is making you become.

Yes, Rebecca has JRA. When I read your blog it was like reading something that she would write. Maybe the two of you could email each other.

Hi L. I do not know what disease you have, but your blog reminds me so much of my daughter. She has RA and has to take medication every Friday night and it makes her really sick on Saturday. We plan our trips and even normal things around her medicine. When other kids are excited about it being Friday, she is dreading it. You are right that things could be worse, but it is okay to feel the way you feel too. It is your body and your illness. Life can be wonderful, try not to let it get you down. Do you mind my asking what you take medicine for? You can comment a reply.
