Just Getting By

Whenever my symptoms flare, I always struggle with not being able to accomplish as much as I want to do. I must make somehow peace with “just getting by. ”

I’ve come to the conclusion that this isn’t accurate, after all. While my accomplishments may pale in comparison to those achieved by a healthy individual, I absolutely should not be holding myself to this same standard of achievement.

I may look healthier than I actually am, that is for sure. My appearance, nevertheless, doesn’t negate the significant impact of my persistent symptoms.

It is enough to simply be doing my very best, on any given day. Why stress myself by trying to adhere to an totally impossible, completely unreasonable standard of achievement?
