You Know You’re a Spoonie When…

lesbie-honest:

…you’re relieved or excited to get a new diagnosis. Not because you *want* to be sick, obviously, but because you *are* sick, and you want someone to explain to you why.

I looked at Facebook and saw all of my old friends enjoying their lives how I dreamed I would be at 18 I know I should be happy for them but I just started crying for no reason at all. My boyfriend caught me even though I tried to be alone so he wouldn’t worry and I didn’t know what to do so I…

No. No no no. You are so totally allowed to be sad. Lemme tell you a little story: I was supposed to graduate from college in May with honors and take a job in Americorps working in South Dakota doing work with youth on reservations but in January my health disappeared. I dropped out of school and still don’t have a degree let alone a job.

This is what chronic illness does. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BE UPSET ABOUT IT. it’s part of the grief process. You have to grieve what you’ve lost because we’ve all lost a hell of a lot and anyone who tells you otherwise doesn’t know shit. You don’t hate your friends for their lives. You hate your illness for taking that life from YOU. You are not being selfish at all. Not in the slightest.

So cry and scream and rage and rant as much as you need. It’s okay. You have to let yourself grieve.

I know it’s Halloween right now but it’s also breast cancer awareness month so if you can donate to some charities you should, you can click here every day to help fund for mammograms and it’s completely free, just one click, it doesn’t take long and maybe spread awareness by wearing a little pink ribbon or a pink shirt. But no ‘save the ta-tas’ stickers please. Thank you~

  • irregular menstrual cycles
  • insomnia

  • lowered immune system

it is a lot more than just “feeling anxious “

Bringing to you the world’s most uncomfortable superhero duo!
I did this as a present for my friend Jen (Medical Mystery Girl) as she just found out that she’ll have to do another round of “guess the illness”, which they are speculating may be Lupus-related Rheumatoid Arthritis. I went through the same tests four years ago and was diagnosed with RA, only to be told three year later that they think it may have been Fibromyalgia all along.
So, here we are as a crime-fighting duo. I assume we go around slapping Doctors who give misdiagnoses on account of laziness. 
(Captain Chronic Pain has been bedridden with a backache today, so Medical Mystery Girl might be on her own for now. First time doing digital colouring, still practicing character work!)
Be a hero, don’t let the pain keep you down.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

SO REBLOG THIS!! LIKE THIS!!! SPREAD IT LIKE WILDFIRE!!!!!
