And that is the truth of it. Illness doesn’t work like that. ANY illness. No one just wills their diabetes away or their high blood pressure. Sometimes medical treatment helps, sometimes completely controls it, other times it modulates it, other times the disease is labeled ‘brittle’ — meaning it’s just a mofo and doesn’t want to respond to the drugs thrown at it. But we can for the most part hide our blood pressure and our diabetes -sometimes even from the people we live with. Diseases that affect our ability to function and move out of ourselves, not so much. Know you are loved by many and that love does not depend on anything you do. Including wash your hair. ❤ Thank you for sharing your struggle. You know many will read this and know they are not alone. Your courage is what makes you — you. THAT my dear is what defines you. ❤
