Chronic Illness and Suicide

If you have a family member or friend who is suicidal it is better to be there for them while they are alive and struggling, then to mourn them at their funeral after suicide! I have always been one to speak my mind and say exactly what it is I am thinking unapologetically without hitting an imaginary edit button in my mind (or would it be in my mouth?). I always hear people saying, while devastated by the suicide of a family member or friend, I wish I would have known or I wish there was something I could have done. Well, there was you could have been there, PERIOD! Now, this blog post is not for everyone who has ever lost someone to suicide, so please forgive me if you have lost a loved one to suicide and you feel offended. If you were there for your loved one before they did it then this is blog post is not aimed towards you. But, as sad as it is many of the people who commit suicide do so because they have reached a place in their life where they do not know where to turn, they feel completely alone (and usually are), or they just can't bare with what it is that is tormenting them (kind of like dealing with chronic illness or chronic pain).

Autoimmune disease has given me a sixth sense, as well as, THRUSH!

I know it is hard to believe, but having multiple autoimmune diseases, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain/illnesses have given me some blessings. It is quite ironic actually. When I think about it, I am very in tune so to speak, with my body, because of what I have been going through. I usually can tell that I am becoming sick or something is off with my body before the average person would be able to notice it, if at all!  This to me is one of the few, yet still blessings that I have been granted,, due to my illnesses. I like to consider myself a glass half full type of gal! So I count my blessings and am thankful for my sixth sense that Autoimmune and being sick has blessed me with, Medical Intuition!

My Diagnosis of Sick Sickly

I relate to the title of Sick Sickly also! As I told you, in the about me section, or will tell you depending on whether or not I have published it yet, when you read this, I relate to many things!
In a past life, which is what I like to call past experiences (so to speak), periods of time in which I was something and someone else at  different points in my journey, (if that makes any sense?) someone that I was close to in one of these points in time, had always called me sick sickly, and it was true, as much as I hated to hear it back then. I was always sick in one way or another whether it had to do with my illnesses that at that point I had been diagnosed with and some of them that I had not yet been diagnosed with, or it was just my weak immune system playing games with me and I caught every single bug, flu, or virus known to man throughout my entire life!
