Day 12 of “Spoonie Christmas Challenge”: hospital selfie. 🏥 I haven’t taken a lot of hospital selfies over the years, it’s usually pictures of bloodwork or weird signs in the hospital that I’ve taken haha. 💉 My mom had a bunch of pics from me in the hospital the year I got sick but I think I got her to delete them cause they made me anxious to look at (ptsd). I upload any health-related pictures (that are no longer relevant to my daily life) on a folder on my computer and then delete them from my phone. I think because looking at these pictures makes my heart sink a bit. I’m a cheerful and extroverted person with a big smile on my face even when I’m not feeling well (it’s just my personality, it doesn’t mean I’m necessarily feeling happy) so when I see pictures with tears in my eyes (like this one from 2 weeks ago 👆🏼) it doesn’t seem like the person in the picture is me. I accepted my illnesses long ago but realized that I totally separate my life into “sick me” vs. “healthy me” and my counsellor has been working on this with me a lot lately. I used to think it was odd when people used the language that they were healing from chronic illness because it sounded like it was possible to cure all chronic illness based on lifestyle changes alone (it’s not). But lately I’ve been loving this language because even if I experience the same degree of symptoms for the rest of my life, this language gives me back authority. ❤️ I’m healing right now. What will the outcome look like? Perhaps radical instant healing from God, perhaps slow healing from Him that isn’t linear, perhaps I won’t see any change in symptoms as long as I live but I’ll be emotionally healthier, perhaps a cure for POTS will be found, who knows! Either way, I am sick and I’m not in denial about that, but I am healing and I prefer to put my focus on the healing part. Everyone’s journey, and way of coping, will look different. Some people make art out of their hospital bracelets (so cool!) or get awareness ribbon tattoos to commemorate their strength. That is equally as valid and healthy. Neither is better, neither is worse. ❤️
