Accepting Your Symptoms

I agree that one has to accept that it is okay to be ill, it happens to us more frequently perhaps, but it is important to realize that while we are sick we are not abnormal or flawed individuals. As crazy as it sounds, I have learned much from my illnesses about how to be stronger and how to be a more empathetic person. The price of being sick is sometimes at the brink of what we think we can bear, but when we carry forth we should understand that we are fit in ways that people cannot understand; just as they do not know what it means to be severely depressed, to live with chronic illness, or to know how we are able to live despite our maladies. While we are strong we also need to know when to take help and when we are at our limits.
