forever-dreaming-of-someday asked: Really brave to post those pictures, it's good for people to see that 'invisible' illnesses suck just as much if not more than visible ones!

Thank you for that. I just got your message. My phone is terrible with tumblr notifications. I appreciate it because I really never post anything but my best face normally. I was just fed up of showing only my best face even on my sickness blog.

A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.

I feel like I’m going a bit crazy tonight because I’m 48 hours with pretty much no sleep and I’m going through a massive flare.

I cracked my shitty wisdom tooth on some foreign hard material in my crappy food and had to take painkillers which massively trigger my IBS and reflux symptoms.

I am exhausted, dehydrated, my skin is breaking out. In short I feel completely hideous. No one sees this me. I was dreading being tagged for a no make up selfie because my skin is awful. Thanks PCOS, IBS and dehydration. Everyone sees the made up lady to the right. The smiling through the pain Lauren. This is what is actually there underneath the painted on “healthy” me.

I don’t really know why I’m posting this but I feel really crappy and I wanted it to be evident that I am sick. I’m not the happy, strong woman I appear to my friends. I feel exhausted from this grind now. I have no more spoons :(

True happiness means forging a strong spirit that is undefeated, no matter how trying our circumstances.

I need this one tonight because I feel defeated and sad and giving up would be easier

The complete opposite of Crohn’s disease?

This probably is IBD, our insides are so delicious they are eating themselves.

Kurt Cobain’s death is trending as he died 20 years ago today. Some of the comments on Facebook call him selfish and others blame him for not getting over his issues. It bothers me because he was basically a spoonie.

He had an undiagnosed stomach problem that he self medicated because it was the worst. I am pretty much undiagnosed. I have pain and nausea everyday. Reflux knocks the wind out of me. Sometimes I just want the pain to end and maybe if I was someone noteworthy I would have taken all the drugs I could get my hands on too to get some relief and forget the pain.

I’m sad he lost his battle and although it was a combination of things I still hope that chronic pain and invisible illness continues to demand treatment and understanding. He was a spoonie and I can’t imagine being a chronic pain sufferer and being in one of the biggest bands of the decade.

I dunno I guess I take it a bit more personally because my friends don’t get what its like to be in pain 24/7. It’s a living nightmare at times.
