Response to Those Who Don’t Understand Why I’m Smiling and Sick | The Mighty

I HAVE COMPLETE SYMPATHY WITH THE WRITER OF THIS PIECE. I HAVE LOST FRIENDS WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT I HAVE PERFECTED THE ART OF FAKING BEING WELL, AND THAT I AM NOT FAKING BE ILL. OVER THE YEARS HOWEVER THOUGH I HAVE COME TO REALISE A FEW THINGS. FIRSTLY ONLY FELLOW SPOONIES REALLY KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE LIVING IN CONSTANT PAIN, SECONDLY FOR THE BEST WILL IN THE WORLD YOUR FRIENDS DON’T REALLY WANT A TRUTHFUL ANSWER EACH TIME THEY ASK HOW YOU ARE DOING (THEY KNOW THE ANSWER IS CR@P AND THEY KNOW FRUSTRATINGLY THERE IS LITTLE THEY CAN DO TO HELP OTHER THAN KEEP THEIR FRIEDNSHIP WITH YOU) AND LASTLY WITH YOUR FRIENDS WHERE YOUR PAIN, LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS, EARLY ENDS TO NIGHTS OUT AND SO ON AND SO FORTH;

THOSE THAT MIND DON’T MATTER AND THOSE THAT MATTER DON’T MIND

A response to those who don’t understand how she can be smiling and “fine” while also being sick.
