Well…

How can you put a picture on an illness?

How can anyone think that an illness should look a certain way?

Or a person should look a certain way when living with a chronic illness?

Photo’s are great aren’t they? They allow us to take a snapshot of our lives, for us to keep, share with others or even on social media.

So who are we to judge if someone is having a “good day” and wants to make an effort with their outfit? Hair? Make up? Or get dressed up to go out with friends for a meal or a drink?

That doesn’t always mean they have been glammed up all day, I for one spend many a day in comfy loose clothes or dresses, but if I am well enough to go out for a couple of hours, I might choose just to make that extra bit of effort.

The pictures show different parts of my life, a lot are very recent (2018), the red dress was hmmm 2017 early 2018 I think….

So, it’s not always doom and gloom, my meds bag is covered in lemons because “when life hands you lemons”….I have lost count how many tablets I take at the moment, but….

That’s life,

Keep smiling folks, I know I will be.
