  • Ever been happy to be sick? To be sick and not crazy or just imagining things or whining. There is a diagnosis now, a reason for my physical complaints. The tests came back and I am sick. Not life-threatening but finally an explanation for not feeling like myself for four long years. Daily medication - a first for me. Won't feel better overnight - medications take time to be adjusted. Still, I hope that someday soon I will have the energy to live, to reclaim my life again.
