A Bit about my Illness.

Jules Real Clarke
****Jules shares this *****

How about: a virus most get rid of within weeks. And only a few dont get rid of. And it rages.
Its discovered, damage has been done.
Then the diagnosis messes your head due to possible death sentence.
Agressive drug treatments, internal organ damage, and a constant " are the drugs going to give up" thing.
And having damage enough that toxin buildups is ten times longer to rid than those without the thing, and they acknowledge a certain amount of damage to insides that they treat you as if next stage is present in order to try and stave off next stage, where cancer or renal failure is almost definite at some point but you dont know when or if it'll happen, and the big doubt that 6 sets of drug treatments didnt work, and the current one is working but last option.
If fails = Death. Fatigue, mental head issues the lot. <---they call that invisible. Thats been with me 10 years or thereabouts. And the damage also causes other symptomatic stuff to happen. <---Honesty from jules.

    • Loraine Hardy Yeah I agree. Just because people can't see it, doesn't make it any less of an illness/disability.
