technocracygirl: Cartoon Raven from "Teen Titans" glaring at you from over the top of her book (Default)
According to [personal profile] seanan_mcguire, (who is fabulous, and you should all go and buy a copy of Rosemary and Rue [but more about that later]) it is National Chronic Illness Awareness week. So what does that mean? On the one hand, more words from people on your friendslist about causes and awareness and stuff.

On the other hand, it's about knowing what a health care plan can give you, and what will happen if you don't have one, and about your body attacking itself, and there's not much you can do about it.

Cut for my personal story )

Really, what I want to say is that a lot of chronic illnesses may be invisible, but that doesn't mean that they aren't out there. And, at least for mine, there was no warning, there was no sin, there was no being-a-bad-person. It just happened, and now I have to deal with it.
