Chronic means forever.
No cure.
Not leaving.
Stuck with this, indefinitely.
It's daunting.
You cry.
You'll never "get over it"
there's hope.
One day, someday
cure found or not
your chronic illness becomes
"a thing"
not "THE thing"
not you.
I'm chronically learning,
chronic means lifelong
not lifeLESS.

As you may have guessed I'm an avid writer and reader. My dream is to change the world with my writing. One of my main goals is to spread the word about RSD a chronic pain disease which I have to fight daily.

I love reading a piece with true meaning. You have great motivation in your writing. Very good job, keep writing!

And if you get a chance, if you could check out my new story Final Regards, I would greatly appreciate the feedback.

Really though, keep writing. You have a purpose for writing. Writers like you are the ones who are going to make a difference.
