“It feel like my life ain’t mine”
Logic’s song 1-800-273-8255 is so relatable to chronic illness even though it’s for suicidal purposes. People with chronic illnesses tend to have depression. It’s super hard to cope with such situations and there’s no easy answer to as well. I’m not gonna sugar coat it, chronic illness is a very tough lifestyle I wish on no one. My life is so far from easy if anything it’s a huge challenge to get through my days on a daily basis.
“I don’t wanna cry anymore, I don’t even wanna die anymore”
But lyrics “I don’t wanna cry anymore, I don’t even wanna die anymore” are beyond relatable to me. In my flares(especially unmedicated) I feel like my body is giving up on me and I’m dying. Although it’s not, in fact I have the type of autoimmune disease where my body goes into overdrive to attack my cells. It’s really crazy to think the human body cares so much about you to go out of its way to protect you.
“I finally wanna be alive”
This is the end stage of chronic illness. When you get past your adversity and your hurdles you realize you wanna be here. You want to have a life. You just have to alter you lifestyle. You can still live. Don’t let chronic illness hold you back from your dreams and wishes. Be alive today.
