Sometimes It All Get’s A Little Too Much

“Sometimes it all gets a little too much,
But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,
And you don’t have to be afraid because we’re all the same,
And we know that sometimes it all gets a little too much.

She would always tell herself she could do this
She would use no help it would be just fine
But when it got hard she would lose her focus
So take my hand and we’ll be alright

And she knew that she would be okay,
So she didn’t let it get in her way.”

(A Little Too Much – Shawn Mendez)

I’ve been extremely behind on updates and I’m really sorry that I’ve been neglecting this page for the last 6 months or so. Life has been, well, extremely hectic. I’ve been really sick with new and increasing symptoms, and I’ve been learning how to manage a number of new diagnoses, new treatment plans, and new specialists. Not to mention school, family, pets, disability cases, social media pages, and of course, the Undiagnosed Warriors Support Group that launched last summer and continues to grow in numbers day by day. While this all of this has been pretty exciting, I have to admit that I completely and utterly exhausted. With an ongoing, steady decline in my cognitive functioning and a ridiculous amount of writing assignments and research papers to do school, my motivation to write anything has been minimal, to say the least. However, I haven’t forgotten about this blog and the chronic illness community – in fact, it’s on my mind almost all the time. Luckily, there is light at the end of the tunnel and there is so much that I want to share with you all. I honestly can’t wait to get back to writing again and on a regular basis. I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate every single one of my readers and I want to thank you for hanging in there with me. Everyone has been so patient with me as I try to get both my health and my life back in order, and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it. In the meantime, please follow along with my social media pages because they are far easier to keep updated with all kinds of really good content, including research articles, infographics, chronic illness awareness items, inspirational quotes, and various tips/tricks for living well with an invisible, undiagnosed, or chronic condition.

    Thank you for your posts. They really help me, as I too live with an undiagnosed autoimmune disease, that we’ve been trying to get to the root of for years. Maybe we never will but I just hope to find some relief. You are a true warrior, fighting an illness and still pushing through to do the things you do, as well as help others is heroic in my eyes. Don’t ever be sorry, just do what you can and take care of yourself first and foremost. You are what matters! Thank you for that song quote today, I needed that. I’ve been really struggling the past week with being sick, because not only do I have an undiagnosed illness, I caught a cold, an ear infection and am suffering from allergies, so it’s been a heck of a week and hard to stay positive. What I find the hardest is there is so much I want to do and my body just won’t let me, at least not yet 😉 The fog hasn’t cleared up! Especially being a mom to a very active 4 year old. I get very frustrated with myself at times bc I can’t keep up. Anyway, thank you for your posts and I pray for you that it will get better!

      I’m sorry you’re having such a difficult week. I feel like I’ve been living these crazy weeks over and over again, with no relief. Unfortunately, there’s no vacation in chronic illness but the good news is that you will more than likely find a diagnosis – autoimmune diseases and rare conditions are often so difficult to find and it just takes time. I almost have all my puzzle pieces together – yet another reason that updating has been somewhat an overwhelming task. I can’t imagine having to tackle the energy of a 4-year-old on top of all these symptoms, so that tells me that you’re very much a warrior yourself. Good luck with your journey and I really do hope you get some answers soon!

    The love is right here. I’m happy to read your updates, and just joined your Facebook page, as you suggested. As you know, I was undiagnosed from 19-36 years old, and I feel your pain. Hang in there. It can get better. Yours always, Joanna
