So today is all about friends and I may be biased but I have the best friends a girl could ask for. My friends are amazing! They are understanding and supportive of my condition, they always offer to help, always checking if I’m ok and we have a great time together. I’m not going to name names in this post, but my friends know who they are. I will however post a few photos of some of my closest friends.
These are just a few photos of my amazing friends, most were taken at my wedding a year and a half ago.
When you have a chronic illness the support network you have can be the difference between fighting on or giving up. If it wasn’t for how understanding my friends are I probably would be at home alone. You need to surround yourself with people who understand you might have to cancel last minute or you can’t go out so need to adapt plans. I have found that sometimes it can be hard for friends to understand that you aren’t able to do the things you used to do and it is important to remember that your illness doesn’t just affect you and your family but also your friends. I have found talking about the condition helps and this was one reason I started to blog in the first place.
How do your friends support you? Have your friends found your diagnosis difficult?
